Asperfest 8


The Aspergillus Stress Database ( was released in May 2008 and contains the description of 3908 stress-response
proteins (and translated genes) that may play any role in the stress response of eight Aspergillus species with fully sequenced genomes including
Aspergillus clavatus, Aspergillus flavus, Aspergillus fumigatus, Aspergillus nidulans, Aspergillus niger, Aspergillus oryzae, Aspergillus terreus and
Neosartorya fischeri. Each annotated protein was characterized with Aspergillus locus ID, its closest homologues in Saccharomyces cerevisiae,
Schizosaccharomyces pombe, Candida albicans and Neurospora crassa (gene locus IDs, protein names), a brief functional description (stress type, gene
ontology classes) and links to relevant publications (PMID IDs). The annotation of Aspergillus stress response proteins revealed the limits of yeast-based
models when genome annotation work is performed in filamentous fungi. Currently, we develop the Aspergillus Stress Database further to a more general
Fungal Stress Database.
