Welcome to macaque.org

Macaque.org is maintained by the Division of Nonhuman Primate Systems Biology at the Washington National Primate Research Center. Here you can find information on macaque genomic and proteomic resources and see how high-throughput and computational approaches are providing new dimensions to research using macaque models of simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV) and influenza virus infection.

By combining macaque infection models with gene expression and protein abundance profiling, we are uncovering exciting new insights into the multitude of molecular and cellular events that occur in response to virus infection. A better understanding of these events may provide the basis for innovative antiviral therapies and improvements to vaccine strategies.
