  1. Autonomous, Unattended, Reagentless Biological Agent Detector

    SBC: Orono Spectral Solutions Inc.            Topic: CBD05111

    The goal of this project is to investigate the feasability of a unique sampling method that will lead to the development of a reagentless infrared (IR) based BW agent detection system. The current JPBDS uses lateral flow immunoassay technology as the final step in detecting bioagents, and has a detection limit of 10^5 spores/ml[ref 1]. Preliminary data from our infrared approach indicates a mini ...

  2. Critical Data Processing for Chemical Warfare Simulant Field Testing- Advanced Data Fusion

    SBC: TORCH TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: CBD05110

    To properly measure (and understand) the performance of a standoff detector, properties of the challenge cloud must be known. Meteorological models, such as HPAC and VLSTRACK, have proven to be reasonably good tools for predicting cloud properties. However, a problem with these tools is that they deliver ensemble averages and may not describe a specific cloud to the detail required. The Dugway ...

  3. Development of a Database Management System to Enable Rapid, Efficient Assay Design for Use in Detection and Diagnosis of Human Exposure to Biological

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: CBD07114

    The primary objective of this effort is to design and develop a database management system (DBMS) and enable the integrated interpretation of the vast amounts of genomic and proteomic data in proper biological context. This DBMS will enable the development of diagnostic assays for human exposure to specific biological threat agents using an existing suite of systems biology tools. The DBMS design ...

  4. Development of a Database Management System to Enable Rapid, Efficient Assay Design for Use in Detection and Diagnosis of Human Exposure to Biological

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: CBD07114

    Increases in amount and diversity of high-throughput data presents tremendous organizational and analysis challenges to researchers. Our objective in this effort is to address these challenges by designing and implementing a database management system (cipherDB) for the storage, management, analysis, and visualization of diverse biological data types. The Phase I design and implementation of ciphe ...

  5. Exploiting Natural Products-Based Therapeutics for Aflatoxin Mitigation

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: CBD152003

    Aflatoxins are a paradigm among fungal produced mycotoxins that are present in food supplies and are strongly associated with increased risk forthe development of hepatocellular carcinoma. Currently, there are no known countermeasures that can selectively mitigate aflatoxin toxicity andthe available options are only symptomatic treatments. To meet this challenge, we propose to harness the microbio ...

  6. High Fidelity Computational Models for Aggregated Tissue Interaction in Surgical Simulations

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DHP16A001

    Surgical simulations aiming to support surgeon practices and medical education have attracted enormous research effort over the last two decades. However, the physical reality, especially on simulating aggregated tissue interaction, is still unsatisfactory. In this proposed work, an open source surgery simulation framework, SoFMIS, will be utilized and enhanced with tissue interaction models to a ...

  9. Portable Iron Screening System for Point-of-Care Iron Status Determination

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DHP16005

    Iron deficiency is one of the most common nutritional deficiencies in the United States. Left untreated, iron stores continue to deplete, resulting in iron deficiency anemia. Women undergoing basic military training are particularly susceptible to reduced iron stores. To date, there are no comprehensive point-of-care instruments for accurate determination of iron status. We propose to develop a no ...

  10. Producing Novel Biosynthetic Therapeutics from Extreme Microbiomes

    SBC: IXPRESSGENES, INC.            Topic: CBD152004

    Environmental DNA from three extreme samples will be isolated, cloned into a fosmid library (5760 clones) for sequencing. The sequencing datawill cover ~ 240 Megabases and will be assembled into contigs long enough (~ 40 Kilobases) to represent potential biosynthetic gene clusters(BGCs). This data will be compared to BGC databases looking for homology to antibiotic targets of DoD interest and with ...
