Computer analysis of the complete genome of Deinococcus radiodurans R1 has shown that the number of insertion sequences (ISs) and small noncoding repeats (SNRs) it contains is very high, and comparable with those of Escherichia coli. IS elements and several families of SNRs are described, together with their possible function in the D. radiodurans genome.
