Interpretive Summary: Foot-and-mouth disease virus causes a devastating disease affecting livestock in many countries worldwide. Here we report unpublished sequences on the viruses that circulated in cattle in Uganda between 2014-2018. The data consist of the genetic sequence of the main viral proteins that make the outer shell of the virus and that are important during infection. This information can be useful for the development of more affective vaccines

Technical Abstract: This Data report contains VP1 and complete capsid genome sequences of field Foot and Mouth Disease Virus (FMDV) isolated from cattle in Uganda between 2014 and 2018. The results were obtained by Sanger sequencing of RNA isolated from probang specimen of naturally infected cattle in Uganda.
