Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Hybrid System for Ultrasound Signal, Spectral, and Image Analyses to Enhance Meat Quality Evaluation in Food Animals

    SBC: BIOTRONICS, INC            Topic: N/A

    Determining meat quality attributes in food animals is essential for genetic selection, sorting, and marketing. Ultrasound techniques have the potential to benefit the swine industry for improvements in both quality and yield measures by non-destructive means. There is a need to continually improve percentage intramuscular fat estimation accuracy and reduced bias, especially before integration of ...

  2. Enhancing Pork Quality and Value Using Live Animal Ultrasound Technology for Better Breeding and Marketing Decisions

    SBC: BIOTRONICS, INC            Topic: N/A

    Consumers and an ever growing segment of the pork industry know that more optimal levels of marbling must be put back into the high-value pork cuts. Biotronics, Inc. is developing technology to solve this problem by using real-time ultrasound to measure the percent of intramuscular (% IMF) fat in live pigs and hot carcasses. The premise of the project is that swine breeders can be rewarded financi ...

  4. Ambient Processing and Nutritional Assessment of Trypsin-Inhibitor-Null Soybean Products

    SBC: SCHILLINGER SEED INC            Topic: N/A

    Commercial soybeans require heat processing to deactivate anti-nutrition factors/enzymes. Schillinger Seed has developed a new soybean free of the key anti-nutrition Kunitz Tyrpsin Inhibitor (SKTI-Null). This new SKTI-Null) soybean presents the opportunity for ambient or cold processing of soybeans for use in food and feed. The elimination of heat processing eliminates the need of a signifcant amo ...

  5. Autogenous replicon particle (ARP) vaccines for porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrom virus (PRRSV)

    SBC: HARRISVACCINES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    There is a clear and immediate need for improved PRRSV vaccines. PRRS is estimated to cost pork producers in the U.S. nearly $600 million annually and with a national eradication effort being proposed, the need for a second generation vaccine tool that is effective and safe is crucial. The use of a vector such as replicon particles (RP) merges subunit and modified live technologies to safely induc ...

  6. Rural Iowa Dialysis Patient Record Management and Transfer Method

    SBC: Tripletail Ventures, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Tripletail Ventures, Inc. aims to facilitate the creation, adoption, organization, update, transmission, portability, and sharing of rural patient health records, specifically for a Medicare certified dialysis unit. Many rural dialysis units in Iowa do not have access to their patients complete records, spend considerable time and expense tracking vital information from other providers, and do not ...

  7. Captive Reproduction, Hatchery Research and Production of Endothermic Pacific Bluefin Tuna Juveniles:Toward Responsible Pacific Bluefin Tuna Mariculture in the United States

    SBC: Ichthus Unlimited, LLC            Topic: 87

    Tuna ranching is dependent on wild-captured fish and the current operational model is largely unsustainable as it increases fishing pressure on the Pacific bluefin tuna (PBFT) wild stock. Recent ISC (International Scientific Committee for Tuna and Tuna-like Species in the North Pacific Ocean) assessments indicate that this stock is "alarmingly overfished", while experiencing high exploitation rate ...

  8. Broadly protective porcine Streptococcus suis vaccines

    SBC: PATHOVACS INCORPORATED            Topic: 83

    Non-technical SummaryCurrently, there are no efficacious vaccines to protect piglets against disease caused by the emerging zoonotic (transmissible from animals to humans) pathogen, Streptococcus suis. Porcine S. suis disease is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in weaned piglets and is a significant economic burden on pork producers globally. Losses to the pig industry globally are in the ...

  9. STEM lesson creation coaching framework to improve the pedagogy of K-5 teachers implementing the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)

    SBC: StarrMatica Learning Systems, Inc.            Topic: 86

    High-quality schools positively influence the economic development prospects in rural areas by attracting business and industry to the area and producing the educated labor force that is needed to sustain economic growth. The greatest source of a highly educated population in rural areas is native individuals who attended college locally or who return home after completing their education elsewher ...

  10. Customizable Science Informational Texts to Support K-5 Teachers Implementing the Common Core and NGSS

    SBC: StarrMatica Learning Systems, Inc.            Topic: 86

    Today's elementary teachers must address the needs of an increasingly diverse population of students--ranging from those who enter their classrooms reading at many years below grade level to those who are many years above grade level. This discrepancy is often the most profound in rural school districts. This impacts teachers' abilities to help students acquire strong skills in reading--fo ...
