Volume . The Common Marmoset in Biomedical Research

Published: 1st January 2019 Editors: James Fox Robert Marini Lynn Wachtman Suzette Tardif Keith Mansfield

The common marmoset (Callithrix jacchus) has come of age in the scientific community as a behaviorally complex, cognitively advanced, small, prolific, and easily maintained nonhuman primate. It has many of the advantages of larger animals such as macaques, but without the attendant physical and zoonotic risks associated with these species. They are currently being used in diverse areas of inquiry including vision and auditory research, infectious disease, cognitive neuroscience, behavior, reproductive biology, toxicology and drug development, and aging. The marmoset genome has been sequenced and there is currently an intensive effort to apply gene editing technologies to the species. The creation of transgenic marmosets will provide researchers with a small nonhuman primate model with which to study a number of disorders, like autism, which have yet to be substantively understood.

 

The Common Marmoset in Biomedical Research is the first text dedicated exclusively to this species and will fill an urgent need for an encyclopedic compilation of the existing information. It is be sponsored by the American College of Laboratory Animal Medicine as part of its Blue Book Series.

Section 1 covers the biology and management of marmosets.   Section 2 covers diseases and clinical applications of marmosets.  Section 3 covers research and applications using the marmoset.
