About Globodera pallida
The nematode Globodera pallida, or golden nematode or potato cyst nematode (PCN), is one of the most economically important nematode problems of the U.K. potato industry. PCN imposes an annual cost in excess of 50 million on U.K. potato growers and threaten the future of the crop for many growers. Effective control of G. pallida is an essential requirement to maintain the competitiveness of U.K. potato production.
Genome Assembly & Annotation
The G. pallida genome was sequenced by the Parasite Genomics group at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, as described in Cotton et al (2014). The assembly version represented here is that used in the analysis for publication, and corresponds to INSDC assembly GPAL001.
The gene predictions were made by the Parasite Genomics group at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, as described in Cotton et al (2014).
