Abstract

Deinococcus xibeiensis strain R13, isolated from radiation-contaminated soils, synthesizes a unique ketocarotenoid, deinoxanthin. Here, we present a 3.49-Mb assembly of its genome sequence, which can help us find the key genes of the deinoxanthin biosynthesis pathways and modify genes obtaining a high yield of the new carotenoid.
