Aspergillus niger Micrograph.jpg
  • Aspergillus niger is a fungus and one of the most common species of the genus Aspergillus.
  • Aspergillus niger is a member of the genus Aspergillus which includes a set of fungi that are generally considered asexual, although perfect forms (forms that reproduce sexually) have been found. Aspergilli are ubiquitous in nature.
  • Aspergillus niger grows poorly on acetamide as a nitrogen or carbon source and lacks sequences detectably homologous to the amdS gene encoding the acetamidase of Aspergillus nidulans[1][2].
