  1. Cost Effective and Reliable Anaerobic Digestion for Agricultural By-products


    The current problem with on farm anaerobic digesters is the high failure rate. Some failures are do to plugging because of the viscous and heterogeneous nature of agricultural animal waste. Other digesters have been abandoned because the management of the digester was too difficult or required to much time. The purpose of this project is to develop a novel method along with the machinery capable f ...

  2. Dietary L-Thyroxine to Induce Molt Without Feed Withdrawal in Laying Chicken, Broiler Breeder, and Turkey Breeder Hens to Extend Production

    SBC: Hooge Consulting Service            Topic: N/A

    Molting (reproductive rejuvenation) of poultry to extend table or fertile egg production is a well accepted commercial practice in the U.S. However, the conventional method of ~10-day feed withdrawal to induce molt is increasingly viewed as unacceptable by McDonald's, Wendy's, AVMA, and the egg consuming public. The use of dietary L-thyroxine (T4; the natural molting hormone) for poultry can provi ...

  3. Development of Environmentally Safe Transgenic Turfgrass with Improved Traits

    SBC: HybriGene, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Trait improvement of turfgrass through genetic engineering is important to the turfgrass industry and the environment. However, the possibility of transgene escape to wild and non-transformed species raises commercial and ecological concerns. The purpose of this project is to determine the usefulness of genetically engineered male sterility in turfgrass for producing stable, environmentally safe t ...

  4. Project PREPARE: Preparing preschoolers and kindergartners who are deaf to learn to read by teaching them early critical service words typically visually and linguistically inaccessible to them through a computer-based instruction product

    SBC: HOPE, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Children with significant hearing loss continually exhibit low reading levels, due in part to the difficulty they face upon entering school of understanding basal reading vocabulary, especially critical service words. Service words cannot easily be learned through the use of pictures or objects but constitute up to 75% of all words used in basal readers, including prepositions, conjunctions, artic ...

    SBIR Phase II 2005 Department of Education


    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Applied Medical Visualizations has developed a real-time graphical display showing model-based predictions of drug pharmacology (pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics), intended for use by anesthesiologists in the operating room. The administration of intravenous drugs improves when anesthesiologists are able to visualize model-predicted concentrations, effe ...

  6. Trainable Early Warning System for Epileptic Seizures

    SBC: CHATTEN ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Individuals with epilepsy, their families and the professionals that treat them have long felt the need for reliable warning of an impending epileptic seizure. In Phase I, we developed a unique, multi-parameter, individualized, trainable seizure predetection system which extracts spectral, wavelet and time domain features and uses recurrent neural networks to ...

    SBC: Axon Medical Inc            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): When general anesthesia is administered, anesthetics in the form of vapors are delivered to a patient in 1% to 5% concentrations. Once the surgical procedure has been completed and anesthesia is no longer administered, blood carries the inhaled anesthetic from the brain to the lungs where it is exhaled from the body. The higher the brain blood flow and the ...

  8. High Throughput DSC for Drug Screening

    SBC: Energetic Genomics Corporation            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): High-throughput screening approaches are ubiquitious in the pharmaceutical industry as part of the drug discovery process. A variety of sensors are used in these screens, the most common of which are spectroscopic. Such absorbance or fluorescence based high-throughput screens inevitably require the use of extrinsic probes to provide a signal, and often require ...

  9. A Genome-Derived, Epitope-Driven H. Pylori Vaccine

    SBC: EPIVAX, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): EpiVax discovers and develops epitqpe-driven vaccines by screening microbial genomes for protective epitopes. In this application, we describe a genome-based approach for the development of a therapeutic vaccine against Helicobacter pylori disease. First, the H. pylori genome will be scanned for immunodominant Th epitopes by computer-driven (EpiMatrix) analysi ...

  10. Novel Smallpox Vaccine Derived from VV/VAR Immunome

    SBC: EPIVAX, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): EpiVax specializes in the development of epitope-driven vaccines by screening whole genomes for candidate vaccine components. In this application, we propose to develop a safe, new smallpox vaccine based on epitopes conserved between the vaccinia virus (VV) and Variola (VAR) 'immunomes' that could be used as both a prophylactic and a therapeutic intervention in ...
