  1. Simultaneous Production of Multiple Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids Using Marine Microalga Pleurochrysis carterae

    SBC: ALGAEN CORPORATION            Topic: 87

    The cardiovascular benefits of fish oil enriched in omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (n-3 PUFAs), namely eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), are well-documented. When combined with gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), n-3 PUFAs have been shown to reduce the risk of chronic inflammatory disorders, such as asthma and rheumatoid arthritis. However, the consumption of fish oil remain ...

  2. Precise Location Tracking of Livestock using RFID Phase and Nonlinear Filtering

    SBC: CLAIRVOYANT TECHNOLOGY, LLC            Topic: 83

    Ultra-high frequency (UHF) RFID offers longer read range and better immunity to interference when compared to low frequency technology for livestock identification. However, the longer UHF read range can create an over-range problem by reading tags in local "hot spots" well outside of the intended read zone. With UHF it is not enough to know that a tag has been read, but you must know where the ta ...

  4. Development of a serotype-independent vaccine based on Salmonella T3SA proteins

    SBC: INTEGRATED ANIMAL RESEARCH LLC            Topic: 83

    Salmonella is a bacteriathat causessevere stomach and gut distressinpeople andis the leading cause of food-borne illnesses resulting in hospitalization and death in the US. The resulting economic losses caused bythisbacteriain the livestock industry are staggering with much of the loss attributed to recalls, permanent disruption of the gut lining impairing nutrient absorption, and necessary cullin ...

  5. Value-Added Production of Sorrel Juice from Red Sorrel Plant

    SBC: Jimfina Group LLC            Topic: 812

    Engaging in alternative enterprises is one of the options that small farms could use to enhance farm income. In addition to enhancing farm income, alternative enterprises help to diversify farm operations and reduce the risk associated with farm income. Another option to enhance farm income is to engage in value-added activities. This project proposes to grow red sorrel (sorrel) as an alternative ...

  6. Development of grower applicable Alfalfa Leafcutting Bee incubation protocols to extend interruption duration for improved pollination management that improves seed yield and bee health

    SBC: Kairosys Inc.            Topic: 812

    The purpose of this proposal is to improve the protocols of incubation interruption of Alfalfa Leafcutting Bees (ALBs) used in the managed pollination of alfalfa seed crop. An efficient alfalfa pollination management program coordinates bee release with bloom onset while minimizing residual pesticide hazard. Our customer feedback suggests that this approach may increase yield up to 100% for grower ...

  7. Detecting Distress Events of Isolated Elderly Living in Remote Rural Regions

    SBC: MOAI TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: 86

    The objective of this project is to develop technology for detecting distress events of isolated elderly people living alone in remote rural regions. Many people live in isolated rural homes for a significant percentage of their adult life. As these people become elderly they can have a high preference to stay in their home as long they believe they can care for themselves. They may also be unable ...

  8. Alfalfa bloom prediction using plant images and processing techniques for the purpose of improving pollination using alfalfa leafcutting bees

    SBC: Kairosys Inc.            Topic: 813

    The purpose of this proposal is to conduct research that will provide alfalfa seed growers a bloom forecast application to improve their pollination practices and increase yield. Most U.S. growers outside of California use Alfalfa Leafcutting Bees (ALB) for pollination because they increase yield by more than 50% over honey bees. Growers spend ~$400/acre for ALB's, yet our customer diligence i ...
