One of different strategies adopted by nematodes is the expression of parasitism genes in their esophageal gland cells, which are secreted (also called secretome or parasitome) via their stylet into host tissue (Davis et al., 2000; Hussey et al., 2002; Hewezi et al., 2012).

Sequencing of the RN parasitome which is made up of all the parasitic gene products secreted during the nematode parasitic cycle is of importance for understanding the parasitism in this nematode.
