Our aim here was to discover single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in a pooled sample of Macaca fascicularis from the Indonesian island of Sumatra.
Without a reference genome, the reduced representation library (RRL) approach, coupled with high-throughput DNA sequencing, is sufficient to identify SNPs in regional populations of Macaca fascicularis.
We have collected DNA samples from other regional populations of Macaca fascicularis and are collecting a comparable dataset of SNP genotypes.
No relevant competing interests disclosed.
