Stocks and Germplasm Desired or For Exchange

Request from the Gene Curators

CGC has appointed Curators for the four major cultivated groups: cucumber, muskmelon, watermelon and Cucurbita. A curator for species that fall into the Other Genera category is needed. Anyone wishing to take on this responsibility should contact the Chairman. Curators are responsible for collecting, maintaining, and distributing upon request stocks of the known marker genes. ALL INVESTIGATORS ARE REQUESTED TO FORWARD SAMPLES OF CURRENTLY HELD GENE STOCKS TO THE RESPECTIVE CURATOR.

Cucumber:

Curator: Todd C. Wehner, Dept. Horticultural Science, Box 7609, North Carolina State University, Raleigh, NC 27695-6709

Approximately 97 mutants have been described orbrought to my attention. Many of these are not in the collection. Seed increases have been made of the approximately 50 mutants received to date. Send any mutant lines that you have or can obtain. The collection is especially weak for thsoe mutants described by Kubicki and by Hutchins. Some of the desired mutants are:
