The synteny tool has been reimplemented to improve the overall database performance. Link to synteny information of each specific gene is now provided in the gene overview page.

To improve the readability, gene IDs for the following six genomes have been changed: bitter gourd OHB3-1 v2, melon DHL92 v4, bottle gourd Hangzhou v1, monk fruit Qingpiguo v1, sponge gourd (cylindrica) v1, Sponge gourd AG-4 v1 [Aug 2022]

A "Genotype" module has been newly developed in CuGenDBv2 that allows to extract, analyze and download large-scale variant data. [June 2022]
Version 2 of the Cucurbit Genomics Database (CuGenDBv2) is up running. Here is the release note [Apr, 2022]

SNPs called from GBS data of 2083 melon accessions are now freely available. The paper describing these data is published in Molecular Horticulture. [September, 2021]

An improved assembly of Cucurbita argyrosperma subsp. argyrosperma (v2) and a new genome assembly of C. argyrosperma subsp. sororia are available for download at our website. [April, 2021]

The wax gourd reference genome published in Nature Communications is now publicly available in the database. [Dec. 2019]
