See text

Rhizopus oryzae is a fungus that lives worldwide in dead organic matter. An opportunistic human pathogen, it is one causative agent of zygomycosis (more properly mucormycosis). The RA 99-880 strain, which was isolated from a fatal infection, had its genome sequenced by the Broad Institute in 2004–2005. However more recent analyses indicate that this strain actually belongs to a very closely related species, Rhizopus delemar.[1] Rhizopus strains including R. oryzae are used (mainly in Asian) in the food industry and its products are generally recognised as safe.
