Genomics

In this research topic we are involved in the analysis of genome sequences of different primates species and use this information to investigate their genetic variability and evolution.

Selected Projects

  • Participation in various primate genome projects
  • Use of SNPs for population genetic issues

Carbone et al. (2014): Gibbon genome and the fast karyotype evolution of small apes. Nature 513: 195-201

Zhou et al. (2014): Whole-genome sequencing of the snub-nosed monkey provides insights into folivory and evolutionary history. Nat Genet 46(12): 1303-1310

Methods

  • Next-generation sequencing
  • High-throughput SNP typing
  • Various bioinformatic analysis tools
