  1. Resource Description
    "The Oregon National Primate Research Center is one of 8 centers in the United States that supports non-human primate breeding and research. Our lab is committed to developing the genetic tools and resources necessary for the improved understanding of macaques, both in domestic breeding facilities and in international field settings. The current focus involves the use of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) for sub-species comparisons and for tracking phenotypes unique to certain populations. We also have extensive medical histories of hundreds of captive rhesus macaques available to us. These records, in combination with the large family pedigrees produced within the breeding colonies, allow us to genetically analyze quantitative traits of interest. Currently we are studying traits commonly found in rhesus macaques, including macular degeneration, resistance to viral diseases, diabetes, as well a variety of behavioral traits. These research efforts involve interactive collaborations with numerous investigators, both at the OHSU and at other universities."
