The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Low-Cost Succinate Production Using Grain Sorghum and Engineered E. coli

    SBC: AgRenew, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Succinic acid is referred to as a "platform chemical" because it can be reacted with other molecules to create several industrial chemicals. The current 10 million lb/year market for synthetic succinic acid is limited due to cost of manufacture. If successful, this project will result in a low-cost succinic acid bioprocess, thereby increasing market potential and helping to move the United States ...

  2. Poly (Lactic Acid)/Starch Blend for a Degradable Agricultural Mulch Film

    SBC: AgRenew, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Agricultural mulch films are used for the production of vegetables and fruits. Thin plastic films (typically polyethylene) are spread along the rows of plants at the beginning of the growing season. Holes are made in the films to plant the seeds or seedlings. The use of mulch films speeds the ripening of crops, conserves moisture and fertilizer, and inhibits weed growth, fungus infection and insec ...

  3. High Availability Unmanned Aerial Platform for Carbon Cycle Measurements

    SBC: KALSCOTT ENGINEERING INC            Topic: 21a

    75853B Carbon cycle monitoring is a key component of the mission to understand global scale climate change. In particular, there is a need to accurately measure atmospheric carbon dioxide levels at regular intervals, and at various altitudes and locations, using low cost and simple aerial platforms. This project will create and demonstrate an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) that will lift carbon ...

  4. A Laser-based Instrument Platform for Measuring Methane and Other Trace Gases

    SBC: LI-COR BIOSCIENCES, INC.            Topic: 08

    78618S Robust and reliable trace-gas analyzers (e.g., for isotopic carbon, methane, nitroxide, ammonia, etc.), suitable for long-term measurements, are not commercially available. Such analyzers are needed to achieve a better understanding of the global budget of these trace gases and to quantify their exchanges between the atmosphere and the terrestrial biosphere. This project will develop a tu ...

  5. Micro/Nano-Encapsulation of Partial Oxidation Biocatalysts

    SBC: LNKCHEMSOLUTIONS            Topic: 30

    78011S Many industrial liquid-phase catalytic processes that require the use of some kind of active species (e.g. sensors, biosensors, chelating agents, and chemical traps) cannot be ¿heterogeneized¿ without significantly penalizing chemical activity and/or selectivity. Biphasic liquid media strategies are an alternative, but these rely heavily on confinement of the active species in one of th ...

  6. A Soil Probe for In-Situ Near Infrared Spectroscopic Measurement of Soil Carbon

    SBC: VERIS TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: 22a

    76063S International initiatives are underway to reduce greenhouse gases in the air. The sequestration of carbon in agricultural soils is a candidate technology for achieving this reduction; however, more rapid and less expensive methods of measuring soil carbon are needed. This project will develop a soil probe for carbon measurement based on near infrared reflectance spectroscopy. The probe ...

  7. Multimedia Writing Strategy Instruction for LD Student

    SBC: EDGE ENTERPRISES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The purpose of this Phase II project is to develop and test the effects of interactive multimedia (IM) writing strategy instruction on the writing performance of students with learning disabilities. The major goals associated with the project are to: (a) revise, expand, and field-test the IM program for teaching comma strategies that was developed and pilot tes ...

  8. Oral Language Strategy Instruction for At-Risk Youth

    SBC: EDGE ENTERPRISES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The purpose of this project is to design and pilot test a prototype interactive multimedia (IM) program for teaching oral language strategies to students in grades 6 through 9. The instructional program will be designed for use in a variety of settings, including general education classrooms, special education classes, tutoring centers, homes, and specialized s ...

  9. Electrokinetic Method For Single Molecule DNA Sequencing

    SBC: LI-COR BIOSCIENCES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): We propose a new approach to single-molecule DMA sequencing that can be done in a simple microtiter plate fitted with two electrodes. Over two-hundred different single DMA molecules would be sequenced simultaneously in a single well (maximum 10 nt/s per molecule) with read lengths 20 kb or more. Sequencing cost is potentially lower with this method compared ...

  10. Metal Enhancement for a Near-IR Fluorescence Scanner

    SBC: LI-COR BIOSCIENCES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Fluorescent molecules that are in close proximity to metallic surfaces, including silver and gold island films, produce increased fluorescence intensity along with increased photostability and decreased fluorescent lifetimes. These metal island films have been largely studied for their ability to increase fluorescent intensities in low quantum yield fluorophore ...
