Organism ImageAspergillus niger

Filamentous fungus used in biotechnology

Lineage: Eukaryota[2312]; Fungi[1035]; Dikarya[946]; Ascomycota[704]; Pezizomycotina[540]; Eurotiomycetes[148]; Eurotiomycetidae[119]; Eurotiales[89]; Aspergillaceae[73]; Aspergillus[36]; Aspergillus niger[1]
Used in industry to produce citric acid, pharmaceuticals, enzymes, and food products. The species shows great phenotypic diversity and is found globally, both as marine and terrestrial strains, producing both organic acids and hydrolytic enzymes in high amounts, and some isolates exhibit pathogenicity.The Aspergillus niger genome is approximately 34 Mb, organized in eight chromosomes.
