Abstract

Allergens originating from fungal components abundantly exist in and around human life. We constructed a data portal specific for fungal allergens that includes genomic data from four Aspergillus species used by beverage industries. The fungal database contains the information of nucleotide sequences, which are similar to the coding region of already known allergens in the public database. The database will accelerate allergen identification and prediction in the fungal research field.
