Abstract: 

Aspergillus terreus species complex is an opportunistic fungal pathogen increasingly implicated in invasive infection, as well as chronic respiratory disease. Currently, an understanding of A. terreus pathogenicity is impeded by a limited number of whole-genome sequences of this fungal pathogen. We here describe a high-quality whole-genome assembly of European A. terreus clinical isolate M6925, derived by single-molecule real-time sequencing with short-read polishing.
