Cucurbitaceae '98

November-December 1998

Cucurbitaceae '98 will be held from 30 November through 4 December 1998 at the Asilomar Conference Center in Pacific Grove, California, USA. Cucurbitaceae '98 will be convened by the American Society for Horticultural Science (ASHS), the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), the Cucurbit Genetics Cooperative (CGC) and The Cucurbit Network (TCN). All persons engaged or interested in collection, preservation, characterization, evaluation, and enhancement of cucurbit germplasm research are invited to participate in this symposium. The symposium will address six broad subject areas: germplasm resources, genetics, breeding, pathology, entomology, and production.
