Filamentous fungi have long been used for production of a range of valuable products; with the advent of molecular biology, it became apparent that these fungi possess considerable potential as expression hosts for the production of heterologous proteins and small molecules. Aspergillus is an important genus, including well known species of economically significant molds, and widely used for basic genetic research. The development of a genetic engineering "toolkit" for Aspergillus, such as… CONTINUE READING
