A Gram-negative, yellow-pigmented, long-rod shaped bacterium Spirosoma montaniterrae DY10T was isolated from a soil sample collected at Mt. Deogyusan, Jeonbuk Province, Republic of Korea. Cells showed extreme gamma radiation resistance with the D10 value of 12 KGy. The complete genome sequence of strain DY10T is consist of a circular chromosome (5,797,678 bp) encoding 5,116 genes, 9 rRNA genes and 39 tRNA genes. The genomic features contain the key enzymes for gamma and UVC radiation.
