Why this species? Found in different situations Like elephant manure and rock in Antarctic dry valleys No genuine information of genuine natural surroundings exists It can survive a thousand circumstances more radiation than a man would One be able to think about recommends it survives on the grounds that its genome is in thickly pressed rings called toroids. these doughnut like shapes keep shards of DNA in closeness after a measurement of shattering radiation, permitting the microorganism to make repairs without hunting around for many free parts

Deinococcus radiodurnas was sequenced! By: Sequencer Arthur W. Anderson Where: Oregon Agricultural Experiment Station in Corvallis When: In 1956

Slide 4

Why Sequenced? The most radiation-safe creature known to man Guinness Book of World Records as "the world\'s hardest bacterium" High measurements of radiation smash the genome, yet the living being fastens the parts back together, once in a while in only a couple of hours. To make a \'super bug\' that can tidy up the earth and persist radiation, has embedded qualities from other microscopic organisms into D. radiodurans The microbial species usually utilized as a part of ecological cleanup does not survive radiation.

Genome Stats Composed of two chromosomes (2,648,638 and 412,348 base sets) A megaplasmid (177,466 base sets) A little plasmid (45,704 base sets) Yielding an aggregate genome of 3,284,156 base sets.

Slide 6

what number papers on genome? There are at present more than 10,000 papers expounded on this genome

Slide 7

What Does This Mean? The qualities from this bacterium could be utilized t o make a \'super bug\' that can tidy up the earth and continue radiation
