European discovery sheds light on how melon crops resist CMV virus

Latest research conducted by the Centre for Research in Agricultural Genomics (CRAG) in Spain has identified a protein that could make melons resistant to the destructive cucumber mosaic virus (CMV). This pathogen can infect over 1200 plant species, including important crops like cucumbers and melons, and has been a persistent problem for farmers worldwide.
