[14th Aug, 2020] Harukei-3 genome paper has been published in Communications Biology (DOI: 10.1038/s42003-020-01172-0).

Melon (Cucumis melo L.) is an economically important crop of Cucurbitaceae family that is widely produced in the world. While melon is an important source of vitamins and minerals for human, it exhibits a wide range of naturally occurring genetic variation including both climacteric (ethylene-producing) and non-climacteric (non ethylene-producing) fruit ripening types. The Japanese muskmelon cultivar 'Earls favorite Harukei-3' is known for its excellent sweetness and rich aroma, and hence used for breeding of expensive (high-grade) muskmelon in Japan. Because of the economic importance in our country, we are using this 'Harukei-3' melon as a standard material for genetic and molecular biological studies. This database 'Melonet-DB' is devloped to enable efficient searching of genomic and gene function information especially in the Harukei-3 genome reference. Tissue-wide gene expression atlas, co-expression dataset, and DNA variant information are also available to support functional genomics research. Details of web application tools are described as follows.
