Site-specific Recombinases For Use In Hybrid

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1997 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: Dr. hong luo
Award Amount: $55,000.00
Abstract:
The objective of this project is to evaluate the efficacy of the FLP/FRT site-specific recombinase inexcising a transgenic tapetum-specific promoter driving an inverted (antisense) Arabidopsis fertilitygene, bcl1. Plants containing the antisense of bcl1 (flanked by FRT sites) will be male sterile… More

Use of Site-Specific Recombination for Hybrid Rice Production

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2003 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: Hong Luo, Senior Project Leader
Award Amount: $75,000.00
Abstract:
NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Based on previous work we anticipate that this project will provide a proof of principle for hybrid rice production as an attractive alternative to the use of CMS in rice. We expect that this technology will become standard to the rice industry and integrated into worldwide… More

Development of Environmentally Safe Transgenic Turfgrass with Improved Traits

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: Hong Luo, Senior Project Leader
Award Amount: $80,000.00
Abstract:
Trait improvement of turfgrass through genetic engineering is important to the turfgrass industry and the environment. However, the possibility of transgene escape to wild and non-transformed species raises commercial and ecological concerns. The purpose of this project is to determine the… More
