About Meloidogyne incognita

The nematode Meloidogyne incognita, also known as the southern root-knot nematode, is able to infect the roots of almost all cultivated plants. It is an obligatory sedentary parasite that reproduces by mitotic parthenogenesis. M. incognita can infect Arabidopsis thaliana, making it a key model system for the understanding of metazoan adaptations to plant parasitism.
