We selected 96 genes of Aspergillus luchuensis for the construction of a transcription factor gene deletion library. Of these, we successfully deleted 93 genes using Agrobacterium-mediated transformation (AMT) of A. luchuensis RIB 2604 ΔligD strains. We obtained only heterokaryonic strains after deletions of adaB, anBH1, hacA, hacB, hsf1, metR, and sonC gene, and additionally, could not obtain deletion strains for genes abaA and mcmA. The deletion strains will be available through our website (https://www.nrib.go.jp).
