  1. Interactive CD Guide for Food-Borne Fungal Identification

    SBC: BCN Research Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Filamentous microfungi (often colloquially known as "molds") are a major cause of food wastage throughout the world, accounting for the loss of about 10% of all food production. Although good textbooks on food mycology are available, a clear need exists for simpler and more visual identification systems. Because of ease of manufacture and use, interactive potential and ability to display color pic ...

  2. Detection of Termites Using Distributed Wireless Monitoring

    SBC: Hatchpoint, LLC            Topic: N/A

    While termites inflict almost $4 Billion dollars in damage per year in the United States, termite control still depends upon labor intensive and expensive manual monitoring techniques. This project will determine the feasibility of deploying acoustic sensor arrays that will alert a Pest Management Professional (PMP) of termite activity.

  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. Predictive Modeling of the Engineered Wood Properties Using Genetic Algorithms with Distributed Data Fusion

    SBC: Microbial Insights, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Situation or Problem: The U.S. forest products industry contributed $406 billion to the U.S. economy and employed 2,140,399 people in 2002. Currently the forest products industry is facing unprecedented competition from international imports and high wood costs. In 2003, the engineered wood panel sector produced 64.3 billion square feet of panels of which wood waste ranged from 3% to 9%. Reducing ...

  5. Gene Expression and Diagnosis of Diabetes

    SBC: ARTHROCHIP, LLC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Autoimmune diseases are difficult to diagnose, as the symptoms can be nonspecific. A single test that could readily distinguish between an autoimmune and non-autoimmune disorder would allow physicians to focus efforts on the specific disease that affects the patient. This is critical for diabetes mellitus (DM), which has two subsets, Type I and Type II. The sub ...

  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 ...

  7. Specific Diagnostic for Members of Genus Mycobacterium

    SBC: ATOM SCIENCES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): A novel microarray-based system is proposed for diagnosis of tuberculosis and tuberculosis-like respiratory infections. This diagnostic system offers a parallel method to screen clinical samples for the presence of DNA sequences from Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the causative agent of human tuberculosis, and closely related mycobacterial species, while simultan ...

  8. Cryo-Free 7.0T Actively-Shielded ICR Spectromet Magnet

    SBC: Cryomagnetics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The development of a cryogen-free, actively-shielded 7.0 T high resolution superconducting magnet for Ion Cyclotron Resonance Fourier Transform Mass Spectrometry (ICR-FTMS) will significantly reduce system operating costs, improve operator safety, and simplify operation and maintenance. Bio-scientists and genetic researchers rely more and more on ICR-FTMS. T ...

  9. High Purity Amphotericin B: A Safer Antimycotic in AIDS


    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Cumberland Pharmaceuticals and the University of Mississippi Mycotic Research Centers' long-term goal will be to improve anti-fungal pharmacotherapy particularly for patients with human immunodeficiency infections (HIV). We are jointly developing a high purity amphotericin B (AmB HP) product for intravenous administration. The nominal purity of AmB HP is 95%; ...

  10. 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 ...
