Aspergillus is a large genus of fungi in the phylum Ascomycota. There are several hundred species or types, some of which are important to medicine, science and industry. Its normal growth form is as a mould. The fungi form asexual spores in a structure called an aspergillum. About one third of types also have sexual reproduction.
