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