    About This Project

    In Peru, about 80% of the illegal trade of wildlife species commercialized in Lima come from the Peruvian Amazon, from regions where arthropod-borne viruses (arboviruses) such Dengue, Yellow fever, Chikungunya, and Zika co-circulate. Our aim is to determine whether illegally commercialized new-world primates are infected with arboviruses. To do so, monkeys confiscated by the National Forest and Wildlife Service in Lima will be screened for arbovirus infection using molecular techniques.
