Genomic Insights into Lineage Specific Variation in Macaque Social Behavior

Semester: Fall 2021

Presentation description

This project uses coding methods to examine lineage specific variation in macaque social styles. I used 8 macaque samples, one human, and one baboon and mapped them to a reference genome. After assessing quality and assembling exomes I am in the process of testing for positive selection on social genes which were obtained from a literature review. If positive selection is found in the lineage we will understand more about how phylogeny plays a roll in macaque social systems.
