Interpretive Summary: The reniform nematode (Rotylenchulus reniformis Linford & Oliveira) is a major pathogen of many important crops such as cotton and soybean. To develop properly, the reniform nematode must express different suites of genes at exactly the right time during development. In this report, we describe the total gene expression that is occurring at specific life stages of the reniform nematode. This information will help researchers to better understand the biology of this pathogen and identify new ways of developing resistant crops.
Technical Abstract: The reniform nematode (Rotylenchulus reniformis Linford & Oliveira) is a semi-endoparasitic phytonematode that is a pathogen of numerous major crops such as cotton and soybean. Here, we present transcriptome assemblies of the egg, second-stage juvenile (J2), J3, vermiform adult, and sedentary female life stages of this important plant pathogen.
