Genomic sequence of the pathogenic and allergenic filamentous fungus Aspergillus fumigatus
Aspergillus fumigatus is exceptional among microorganisms in being both a primary and opportunistic pathogen as well as a major allergen. Its conidia production is prolific, and so human respiratoryExpand

The akuBKU80 Mutant Deficient for Nonhomologous End Joining Is a Powerful Tool for Analyzing Pathogenicity in Aspergillus fumigatus
ABSTRACT To increase the frequency of homologous recombination, we inactivated the KU80 homologue in Aspergillus fumigatus (named akuBKU80). Homologous integration reached about 80% for bothExpand
