Abstract

Root-knot nematodes (Meloidogyne spp.) cause serious damage to many crops globally. We report the high-quality genome sequence of Meloidogyne arenaria genotype A2-O. The genome assembly of M. arenaria A2-O is composed of 2,224 contigs with an N50 contig length of 204,551 bp and a total assembly length of 284.05 Mb.
