  1. Production of high protein distillersâ dried grains with solubles (HP-DDGS) to replace fish meal in aquaculture diets.

    SBC: DAST            Topic: 87

    In 2007, wild captured fish accounted for about 15.7% of the animal protein consumed by humans on a global basis, and per capita consumption of fish and shellfish products is increasing, parallel with the global human population. Unfortunately, harvest rates of wild fish have decreased by ~0.7 mmt per year over the past 20 years, and the FAO recently reported that 53% of the world's wild fish ...

  2. Engineering Photosynthetic Cyanobacteria to Produce the Energy-Dense Fuel Farnesene from Carbon Dioxide

    SBC: DAST            Topic: 88

    The goal of the project is to genetically engineer photosynthetic cyanobacteria that will synthesize farnesene from carbon dioxide. The work will then involve shutting down pathways that compete for carbon in an attempt to maximize the amount of farnesene that can be produced. Then we will do tolerance testing by culturing the cyanobacteria in varying concentrations of the end product(s) in order ...

  7. Method Development for a Next Generation Miniaturized Genomic Screening Platform

    SBC: ENGINEERING ARTS, LLC            Topic: NHGRI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Every gene has its own set of small RNA molecules, known as small interfering RNA (siRNA), that inhibit expression of the gene's proteins. The siRNA molecules are part of an ancient natural mechanism of gene regulation,known as RNA interference (RNAi) that has been evolutionarily conserved since the earliest eukaryotic cells. More recently researchers have ...
