  1. Macaca fascicularis


  1. Resource Description
    "We 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."
