It has now treaded half way mark , where-in scientists have been imparted training on various aspects of diagnosis so that they can comprehend the subject and use various diagnostic tools for rapid and precise diagnosis viz. diagnostic cytology, diagnostic hematology and urinalysis, biomolecular diagnostics , diagnosis of bacterial , viral, mycotoxic and haemoprotozoan diseases, besides other latest diagnostic tools were also discussed. Hands on training on ultrasonography, digital radiography, ultrasound guided biopsies , clinical chemisty , blood grouping in animals , insecticide/pesticide residue analysis, scanning and transmission electron microscopy , rabies diagnosis, diagnosis of mastitis, forensic medicine , cryosectioning, fertility tests and pyometra etc was the paramount feature during the first half of the training. In addition the scientists were also apprised about How to file Patents for their Research data.
