Description

Description

As we move into the post-genomic era new technologies have become available that allow for a greater and more complete understanding of non-human primate genetics. We will use these techniques to better characterize the evolutionary changes at the genomic level, including better annotation of non-human primate orthologs and characterization of evolutionary rates of change across species and genes. We will compare evolutionary rates of change for groups of genes associated with specific human diseases such as autism. We are developing bioinformatic tools for rapid and complete incorporation of genetic information into existing phenotypes, ensuring that researchers can immediately include genetics as a cofactor in their non-human primate research and to explore the relationship between genetics and environment in emerging traits.
