Genome Sequence of an Aspergillus flavus CA14 Strain That Is Widely Used in Gene Function Studies

Microbiol Resour Announc. 2019 Aug 15;8(33):e00837-19. doi: 10.1128/MRA.00837-19.


Aspergillus flavus produces aflatoxins that adversely impact human health and the economy. We report the genome sequence of A. flavus CA14 that has been widely used in gene function studies. The information will benefit A. flavus functional genomics studies on fungal development, secondary metabolite production, and fungus-host plant interactions.
