Title EMSL Microbiologist Contributes to the Identification of 7 New Species of Aspergillus Section Flavipedes
Introduction EMSL Analytical congratulates Dr. Željko Jurjevic on his discovery.

Cinnaminson, NJ, February 3rd, 2015

Seven new species of fungi related to Aspergillus section Flavipedes were identified by a group of scientists including Dr. Željko Jurjevic, Senior Mycologist at EMSL Analytical, Inc. Other key members to the discovery included Vit Hubka, Alena Nováková, Miroslav Kolarík and Stephen W. Peterson.

Aspergillus section Flavipedes contains species found worldwide in soils and rhizospheres, indoor and cave environments, as endophytes, food contaminants and occasionally as human pathogens. Isolates from section Flavipedes, A. janus, A. brevijanus and closely related species were studied by phylogenetic analysis of DNA sequence data from four loci, PCR fingerprinting, morphology and physiology.

Aspergillus section Flavipedes includes three known and seven new species including A. ardalensis, A. frequens, A. luppii, A. mangaliensis, A.movilensis, A. polyporicola and A. spelaeus. The research has been published in the January/February 2015 issue of MYCOLOGIA (Vol.107, Num. 1).
