Major scientific achievements:

Project Handled during Last 5 Years

1 “Identification of superior germplasm for development of national milch herds”
2. SRC Project “Faster multiplication of superior germplasm through ETT”
3. Mission Mode NATP Project:  “Production of superior males through Embryo Transfer Technology”.
4. Signal transduction mechanisms in buffalo sperm functions; Analysis of Phosphoproteome and Transcriptome in fresh and cryopreserved semen

Technology Developed

1.            Production of superior males through ETT Technique was standardised and genetic gain through ETT was evaluated in different species under NATP –Mission Mode project. This can be implemented for faster multiplication of superior germplasm.
2.            Development of Plant Based extenders for semen freezing experiment in half way for development into a technology for freezing of semen in non animal origin extender for international trade of semen.
3.            Incorporation of Vitamin E as an antioxidant in Semen extender for improving fertility of poor quality semen.
4.            Development of HACCP protocol for semen laboratory for quality semen production.
