Abstract

Itaconic acid is an important organic acid used in the chemical industry. Aspergillus terreus strain IFO6365 is one of the highest-yielding itaconic acid-producing wild-type strains. Here, we report the draft genome sequence of IFO6365, enhancing the understanding of the role and biosynthesis of itaconic acid in this fungus.
