  1. Optimization of commercial production of insects as feed ingredient and for waste remediation

    SBC: Beta Hatch Inc.            Topic: SB172002

    With 10 billion people expected on the planet by 2050, serious innovations are needed to meet the expected 50% increase in demand for protein. Beta Hatch is industrializing the production of insects for agriculture, pioneering our first crop, the yellow mealworm as an animal feed ingredient.. In Phase 1 we developed novel feed formulations to bring down the costs of insect production, enhance the ...

  2. Transgenic Black Soldier Flies for Sustainable, Improved Nutrition

    SBC: ECHELON BIOSCIENCES, INC.            Topic: SB163002

    We propose to continue our project generating transgenic insect with improved nutrition for humans and livestock, building on the milestones we have reached and will continue to develop in phase I. We have already demonstrated insertion of exogenous reporter DNA into the insect, and continue to develop genetic engineering tools and techniques. We have expressed the biosynthetic pathway of interest ...

  3. AlphaBear2

    SBC: Spry Fox LLC            Topic: EDIES17R0006

    This project team will fully develop and test AlphaBear 2, a vocabulary learning game for grade 4 to 7 students. Vocabulary is a prerequisite for academic success, as it is linked to stronger performance across academic subjects and improved reading comprehension. It is more difficult for students to participate in educational activities without understanding the key vocabulary associated with tha ...
