Biography

Dr. Gous Miah received B.Sc. A.H. (Bachelor of Science in Animal Husbandry) and M.S. (Masters in Animal Breeding and Genetics) Degree from Faculty of Animal Husbandry, Bangladesh Agricultural University, Mymensingh, and the PhD degree on Molecular Biotechnology from Institute of Tropical Agriculture, Universiti Putra Malaysia, Malaysia.

He joined as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Genetics and Animal Breeding, CVASU from 2003 until 2011 and served as an Associate Professor from 2011 until 2015. Currently, he holds a position of Professor in the Department of Genetics and Animal Breeding, Chittagong Veterinary and Animal Sciences University (CVASU). His research interests are in the areas of Marker-assisted selection (MAS), Quantitative-trait loci (QTL) analysis in various fields, and Animal Breeding and Biotechnology.

 He had completed ten (10) research works and had taken more than twenty one (21) professional training in his field and related fields.
