Rhesus macaque is an important animal model for many human diseases including AIDS

Lineage: Eukaryota[11633]; Metazoa[5514]; Chordata[2675]; Craniata[2650]; Vertebrata[2650]; Euteleostomi[2628]; Mammalia[720]; Eutheria[546]; Euarchontoglires[223]; Primates[90]; Haplorrhini[66]; Catarrhini[50]; Cercopithecidae[38]; Cercopithecinae[26]; Macaca[10]; Macaca mulatta[1]
Primates are the closest evolutionary relatives to humans and represent important animal models to study human biology and disease. The rhesus macaque, Macaca mulatta, is the most widely used primate organism for research. Their similarity to humans makes them invaluable models to study neuroscience, behavior, reproduction, AIDS, pharmacology, More...
