geneOmbio Technologies Pvt Ltd, Pune is India’s first commercial veterinary genetic service provider, to organized dairy farms in the country. Company started its “VetGene” services in 2005 and since then has been offering a wide range of different DNA/PCR genotype tests for dairy animals like cattle, buffalo, sheep, goat, etc
Milk Qualitative Trait Genotyping
CSN2 gene test
Beta-casein is a naturally produced protein in cows’ milk which comes in two variants, A1 and A2. Our laboratory performs genetic test to identify type of protein produced by cow by SNP genotyping.
Microsatellite markers are a powerful tool for animal identification and pedigree verification in cattle. We use ISAG panel to genetically verify parentage in cattle. We have ready to use assay available.
Alpha s1 Casein protein shows polymorphisms which affect the amount of protein and fat produced. This test allows breeders to select animals with respect to their genetic ability of production levels of Alpha S1 Casein in the milk.
Kappa Casein (κ-Casein) is one of the four non-whey proteins and has been associated with increased protein yield and percentage. We have a test that identifies animal with higher production trait for Kappa Casein protein.
Animal Genetic Disorders Genotyping
Deficiency of Uridine Monophosphate Synthase (DUMPS) is an inherited disease of Holstein cattle and Red Holstein cattle that results in early embryonic death of homozygous offspring.
Bovine leukocyte adhesion deficiency (BLAD) disease is a genetically determined immunological disorder. BLAD affected cattle have recurrent mucosal infections, loss of teeth, other conditions and death at an early age.
Factor XI deficiency
Factor XI deficiency is an autosomal recessive disorder characterized by deficiency of blood coagulation factor XI that has been described in Holstein cattle. Our lab performs genetic test to identify Factor XI deficiency.
Animal Infectious Diseases Molecular Diagnostics
Bovine tuberculosis is an infectious disease caused by Mycobacterium bovis that affects dairy animals. Zoonotic implications of the disease and production losses due to its chronic and progressive nature it is a prime concern in dairy industry.
Infectious Bovine Rhinotracheitis (IBR) is a highly contagious, infectious respiratory disease that is caused by Bovine Herpesvirus-1 (BHV-1). geneOmbio offers PCR based detection of IBR cattles through its Vetgene services.
