High through put 16S rRNA gene-based pyrosequencing analysis of the fecal microbiota of high FCR and low FCR broiler growers
The metagenomic profile of fecal bacteria in birds with high and low feed conversion ratio (FCR) was investigated to identify microbial community linked to low and high FCR by employing high throughput pyrosequencing of 16S rRNA genomic targets. Expand
Shotgun metagenomic sequencing based microbial diversity assessment of Lasundra hot spring, India
This is the first report on the metagenomic approach for unveiling the microbial diversity of Lasundra hot spring, Gujarat State, India. High-throughput sequencing of community DNA was performed onExpand
Milk microbiome signatures of subclinical mastitis‐affected cattle analysed by shotgun sequencing
Metagenomic analysis of milk samples collected from Kankrej, Gir and crossbred cattle harbouring subclinical mastitis was carried out by next‐generation sequencing 454 GS‐FLX technology to elucidate the microbial community structure of cattle milk. Expand
Deciphering the microbiota of Tuwa hot spring, India using shotgun metagenomic sequencing approach
The hot spring metagenome is very rich with novel sequences affiliated to unclassified and unidentified lineages, suggesting the potential source for novel microbial species and their products. Expand
Metagenomic sequence of saline desert microbiota from wild ass sanctuary, Little Rann of Kutch, Gujarat, India
Community metagenomics revealed total 1802 species belonged to 43 different phyla with dominating Marinobacter and Halobacterium genus in bacterial and archaeal domain respectively. Expand
SNP mining in transcripts and concomitant estimation of genetic variation in Macrobrachium rosenbergii stocks
This approach for mining SNPs and using them for population differentiation in a single step is reported for the first time and shows phylogeny consistent with geographical distribution. Expand
Whole-genome shotgun sequencing of an Indian-origin Lactobacillus helveticus strain, MTCC 5463, with probiotic potential.
The whole genome was sequenced and compared with the published genome sequence of Lactobacillus helveticus DPC4571 to demonstrate potential probiotic properties and their beneficial role in the gastrointestinal tract and their ability to reduce cholesterol and stimulate immunity. Expand
Metagenomic analysis of virulence-associated and antibiotic resistance genes of microbes in rumen of Indian buffalo (Bubalus bubalis).
Meetagenomic data can be used to track potential targets and relative amounts of antibiotic resistance genes in individual animals and generate antibiotic resistance gene profiles to facilitate an understanding of the ecology of the microbial communities in each habitat as well as the epidemiology of antibiotic resistant gene transport between and among habitats.

Genetic diversity among Indian Gir, Deoni and Kankrej cattle breeds based on microsatellite markers
This study presents a probabilistic procedure to identify the alleles responsible for mad cow disease and its consequences in animals and its applications in agriculture and animal Husbandry. Expand
Microbial diversity and community composition of caecal microbiota in commercial and indigenous Indian chickens determined using 16s rDNA amplicon sequencing
Chicken breed-specific variation in bacterial occurrence, correlation between genera and clustering of operational taxonomic units indicate scope for quantitative genetic analysis and the possibility of selective breeding of chickens for defined enteric microbiota. Expand
