A Gram-positive, short-rod shaped and non-motile bacterium Deinococcus actinosclerus BM2(T), resistant to gamma and UV radiation, was isolated from a soil sample collected in South Korea. Strain BM2(T) showed high resistance to gamma radiation with D10 value of 9 kGy. The complete genome of D. actinosclerus BM2(T) consists of a single chromosome (3,264,334bp). The genome features showed the presence of intracellular proteases that help to eliminate radiation-induced ROS during recovery from ionizing radiation damage. Copyright © 2016 Elsevier B.V.
