  1. Determination of best candidates for novel orally delivered therapeutic candidates to combat spread of coccidiosis in poultry

    SBC: US BIOLOGIC            Topic: 83

    Avian coccidiosis is the major parasitic disease of poultry that can result in the deaths of millions of birds in a short time. Prophylactic medication and live parasite vaccines are employed as therapeutics. The development of parasite strains resistant to drug treatments, and immune-evasive mutations introduced in response to live parasite treatments will soon limit the effectiveness. The USDA A ...

  2. Development of statistical models required to implement a longleaf pine decision support system

    SBC: Silvics Analytic            Topic: 81

    Expansion and restoration of the longleaf pine timber type is highly dependent on outreach to non-industrial private forests and landowners. Over 60% of longleaf or longleaf-oak timber types are in non-industrial private ownership. Private consultants and state foresters provide much of the technical advice and services to private landowners within the longleaf pine range. Longleaf pine ecosystems ...

  3. SCICAST Stimulating Community Involvement by Cultivating Screencast Technologies

    SBC: Inquiry Technologies, LLC            Topic: 86

    Achievement levels of U.S. K-12 students continue to decline compared with those of students in many foreign countries - especially in math and science. Based on current U.S. standards alone, two-thirds of our 8th grade students lack proficiency in core disciplines related to science, math, and reading. This same data for many of our resource-limited rural school districts is even more troubling. ...

  4. Leaf-specific post-emergent herbicide application

    SBC: CONCURRENT SOLUTIONS, LLC            Topic: 813

    Glyphosate had been used for decades as a pre-emergence herbicide in commercial agriculture. The introduction of herbicide-resistant GMO soybeans and other herbicide-resistant crops made glyphosate the most popular herbicide for grain farmers in the U.S. As the use of glyphosate in post-emergence applications increased, several important weeds, among them Palmer amaranth or pigweed (Amaranthus pal ...

  5. A Novel Method for Utilization of Raw Crabmeat

    SBC: SHURE FOODS, INC            Topic: 85

    The blue crab industry in the U.S. struggles to compete with cheap, imported crabmeat due to low offshore labor costs. Furthermore, a primary challenge for the industry is to maintain the flavor of picked crabmeat, since a substantial amount of crab flavor is lost as the liquid is cooked out during the traditional precooking of crab prior to hand picking. The mechanical deshelling method used to p ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. An improved bioassay for the surveillance of dioxins in the U.S. food supply

    SBC: 490 BIOTECH INC            Topic: 85

    Dioxin and other dioxin-like chemicals are persistent environmental pollutants that threaten human and animal health due to their stability in the environment and their ability to accumulate in the food chain toward eventual human consumption. Incidents of dioxins being found in the food and animal feed chain have led to numerous recalls with consequent impacts on human and animal health as well a ...

  8. A Low-Cost Pathogen Detection System for Food Safety

    SBC: Access Sensor Technologies LLC            Topic: 85

    Food safety is a global problem, which costs the world billions of dollars and over a million lives annually. Access Sensor Technologies proposes to develop a rapid, low-cost, easy to use system for the measurement of food borne pathogens. The proposed kit builds off of patent-pending technology that will deliver exceptional ease-of-use as well as performance metrics (time, cost, labor) exceeding ...

  9. A Regenerable Sorbent for Deep Desulfurization of Alpha Pinene

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: 81

    Crude Sulfated Turpentine (CST) is a by-product of the Kraft wood pulping process, and its derivatives (e.g., terpenes such as alpha pinene) are used as fragrances in commercial products ranging from cosmetics to detergents. They can also be, and are, catalytically transformed into valuable chemicals by hydrogenation, oxidation and isomerization reactions. However, turpentine and its derivatives c ...

  10. ThinkZone: A Research-Driven Gaming Portal for Transforming K-8 Teaching and Learning Practices

    SBC: ThinkZone LLC            Topic: EDIES15R0005

    The project team is developing and testing a prototype of Thinkzone, a blended learning portal intended for Kindergarten through Grade 8 teachers to host existing education learning games across core subject areas. The prototype will host games, and include a learning system to train educators to integrate games to replace or supplement instructional practice. In the Phase I pilot study will inclu ...
