Genome size or C-value is defined as the total amount of DNA contained within a haploid chromosome set and is regarded as a species-specific constant. Speciation among neotropical primates seems to be accompanied by marked quantitative changes in DNA content. A direct correlation between genome size and the presence of heterochromatin has also been(More)
BACKGROUND Captive primates are often maintained in groups without geographic origin or genetic heritage information. This could lead to an incorrect assignment of species, which could result in an inadequate management of the colonies. METHODS We present a cytogenetic protocol adapted to be successfully used in an accurate taxonomic diagnosis of(More)
