Rationalization of a genebank cucumber collection with SSR markers

    Research output: Contribution to conferencePosterProfessional


    The cucumber (Cucumis sativus) collection of the Centre for Genetic Resources, the Netherlands (CGN) consists of 937 accessions. The collection mainly includes old cultivars but also contains landraces and the crop wild relative C. sativus var. hardwickii. Passport data were updated in 2002, and used to rationalize the collection. Recently, the main part of the collection was screened for microsatellite (SSR) variation.
