Award List:

SBIR Phase I: Improved Systems for Producing Therapeutic Proteins in Plants

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Raymond M. Raab, Dr
Award Amount: $86,000.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project aims to examine the feasibility of producing therapeutic proteins in transgenic plants with a biological safety switch that controls the pharmacological activity of the proteins. With the embedded switch, the therapeutics will be inactive… More

SBIR Phase I: Development of Novel, Inducible Processing Traits in Corn for Ethanol Production

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Humberto DeLaVega, Dr
Award Amount: $94,552.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I research project will produce corn with processing traits optimized for ethanol production. The corn will be modified by embedding inactive amylase enzymes into the crop that can be activated during processing steps. The polysaccharide degrading… More

SBIR Phase I: Engineering process traits in biomass for lignin degradation to improve ethanol production

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Humberto S. De La Vega, DPhil
Award Amount: $99,500.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I research investigates the feasibility of engineering biomass with processing traits for ethanol production. Biomass will be transformed to produce lignin-degrading enzymes, modified with a biological switch to remain inactive during crop growth.… More
