About Heterodera glycines

The soybean cyst nematode, Heterodera glycines, is a plant-parasitic nematode infecting soybean roots. SCN has threatened the U.S. crop since the 1950s, and is also a problem in soybean growing areas of Latin America and Asia.

Genome Assembly & Annotation


The assembly was prepared using PacBio long reads. Manuscript in preparation (preprint).


Gene models were obtained from AUGUSTUS predictions, guided by de novo evidence and available RNASeq data. \n \nHere we present a slightly filtered down version of the annotation published by authors on their site, http://scnbase.org .
