RESEARCH

The research mandate of Kamdhenu University is to excel in research output by adopting cutting edge technologies which benefits Animal Owners in the field and man in the street. To accomplish the vision of Kamdhenu University initial long strides in research have been made. College of Dairy Science, Amreli, has bagged one research project from DBT worth Rs. 46.45 lakhs. The project is on "Development of Nano-tag and Thread based micro fluidic system biosensor for detection of Aflatoxin M1 in milk". Further, College of Dairy Science has two ongoing projects on 1. Development of Probiotics fortified Soya food for health and nutritional benefits of elderly population and 2. Bio-conjugation of iron oxide/gold nano-particles for the detection of Aflatoxin M1 in milk.

Faculty of Veterinary Sciences and Fisheries climbed initial steps of research ladder. Four new technical programmes were approved in the XIth combined Joint AGRESCO, held at Anand, on April 07-09, 2015. Efforts are being made to get new projects from different agencies.

An encouraging accomplishment for Dairy Faculty at Amreli was the best poster presentation award on "Isolation and screening of probiotic bacteria for their fortification in soya food" at the International Conference on Sustainable Innovations in Dairying, held at Rajgir, Bihar, from April 02-05, 2015.
