Development of molecular markers for aquaculture species and their products which could benefit fair trade by providing traceability, verifiability, certification, guarantee and purity.
To support various RGCA projects for genetic data management for Selective Breeding and assisting in Genetic Improvement Programmes.
To conduct genetic population studies to ensure the genetic variability required for Founder Population selection for breeding programmes.
To provide partial gene sequencing services to various Institutes, Universities and colleges.
To conduct regular hands-on training programmes on advance molecular markers as a part of Skill Development activities.
CAGL is extremely well equipped with modern equipment (such as automatic DNA extractor, automatic Electrophoresis system, automatic Genetic Analyzer or Sequencer etc.) for contemporary research on molecular & cellular biology and genetics.
The lab is having gene Cloning facility and regularly providing partial sequence gene sequencing services and hands-on training on advance molecular markers.
CAGL has been playing a pivotal role in implementing genetics aspects in selective breeding programmes for different species presently being implemented at various RGCA projects.
CAGL is conducting the population genetics study for different ongoing projects to find out the suitable founder populations utilizing advanced molecular genetics markers such as microsatellites, mitochondrial-DNA sequencing etc.
The Lab is conducting genetic divergence study using various molecular markers (viz., RAPD, PCR-RFLP, Gene sequencing etc.) to resolve taxonomic ambiguity of species and assisting project personnel at hatchery for individual and family identification using PIT and VIE tags.
The lab is regularly conducting hands-on training programmes on application of advance molecular markers for aquaculture and fisheries management for Skilled manpower development and providing training to University graduates and Post-graduate students for their project dissertation work.
