Abstract:
Coronavirus diseases originated from Wuhan, China has emerged as a global pandemic and impacted all sort of human activities including scientific research. Coronaviruses are zoonotic in nature, but there is lack of evidence to explain COVID-19’s original route of transmission from animal to human sources. Many animals like big cats, non-human primates, dogs, ferrets, and minks have been tested positive for COVID-19. Veterinary Services have greatly contributed to support the international and national response to COVID-19. It has pushed the global economy and had devastating on the living conditions on a global scale. COVID-19 pandemic has devastated many industries like aviation, tourism, event management, etc., but at the same time importance of research funding had been realized globally. Cytogenetics has also observed new research projects particularly aimed at SARS-CoV-2 diagnosis. Cytogenetics study proved to be a very accurate tool for tissue specific diagnosis of the virus. Detection of viral antigen using IHC or immunofluorescence assay (IFA) techniques and detection of viral nucleic acids using in situ hybridization (ISH) within infected, but inactivated, human or animal model tissues greatly facilitate detection of viral infection. Research in animal cytogenetics is being promoted in this COVID-19 era, maybe because of global realization of importance of research funding due to sudden pandemic situation, its utilization in accurate diagnosis and awareness among scientific community for One health collaborations.
