Resources

The MCC aims provide information and support for investigators who are interested in using marmosets in their research. To this end, we have gathered to the most relevant and high-quality resources in one place. These include curated resources from NHP and/or marmoset consortia and primate centers, data tools and more.

curated marmoset and NHP resources 

MARMOSET WORKING GROUP (MWG)

The MWG works to strengthen communications, leverage system-wide resources, and facilitate sharing of information and best practices across US institutions housing common marmosets. The full group meets on the first Friday of the month at 2:00 PM Eastern.

PRIMATE INFO NET (PIN)

The PIN provides valuable resources about NHPs - including marmosets - in research, education and conservation. It is curated by the Wisconsin National Primate Research Center, but is comprised on thousands of individuals working with NHPs.

MARMOHUB.ORG

MarmoHub.org arose out of a community consortium for supporting the use of marmosets in biomedical research. The page provides information on relevant meetings, whitepapers and other resources.

NWM IMMUNOREAGENT RESOURCE

The goal of the New World Monkey (NWM) Immunoreagent Resource is to improve the translational value of NWM biomedical models by developing monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) that can be used in immunological assays for the identification and quantification of biomarkers of inflammation and metabolism in marmosets, owl monkeys and squirrel monkeys.

The Marmoset Genome Sequencing Consortium is a collaboration between the Baylor College of Medicine Human Genome Sequencing Center and the Genome Institute at Washington University (St. Louis, MO). A female marmoset selected from SNPRC serves as the reference animal and other individuals have also been sequenced to provide information about with-in species genetic variation.

The Marmoset Brain Connectome is an open access resource that allows for online viewing and download of MRI data in fully awake marmosets. Using the website portal, users can instantaneously view, manipulate, and download any whole-brain functional connectivity topology along with the raw datasets and preprocessing code.
