  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. 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 ...

  3. Development of Rigorous and Reliable Methods to Preserve Maize Pollen

    SBC: Accelerated AG Technologies, LLC            Topic: 82

    The seed industry generates tremendous value from hybrid crops relative to varietal or self-pollinated crops. For example, while corn (a hybrid crop) and soybeans (a self-pollinated crop) were planted on approximately the same land area in the U.S. in 2015, the total value of the corn hybrid seed industry was greater than 4x the value of the soybean seed industry. However, producing hybrid seed is ...

  4. Deriving a new biobased product from wastewater: Production of a slow release algal-based fertilizer.

    SBC: GROSS-WEN TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 84

    The release of nutrients such as nitrogen and phosphorus into our natural waterbodies is a major issue negatively impacting the United States environmentally and economically. It is estimated that it costs the Gulf Coast fishing industry approximately $82 million per year. This issue is caused by misplaced nutrients. This project uses an algae-based treatment system to remove nutrients from a plac ...

  5. Design Environment for Educator-Student Collaboration Allowing Real-Time Engineering-centric, STEM (DESCARTES) Exploration in Middle Grades

    SBC: Parametric Studio, Inc.            Topic: 1

    This project team will develop and test a prototype of Descartes, an online game and simulation platform for design-to-build engineering projects for students in grades 4 to 7. The prototype will include a virtual workspace for students to create and test models. Students will apply learning to design a boat using engineering principles, and the prototype will incorporate a 3D printer to create a ...

  6. Development of a Humanized Pig Model of Cystic Fibrosis

    SBC: EXEMPLAR GENETICS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Cystic fibrosis (CF) is caused by mutations in the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) gene. The CFTR gene encodes a chloride channel that regulates ion flow across epithelial cell membranes. Most CF patients have a mutation that deletes phenylalanine 508 (?F508) and prevents CFTR from being properly processed and delivered to cell membr ...

  7. Gene Silencing with U1 Adaptor Oligonucleotides

    SBC: INTEGRATED DNA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Our understanding of complex biological phenomena and disease progression has led to the realization that changes in the expression of genes underlie many of these processes. Developing reagents that can selectively al ter the expression level of any desired gene has been a goal of both scientists and clinicians for years. Historically, the most common approac ...

  8. Improved influenza A virus vaccines using alpha-Gal epitope modification

    SBC: NEWLINK GENETICS CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Humans develop natural antibodies against a sugar molecule called Gal, which is present on proteins and lipids in most other species. These antibodies represent one of the strongest natural barriers to infection with ba cteria, parasites and viruses. NewLink Genetics has licensed this technology as the HyperAcute(c) vaccine and it is in Phase I and II clinical ...

  9. Development of Novel Neuroprotective Agents for Parkinson?s Disease

    SBC: PK Biosciences Corporation            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Parkinson's disease (PD) is a debilitating neurodegenerative disorder characterized by progressive and substantial loss of dopaminergic neurons in the substantia nigra compacta (SNc), resulting in severe neurological si gns including tremors, bradykinesia, and rigidity. The existing approaches to PD treatment are mainly focused on alleviating the motor symptoms ...
