The goat is one of the promising animal of genetic resources and is commonly known as “poor man’s cow. Black Bengal goat is dwarf breed, highly prolific and are resistance to diseases. Enzymes are biological catalyst that accelerate the rate of biochemical reaction. Bacterial enzymes are most significant to carryout biochemical reaction. It has been reported that different types of bacteria are prevalent in the upper respiratory tract. Despite their economical as well as cyto genetical and molecular characterization, no efforts have been under taken to study the biochemical characterization of buccal microbiota of Black Bengal goat. Therefore, a preliminary attempt has been undertaken to isolate and characterize the buccal micro biota of black Bengal goat in some villages of Arambagh subdivision, West Bengal.
