About Meloidogyne enterolobii
The nematode Meloidogyne enterolobii, a root-knot nematode, infects a variety of crops such as eggplant, bell pepper, soybean, sweet potato, tobacco, tomato, or watermelon. It is able to reproduce on Mi-1 gene carrying crops that are resistant to other root-knot nematodes, making the species a growing economic threat.
Genome Assembly & Annotation
The assembly was produced using Illumina reads, as described in Szitenberg et al. (2017)
The annotation was produced using AUGUSTUS. WormBase obtained it from the authors' GitHub repository.
