Deuteromycota- Aspergillus niger 

The fungi in Phylum Deuteromycota undergo asexual reproduction.  When produced, asexual spores are conidial.  The organisms undergo no sexual reproduction.  Most fungi have a well-developed, septate mycelium, but some are siphonaceous.  The cell walls of these organisms are composed of chitin and glucan.

The Phylum Deuteromycota contains one of the most important fungi known to man: Penicillium chrysogenum, which produces an antibiotic which triggered revolution in the treatment of bacterial infectious diseases.  Penicillin is used to treat many infections experienced by humans.  Other species in Phylum Deuteromycota are used in making drugs, bleu cheese, and soy sauce.

Examples of important organims in Phylum Deuteromycota include: Aspergillus niger and Penicillium camemberti.
