    Research work in various laboratories at the Animal Biotechnology Centre is focused on three main areas namely embryo biotechnology, animal genomics and proteomics & structural biology. Major areas of interest in embryo biotechnology include in vitro embryo production, animal cloning, production of transgenic animals, embryonic and adult stem cells and cryopreservation of gametes. The Centre holds the distinction of producing world’s first IVF buffalo calf, world’s first buffalo calf produced through Hand-made cloning and India’s first goat kid produced by IVF. The focus of research in animal genomics is on understanding animal reproduction at molecular level, studying the role of miRNAs and remodeling sperm surface for improving reproductive efficiency in buffalo. The Centre has developed PCR-based assays, many of which have been patented. The focus in proteomics is on development of diagnostic kits for early pregnancy detection and identification of subclinical mastitis, and understanding proteomics of milk production and lactation. Another area of interest is to develop novel inexpensive technology for sexing of semen. The structural biology research is aimed at development of bioactive recombinant proteins for human use. In addition to these, the Centre has a laboratory on bioinformatics. Some other areas of research are understanding antibiotic resistance in mastitis-causing bacteria and the use of mesenchymal stem cells for treatment of diseases in dairy animals.
    Currently, we have 13 externally-funded research projects funded by DBT, ICAR-NASF, SERB-DST and Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, USA with the more than 14 crores of funds. Besides these, there are several in-house research projects funded by NDRI. The Centre has the distinction of publishing a large number of research papers every year in scientific journals having high impact factor.
    The Centre offers Masters and Doctorate (Animal Biotechnology) degree programs to cater to the need of scientists and researchers in the field of dairy, animal and veterinary sciences in ICAR institutes, agricultural universities and, state and central govt. funded institutions. A summer training program is organized every year to provide on-bench training to post-graduate students of biotechnology from all over India. Currently the Centre has 10 faculty members, 38 M.Sc., M.Tech. and M.V.Sc. students, 75 Ph.D. students, 20 JRFs, SRFs and Research associate, and 4 Post-doctoral researchers and Young Scientists are working at the centre.

    Our research activities are focused on four major areas namely the embryo biotechnologies, animal genomics, proteomics & system biology and stem cell biology. Faster multiplication of superior germplasms of dairy animals by the application of hand-made cloning technology remains one of the prime areas of our current research. Identification of superior animals utilizing the candidate genes/proteins related to economic and physiological traits of dairy animals ensuring faster genetic gains in animals and development of the selection criteria for dairy animal is the other major area.  Fundamental knowledge of one gene synthesizes many proteins is being investigated at the centre to assess the economic traits of dairy animals by utilizing in vitro embryo production system followed by the molecular investigations. Exploring the reproduction traits and disease resistance qualities of Indian dairy breeds are the current interests of the research groups. Proteomics is another branch of the functional genomics, responsible for improvement of dairy production, productivity and processing areas. With the introduction of high-throughput and cutting-edge technology of mass-spectrometry for proteomic studies, the researchers at center are generating the proteomic profile of sub-clinical mastitis and matritis diseases. Early detection of pregnancy utilizing PAGs and miRNA are also being investigated at the center.  Development of recombinant proteins as the intermediate technologies for fulfilling the needs of the animal and dairy industry forms another major area of research at ABTC. Many such useful recombinant proteins such as LIF, GDF-9, Lectoferrin, SSLP and amino-peptidases have been developed in the recent past. Researchers at the centre are also engaged in promoting development of designer animals and humanized dairy milk from animals by utilizing CRISPER and TALEN based genome editing tools. In the era of high usage of antibiotics in dairy industry, stem cell technology has emerged as an alternative to treatment with antibiotics for diseased udder, skin and hoof wounds. Mesenchymal stem cell technology has been developed at the centre and routinely utilized for treatment of animal diseases.

    The state of art laboratories equipped with modern and high end equipments and tools are available at ABTC to carry out all research activities. The laboratories are equipped with equipments like LC-MS/MS, Flow cytometer with sorter, Bioreactors, DNA sequencer, Real-time PCR, Micromanipulator and range of incubators and freezers. A specialized bioinformatic facility is available to cater the need of researchers for studying the niche areas of bioinformatics related to animal biotechnology.

    Research activities in animal biotechnology were initiated at NDRI, Karnal during mid-80s with the establishment of a UNDP ‘Centre of Excellence on Biotechnology’ program in view of the need to utilize biotechnology as a means to transform the agriculture scenario in India. An urgent need for development of biotechnological interventions for improving reproduction and productivity of dairy animals provided the basis for the establishment of Embryo Biotechnology Centre (EBC) at NDRI Karnal by financial support from the Dept. of Biotechnology, Govt. of India. Subsequently, EBC was further strengthened by the establishment of Livestock Genome Laboratory and Molecular Biology Unit under the National Agricultural Research Project-II of ICAR. Animal Biotechnology Centre was reorganized in June 1999 by consolidating all the infrastructure facilities created under various programs on biotechnology at NDRI, Karnal and getting them under one umbrella. A state-of-the-art facility was created in 2007 to consolidate research and teaching activities in biotechnology at the new building of Animal Biotechnology Centre. The new building offers a working space of more than 20,000 sq. ft.

    The objectives of the Centre are:

    1) To undertake biotechnology-oriented basic and applied research programmes for improving animal productivity and for developing innovative dairy processes for producing superior quality, safe and wholesome dairy products,

    2) To train manpower for application of biotechnology for dairy production and dairy processing and

    3) To organize M.Sc./M.V.Sc./M.Tech and Ph.D. programmes in animal biotechnology at NDRI (Deemed University).
