Soybean aphid (Aphis glycines; SBA) and soybean cyst nematode (Heterodera glycines; SCN) are two major pests of soybean (Glycine max) in the United States of America. This study aims to characterize three-way interactions among soybean, SBA, and SCN using both demographic and genetic datasets. SCN-resistant and SCN-susceptible soybean cultivars with a combination of soybean aphids (biotype 1) and SCN (HG type 0) in a randomized complete block design (RCBD) with six blocks were used to evaluate the three-way interactions in a greenhouse setup. Treatments receiving SCN were infested at planting with 2000 nematode eggs, and the treatments with soybean aphids were infested at second trifoliate growth stage (V2) with 15 soybean aphids. The whole roots were sampled from plants at 5 and 30 days post SBA infestation for RNA sequencing using Illumina Hiseq. 3000. The data comprises of 47 libraries that are useful for further analyses of important genes, which are involved in interaction effects of SBA and SCN on soybean.
