Conclusion
- Fast and non-invasive PCR sexing of primates: apes, Old World monkeys, New World monkeys and Strepsirrhines

Our findings show that the PCR assay based on the UTX/UTY gene is reliable for sex identification in primates. The advantage of this assay is the extreme primer conservation and wide applicability and ease of use. In combination with other single locus markers, it is now possible to reliably sex individuals of most (if not all) primate species.
