What CDC is doing about EV-D68 genomics? 
CDC has obtained one complete genomic sequence and six nearly complete genomic sequences from viruses representing the three known strains of EV-D68 that are causing infection at this time. CDC is comparing these sequences to sequences from previous years shows they are genetically related to strains of EV-D68 that were detected in previous years in the United States, Europe, and Asia. Also, CDC has submitted the sequences to GenBank to make them available to the scientific community for further testing and analysis.
