  1. Holographic Optical Cell Manipulation for Automated Development of Improved Yeast Strains for Ethanol Production

    SBC: Arryx, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Potentially insufficient corn stock supplies make necessary the development of industrial yeast strains for converting alternative cellulosic materials for renewable fuel sources. This project investigates the feasibility and develops the capability of using Holographic Optical Trapping as an automated manipulation tool for yeast cells, to characterize and evaluate yeast strains.

  3. Establish Effective Feeding and Harvest Protocol for Rainbow Smelt

    SBC: HARMON BROOK FARM            Topic: N/A

    Present supplies of rainbow smelt, both for live bait and human consumption, are provided, almost exclusively, by commercial harvest of wild populations. This project will develop alternative sources of rainbow smelt for the market and eventually reduce the harvest of wild populations. This project will shift the focus from commercial fishing of wild public resources to commercial fish culture tec ...

  6. Nitrate Biosensor for Agricultural Applications

    SBC: Nitrate Elimination Co Inc, The            Topic: N/A

    A nitrate biosensor based on the enzyme nitrate reductase will be formulated for agricultural applications. The nitrate biosensor will be used to analyze nitrate standards for calibration and nitrate content of real world samples extracted from plants and soils. The resulting data will demonstrate the feasibility of constructing a prototype nitrate biosensor for application in agriculture in Phase ...
