Veterinary Microbiology

Department of Veterinary Microbiology

Since establishment of the Department in 1950, Department has been actively involved in imparting education to undergraduate and postgraduate students.

Department has made significant scientific contributions and several new species of bacteria were reported first time in world; notable among them were Salmonella mathura, Salmonella vrindavan, Salmonella brijbhumi, Salmonella gokul and Salmonella goverdhan. Existence of Mycoplasma as the causative agent of CRD in poultry, Candida tropicalis, C parakruseii and C stellatoidea from fowls, ILT and IB in poultry, Trichophyton simi infection in chickens, dog and man, Shigella serotypes from zoo animals and birds, about two dozen serotypes of Salmonella from different hosts, E. coli including OI-KI and O78-K80 from coliseptieaemia in chicks, twenty Mycoplasma species from various hosts including Mycoplasma pneumoarthritis from kids, Listeria denitrificans from repeat breeder buffalo, Streptococcus suis from swine have been isolated and reported first time in India. Serological evidence of bovine immunodeficiency virus, a conformational epitope on gag antigen in BIV, development of recombinant antibodies against BIV using phage display antibody technology and genotypic identification of Mycobacterium avium sub-species Paratuberculosis as 'Bison type' from juvenile Capri tuberculosis are the other highlights and first reports from India.

Apart from teaching and academic research, Department has handled nine research projects funded by different funding agencies including DST, AICRP, ICAR, NATP etc. Last in the list was, Niche Area of Excellence project on “Production Augmentation in Rural Livestock through Health Intervention”. Department has organized six training programmes and two summer Institutes. More than forty Students from other Universities in the subjects of Biotechnology, Microbiology and Biochemistry have also taken trainings of different durations from time to time.

Department has excellent facilities for studying the detection of cytokines and their confirmation by m-RNA expression. Up and down regulation of cytokines by certain common Indigenous plants has been studied in the Department. Keeping in view the expertise of this Department and to disseminate the practical skill, training programme on “Cytokine Assay” was organized by this Department.
