Aspergillus clavatus NRRL 1 (ASM271v1)

Aspergillus clavatus NRRL 1 Assembly and Gene Annotation

About the Aspergillus clavatus genome

*Aspergillus clavatus* is a species of Aspergillus with conidia dimensions 3--4.5 x 2.5--4.5 ╬╝ms. It is found in soil and animal manure. The fungus can produce the toxin patulin, which may be associated with disease in humans and animals. This species is only occasionally pathogenic.
