my country obtained the complete genome sequence of the white-headed langur for the first time

The reporter learned from the Forestry Bureau of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region on the 12th that my country obtained the complete genome sequence of the white-headed langur for the first time, revealing that the white-headed langur can be rich in minerals. The secret of the genetic characteristics of the long-lived genome in the natural environment of the high alkaline karst mountain of ions.

The research results show that the white-headed leaf monkey contains 22 pairs of chromosomes, which is one pair less than 23 pairs of chromosomes in humans. The genus langur is closely related to the genus Snub-nosed monkeys (golden monkeys), and they differentiated about 9.5 million years ago; the white-headed langurs and black langurs that belong to the same genus diverged about 4.5 million years ago, and the white-headed langurs were identified The evolutionary status and evolutionary nodes of langurs.
