  1. Performance Evaluation of Five Strains of Striped Bass

    SBC: Aquafuture, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed project seeks to identify superior strains of striped bass by evaluating the progeny of five wild strains collected from a broad geographic range. The collections are designed to evaluate genetically distinct strains. In order to control for the effect of family differences, five families will be collected from each of the strains and their performance will be evaluated and compared ...

  2. Genetic Improvement of White Bass Broodstocks for Production of Superior Hybrid Striped Bass

    SBC: Aquafuture, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed project seeks to identify superior strains and families of white bass for aquacultureby evaluating the progeny of three wild strains collected from a broad geographic range. Thecollections will be designed to evaluate the performance of genetically distinct strains. In orderto control for the effect of family differences, five families will be collected from each of thestrains and t ...

  4. Effects of Intratesticular Injection of Enzyme on Growth and Carcass Characteristics in Boars

    SBC: BIOPURE CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Open surgical castration is a routine procedure on neonatal boars to prevent the offensive odor known as "boar taint" which is released when meat from affected animals is cooked. Castration produces a predictable incidence of side-effects including stress, hemorrhage, hernia, infection and mortality, which become more prevalent if castration is performed after weaning. Castration also produces a ...

  5. Non-fouling Netting For Aquaculture

    SBC: Cape Cod Research            Topic: N/A

    A water-borne net coating is described that will prevent biofouling of netting materials used inaquacultural applications. The novel composition functions through the use of trace quantities ofnaturally occurring antifouling compounds. In addition, it contains no volatile organiccompounds (VOC). The proposed technology is especially attractive since it involves onlyenvironmentally benign compon ...

  6. Cytokines And Cytokine Assays For Swine

    SBC: Endogen, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Cytokines play a key role in the immunobiology of swine, and have the potential to improve themanagement of these animals. The pattern and tissue distribution of inflammatory cytokine expressionmay be indicative of the health or infectious status of the animal. Thus, the development of rapidcytokine tests is necessary to exploit this useful diagnostic information.Cytokines may also play another ...

  8. INSTRUMENT TO MEASURE N2 FIXING AND NITROGENASE ACTION IN FIELD-GROWN LEGUMES

    SBC: Morgan Scientific, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    EXTENSIVE RESEARCH IS BEING CONDUCTED TO OPTIMIZE NITROGEN (N2) FIXATION RATE IN LEGUMINOUS CROPS, AND TO INTRODUCE N2-FIXING ABILITY INTO NONE-LEGUMINEOUS CROPS. THIS RESEARCH REQUIRES A METHOD TO CONDUCT CONTINUOUS, NININVASIVE MEASUREMENTS OF NITROGENASE ACTIVITY IN INTACT NODULATED ROOTS, PARTICULARLY IN FIELD STUDIES. CURRENTLY AVAILABLE METHODS ARE EITHER INHIBITORY OR ONLY PROVIDE MEASUREME ...

  10. OVER-THE-HORIZON DATA/VIDEO LINKS FOR RURAL AREAS

    SBC: Signatron Technology Corp.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL INVESTIGATES AN EXTENDED LINE-OF-SIGHT RADIO TECHNIQUE FOR LOW-COST DATA AND VIDEO LINKING OF RURAL ORGANIZATIONS AND PUBLIC INSTITUTIONS. EFFECTIVE RURAL WIDEBAND COMMUNICATIONS ARE OFTEN HAMPERED BY THE DIFFICULTY OF OBTAINING RIGHT-OF-WAY FOR CABLES AND/OR BY THE COST OF LEASED LINES OR SATELLITE CHANNELS. DIRECT RADIO LINKS WOULD BE ATTRACTIVE DUE TO THEIR NON-INTRUSIVE NATURE, P ...
