- ... Aflatoxins are toxic secondary metabolites produced by members of the genus Aspergillus, most notably A. flavus. Non-aflatoxigenic strains of A. flavus are commonly used for biocontrol of the aflatoxigenic strains to reduce aflatoxins in corn, cotton, peanuts and tree nuts. However, genomic differences between aflatoxigenic strains and non-aflatoxigenic strains have not been reported in detail, th ...
