supplemental data file including 5 supplemental MS Excel tables (Table S1 to Table S5). Table S1. Melon (Cucumis melo L.) linkage map developed from the Q3-2-2 × Top Mark F2 mapping population. LG 1 to 12 corresponded to melon Chromosomes I to XII, respectively. Table S2. Linkage map of melon (Cucumis melo L.) developed from a RIL mapping population between WI 846-1 and Top Mark. LG 1 to 12 corresponded to melon Chromosomes I to XII, respectively. Table S3. The melon (Cucumis melo L.) consensus map developed from map integration of the F2 (Q3-2-2 × Top Mark) and RIL (WI 846-1 × Top Mark) linkage maps, and syntenic relationships of cucumber (C. sativus L.) and melon chromosomes. Table S4. Molecular markers mapped in cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.) and their associated scaffolds in the Gy14 and 9930 draft genomes. The map positions of these scaffolds on cucumber maps were used to infer syntenic blocks between melon (C. melo L.) and cucumber chromosomes. Table S5. Cucumber-melon chromosome syntenic relationships inferred from the EST-based melon linkage map by Deleu et al. [36]. Primer sequences of highlighted markers were not presented in Deleu et al. [36]
