A new cucumber Gy14 genome (v2) assembled by Dr. Yiqun Weng’s group using PacBio long reads and the annotation can be accessed on the ftp site under a data release policy. [Sept., 2018]

SNPs called from GBS data of 1,234 cucumber accessions are freely available. The paper describing these data is in press. [August, 2018]

The zucchini (Cucurbita pepo subsp. pepo) genomes is published in Plant Biotechnol J. and the genome is now available in the database. [Dec. 2017]

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

The Cucurbita maxima (Rimu) and Cucurbita moschata (Rifu) genomes are published in Molecular Plant and the genomes are now available in the database 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 (CuGenDB) can now be reached under the new domain name Requests to the old domain will be directed to the newly designed database. [May, 2017]
