Draft Genome Sequences of Aspergillus and Penicillium Species Isolated from the International Space Station and Crew Resupply Vehicle Capsule

Microbiol Resour Announc. 2021 Apr 1;10(13):e01398-20. doi: 10.1128/MRA.01398-20.


The draft whole-genome sequences (WGS) of 30 fungal strains isolated from the International Space Station and belonging to the Penicillium and Aspergillus genera were assembled. The WGS will allow for detailed genomic characterization to determine the possible applications and importance for space and biotechnological industries.
