  3. Plant Bioproduction of ChIFN-gamma Immunostimulatory Cytokine for Poultry Diseases

    SBC: GENECOME BIOTECH LC            Topic: 83

    Poultry is a large component of livestock animals representing a multi-billion dollar industry. Chickens are raised under high density conditions and exposure to infections by opportunistic pathogens spreads rapidly and can have devastating economic impact. Cytokines such as Chicken Interferon-gamma (ChIFN-γ) have shown to have adjuvant and growth promoting activity in poultry and livestock. ...

  4. The use of acousto-ultrasonics to determine the quality of the brazing and grinding of carbide tipped cutting tools

    SBC: S.T.S., INC.            Topic: 81

    Thin saws, although more difficult to manufacture and use, conserve valuable wood fiber resources and make the users of these thin saws more competitive globally. As such, thinner sawblades are growing in popularity in spite of the "challenges" associated with their manufacture and use. Three of those challengers revolve around brazing tips into thinner sawblades1) Because the steel is thinner, le ...

  5. Modified Partitioned Aquaculture System (P.A.S.) to produce high value fish for human consumption.

    SBC: J M MALONE & SON INC            Topic: 87

    Competition from foreign countries has driven down the price paid for catfish forcing many domestic catfish farmers to leave the business of seek alternative species of fish to produce. There is a great interest among such fish farmers in producing high value species such as bass, sunfish and crappie for human consumption. However, these high value species have behaviorial characteristics that mak ...

  6. Out of season production of largemouth bass fingerlings

    SBC: DUNN'S FISH FARMS, INC.            Topic: 87

    Our goal is to develop a new largemouth bass fingerling production system/strategy that will employ "out-of-season" fall spawning of largemouth bass in raceways, followed by winter feed-training and the on-growing of advanced fingerlings indoors. The research outlined in this proposal includes three main objectives: Objective 1. Develop brood-stock acclimation facilities and protocols for out-of-s ...

  7. RoboFindTM- safe & efficient rural travel for the blind

    SBC: FAUXSEE INNOVATIONS LLC            Topic: 86

    The project will prove the feasibility of providing safer and more effective travel for blind individuals who live in rural communities. To that end we will:1. Determine the technologies can be used to provide geo-location information for a blind user navigating in a rural environment. While there are some "talking GPS" devices available, the mapping information provided is not adequate. Existing ...

  8. Biological feedback control of LED grow lights

    SBC: PhytoSynthetix            Topic: 813

    In controlled environment agricultural (CEA) systems (greenhouses and indoor plant production facilities) light is the most energy consuming, and yet the least controlled, input factor for plant growth. Plants can dissipate up to 80% of the absorbed light energy as heat through physiological protective mechanisms (non photochemical quenching) and this light cannot be used for plant growth. Light e ...

  9. Novel, Allergen Specific, Molecularly Imprinted Polymers for Use in Laboratory and Inline Food Process Monitoring Applications

    SBC: SPORIAN MICROSYSTEMS INC            Topic: 85

    The emerging challenges associated with human exposure to food allergens have fueled an urgent need for development of novel detection and sensing systems. Food industries, regulatory agencies, and allergy suffers require the ability to quickly test and continuously monitor in-situ for specific allergens and/or food contaminants in food and food processes.Film that adhere specifically to nut aller ...
