  1. STTR Phase I: Emulating Biological Actuation

    SBC: iWalk, Inc.            Topic: EW

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this project includes development of robust control algorithms for a robotic, foot-ankle prosthesis based on the winding filament hypothesis, a transformative new idea about how muscles contract. The winding filament hypothesis is uniquely able to account for properties of muscles that allow instantaneous and automatic adaptation of stiffness to unexpecte ...

  8. STTR Phase I: New dwarfing genes to improve yield and abiotic stress tolerance in wheat

    SBC: Gene shifters, LLC            Topic: BT

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) project is the improvement of wheat yields by introducing newly identified dwarfing genes. The currently used dwarfing genes, which were instrumental in bringing about the "green revolution", are at least partly responsible for this bottleneck. These dwarfing genes, present in more than 90% of the wheat varie ...
