Illumina and the San Diego Zoo Wildlife Alliance swing for the treetops and try to preserve the species with the help of genomic data
In the 1960s, with the intent to conserve a rare species of primate, the San Diego Zoo initiated a successful breeding program with red ruffed lemurs (varecia rubra) from Madagascar. After the establishment of its in-house research effort, the Zoo also elected to freeze cells from that founding population and their descendants and store them in a facility called the Frozen Zoo.
