Centre for Applied Livestock Genomics


The Centre for Applied Livestock Genomic Laboratory (CALG), Kudappanakkunnu was established in 2016 under Kerala Livestock Development Board Thiruvananthapuram.     The laboratory have well established Building structure for different activities like Sample reception, DNA isolation, PCR works, Post PCR works, Karyotyping, Genotyping, DNA storage and Bioinformatics room.





  1. As of now CALG laboratory has the facility to test blood and semen samples for
  2. Genetic Disease Screening (GDS) – NABL accredited (TC-11430)
    a) FXI Deficiency (FXID),
    b) Bovine Leukocyte Adhesion Deficiency (BLAD),
    c) Bovine Citrullinemia (BC),
    d) Deficiency of Uridine Monophosphate Synthase (DUMPS).
  3. Karyotyping
  4. IBR screening in semen ejaculates
  5. A1A2 allele detection
  6. Genotyping -Using Microarray
  7. Serum Brucellosis screening using ELISA


CALG has all the instruments to meet the requirements of industry and regulatory bodies for testing
