  2. Performance Evaluation of Five Strains of Striped Bass

    SBC: Aquafuture, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed project seeks to identify superior strains of striped bass by evaluating the progeny of five wild strains collected from a broad geographic range. The collections are designed to evaluate genetically distinct strains. In order to control for the effect of family differences, five families will be collected from each of the strains and their performance will be evaluated and compared ...

  3. Effects of Intratesticular Injection of Enzyme on Growth and Carcass Characteristics in Boars

    SBC: BIOPURE CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Open surgical castration is a routine procedure on neonatal boars to prevent the offensive odor known as "boar taint" which is released when meat from affected animals is cooked. Castration produces a predictable incidence of side-effects including stress, hemorrhage, hernia, infection and mortality, which become more prevalent if castration is performed after weaning. Castration also produces a ...

  4. Developing Commercial Dairy Sheep for Southern United States Conditions

    SBC: Chicory Farm            Topic: N/A

    The research and innovation proposed here will use genetic technology and knowledge to produce a domestic dairy sheep strain productive under United States Southern Region and Third World conditions, while also generating new information about ewe management. Dairying with sheep presents innovative economic opportunities to the sheep industry, and the number of dairy sheep operations is expanding ...

  7. INSTRUMENT TO MEASURE N2 FIXING AND NITROGENASE ACTION IN FIELD-GROWN LEGUMES

    SBC: Morgan Scientific, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    EXTENSIVE RESEARCH IS BEING CONDUCTED TO OPTIMIZE NITROGEN (N2) FIXATION RATE IN LEGUMINOUS CROPS, AND TO INTRODUCE N2-FIXING ABILITY INTO NONE-LEGUMINEOUS CROPS. THIS RESEARCH REQUIRES A METHOD TO CONDUCT CONTINUOUS, NININVASIVE MEASUREMENTS OF NITROGENASE ACTIVITY IN INTACT NODULATED ROOTS, PARTICULARLY IN FIELD STUDIES. CURRENTLY AVAILABLE METHODS ARE EITHER INHIBITORY OR ONLY PROVIDE MEASUREME ...

  8. OVER-THE-HORIZON DATA/VIDEO LINKS FOR RURAL AREAS

    SBC: Signatron Technology Corp.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL INVESTIGATES AN EXTENDED LINE-OF-SIGHT RADIO TECHNIQUE FOR LOW-COST DATA AND VIDEO LINKING OF RURAL ORGANIZATIONS AND PUBLIC INSTITUTIONS. EFFECTIVE RURAL WIDEBAND COMMUNICATIONS ARE OFTEN HAMPERED BY THE DIFFICULTY OF OBTAINING RIGHT-OF-WAY FOR CABLES AND/OR BY THE COST OF LEASED LINES OR SATELLITE CHANNELS. DIRECT RADIO LINKS WOULD BE ATTRACTIVE DUE TO THEIR NON-INTRUSIVE NATURE, P ...

  9. Prepuberal Heifers as Oocyte Donors in Cattle Breeding Programs

    SBC: Trans Ova Genetics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The goal of this project is to shorten the generation interval (GI) in cattle by developing efficient methods for collection of developmentally competent oocytes from the ovaries of prepuberal heifers. The methods could then be offered as a service to our clients. Genetics gains are being limited by the length of the GI, inefficiencies in new reproductive technologies, and the low rates of selec ...

  10. Rapid Detection of Aflatoxin B1 with Reusable Immunochemical Optrodes

    SBC: Universal Sensors, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Fiber optic measurement of aflatoxins will be performed suing optrodes specific for aflatoxin. One optrode will consist of aflatoxin linked by adsorption or immobilized by sulfhydryl groups on the tip of a fiber optic bundle. For determination of aflatoxin using immobilized F(ab') antibody, the antibody will first be cleaved and then immobilized to quartz plates or wafers by silinization. Aflat ...
