Deinococcus koreensis SJW1-2Twas isolated from river water and was observed to be highly resistant to gamma radiation. In this study, we report a draft genome sequence which revealed that SJW1-2Tpossesses genes involved in nucleo- tide excision repair. The primary genomic information will aid in elucidating the DNA repair mechanism during ionizing radiation.
