  1. An Ultralight Autonomous Robot for Weed Control

    SBC: PARALLEL SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: The effective control of weeds is one of the most important and costly issues in commercial agriculture. Practically all weed control is accomplished by mechanical means (cultivation) or broadcast spraying of herbicides. Global positioning systems, remote sensing and variable-rate technology have been used for site-specific herbicide application. The anticipated results will ...

  2. Large-Scale Production and Field Testing of Pelleted Fungal Inocula for Use in Fungal-Based Remediation of Contaminated Soil

    SBC: EarthFax Development Corp.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Fungal inocula are a critical and economically-significant component of a technology that exploits the abilities of white-rot wood-decay fungi to degrade pollutants in soil. This technology involves mixing of a fungal inoculum with contaminated soil and placing this mixture in an aerated pile. Current standard inoculum production techniques are expensive, involving the field ...

  4. Use of Site-Specific Recombination for Hybrid Rice Production

    SBC: HybriGene, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Based on previous work we anticipate that this project will provide a proof of principle for hybrid rice production as an attractive alternative to the use of CMS in rice. We expect that this technology will become standard to the rice industry and integrated into worldwide breeding programs. We also anticipate that this technology will be used in a wide array of other cerea ...

  7. Improved Outcome Prediction In Galactosemic Newborns

    SBC: ADVANCED BREATH DIAGNOSTICS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Galactosemia is a potentially lethal, but preventable, disease of newborns. In Phase I of this grant, we demonstrated that a 13C-galactose breath test could be used to assess the degree of impairment of whole body galactose oxidation in more than 90 galactosemic children with a broad spectrum of mutations in the human GALT gene that codes for galactose-l-phosph ...

  9. Enhancing Elderly Balance & Gait Using Mechanical Noise

    SBC: AFFERENT CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): EIderly falls constitute one of the most costly health problems in the U.S., both in terms of expense to the healthcare system and in individual suffering. Fully one-third of people over age 65 fall each year, many incurring significant injuries that strongly impact their long-term health prospects and productivity. Although many factors contribute to the prop ...
