. Selection for resistance to GSB is of pivotal importance to melon breeding programs. Phenotypic selection is tedious and sensitive to environmental conditions. Identification of linked markers is an essential step toward both marker-assisted selection (MAS

-informed breeding involves examination of DNA of seedlings, and it is referred to as marker-assisted seedling selection (MASS). Another method involves examination of parent material before crosses occur and is commonly referred to as marker-assisted parental
