Make an organism radiation-resistant?

Would it be possible to make an organism radiation resistant/self fixing? I'm thinking that it would be possible if the organism used smartly placed virocytes to change back mutated cells, but what are you guys thinking?

The best way to make a genome resistant to mutation is to optimize it to its environment. Then mutations will most likely not survive against the original genome.

Virocytes might mutate as well, so they won't give real protection. Also they are complicated to use.

I meant it more like to shield against too much radiation that would cause perfectly good organisms to die.

In the new update they will add point only mutations, allowing for species optimization without changing the creatures basic structure and style of survival.

that would make it easy to make organisms reach higher tops, to change all the settings except angles and cell types, I still not sure how this will work but sounds cool
