CmMDb: a versatile database for Cucumis melo microsatellite markers and other horticulture crop research.

- PLoS ONE (2015)

Bottom Line: Besides its economical and medicinal importance, Cucumis melo L. is a valuable resource and model system for the evolutionary studies of cucurbit family.We developed the first whole genome based microsatellite DNA marker database of Cucumis melo L. and comprehensive web resource that aids in variety identification and physical mapping of Cucurbitaceae family.CmMDb is a freely available web resource that facilitates the researchers to select the most appropriate markers for marker-assisted selection in melons and to improve breeding strategies.

ABSTRACT
Cucumis melo L. that belongs to Cucurbitaceae family ranks among one of the highest valued horticulture crops being cultivated across the globe. Besides its economical and medicinal importance, Cucumis melo L. is a valuable resource and model system for the evolutionary studies of cucurbit family. However, very limited numbers of molecular markers were reported for Cucumis melo L. so far that limits the pace of functional genomic research in melon and other similar horticulture crops. We developed the first whole genome based microsatellite DNA marker database of Cucumis melo L. and comprehensive web resource that aids in variety identification and physical mapping of Cucurbitaceae family. The Cucumis melo L. microsatellite database (CmMDb: http://65.181.125.102/cmmdb2/index.html) encompasses 39,072 SSR markers along with its motif repeat, motif length, motif sequence, marker ID, motif type and chromosomal locations. The database is featured with novel automated primer designing facility to meet the needs of wet lab researchers. CmMDb is a freely available web resource that facilitates the researchers to select the most appropriate markers for marker-assisted selection in melons and to improve breeding strategies.

Mentions: Cucumis melo Microsatellites Database (CmMDb) is an online relational and interactive database. The database was designed based on “Three-Level Schema Architecture” as represented in Fig 2 and was developed by using MySQL 5.0 [38] to store all the information associated with microsatellite markers. The CMap [39] schema has been integrated with CmMDb to facilitate interactive visualization of physical map and for comparative mapping (syntenic information) of the marker data with genomes of cucumber and watermelon. The schema of CmMDb is shown in Fig 3.
