1. Backcross C. hystrix-cucumber amphidiplod with cultivated cucumber to obtain backcross progeny. 2. Use genome in situ hybridization to examine introgressed C. hytrix chromosomes in cucumber genetic background. 3. Develop molecular markers to monitor transmission of C. hystrix chromsomes in backcross derivatives. 4. Phenotypic characterization of introgression lines though greenhouse and field tests.
