Most Bursaphelenchus species feed on fungi that colonise dead or dying trees. However, Bursaphelenchus xylophilus is unique in that in addition to feeding on fungi it has the capacity to be a parasite of live pine trees. We present an analysis of over 13,000 expressed sequence tags (ESTs) from B. xylophilus and, by way of contrast, over 3000 ESTs from a closely related species that does not parasitise plants as readily; B. mucronatus. Four libraries from B. xylophilus, from a variety of life… CONTINUE READING
