Genome Sequence of Enterovirus D68 from St. Louis, Missouri, USA, 2016

Genome Announc. 2017 Mar 2;5(9). pii: e01630-16. doi: 10.1128/genomeA.01630-16.


Enterovirus D68 (EV-D68) was rarely observed prior to a widespread outbreak in 2014. We observed its reemergence in St. Louis in 2016 and sequenced the EV-D68 genomes from two patient samples. The 2016 viruses in St. Louis differed from those we had sequenced from the 2014 outbreak but were similar to other viruses circulating nationally in 2016.
