Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: Aspergillus flavus produces many secondary metabolites including aflatoxins. Besides conidia, the fungus uses sclerotia as another type of propagule. We obtained transcriptomes from four growth conditions of the aswA mutant, a strain impaired in sclerotial development and production of sclerotium-specific metabolites. RNA-Seq reads total 143 million were deposited at the Sequence Read Archive of the National Center for Biotechnology Information under the accession number of SRP082149. The dataset will have a significant impact on the understanding of how fungal development and secondary metabolism are co-regulated in A. flavus.
