Improved complete genome sequence of the extremely radioresistant bacterium Deinococcus radiodurans R1 obtained using PacBio single-molecule sequencing.

Authors: Hua, Xiaoting and Hua, Yuejin

The genome sequence of Deinococcus radiodurans R1 was published in 1999. We resequenced D. radiodurans R1 using PacBio and compared the sequence with the published one. Large insertions and single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) were observed among the genome sequences. A more accurate genome sequence will be helpful to studies of D. radiodurans.
