  1. Use of a Plant Universal Molecular Recognition Library for Root Knot Nematode Resistance

    SBC: Divergence, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The goal of this research is to generate crops, such as tomato, corn and carrot, with broad spectrum, season long resistance to root knot nematode. Plant parasitic nematodes, of which root knot is the most significant, annually cause damage in excess of $8 billion in the U.S. and $80 billion worldwide. Transgenic crops have a significant economic opportunity to replace the application of toxic nem ...

  2. Integrating Telepsychiatry with Electronic Medical Record Technology for Improved Rural Mental Health Care

    SBC: ICONOPSYCH CARE, LLC            Topic: N/A

    IconoPsych Care, LLC is working toward commercialization of web-based mental health services which integrate the practice of video telepsychiatry with electronic medical record keeping. This research and development effort is in response to three problems: 1) the shortage of mental health providers available in rural areas , 3) stigma related to seeking mental health services, 3) the need for medi ...

  3. Robust and Sustainable Utilization of Biofuel Co-products to Increase Biorefinery Diversification

    SBC: MARC IV Consulting Inc            Topic: 88

    In this project, researchers will evaluate the potential for utilizing biofuel co-products for high value biobased materials. The two key biobased materials that will be investigated are glycerol carbonate and sucrose esters. The goal of the project is to develop commercially viable, energy efficient routes for these biobased materials using enzymatic catalysis and solvent free conditions. Glycero ...

  4. Development of Anti-Microbial Peptide Therapeutics

    SBC: TENSIVE CONTROLS, INC.            Topic: 83

    A safe food supply is critical to the well being of any society. However, in highly urbanized societies, the number of people affected by a contaminated food source can be huge. Antibiotic resistant disease in the U.S. is an escalating problem [2, 3]. Much of this problem is a result of the use of antibiotics in production animals, where they prevent disease. Chronic use results in the emergence o ...

  5. Control of Root Knot Nematodes by Transgenic RNA Interference

    SBC: Divergence, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Non Technical Summary: The goal of this research is to generate transgenic crops with broad-spectrum, season-long resistance to root knot nematode (RKN, Meloidogyne sp.). Plant parasitic nematodes, of which RKN is the most significant, annually cause damage of $8 billion in the U.S. and $78 billion worldwide. This project proposes to use RNA interference (RNAi) to control RKN by silencing nematode ...

  6. Novel and Effective Agrochemicals Derived From the Analysis of Molecular Fields

    SBC: Divergence, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Non Technical Summary: Current estimates indicate that one-third of worldwide agricultural output is lost to pests and diseases such as pathogenic fungi. Despite advancements in chemical control, the rapid onset of resistance to pesticides often limits their utility. In addition, the vast majority of pesticide research projects are terminated before commercialization because of unattractive attrib ...
