Award List:

Poplar Root System Characterization Studies for Next Generation Root Research

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: Daniel W. McDonald, President
Award Amount: $80,000.00
Abstract:
Root systems are critical to many important tree traits. Characterizing tree roots is difficult because they are hidden underground. This project will use digital x-rays to visualize and characterize tree root systems in order to develop enhanced root systems (and the resulting improved tree traits)… More

Poplar Root System Characterization Studies for Next Generation Root Research

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: Daniel W. McDonald, President
Award Amount: $346,000.00
Abstract:
We propose a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement between Phenotype Screening Corporation, (PSC), and the USDAs Forest Services Northern Research Station to investigate the suitability of PSCs recent innovation, Plant Root Characterization System, for use in tree research. The Plant Root… More

STTR Phase I: Representation and Visualization of Plant Genotypic, Phenotypic,and Environmental Relationships

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / STTR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Research Institution: Duke University
Principal Investigator: Ronald B. Michaels, Dr
Award Amount: $150,000.00
RI Contact: John L. Harer
Abstract:
This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I proposal addresses the visualization and study of the architectural properties of plant roots which, by their nature, are difficult to view and study in vivo. The research objective of this proposal is to develop a method for the analysis and… More

Next Generation Root-Pest Resistance Research and Screening Tool

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: Robert J. Kodrzycki, Chief Scientist
Award Amount: $80,000.00
Abstract:
This project involves development of a non-destructive, non-invasive technique for visualization and characterization of root damage by devastating root pests using digital x-ray imaging. To allow use of x-rays, plants are grown in a low density artificial rooting medium that supports healthy plant… More
