Bhuvaneswari 
Bhuvaneswari .T. Ms. Dr
Designation : Scientist
Discipline : Veterinary Microbiology
Division : Aquatic Animal Health and Environment Division
Specialization : Molecular Microbiology
Research areas:
  • Disease diagnosis for fin fish and shellfish
  • Molecular pathogenesis of bacterial pathogens
  • Identification of bacterial virulence factors
Brief profile:

I have interest in the area of bacterial pathogenesis hence I concentrated on the Vibrios associated with L. vannamei shrimp and aquaculture environment and identified the pattern of different vibrio sp involved in WSSV and IHHNV infected shrimp. The monitoring of diseases and screening for exotic viruses in L.vannamei hatcheries and culture ponds was done in AP and TN with frequent sampling from uninfected normal and diseased cases. I have worked on defense mechanism of shrimps. I have contributed to the disease monitoring brood stock of crustacean and fin fish hatchery. I worked in cell culture adaptation and propagation of betanoda virus from field samples of fish.
