Abstract
<div><p><em>Bursaphelenchus xylophilus</em> is the nematode responsible for a devastating epidemic of pine wilt disease in Asia and Europe, and represents a recent, independent origin of plant parasitism in nematodes, ecologically and taxonomically distinct from other nematodes for which genomic data is available. As well as being an important pathogen, the <em>B. xylophilus</em> genome thus provides a unique opportunity to study the evolution and mechanism of plant parasitism. Here, we present a high-quality draft genome sequence from an inbred line of <em>B. xylophilus</em>, and use this to investigate the biological basis of its complex ecology which combines...
