Primate Genetics Typing Laboratory (Established 1987)
Director: William H. Stone
Mission: NIH-designated genetics laboratory for typing nonhuman primates; Serves as a research resource for genetic typing of rhesus monkeys ("Macaca mulatta"); Serves primate colonies by providing genetic typing for parentage assessment, monitoring pedigrees, colony inbreeding, colony management and breeding recommendations, and advice for specific research strategies.
Principal Research Programs: Identification and characterization of polymorphisms that can be typed using microsatellite markers. We are attempting to identify DNA markers on all of the chromosomes of rhesus monkeys.
