We studied phylogenetic relationships of 39 primate species using sequences of the ε-globin gene. For 13 species, we also included flanking sequences 5′ of this locus. Parsimony analyses support the association of tarsiers with the anthropoids. Our analysis of New World monkeys supports the model in which the callitrichines form a clade with Aotus, Cebus, and Saimiri, with Cebus and Saimiri being sister taxa. However, analysis of the 5′ flanking sequences did not support grouping the atelines… 
Update on the Phylogenetic Systematics of New World Monkeys: Further DNA Evidence for Placing the Pygmy Marmoset (Cebuella) within the Genus Callithrix
TLDR
The DNA evidence shows not only that Callithrix must include C. pygmaea to be monophyletic but also that the times of separation of pyGmaea and the argentata and jacchus species groups from one another are to be expected for species in a single genus.
Phylogenetic relationships and divergence times among New World monkeys (Platyrrhini, Primates).
Development and application of a phylogenomic toolkit: resolving the evolutionary history of Madagascar's lemurs.
TLDR
The phylogenomic toolkit is used to develop 11 novel markers from nine chromosomes, representing approximately 9 kb of nuclear sequence data, and yields a data set of more than 16 kb that will be of value to other studies of primate phylogeny and diversification.
Evolution of the SEC1 gene in New World monkey lineages (Primates, Platyrrhini).
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis of the SEC1 gene, transition/transversion rates, and nucleotide sequence alignment support the hypothesis that primate SEC1 evolved by divergent evolution, and that the lack of activity in some lineages occurred independently at least twice in New World primates.
Alu insertion loci and platyrrhine primate phylogeny.
Primate jumping genes elucidate strepsirrhine phylogeny.
TLDR
It is concluded that strepsirrhines originated in Africa and that Madagascar and Asia were colonized by respective single immigration events.
New World monkey phylogeny based on X-linked G6PD DNA sequences.
Molecular Phylogenetics of the Callitrichidae with an Emphasis on the Marmosets and Callimico
TLDR
This chapter reviews, synthesize, and analyze the molecular evidence that has been used to elucidate the taxonomy within the Callitrichidae, and examines the sister relationship of Callimico to the marmosets.
Phylogenetic Relationships of Spider Monkeys (Ateles) Based on Mitochondrial DNA Variation
TLDR
Results of this investigation suggest patterns of gene flow, evolutionary relationships, and speciation patterns that are more plausible than previous pelage-based taxonomies, which required seemingly impossible patterns of Gene flow.

Evidence on primate phylogeny from ε-globin gene sequences and flanking regions
TLDR
Analysis of the ε-globin data supports the hypothesis that the aye-aye (Daubentonia madagascariensis) shares a sister-group relationship with other Malagasy strepsirhines (all being classified as lemuroids).
Molecular Evolution of the vq-Globin Gene Locus : Gibbon Phylogeny and the Hominoid Slowdown ’
TLDR
The additional gibbon and galago sequence data provide further support for the occurrence of a graded evolutionaryrate slowdown in the descent of simian primates, with the slowing rate being more pronounced in the great-ape and human lineages than in the gibbon or monkey lineages.
Molecular evolution of the psi eta-globin gene locus: gibbon phylogeny and the hominoid slowdown.
TLDR
The additional gibbon and galago sequence data provide further support for the occurrence of a graded evolutionary-rate slowdown in the descent of simian primates, with the slowing rate being more pronounced in the great-ape and human lineages than in the gibbon or monkey lineages.

The DNA evidence shows not only that Callithrix must include C. pygmaea to be monophyletic but also that the times of separation of pyGmaea and the argentata and jacchus species groups from one another are to be expected for species in a single genus.
Molecular phylogeny of the New World monkeys (Platyrrhini, primates) based on two unlinked nuclear genes: IRBP intron 1 and epsilon-globin sequences.
TLDR
The maximum parsimony trees found, first with IRBP sequences alone and then with tandemly combined IRBP and epsilon-globin gene sequences from the same species, supported a provisional cladistic classification with the following clusters.
DNA evidence on the phylogenetic systematics of New World monkeys: support for the sister-grouping of Cebus and Saimiri from two unlinked nuclear genes.
TLDR
The present evidence is best represented in an interim cladistic classification of ceboids by dividing the superfamily Ceboidea into three families: Atelidae, Pitheciidae, and Cebidae.
Molecular phylogeny of the New World monkeys (Platyrrhini, primates).
TLDR
The sister-group relationships of Brachyteles and Lagothrix, Saguinus and Leontopithecus, and Callimico with a Cebuella/Callithrix clade is not as well supported by the parsimony and bootstrap analyses and is not incorporated in the proposed cladistic classification.
Primate evolution at the DNA level and a classification of hominoids
TLDR
The genetic distances among primate lineages estimated from orthologous noncoding nucleotide sequences of β-type globin loci and their flanking and intergenic DNA agree closely with the distances estimated by cross hybridization of total genomic single-copy DNAs.
A molecular view of primate phylogeny and important systematic and evolutionary questions.
TLDR
Rates of DNA sequence evolution appear to have been fastest in the early primates ancestral to Anthropoidea and next fastest on the lorisoid branch and slowest over the past 25 Myr of hominoid descent, suggesting that mechanisms lowering the mutation rate evolved in correlation with lengthened life spans.
Reduction of two functional gamma-globin genes to one: an evolutionary trend in New World monkeys (infraorder Platyrrhini).
TLDR
Preliminary phylogenetic considerations indicate that the stem platyrrhines, ancestral to all New World monkeys, had gamma2 as the primary fetally expressed gamma gene.
