Deinococcus phoenicis strain 1P10MET is a radiation- and desiccation-resistant bacterium isolated from a cleanroom facility where the Phoenix Lander spacecraft was assembled. In order to facilitate investigations of the nature of the extreme resistance of D. phoenicis to bactericidal factors, a draft genome sequence of D. phoenicis was determined.
