We describe our recent lattice study of SU(4) gauge theory with fermions in the fundamental and sextet representations. In this theory, a new type of baryon consists of quarks in both representations. The spectrum of these "chimera baryons" has a straightforward interpretation in terms of a non-relativistic quark model based on SU(4). Our results are particularly relevant to composite Higgs models in which the top quark is partially composite.
