Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: Aspergillus flavus is a saprophyte and an opportunistic plant pathogen. It is capable of producing carcinogenic aflatoxins. We treated A. flavus CA42 with the volatile decanal and analyzed changes in the transcriptomic profiles at different stages of growth and development. Paired-end RNA-Seq reads from four samples that passed the quality control procedures total over 120 millions. The sequence reads were deposited at the Sequence Read Archive of the National Center for Biotechnology Information under the accession number of SRX471362. The dataset will have a significant impact on the understanding of how plant volatiles affect Aspergillus flavus growth, development and secondary metabolism.
