Pan paniscus

Welcome to the Bonobo Portal within RGD. This portal contains links to data related to the bonobo, Pan paniscus, and to tools that bonobo researchers can use to find and analyze that data. Please feel free to contact us with suggestions for additional data or tools that would help advance your research.

“Bonobos, endemic to the Congo Basin, are like other ape species in developing cardiovascular disease that is often a major cause of adult mortality in captive animals. Several important cardiovascular diseases identified in bonobos and other captive ape species include hypertension, cardiomyopathy and fibrosis, congestive heart failure, aortic dissection, stroke, and most recently arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC) with associated sudden death. ARVC is a common cause of unexpected sudden cardiac death in humans, accounting for perhaps as many as 17% of sudden deaths in young individuals. Scientists from the Medical College of Wisconsin in cooperation with the Milwaukee County Zoo are trying to identify genetic causes of ARVC in bonobos through whole genome sequencing analysis.”
