Rubrobacter is a genus of Actinobacteria, given its own subclass (Rubrobacteridae).[1] It is radiotolerant and may rival Deinococcus radiodurans in this regard.[2]

Phylogeny[edit]

The currently accepted taxonomy is based on the List of Prokaryotic names with Standing in Nomenclature (LPSN) [3] and National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI)[4] and the phylogeny is based on 16S rRNA-based LTP release 111 by 'The All-Species Living Tree' Project [5]
