  2. Electrocatalytic Oxidation of Lignin to High-Value Aromatics

    SBC: Faraday Technology, Inc.            Topic: 81

    Significant quantities of biomass are produced annually which represent a huge possible feedstock for biofuels and other valuable chemicals and materials. Numerous industrial processes are available for utilization of the cellulosic fraction of this biomass. However, as much as 40-50% of the biomass is composed of lignin, a cross-linked, aromatic polymer, for which at present there are few economi ...

  5. Enhancing drought tolerance in maize using strigolactones

    SBC: ASILOMAR BIO, INC.            Topic: 82

    Drought is a major constraint on crop productivity and a significant risk for American farmers. The challenges associated with drought are likely to increase due to climate change, which will increase temperatures and alter precipitation patterns. Adapting the nation & #39;s agricultural system to water-limited conditions is a major priority to ensure food security and sustainable farm economi ...

  6. Improve Competitiveness of Specialty Crop Production through a New Product Quality Verification Method

    SBC: SMART VISION WORKS, LLC            Topic: 813

    Agricultural sorting and grading is most commonly preformed primarily through the use of human resources. Farm workers sort crops by hand through visual inspection. This process is expensive and highly subjective. In addition the labor force is susceptible to human error which can impact the quality of the resulting data. The outcome of this project will be to increase efficiencies in the grading ...

  7. Virus-like-particle (VLP) vaccines for infectious bursal disease virus (IBDV).

    SBC: LARAD Inc.            Topic: 83

    Developing nations rely on poultry as their major protein source. Maintaining poultry health is of critical importance to good human nutrition worldwide. Infectious bursal disease is a contagious immunosuppressive disease affecting nearly all poultry producing regions of the world. The disease is caused by infectious bursal disease virus (IBDV) a bi-segmented double-stranded RNA virus. Vaccination ...

  8. Food Safety Monitoring through Odor Analysis

    SBC: Applied Nanotech, Inc.            Topic: 85

    In studies conducted for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, it was estimated that approximately 48 million new cases of food-related illness, resulting in 3,000 deaths and 128,000 hospitalizations, occur in the United States annually. These estimates, although lower than previous estimates, confirm that foodborne illness continues to be a problem. Together with the mortality and quali ...

  9. ALARM: Next-Generation Food-Borne Pathogen Detection

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: 85

    A leading public health problem affecting individuals world-wide is food poisoning. Pathogen contamination of post-harvest food sources is a major health issue. There is a wealth of information and data that indicate that the occurrence of infectious gastrointestinal diseases is globally on the rise; and that food-borne pathogens can readily adapt to environmental changes, contributing significant ...

  10. Development of novel malaria parastie metabolite-based non-invasive diagnostic biosensor

    SBC: GUILD ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The long term goal of the project is to use malaria parasite specific low-molecular-weight metabolites as biomarkers for development of sensitive, low-cost, simple, battery-operated field-deployable urine or saliva diagnostic biosensor for detection of malaria infection. Four malaria parasite-specific metabolites (3-Methylindole, Succinylacetone, S-Methyl-L-thiocitrulline, O-Arachidonoyl Glycidol ...
