  2. Development of “Permit Wizard” Software for AssistedPermit Application Completion

    SBC: Total Quality Systems, Inc.            Topic: 833

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: The objective of this project is to research the technical feasibility of designing a software tool “Permit Wizard” that will automate the process for aquamarine permit application submittal, review, approval/disapproval and issue (including collection of fees). Aquaculture producers are currently faced with slow, complex, and often confusing permitting processes that must ...

  3. Computational Biology Platform Technology for Cellular Reprogramming

    SBC: iReprogram, LLC            Topic: ST17C001

    Methods for interconversion between cell types (cellular reprogramming) are currently discovered through resource intensive trial and error. Experiments may test a multitude of transcription factors to identify correct combinations that influence cell fate. In addition, reprogramming approaches commonly use stem cell intermediates such as induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), which are generated ...

  4. Optimizing Human-Automation Team Workload through a Non-Invasive Detection System

    SBC: SONALYSTS, INC.            Topic: ST16C003

    In this project, Sonalysts will team with the University of North Dakota to establish the feasibility of a deployable, unobtrusive suite of sensors and data processing approaches collectively known as Cognitively-Oriented Physiological Indicators of Load, Operational performance, and Tension (CO-PILOT). CO-PILOT will provide real-time indicators of operator state that can be used to inform adaptiv ...

  9. Many-Core Acceleration of Common Graph Programming Frameworks

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: SB152004

    Graph analytics is a key component in identifying emerging trends and threats in many real-world applications. Large-scale graph analytics frameworks provide a convenient and highly scalable platform for developing algorithms to analyze large datasets. Although conceptually scalable, these techniques exhibit poor performance on modern computational hardware. Another model of graph computation has ...

  10. Next-generation cell-free prototyping and biomanufacturing platform

    SBC: BIODISCOVERY LLC            Topic: SB152001

    Cell-free expression systems are becoming robust platforms to reduce system complexity, to use toxic and non-naturally occurring compounds or to produce metabolic intermediates, proteins and molecules that are otherwise toxic to cells. Unfortunately, current cell-free expression platforms are often inconsistent, low scale, not flexible, poorly characterized and limited to relatively simple biologi ...
