The genome sequence and gene prediction of Aspergillus kawachii were not determined by the JGI, but were received from the Goto Masatoshi in Kyushu University on March 3 2013. Please note that this copy of the genome is not maintained by the author and is therefore not automatically updated.

This genome was sequenced by Taiki Futagami et al. in Kyushu University. The filamentous fungus Aspergillus kawachii has traditionally been used for brewing the Japanese distilled spirit shochu. A. kawachii characteristically hyperproduces citric acid and a variety of polysaccharide glycoside hydrolases. The Aspergillus kawachii genome is 36.88 Mb.
