  • Resource Person of National Brood stock Management and Breeding Plan of Fishes in Bangladesh.
  • Resource Person of Infrastructure Development Company Limited (IDCOL), Bangladesh.

Consultancy experience:

  • Working experience as Fish Genetics Specialist” for 6 months from 1 March to 31 August 2008 under Strengthening Institutional Capacity of DoF project funded by DANIDA, Department of Fisheries (DoF), Bangladesh.
  • Working experience as Consultant on “Identification of genetically pure Tilapia strains and establishment of Monosex Technology for commercial and sustainable development funded by ATDP Agricultural Ministry-USA project from 23 March to 22 May, 2003.

Research activities:

  • Current research:
    I worked on allozyme analysis of Indian Major Carps (IMCs) and Thai pangas (exotic) in Bangladesh since 2001. Also I developed the breeding technique on endangered local sarpunti (Puntius sarana), Labeo ariza and Anabas testudinesu for their revival and mass production.
    Many allozyme works for the detection of hybrids among Indian Major Carps (IMCs) is developed in my laboratory. PCR-RAPD analysis using nuclear DNA of catla (Catla catla) is  also conducted in our developed DNA laboratory. Riverine and hatchery stocks are analyzed to know the genetic variation of stocks for aquaculture program. Four population were studied namely Halda, Jamuna, Padma and one Hatchery population where percentage of polymorphic loci and Nei’s gene diversity (Nei, 1973) were 41.94% and 0.164 for Halda; 41.94% and 0.147 for Jamuna; 45.16% and 0.176 for Padma; and 35.48% and 0.154 for Hatchery populations respectively, revealing relatively higher level of genetic variation in the Padma population.
    A collaborative research project is established between the Hiroshima University, Japan and the Bangladesh Agricultural University, Mymensingh since 11th November 2001. The title of the research project is “The Speciation Mechanism of Amphibian” based on genetic variation using genetic markers. The research collaboration will be conducted between Dr. Masayuki Sumida, Associate Professor, Laboratory for Amphibian Biology, Hiroshima University, Japan and Dr. Md. Mukhlesur Rahman Khan, Assistant Professor, Dept. of Fisheries Biology and Genetics, Bangladesh Agricultural University, Bangladesh.
    Genetic variation of local pangas (Pangasius pangasius) was analyzed with ten enzymes where seventeen presumptive gene loci were observed. The mean proportion of polymorphic loci was 17.65%, 29.41% and 11.76% of P. pangasius in Burishwar, Andarmanick and Meghna population respectively. The highest mean number of allele per locus and mean proportion of heterozygous loci per individual were observed in the Andarmanick population (1.294 and 16.667% respectively). In Nei’s (1972) UPGMA dendrogram, Andarmanick and Meghna population of P. pangasius made one cluster (D=0.001) and separated from Burishwar population by the genetic distance of 0.014. The results suggested that the considerable genetic variation is maintained among the natural P. pangasius populations which could help for revival from their endangered situation.
    Recently I have performed an experiment to explore the genetic variation of cross koi with their parents. Ten enzymes systems screened provided eleven scorable loci. Seven out of 11 gene loci were monomorphic in all populations, 4 were polymorphic in cross and Thai populations and 2 disclosed polymorphism in local population. The genetic distance was highest between local and Thai populations (D = 0.134) and lowest between cross and Thai populations (D = 0.022). According to UPGMA tree 3 populations formed 2 clusters which indicated that the genetic relationship among climbing perch populations are same or close to other freshwater fishes and would depend on geographic features.
  • During PhD study:
    I worked on allozyme and mtDNA analysis of Japanese loach for my Ph.D., which involved genetic variation and differentiation among populations and studying their intra- and inter-population, variations. At first I produced allozyme gene markers by changing the requirements and characteristics of each enzyme. During my M. Phil. study in Hiroshima University, I used muscle and liver samples to construct the UPGMA dendrogram to show their genetic distance. After this my Ph.D. work continued for three years and I extracted mtDNA 2kbp template using universal primer. Seven restriction enzymes were used to get the loach cleavage types and eleven haplotypes were identified for the Japanese loach. Finally, all types were used for gene mapping and haplotypes were used for the genetic construction by which population show their origin and phylogenetic status. So, the experiences that I have achieved, would be very much useful to study the stock assessment of Bangladeshi fish as well as the causative factor for endangered situation of our native fresh water fishes.
  • Past research in Bangladesh (2001-2008):
    After coming back to Bangladesh, I have concentrated in population genetic work using allozyme and DNA markers such as mtDNA and RAPD to disclose the base line of genetic variation and differentiation for Bangladeshi fishes.  My colleagues and I already disclosed genetic variation of Thai pangas (Barua et al., Pakistan J. Biol. Sci., 2004), rohu (Alam et al., Pakistan J. Biol. Sci., 2002), hilsa shad (Ahmed et al., Indian J. Fisheries, 2004) and others.  These works are considered important because Bangladesh inland fisheries is now facing to the problems of genetic contamination of indigenous fish stock by intrusion of exotic species taken into Bangladesh for aquaculture activities. Simultaneously, I started to study on Amphibian specially frog species in Bangladesh because it was also an important item for the earnings of foreign money. At present, I have thoroughly surveyed the existing frog species distributed in Bangladesh topography by morphologically and molecularly (Khan et al., Bangladesh J. Fisheries, 2002).
    Fields: Fish breeding, population genetics and molecular biology.
  • During MS study:
    I did the genetic study of hybrids of Clarias spp (Catfish) in Bangladesh (from March 1993 to April 1995). The hybrids between local catfish (Clarias batrachus Female) and African catfish (C. gariepinus Male) showed heterosis in both length and weight.  Hybrids between domestic species and exotic imported species frequently become problems in genetic conservation, because some escapers might cause genetic contamination of indigenous populations.   From such a viewpoint, I studied survival, growth and reproductive performances of hybrid catfishes.  Some of these hybrid works were published in Aquaculture Research (Khan et al., 2000), Online J. Biol. Sci. (Khan et al., 2002) and others.
  • Also I have completed M phil course on loach (Misgurnus anguillicaudatus) genetic study using allozyme markers in the Hiroshima University, Japan from October, 1995 to March 1998.
