The bottle gourd (Lagenaria siceraria cv. USVL1VR-Ls) genomes is published in The Plant Journal and the genome is now available to the public. [Sept. 2017]

The Cucurbita maxima (Rimu) and Cucurbita moschata (Rifu) genomes are published in Molecular Plant and the genomes are now available to the public without any restrictions. [Sept. 2017]

New interface and new genome release. The Cucurbit Genomics Database has been redesigned and now has a new interface. Several pre-released cucurbit genome sequences and annotations including Cucurbita maxima, Cucurbita moschata and watermelon cv. Charleston Gray, were added to the database. [May, 2017]

New domain name. The Cucurbit Genomics Database can now be reached under the new domain name Requests to the old domain will be directed to the newly designed database. [May, 2017]

Cucurbita maxima genome sequences, genetic maps and SNP markers described in Zhang et al. (2015) are available. A separated manuscript describingCucurbita maxima genome sequence, annotation and analysis is in preparation [Jan. 2016]

The blast interface was updated to incldued all cucurbit genome sequences. The blast interfaces under 'genome' menu were removed [Feb. 2014]

The cucumber HapMap and the genome of a wild cucumber published in Nature Genetics [Oct. 2013]
