  • Demographic data: The demographic database of CSFS is based on daily visual census and includes over 60 years of data and over 11,000 rhesus monkeys. Data includes ID, date of birth, date of death, social group, inter-group migration, and maternity.
     
  • Genetic data: The genetic database of the CPRC based on Short Tandem Repeats (STRs) includes over 5,000 rhesus monkeys. Data is used for paternity and maternal confirmation.
     
  • Skeleton collection: The collection consists of over 3,300 rhesus monkey skeletons (2,634 skeletons with known ID and life history). The LPM also offers skeletons of other 12 primate species including patas, squirrel, pigtail, vervet, stump-tail, and tufted capuchin monkeys.
     
  • Molecular Biology tools: The VL offers a set of molecular biology and bench services and tools for handling and processing samples including Real Time PCR, molecular cloning, SDS-PAGE, Western Blot, ELISA, PBMC's isolation and culture, cell proliferation, multiplex platform for cytokine detection by Luminex technology, RNA extraction, IFA experiments, and immunophenotyping and dendritic cells determination.
     
  • Immunology Core (IC): The IC is integrated into the Virology Laboratory. The IC acts as a service unit to other investigators conducting research projects at CPRC. The IC provides services in the areas of immunological assays using a state-of-the-art Bio-Plex MAGPIX, which integrates Luminex XMAP technology (Bio-Rad, Hercules, CA), and flow cytometry through the acquisition of an Attune Acoustic FACS (Life Technologies, Thermo Fisher Scientific, Waltham, MA) for cell phenotyping.
