Evolutionary and Biomedical Insights from the Rhesus Macaque Genome
The rhesus macaque (Macaca mulatta) is an abundant primate species that diverged from the ancestors of Homo sapiens about 25 million years ago. Because they are genetically and physiologicallyExpand

Comparative and demographic analysis of orangutan genomes
‘Orang-utan’ is derived from a Malay term meaning ‘man of the forest’ and aptly describes the southeast Asian great apes native to Sumatra and Borneo. The orang-utan species, Pongo abelii (Sumatran)Expand

Demographic Histories and Patterns of Linkage Disequilibrium in Chinese and Indian Rhesus Macaques
To understand the demographic history of rhesus macaques (Macaca mulatta) and document the extent of linkage disequilibrium (LD) in the genome, we partially resequenced five Encyclopedia of DNAExpand

An initial genetic linkage map of the rhesus macaque (Macaca mulatta) genome using human microsatellite loci.
Rhesus macaques (Macaca mulatta) are the most widely used nonhuman primate species in biomedical research. To create new opportunities for genetic and genomic studies using rhesus monkeys, weExpand

Amygdalar and hippocampal substrates of anxious temperament differ in their heritability
Anxious temperament (AT) in human and non-human primates is a trait-like phenotype evident early in life that is characterized by increased behavioural and physiological reactivity to mildlyExpand

Comprehensive transcriptional map of primate brain development
The transcriptional underpinnings of brain development remain poorly understood, particularly in humans and closely related non-human primates. We describe a high-resolution transcriptional atlas ofExpand

Gibbon genome and the fast karyotype evolution of small apes
Gibbons are small arboreal apes that display an accelerated rate of evolutionary chromosomal rearrangement and occupy a key node in the primate phylogeny between Old World monkeys and great apes.Expand

Why primate models matter
Research involving nonhuman primates (NHPs) has played a vital role in many of the medical and scientific advances of the past century. NHPs are used because of their similarity to humans inExpand

Identifying the morphological signatures of hybridization in primate and human evolution.
Recent studies point to contact and possible admixture among contemporaneous hominin species during the Plio-Pleistocene. However, detection of hybridization in fossils-and especially fossilExpand

Kinda baboons (Papio kindae) and grayfoot chacma baboons (P. ursinus griseipes) hybridize in the Kafue river valley, Zambia
The ranges of small kinda (Papio kindae) and much larger grayfooted chacma (P. ursinus griseipes) baboons adjoin in the Kafue National Park, Zambia. In a visual survey of baboons at 48 sites in theExpand
