1.Scientists at Central Institute for Research on Buffaloes (CIRB) here claimed to have successfully produced a cloned buffalo offspring ‘Cirb Gaurav’

2.CIRB Director Dr Inderjeet Singh said on Sunday that the scientists achieved the success on December 11 last year.

3.“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 bull buffalo, 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,” he said.

4.Dr. Singh said the newborn cloned calf, weighed 40.4 kg at the time of birth through normal delivery, was maintaining good health and showing normal activities.
