Biochemistry

Department of Veterinary Biochemistry

Department of Biochemistry came into existence after bifurcation of Department of Physiology & Biochemistry in the year 1948. Apart from teaching of undergraduate students, department has good facilities for post graduate teaching and research. The department has interdisciplinary interaction in teaching and research and offers technical guidance/ assistance on problem related to subject.

Department has made significant contribution in the field of rumen metabolism and effect of urea supplementation in ration on enzyme activities and other biochemical constituents, nutritional biochemistry, blood cell biochemistry of domestic animal and birds in health and disease condition along with genetic control of red blood corpuslces enzymes, biochemical polymorphism of different constituents and their relationship with economic trait in poultry, sheep and goat. biochemical study of saliva, cervical mucous, urine in farm animals, biochemical aids to disease diagnosis, biochemistry of embryogenesis in health and disease, biochemical aspects of male and female reproduction and cloning and characterization of antimicrobial peptides are some other major areas in which Department has made significant contributions.

Summer institute on “Instrumentation and analytical techniques in Veterinary Clinical Biochemistry” in 1983 and an international symposium on “foetal biology” in 1984 were organized by the Department. department has the distinction of having handled International foundation for science, Sweden funded research project “Biochemical investigation on exotic ram semen and development of artificial insemination programme using diluted and frozen semen”
