Chromosomal Profile Of Indigenous Pig (Sus Scrofa)
Cytogenetic studies aid in selection of breeding animals which are free from chromosomal abnormalities which in turn augment the production. Cytogenetic studies have been widely carried out in all domestic animal species with little attention given to pigs in India. Hence, the present study was undertaken with the following objectives. 1.To standardize protocol for short term lymphocyte culture of pigs. 2. To study the chromosomal profile of domestic pig. 3. To study different morphometric measurements.
