Area of Research Interests
Veterinary Parasitology with special reference to Veterinary Entomology
and Acarology. Contributed in carrying out research on resistance to
acaricides, a basic problem of the farmers in Punjab. A baseline data
was generated pertaining to this area for further research Accessibility
of efficiency of acaricides will hold the key for control of ticks.
Studies were carried out in mange mite regarding efficacy of miticides
and ivermectin proved to be choice of treatment except against
demodectic mange. Molecular diagnosis of blood protozoan parasites was
done with the help of PCR on vector ticks to study the enzootic
stability of vector borne diseases. Epidemiological studies for
gastro-intestinal parasites in different agro-climatic zones of Punjab. A
baseline data has been generated to study about future research
Biochemical and molecular
detection of malathion resistance in cattle tick Rhipicephalus (Boophilus)
Development of Bio-chemical Assay
as a diagnostic tool for synthetic pyrethroid resistance in cattle tick
Hyalomma anatolicum anatolicum
Bioassay based detection of
ivermectin resistance status in cattle tick Rhipicephalus (Boophilus)
microplus from Punjab (D-2)
Molecular mapping and octopamine
receptor gene polymorphism based detection of amitraz resistance in cattle
tick Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) microplus (As Mentor)
