Award List:

The Expression of the Sweet Protein Brazzein in Maize

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1999 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: John A. Howard
Award Amount: $65,000.00
Abstract:
Not Available Brazzein is a sweet plant protein recently discovered at the University of Wisconsin. It is the subject of four issued U.S. patents. The protein is 500 to 2000 times sweeter than sucrose and has the functional characteristics, such as taste and stability, required to be a leading… More

The Expression of the Sweet Protein Brazzein in Maize

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2000 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: John A. Howard
Award Amount: $250,000.00
Abstract:
Brazzein is a sweet plant protein recently discovered at the University of Wisconsin. It is the subject of four issued U.S. patents. The protein is 500 to 2000 times sweeter than sucrose and has the functional characteristics, such as taste and stability, required to be a leading commercial… More

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2000 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: John A. Howard
Award Amount: $0.00
Abstract:
Not Available We propose to develop multi-channel silicon x-ray detector arrays, and their associated integrated circuit pulse-processing electronics, for high energy resolution remote x-ray fluorescence measurements for planetary geochemical analysis. The detectors will detect x-rays from… More

Efficacy of Recombinant Redox Enzymes from Corn in Wood and Textile Applications

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2003 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: Elizabeth E. Hood
Award Amount: $75,000.00
Abstract:
NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Industrial proteins produced in plants, particularly corn, offer a unique opportunity for industrial scale production of enzymes at competitive prices and yields that will address markets that cannot be addressed today. These corn-produced enzymes open the possibility to… More

Cellulases for Biomass Conversion from the Transgenic Maize Production System

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2003 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: Elizabeth E. Hood
Award Amount: $75,000.00
Abstract:
NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: The production of ethanol from lignocellulosic biomass can utilize large volumes of agricultural residues that are untapped today. Ethanol fuels burn cleanly, thus the use of ethanol for partial replacement of petroleum fuels will have a positive impact on the environment. The… More

Development of a Plant-based Vaccine aganist HIV

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2003 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Michael E. Horn
Award Amount: $144,408.00
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Plant-based vaccines have now been proven to impart resistance to various viral and bacterial diseases in animals and in humans. These vaccines can be produced in a transgenic plant product such as corn flour. When ingested, the protein subunit induces a… More

Cellulases for Biomass Conversion From the Transgenic Maize Production System

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: Richard C. Clough
Award Amount: $296,000.00
Abstract:
The production of ethanol from lignocellulosic biomass can utilize large volumes of agricultural residues that are untapped today. Ethanol fuels burn cleanly, thus the use of ethanol for partial replacement of petroleum fuels will have a positive impact on the environment. The production of ethanol… More

Efficacy of Manganese Peroxidase Produced from Maize in Pulp Bleaching

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: John A. Howard
Award Amount: $296,000.00
Abstract:
The pulp and paper industry require the removal or bleaching of lignin as an important manufacturing step for many of their products. Chemical bleaching is the preferred current process for whitening because of its relatively low cost. The bleaching process uses large amounts of chlorinated and… More
