Beschrijving

The Common Marmoset in Captivity and Biomedical Research is the first text dedicated exclusively to this species, filling an urgent need for an encyclopedic compilation of the existing information. Sponsored by the American College of Laboratory Animal Medicine as part of its Blue Book series, the book covers the biology and management, diseases and clinical applications, and research. 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 with many of the advantages of larger animals, such as macaques, but without the attendant physical and zoonotic risks.

Marmosets 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.



  • Presents a complete view of the marmoset, covering their biology and management, diseases and clinical applications, and research and applications
  • Includes contributions from world-renowned editors
  • Provides the first authoritative and comprehensive treatment of marmosets in biomedical research as part of the ACLAM Series
