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
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
Genetic features of Patanwadi, Marwari and Dumba sheep breeds (India) inferred by microsatellite markers
The information generated from the present study will be valuable for setting conservation priority of the less-described breeds such as Dumba and will also add to the knowledge of previously characterised breeds. 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
Differential expression of microRNAs associated with thermal stress in Frieswal (Bos taurus x Bos indicus) crossbred dairy cattle
The results indicated that there was a significant variation in the physiological and biochemical indicators estimated under summer stress and comprehensive understanding of the biological regulation of stress responsive mechanism is critical for developing approaches to reduce the production losses due to environmental heat stress in dairy cattle.

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.

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
Metagenomic analysis of Surti buffalo (Bubalus bubalis) rumen: a preliminary study
Comparisons of metabolic potential and phylogenetic composition from pyrosequence data generated in four samples could help to determine the role of rumen microbes and their enzymes in plant polysaccharide breakdown is fundamental to understanding digestion and maximising productivity in ruminant animals. Expand
Pathotypic and Sequence Characterization of Newcastle Disease Viruses from Vaccinated Chickens Reveals Circulation of Genotype II, IV and XIII and in India.
Comparison between the field and vaccine virus sequences revealed unique genomic and amino acid differences in important antigenic regions of the F and hemagglutinin-neuraminidase genes which can be targeted for site directed mutagenesis to evaluate the impact of these substitutions on virus pathogenicity.

Genome sequence of Pasteurella multocida subsp. gallicida Anand1_poultry.
We report the finished and annotated genome sequence of Pasteurella multocida gallicida strain Anand1_poultry, which was isolated from the liver of a diseased adult female chicken. The strain causesExpand
