The complete genome of foot-and-mouth disease virus (FMDV) vaccine candidate strain O/YM/YN/2000 was sequenced and analyzed. Seven overlapping cDNA fragment which covered the O/YM/YN/2000 genome were amplified by RT-PCR and sequenced. The results showed that the complete genome of the strain O/YM/YN/2000 has 8 133 nucleotides (nt) in length including a 1 053 nt 5′- untranslated region (UTR) (including 18 nt poly C), a 6 969 nt open reading frame (ORF), a 93 nt 3′-UTR and at least 18 nt poly A tail. The homologous comparison and phylogenetic analysis of the nucleotide and deduced amino acid (aa) sequences among O/YM/YN/2000 and other FMDV strains available deposited in GenBank were performed. Phylogenetic analysis based on the complete genome and VP1 revealed that that the strain O/YM/YN/2000 is clustered in the FMDV serotype O cathay topotype. Fragment deletions mutation in O/YM/YN/2000 were revealed, deletions involving 4 nt in the S fragment of 5′-UTR, 43 nt which possibly contributed to the loss of pseudo-knot domain II of 5′-UTR and 10 aa residues in 3A protein. The results in this research might provide some information for screening FMDV vaccine strain
