We report here the complete genome sequence of a duck astrovirus (DAstV) isolated from a dead duckling in eastern China. Sequence analyses indicated that the genome of the astrovirus possessed a typical astrovirus organization. Comparison of the partial polymerase gene sequences of DAstV-1 and DAstV-2 showed that the astrovirus shared 94.4% and 64.2% nucleotide identity, respectively. The whole nucleotide sequence of the astrovirus had the highest homology with the sequence of DAstV-1 strain C-NGB (98.7%). Therefore, the strain we describe here is a DAstV-1 isolate.
