Hisar: In a unique achievement, Dr. Inderjeet Singh, Director, ICAR-Central Institute for Research on Buffaloes (CIRB) informed that institute scientists produced cloned calf ‘HISAR  GOURAV’ on December 11, 2015 at 11:30 AM, birth weight of 40.4 kg born through normal delivery. This cloned buffalo calf is distinct from the earlier clones produced in India, as this  is produced from cells of ventral side of tail of superior buffalo bull, this part is least exposed to sunlight and may have less mutation rate, and can  be good choice for isolation of donor cells to produce healthy clones. The newborn cloned calf is maintaining good health and showing normal activities. Dr Singh emphasized that the use of adult somatic cells of proven males or quality females for cloning can bring revolution by multiplying the superior buffalo germplasm in country. With this achievement CIRB becomes world’s third and India’s second institute to produce cloned buffalo.
