     Behavioral studies across the order of primates have shown that this is a highly variable group when it comes to social systems and behavior. The puzzle of the genetic origins of these differences remains largely unsolved for many behavioral traits. However, with recent advances in genetic and genomic analysis, it has become more feasible than ever to identify the genetic architecture of behavioral traits. The aim of this symposium is to bring together behavioral genetics experts doing research in a wide variety of primates, using diverse approaches to the topic.
