  1. Miniature Chemical Ionization Mass Spectrometer for Measuring Tropospheric Ammonia

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Southwest Sciences proposes to develop an automated, fast, and compact instrument to measure tropospheric ammonia from light aircraft. Ammonia plays important roles in aerosol particle chemistry, and particle characteristics are critical in understanding climate change and air quality. Existing ammonia instruments are either too large or measure too slowly for use on light aircraft. The unique ...

  2. Lifetime Prediction Model for Pavement Repair

    SBC: Simcredible            Topic: N/A

    A software product is proposed to enhance lifetime prediction and design of structural pavements by including the effects of fatigue cracking. The fatigue lifetime prediction (FLIP) code will calculate incremental crack growth that occurs in pavements for cycles of stress below the yield stress. FLIP combines crack growth calculations with an extrapolation procedure to predict the growth of fat ...

  6. Synchronized Multimedia E-Book Development for Reading Fluency and Comprehension

    SBC: US Teach, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The purpose of this project is to study the relation between the use of computer-based multimedia e-books and children's reading fluency and comprehension. The researchers are carrying out the project in three phases. In the first phase, the researchers are observing 3rd grade students' use of e-book materials over a 15-week period and are developing a model of fluency and comprehension change bas ...

  8. ABR train-block detection of small acoustic neuromas

    SBC: ABRATECH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The evoked response called the ABR (Auditory Brainstem Response) is affected by nerve compression by acoustic neuromas, but is not presently sensitive enough to detect small tumors. If the ABR could be used to detect tumors, it would reduce overall medical costs and also provide a means to judge rate of tumor progression. This project proposes to improve the s ...

  9. In vivo transcription factor DNA binding analysis

    SBC: ACTIVE MOTIF, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Currently, there exist a number of methods for the study of transcription factors and gene-promoter activity. These include reporter gene assays, gel shift assays, and expression-profiling methods such as microarray analysis and SAGE. These methods are well established and have been used to generate a wealth of information. Accordingly, there are many commercia ...

  10. Novel conformation-based nuclear receptor activity assay

    SBC: ACTIVE MOTIF, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The objective of this proposal is the development of novel methods for the study of the Class II Nuclear Receptors Thyroid hormone receptor (TR), Retinoic Acid Receptor (RAR), and Vitamin D3 Receptor (VDR). Like other members of the nuclear receptor superfamily, these transcription factors directly activate or repress target genes by binding to DNA response ele ...
