AIMS To design the Aspergillus flavus and Aspergillus parasiticus-specific primers and a real-time PCR assay for quantification of the conidial density in soil. METHODS AND RESULTS Aspergillus flavus and A. parasiticus-specific DNA primers were designed based on internal transcribed spacer sequences to distinguish these two species and from other… CONTINUE READING
