LaCONES was step-up in 1998 with focus on conservation of endangered species (like the lions, tigers and other rare species on the verge of extinction) through the use of biotechnological interventions. This unique laboratory is a joint venture of the Centre for Cellular and Molecular Biology (CCMB), the Department of Biotechnology, Government of India, New Delhi, and the Central Zoo Authority, Govt. of India, New Delhi.

LaCONES focuses on developing technology for cloning of extremely rare species, monitoring genetic variations, establishing gene and cell banks, studying semen quality for selection of animals for breeding, and takes up in-vitro fertilization for conservation purposes.
