Rhesus Monkey Genome Sequenced

Rhesus Monkey Genome Sequenced. The macaque genome is the third primate genome to be completed after human and chimpanzee. In conjuction with the publication of the genome sequence of the rhesus macaque in the 13 April edition of Science, we have created a special online collection. It includes an interactive poster with images, video and text, and a corresponding lesson plan for use in high school classrooms, which delves into evolutionary biology and what can be learned from the genome of the macaque -- one of biology’s most important model organisms. Access to the online extras, as well as to the genome papers themselves, is free to all visitors to www.sciencemag.org. Please share this information with anyone who might find it useful. Go to the special online collection for the macaque genome. ..................... ZenMaster
