Cucurbit Breeding Web Pages
The cucurbit breeding web pages at NC State University were started
in 1997 to provide a place to post information on cucurbit breeding
activities at the university. The pages have been expanded to
provide research summaries on cucumber, luffa gourd and watermelon,
full-text articles, computer software, information on project
personnel, and links to other sites.
The pages were designed to be read on a computer having a small
(15 inch) monitor set at 640 x 480 resolution without having to
scroll left and right. The information is presented in outline
format to show relationships among items, and to minimize the
use of multiple levels to find information. Graphics are kept
to a minimum, and usually in a separate area so that pages will
load rapidly for people using modem connections. Finally, each
page has an author, creation date, and modification date so it
can be cited.
