Heterodera Avenae Transcriptome Database


Welcome to HATDB

The cereal cyst nematode (CCN), Heterodera avenae (Wollenweber, 1924) is one of the important parasites that attack wheat and barley crops in the cereal growing areas of the world. Most damaging species on cereals has been reported to occur in Australia, Canada, Israel, South Africa, Japan, north America, Estonia and most of the European countries. Since its first report in India, it has become an endemic problem in wheat growing belts extending from northern hill regions to central India. Cyst nematodes are obligate sedentary endoparasites that reproduce by obligatory amphimixis. They have a synchronized life cycle with their host. It can survive in the soil for long periods, making it a difficult pest to manage. Pre-parasitic Juvenile (J2) and parasitic feeding female (FF) are the most important stages to identify effectors of parasitism of this parasite. The H. avenae Transcriptome Database (HATDB) has been developed with the view to provide most comprehensive information about the H. avenae. The most relevant part of the genome. The HATDB is freely available resource, which may provides user a portal to search, browse and query the data to assist the research on H. avenae and other plant parasitic nematodes.
