Poster 156: Ellie Goodrich – Determining sex and kinship in wild savanna chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes verus) from West Africa

<< Return to the Virtual URS Main Page

Faculty mentor: Timothy Webster

This project focuses on chimpanzees from Senegal, a country at the most western point of the continent. In this region chimpanzees are threatened by bushfires and human alterations to their habitats (such as mining and urban development). This places constraints and barriers on chimpanzee movement and gene flow between populations. The goal of this project is to use noninvasively collected DNA to assess kinship and investigate population structure in a wild population of chimps from Senegal.
