  1. Use of the halophyte Sarcocornia utahensis as a phytoremediation strategy for the amelioration of saline-sodic impacted soils...

    SBC: BLUE MOON BULBS LLP            Topic: N/A

    The environmental impacts of coal bed methane development (CBM) in Montana and the Rocky Mountain States are well documented. CBM exploration is expanding rapidly with the nation's focus on energy independence and the relative ease of extraction. Extraction of CBM necessitates pumping large volumes of often saline discharge waters to the surface. The impacts of those waters include: reductions in ...

  2. SONOGRAPHIC ANALYSIS FOR RAPID DETECTION OF VARROA MITES AND OTHER PATHOLOGIES WITHOUT OPENING THE BEEHIVE

    SBC: BEE ALERT TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Beekeeping is a billion dollar industry, of which honey production plays only a small part. Most beekeepers make their money with crop pollination, charging up to $120 per hive for this service. Crop growers want healthy, strong colonies. It takes a skilled beekeeper about 10 minutes to inspect a colony; the Colony Health Scanner performs the same function in about 2 minutes, and can be operated b ...

  3. Improved Feed Products From Pima Cottonseed: By-products of Biofuels Feedstock Production

    SBC: ECO-SOL LLC            Topic: N/A

    New options for both biofuel feedstocks and dairy feeds are needed. Recent instability and high petroleum prices have made this apparent in energy markets. This has also affected livestock feed markets as the price of food for the consumer as the shock waves created by the corn ethanol boom move through the economy. This project addresses both issues by adding value to an underutilized byproduct o ...

  4. Cost-Effective Wind Turbine for Electricity Self Sufficiency on Small and Mid-Size Farms

    SBC: WIND INNOVATIONS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    There is potential for a major expansion of windpower production on small and mid-size farms in the United States. Most of the nation?s wind resources are located on farm and ranch land. However, US sales of small (less than 100kW) wind turbines are still relatively limited, amounting to fewer than 7,000 units in 2006. The major reason is the unacceptably high system cost and long payback period o ...

  5. An Empirical Approach to Developing Web-based Math Learning Games to Improve Elementary School Student Outcomes

    SBC: Virtual Learning Technologies (Sokikom)            Topic: N/A

    Recent reports assert that the education system of the United States is failing to produce enough mathematically skilled workers necessary for the country to remain globally competitive. A key problem in the current system, as reported by the National Mathematics Advisory Panel, is that students are not learning the foundational math skills they need during the elementary school years. This projec ...

  7. Efficacy of Instrument-Assisted Manipulation Determined by an Animal Model

    SBC: ACTIVATOR METHODS INTERNATIONAL, LTD            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Neural responses to pain and injury as well as to various means of analgesia have profound implications as their regulation ultimately can be shown to affect the course of inflammation and thus become a matter of considerable interest. The ultimate goal is to identify and reveal the mechanisms by which the most conservative means of producing long-lasting analg ...

  8. A Low Cost Microarray for Population-Scale AIDS Risk Analysis: The AIDS Chip

    SBC: GENOMICS USA, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): There is rapidly growing HIV literature, which has discovered a set of inherited genetic differences which can predict: a) the fraction of an infected population who will progress slowly, or never progress to AIDS symptoms (the so-called Elite Controllers), or b) the fraction of an infected population who will develop a dose limiting, Stevens-Johnson like infla ...

  9. HLA Chip Product for FDA 510K Approval

    SBC: GENOMICS USA, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): We describe here a Phase II Competitive Renewal grant application, which will support a three year program of ASHI (American Society of Histocompatibility and Immunology) and FDA 510K review, for the HLA-Chip which we have developed over the past two years, with Phase II SBIR support. The deliverable at the end of year three of this Competitive Continuatio ...

  10. In Vitro Gene Expression Model Predicting Drug Induced Liver Disease

    SBC: HIGH THROUGHPUT GENOMICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Phospholipidosis (PLDosis) or lipid metabolism disorders are a factor in many drug induced liver diseases. Drug induced, dose-dependent, alterations in the expression of sets of genes, whether direct cause or effect, can provide a molecular signature of the functional phenotypic effect(s) (e.g. adverse metabolism). Definitive identification of PLDosis is based ...
