We describe a method to decipher the complex inter-relationships between metabolite production trends and gene expression events, and show how information gleaned from such studies can be applied to yield improved production strains. Genomic fragment microarrays were constructed for the Aspergillus terreus genome, and transcriptional profiles were generated(More)
Some 17 strains of filamentous fungi, encompassing 13 different species, were tested for their ability to decolorize the polymeric dye R-478. Decolorization was observed with both living and dead mycelia of the three Aspergillus species tested, indicating bioadsorption, not biodegradation. With mycelia of other strains tested, the most decolorization was(More)
DNA polymorphisms were used to infer relationships of a morphologically distinct new strain of aflatoxin-producing Aspergillus to other members of Aspergillus sect. Flavi. The new strain produced both Band G aflatoxins, and differed both morphologically and physiologically from other aflatoxin producers. Three isolates of the new fungus were compared with(More)
