Interpretive Summary: Foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) is an important viral disease affecting animal health and economics through impacts on agriculture and trade. There are numerous different strains of FMD virus, and vaccination or previous infection with one strain does not protect against infection with a different strain, so it is important to monitor which strains are causing outbreaks in an area. Additionally, animals can be infected with FMDV without showing any signs of disease, and targeted surveillance of viruses from these subclinically infected animals provides important information of what strains of the virus are present within a given geographic region.
Technical Abstract: We report the near full genome sequences of 49 isolates of serotype Asia-1 foot-and-mouth disease virus obtained from subclinically infected Asian buffalo in Islamabad Capital Region, Pakistan, in 2011-2012. Sequences from subclinically infected animals are exceedingly rare and complement the more commonly available sequences acquired from clinical cases.
