Rank 7 - National Dairy Research Institute

Rank 7 - National Dairy Research Institute Rank 7 - National Dairy Research Institute

The National Dairy Research Institute (NDRI),   has metamorphosed from erstwhile Imperial Institute for Animal Husbandry and Dairying, which was established at Bangalore, India in 1923. In 1989, status of deemed university was conferred to the institute that today provides high quality education in the field of dairying, which has no parallel in Asia. Activities on animal biotechnology research at NDRI were initiated during mid-80s under a UNDP’s center of excellence program on biotechnology.  A masters education program in animal biotechnology was initiated at NDRI in the year 1987. During the same year, on the recommendations of the national task force of the Department of Biotechnology (DBT), Government of India, a national project on embryo transfer technology was initiated at NDRI. This led to the establishment of a state-of-the-art embryo biotechnology center where intensive research in the field aiming at multiplication of superior germplasm made it possible to produce more than 10 calves from a single cow in one calendar year.
