SSR markers were explored from cucumber whole genome sequence, and selected for mapping in an F2:3 mapping populations. Expect to place 1,200 SSRs on the map. 2. SNP discovery, SNP array development and use for fine mapping SNPs will be identified through alignment of whole genome sequences of two sequenced cucumber genotypes (9930 and Gy14), validated. SNP microarray will be manufactured through contract service to a company. The array will be used for SNP linkage mapping to identify markers linked with downy mildew and ZYMV disease resistance gene. 3. Cloning of ZYMV disease resistance locus from cucumber. Will use map-based cloning strategy.
