  1. Pathogen-derived Resistance To Whitefly-

    SBC: Exelixis Plant Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The whitefly pest and vector, and the geminiviruses that it transmits, have become the principaldeterrents to vegetable production in the U.S. sunbelt states, in Mexico, and throughout the CaribbeanBasin since the introduction and spread of the B biotype whitefly vector in the late 1980's. The mosteffective means of controlling geminivirus-incited diseases is through resistant tomato varieties. ...

  2. A Novel Cyclodextrin-Based Adsorption Process for Natural Products Purification

    SBC: Chemica Technologies, Inc            Topic: N/A

    Plants are increasingly being used to provide industry with high-value chemicals, biochemicals, and drugs. This proposal focuses on the isolation and purification of specific components in plant-derived oils. For example, L-menthod is a valuable chemical that is the major component of peppermint oil. L-Menthol is widely used in the flavoring of chewing gums, candies, desserts, and beverages; an ...

  3. AUTOMATED INFILTROMETER FOR DETERMINATION OF SOIL HYDRAULIC PROPERTIES

    SBC: Flugstad Engineering            Topic: N/A

    The ability to measure the hydraulic infiltration and permeability properties of soils and various geotechnical materials is a growing need in science and engineering with the increased emphasis on groundwater quality protection, water conservation, erosion control and other water relevant issues. These measurements have classically been performed on soils using various forms of infiltrometer and ...

  4. A HIGH TECHNOLOGY VERMICOMPOSTING REACTOR: PRODUCT TESTING AND COMMERCIALIZATION

    SBC: Oregon Soil Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Disposal of organic wastes, including animal, food garden and industrial wastes, is expensive and can create environmental problems. High technology vermicomposting systems can convert such wastes into valuable horticultural growth media or soil amendments. The value of these to the horticultural industry was demonstrated clearly in Phase I research. The Oregon Soil Corporation has operated a cont ...

  5. Tetraploid Pacific Oysters for "All-Triploid" Production

    SBC: Whiskey Creek Oyster Farm            Topic: N/A

    In the last decade, triploid Pacific oysters (Crassostrea gigas) have become an important component of the oyster culture industry in the Pacific Northwest. Because of their reduced gonadal development, triploid oysters provide a high quality product which can be marketed year-round. Currently, triploid Pacific oysters are induced primarily by inhibiting the second polar body with cytochalasin ...

  6. HIGH ACUITY 3-D ACOUSTIC IMAGING SYSTEM

    SBC: APPLIED CONCEPT RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Frequent undertreatment of cancer pain persists despite intensive educational efforts. The reasons include the difficulty in teaching complex pain management skills and the problems associated with evaluating clinical competence. We propose to develop a computer simulator to teach and evaluate cancer pain management skills. The simulator will use multimedia interactive technology to create a high ...

  10. INTERACTIVE CD-ROM FOR SMOKELESS TOBACCO CESSATION

    SBC: DESCHUTES RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The overall goal of this project is to develop a self-help adjuvant behavioral treatment for use in conjunction with the transdermal nicotine patch (TNP) for smoking cessation. The program will be composed of two components: a credit-card sized hand-held computer and a behavioral treatment guide. The computer will be used to structure a scheduled smoking regimen that will prepare users for initi ...
