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.

Training Opportunities: Educational opportunities available for: Undergraduate; Field work opportunities not available; Financial support rarely available; Note: We are largely a research/service laboratory involving undergraduate students

Number of Staff: 9-11

Supported Species: Macaca mulatta (rhesus macaque)
