ANIMAL GENETICS & BREEDING Research Achievements

  • Under the collaborative programme with the Division of Animal Genetics and Breeding, IVRI, DNA polymorphism in genes associated with growth performance (GH, GHRH and IGF-1) in mithun has been investigated
  • Least square means for important economic traits in mithun have been established
  • Karyotype of male and female mithun has been established
  • C- and R-banding techniques for mithun chromosome have been standardized
  • Characterization of partial κ-casein gene in mithun has been done
  • PCR amplification of partial leptin gene has been done
