Ashbya gossypii is a filamentous fungus that belongs to the order Saccharomycetales in the phylum Ascomycota. It is used as a model organism for studying filamentous growth because of the small size of the genome, its haploidy and ease of culturing. A. gossypii is also used commercially for the production of vitamin B2.

The genome sequence was published in 2004. It comprises 9.2 Mb in seven chromosomes containing 4,718 predicted protein-coding genes. The Ashbya gossypii genome project was initiated when the conservation of gene order and orientation (synteny) compared to Saccharomyces cerevisiae was noted.
