An overall theme of this volume is the utility of genomic approaches for the examination of primate (both human and nonhuman) biology. This volume also emphasizes biological characteristics that are relevant for risk of disease. Utilizing an evolutionary framework, the genomic study of nonhuman primates is shown to inform our knowledge of human biology. In this chapter, we supply a brief integrative synopsis of those chapters that most directly focus on nonhuman primate genomics and speculate upon where the post-genomic era may lead us.
