Congratulation to ISG faculty, Jessica Lynch Alfaro and EEB faculty, Michael Alfaro who were awarded a grant through the Sao Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP), "Phenotypic plasticity of robust Capuchin monkeys (genus Sapajus): research on the effects of distinct ontogenetic trajectories and context-dependent activation," under PI Patricia Izar, Psychology Department, University of Sao Paulo, Brazil. This is an interdisciplinary grant that will study behavioral development in four wild populations of Capuchin monkeys in Brazil. Dr. Lynch Alfaro will be heading up the sequencing of genomes of 10 Capuchin monkey species, and subsequently developing a SNP-chip for population-level genomic analyses of Capuchin monkeys using non-invasive sampling techniques.
