Genetic Analysis

Kaludiyapokuna Primate Conservation and Research Center

Full genome of the langurs and determine hybridization, dispersal, life history stuff We collect fecal samples for genetic analysis at our field site and opportunistically at other sites during primate surveys. Fecal samples will be exported to the US, where langur DNA will be extracted and analyzed using a genome-wide enrichment-based capture method at the University of Washington under the supervision of Dr. Noah Snyder-Mackler to determine genetic variation and hybridization. We can therefore extract the DNA from the fecal samples and map the full genome of both species of langurs and better understand if and where animals hybridize and disperse
