Draft Genome Sequence of Aspergillus terreus High-Itaconic-Acid-Productivity Mutant TN-484

Microbiol Resour Announc. 2019 Dec 5;8(49):e01170-19. doi: 10.1128/MRA.01170-19.


Itaconic acid is an important organic acid used in the chemical industry. Aspergillus terreus strain TN-484 is a high-itaconic-acid-productivity mutant derived from strain IFO6365. Here, we report the draft genome sequence of strain TN-484, advancing the understanding of the biosynthesis of itaconic acid in filamentous fungi.
