Abstract

The London Planetree (Platanus acerifolia) are present throughout the world. The tree is considered a greening plant and is commonly planted in streets, parks, and courtyards. The Sycamore lace bug (Corythucha ciliata) is a serious pest of this tree. To determine the molecular mechanism behind the interaction between the London Planetree and the Sycamore lace bug, we generated a comprehensive RNA-seq dataset (630,835,762 clean reads) for P. acerifolia by sequencing both infected and non-infected leaves of C. ciliata using the Illumina Hiseq 4000 system. We assembled the transcriptomes using the Trinity De Novo assembly followed by annotation. In total, 121,136 unigenes were obtained, and 80,559 unigenes were successfully annotated. From the 121,136 unigenes, we identified 3,010,256 SNPs, 39,097 microsatellites locus, and 1,916 transcription factors. The transcriptomic dataset we present are the first reports of transcriptome information in Platanus species and will be incredibly useful in future studies with P. acerifolia and other Platanus species, especially in the areas of genomics, molecular biology, physiology, and population genetics.
