Whole sequence variation map reveals insight into evolutionary studies of rhesus macaque
Date:7/21/2011

July 20, 2011 BGI (previously known as the Beijing Genomics Institute), the largest genomics organization in the world, and Kunming Institute of Zoology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, together published the whole sequence variation map of rhesus macaque (Macaca mulatta) in Genome Biology on July 6th, 2011 (http://genomebiology.com/2011/12/7/R63). The study provides available resources for evolutionary and biomedical research.

Rhesus macaque, also called the Rhesus monkey, is one of the best known species of old world monkeys. Human and Rhesus macaque share a most recent common ancestor about 25 million years ago with 93.5% identify of their genome sequences. Due to its close relationship to human genetically and physiologically, rhesus macaque is the most extensively used non-human primate animals in biomedical research and animal models for human diseases research.

"Rhesus macaque is the second non-human primate to be sequenced in the world, which is a critical non-human primate animal model. The studies on genetic variations in rhesus macaque will pose an important significance to biomedical research." stated Xiaodong Fang, project principal of BGI and the co-lead author of the study.

With the advanced genome sequencing capability of BGI, researchers sequenced a Chinese rhesus macaque genome with 11.56-fold coverage. All sequenced reads were aligned to the reference Indian rhesus macaque genome (rheMac2) by using SOAP2, BGI's improved Short Oligonucleotide Alignment Program. There is 96% of the reference Indian macaque genome covered by at least one read. Compared with the sequenced reference Indian macaque genome, 5.5 million SNPs, including 2.56 million homozygous and 2.94 million heterozygous SNPs, were identified and 125,150 structural variations (SV) were detected. They also annotated 5,187 and 962 nonsynonymous SNPs to the macaque orthologs of human disease
