Veterinary Biochemistry

Department of Veterinary Biochemistry


The Department of Veterinary Biochemistry at Bihar Veterinary College, Patna become full flagged department during 80’s after separating from physiology. It remained in the forefront to impart the undergraduate and post graduate teaching and research. The department has continuously provided its services and expertise for the clinical diagnosis to the veterinary clinics.

Since its creation, the department has expanded its facilities to suit the ever-changing needs in teaching and research. The department has all the specified equipment’s as per VCI-MSVE. To achieve its goal, the department has different functional laboratories. The blood biochemical profiling remains an important aspect for livestock health management, and to fulfill this need department has clinical biochemistry laboratory. Molecular biology and enzymology laboratory are performing the advanced studies in the genomic and proteomic area. Department has the culture facility to perform the in-vitro experimentation. Apart from the basic and molecular research, department of veterinary biochemistry expanding the research horizon in the cutting-edge technology like nano technology. To take a leap in the field of nano diagnostics, a biophysics and nanotechnology lab is there.


  • To provide education and training to the undergraduate students in the field of Veterinary Biochemistry.
  • To provide Research-oriented training and education to the postgraduate students in various aspects of Veterinary Biochemistry.
  • To carry out the research in the areas relevant to animal health and production.
