In the focus of our work are projects on the phylogeny, phylogeography and taxonomy of primates on different taxonomic levels, as well as the assessment of biodiversity in natural ecosystems.

Selected Projects:

  • Universal marker systems (sex determination, parasite detection, biodiversity assessment)
  • Molecular phylogeny of primates
  • Conservation genetics of Vietnamese primates
  • Comparative phylogeny and phylogeography of Asian catarrhine primates
  • Hybridization in primates


  • Mitochondrial DNA (cytochrome b, D-loop, genomes)
  • Nuclear DNA (marker genes, genomes)
  • PCR-based marker amplification
  • DNA enrichment
  • Sanger sequencing
  • High-throughput sequencing (WGS, RAD-seq, Amplicon-Seq)
