  2. Selection and Genomic Characterization of Honey Bees Resistant to Viral Pathogens

    SBC: Bee Power, LP            Topic: 82

    Honey bee populations, especially managed honey bees, have been adversely affected by Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD), Varroa destructor mite infestations and viral pathogens. A variety of viral pathogens have been identified as potential factors contributing to CCD, and viral pathogens are vectored by Varroa mites. Honey bee viruses, including deformed wing virus (DWV), cause individual honey bee ...

  7. Improved Heterogeneous Catalyst for the Transesterification of Fats and Oils to Biodiesel

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: 88

    World oil reserves are concentrated in just a few countries, primarily in the Middle East which holds nearly two-thirds of the world's oil reserves. With a rising demand in industrialized nations and an even faster increasing demand from developing countries (e.g. India, China, etc.), the pressure on these oil reserves increases and could serve as a basis for future conflicts between nations aimin ...

  10. Development of an anti-bias caster system

    SBC: ACCESSIBLE DESIGNS, INC.            Topic: NICHD

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The importance of reducing the incidence of secondary injuries related to manual wheelchair propulsion is undisputed. Based on several research studies, approximately 50% of manual wheelchair users (MWU) report symptoms of repetitive strain injury (RSI) related to the demand on the upper extremity during propulsion and transferring tasks. A substantial effort ...
