The Cucurbit Genetics Cooperative
(CGC), established in 1977, provides services for researchers interested in the genetics and breeding of species of the Cucurbitaceae crop family. CGC serves as an organizational vehicle for scientists to informally communicate the results of their research and development efforts. The cooperative emphasizes the free exchange of information and germplasm among members, both public and private. Each year, the CGC publishes a Cucurbit Genetics Cooperative Report
that includes research papers, news, gene lists and other information of interest to cucurbit researchers.
