  2. Advanced DPP technology for rapid animal-side detection of bovine tuberculosis

    SBC: CHEMBIO DIAGNOSTIC SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 83

    Bovine tuberculosis (TB), a zoonotic disease caused by Mycobacterium bovis, continues to plague the cattle industry in the United States (US) and worldwide. Current diagnostic methods are inadequate; therefore, improved tests are urgently needed for disease control/eradication. The goal of the proposed research is to develop a simple, rapid, accurate, and cost-effective blood test for bovine TB in ...

  3. Commercialization of a Synthetic, Live-attenuated FMDV Vaccine

    SBC: Codagenix Inc.            Topic: 83

    Foot and mouth disease is distributed world-wide in over 100 countries, and has proven to be devastating to livestock of cloven-hoofed animals such as cattle, goats, sheep, pigs, and buffaloes. Similar to other members of the Picornaviridae family, there is considerable natural genetic variation in the FMDV population found in nature. There are seven serotypes of the foot and mouth disease virus, ...

  4. ADVANCED GRADING FOR IMPROVEMENT AND RELIABILITY OF ROUND TIMBER DESIGN VALUES

    SBC: Whole Trees, LLC            Topic: 81

    This project is the last piece of the round timber production puzzle for WholeTrees Structures' SBIR-funded research initiatives: improved selection and grading procedures for round pole timber, building on ASTM visual grading rules for poles and piles, but for structural spanning applications. This research project is based on a solid body of prior work (Wood et al. 1965; Goodman et al. 1981; ...

  5. Cultivation of Filamentous Green Algae for High Value Industrial Products

    SBC: ALGAXPERTS LLC            Topic: 87

    SummaryAlgae are heterogeneous groups of mostly photosynthetic organisms that are found in virtually every aquatic environment on earth. They exert influence on flux of carbon dioxide, generate large fraction of oxygen present in the earth's atmosphere and produce enormous quantity of organic carbon. Humans have long recognized the value of algae as a source of food and non-food products, and ...

  6. A Novel Portable Detection Device for Neonicotinoids: Surveillance of their Presence and Link to Bee Colony Collapse Disorder

    SBC: SEACOAST SCIENCE, INC.            Topic: 813

    There is a growing body of evidence that neonicotinoid based insecticides are partly responsible for the so-called bee colony collapse disorder in which entire colonies of Western honey bees die off. However, many experts believe that more scientific research is needed before supporting a ban of these pesticides to take them off the market. Seacoast is developing an innovative analytical device to ...

  7. Bt resistance management: software for research, education, and outreach

    SBC: Applied Biomathematics Inc            Topic: 813

    Bt crops offer tremendous potential benefits to growers, the environment, seed companies, and society. The risk of pest resistance threatens to reduce the benefits of Bt technology, including its profitability. Mathematical models of evolution provide the main tool guiding insect resistance management (IRM). IRM models are used to quantify and communicate the benefits of stewardship practices. The ...

  8. Enzymatic degradation of quorum-sensing signals to decrease bacterial phytopathogenicity

    SBC: Phyllotech, Inc.            Topic: 82

    Quorum sensing (QS) allows bacterial populations to coordinate gene expression in a cell density dependent manner and plays a significant role in the onset of pathogenesis and biofilm development. In many Gram-negative bacteria, QS is mediated by signaling molecules called N-acyl-homoserine lactones (AHLs). We recently identified an AHL acylase from P. syringae which can enzymatically degrade and ...

  9. Development of Scaled Manufacturing for Mycological Soilless Growth Media

    SBC: ECOVATIVE DESIGN LLC            Topic: 82

    Soilless growth mediums widely used throughout the horticultural industry are either synthetic in origin, or require synthetic chemicals and energy-intensive processing. Ecovative's biomaterial aims to displace these non-renewable, energy-intensive, materials using its product consisting of a self-assembling, moldable mass of fungal mycelium. Mycelium act as a biological resin, binding togethe ...

  10. Rural-Health-Mate: A Tele-Monitoring System That Improves Rural Senior's Healthcare Via Monitoring, Communication & Stakeholder Interaction

    SBC: CREATEABILITY CONCEPTS, INC.            Topic: 86

    The significant gap in the healthcare services available to rural seniors is well supported by prior research. Frequently, rural seniors must travel long distances regardless of weather conditions to healthcare facilities. The senior's family members often worry about their loved ones and may not get accurate information regarding their health and behaviors, and falls, missed meds, and nutriti ...
