This is a page of informational network related to superfamily hominoidea in Japan (chimpanzee, bonobo, gorilla, orangutan, gibbon). Information such as distribution charts, maternal pedigrees, and individual records in the Japanese islands are managed as part of a database. In addition to supporting the development of academic research, the Network is also involved in the well-being and preservation efforts of similar apes. In order to accomplish this, the Network gathers information regarding apes in Japan (photographs and resources). The National Institute of genetics and Kyoto University (Primate Research Institute and Wildlife Research Center) collaborate as a part of this network, with the Primate Research Institute implementing GAIN activities as a Joint Usage/Research Center as of 2010.
