Abstract

In a recent paper, Liu et al. documented the changes in gene expression as stationary phase Deinococcus radiodurans cultures recover from acute exposure to gamma radiation. Given that the biochemical details of the response of D. radiodurans to ionizing radiation are poorly understood, this work represents an important first step towards achieving an understanding of the ionizing radiation resistance in this species.
