    ajor Research Accomplishments



    Patents, Technology, Methodology, Genetic Stock, Variety, etc.:

    • Efficient luteolysis by Intravulvosubmucosal route injection of prostaglandin in superovulated cattle.
    • Strategies to ameliorate vaccination stress in bull semen production.
    • Hairy fore head type yak was classified according to phenotypic character in Arunachal Pradesh and their population is 5 to 10 percent of total population.
    • Foetal haemoglobin, which is a essential type of hemoglobin found in higher proportion in young animals was also encountered persistence of these haemoglobin in the adult animal of higher altitude, may be due to hypoxic condition and adaptation to high altitude.
