Research experience and contributions:
Dr. Majumdar’s lab works in the field of animal biotechnology, genomics and animal reproduction. His present research focus lies in the field of...
  1. Production of therapeutic proteins for animal and human in milk of farmed animals.

  2. Attempts to generate bulls with X chromosome bearing sperm only to increase production of female offspring (cow).

  3. New Methods of transgenesis for biomedical research and to facilitate production of transgenic cattle, goat and buffalo. To increase quality of herd: disease resistant and more milk yielding animals.

  4. Livestock genomics.

  5. Alternative to knock out technology, utilizing shRNA to generate transgenic animals.
