Complete coding genome sequences of five foot-and-mouth disease virus (FMDV) serotype O strains that were isolated from the field between 2015 and 2016 showed five lineages within the EA-2 topotype circulating in four different regions (northern, western, eastern, and central) of Uganda. The genomic diversity may help in devising FMDV control strategies for Uganda.
