The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. N/A

    SBC: Black Pearls Inc            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will identify commercially-important genes in Pinctada margaritifera as targets for future manipulation in order to improve the efficiency and profitability of black pearl farming. This work will also attempt to produce transgenic pearl oysters that carry the Green Fluorescent Protein (GFP) transgene under a constitutive eukaryotic pro ...

  2. Does Size, Growth and Sterility of Triploid Black-Lip Pearl Oysters Result in Better Pearls?

    SBC: Black Pearls Inc            Topic: N/A

    Pearl culture is the most lucrative aquaculture industry in the Pacific Islands, and is an ideal development activity for remote, otherwise-impoverished atolls. Commercial farmers in the U.S.-affiliated Pacific Islands must be hatchery-based, offering opportunity for value-added improvements from triploidy for little additional cost. Techniques for inducing triploidy in Pinctada margaritifera will ...

  6. Magnetophoresis as Novel Means for Transgenesis

    SBC: Kuehnle AgroSystems Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Genetically engineered products offer tremendous potential as foods, medicines, and industrial materials. The novel process of magnetophoresis may be able to address shortcomings of existing gene transfer technologies for further crop improvement. We propose in this Phase I project to demonstrate the technical feasibility of magnetophoresis to reproducibly deliver small magnetic particles (microma ...

  8. High Accuracy, Automated Satellite Surveillance Network

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Oceanit has successfully shown in Phase I that highly accurate (sub-arcsecond) observations are obtainable utilizing a relatively low-cost COTS system. These highly accurate angular observations can be introduced into the orbit determination process as asupplement to high-quality range data. These improved angular observations help resolve the geometric ambiguity of range-only orbit determinatio ...
