  1. Portable System with Li Foil MWPC Neutron Detectors

    SBC: Radiation Detection Technologies, Inc.            Topic: DTRA14B005

    At the completion of the research and development effort a Li foil multi-wire proportional counter (MWPC) neutron detector with more than 625 cm^2 of active area will be included in a portable radiation detection system. The system is expected to have an intrinsic thermal neutron detection efficiency of 55% or greater and gamma-ray rejection ratio (GRR) of 1.0x10^-8 or better. A gamma-ray spectrom ...

  3. Rational design of small interfering RNA for genome-wide target knockdown

    SBC: Nawgen, LLC            Topic: 172

    DESCRIPTION provided by applicant RNA interference RNAi is a small RNA guided gene silencing process within living cells The RNAi technique is widely used in both biological research and clinical applications because it has the ability to knockdown essentially any gene of interest However one major unresolved issue in RNAi studies is non specific gene silencing It is well known that in ...
