Arias RS, Mohammed A, Orner VA, Faustinelli PC, Lamb MC, Sobolev VS. 2020. Sixteen draft genome sequences representing the genetic diversity of Aspergillus flavus and Aspergillus parasiticus colonizing peanut seeds in Ethiopia. Microbiol Resour Announc 9:e00591-20. https://doi.org/10.1128/MRA .00591-20.


Draft genomes of 16 isolates of Aspergillus flavus Link and Aspergillus parasiticus Speare, identified as the predominant genotypes colonizing peanuts in four farming regions in Ethiopia, are reported. These data will allow mining for se- quences that could be targeted by RNA interference to prevent aflatoxin accumula- tion in peanut seeds.
