Area of Research Interests
We are working on the isolation and characterization of Salmonella and its phages and their therapeutic potential in animals. We are also working on identification of antibiotic resistant genes in the mastitis causing organisms.
Year of Start
To evaluation the invitro and invivo therapeutic potential of bacteriophages
Development of a single multiplex PCR for identification of mastitis causing microorganisms along with the antibiotic resistant genes against commonly used antibiotics in dairy animals
