Transposable Element-Based, Site-Specific Recombination System for Plants

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2002 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: David A. Wright
Award Amount: $79,750.00
Abstract:
Site-specific recombination (SSR) is a powerful tool for studying gene function, and it offers great promise for harnessing the biosynthetic capacity of plants to produce compounds of commercial value. Two limitations to the use of SSR in plants are 1) the low frequency by which it occurs and 2) the… More

SBIR Phase I: A Gene Targeting System for Plants

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2003 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: David Wright
Award Amount: $99,531.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project seeks to develop a homologous recombination or gene targeting system for plants. Gene targeting offers great promise for harnessing the biosynthetic capacity of plants to produce compounds of commercial value. A major limitation in… More

SBIR Phase II: A Gene Targeting System for Plants

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: David Wright, PI
Award Amount: $499,999.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research Phase II project will develop a non-transgenic approach for genetic improvement of crops by using a zinc-finger nuclease strategy for homologous recombination in plants and a strategy for selection of non-selectable phenotypes. The commercial application of… More
