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. DESICCATION OF ENTOMOGENOUS NEMATODES FOR LONG-TERM MASS STORAGE

    SBC: Biosys            Topic: N/A

    INFECTIVE JUVENILES (IJ'S) OF STEINERNEMATID NEMATODES IN THE GENUS NEOAPLECTANA ARE EFFECTIVE CONTROL AGENTS FOR A WIDE RANGE OF INSECT PESTS. MARKET REQUIREMENTS FOR THE YEAR 1987 DETERMINE A PRODUCTION GOAL OF 1011 NEMATODES PER WEEK, WITH 1988 REQUIREMENTS APPROXIMATING 1016 PER WEEK. PHASE I ADDRESSES THE PROBLEM OF STORAGE AND SHIPMENT OF S SUCH LARGE NUMBERS (=LARGE VOLUMES) OF NEMATODES. I ...

  2. ISOLATION OF MAIZE NUCLEAR MALE STERILE GENES BY TRANSPOSON-TAGGING

    SBC: Dna Plant Technologi            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE TO USE TRANSPOSON-TAGGING TO ISOLATE A NUCLEAR MALE STERILE (MS) GENE FROM MAIZE. WE HAVE GENERATED EIGHT NEW MALE STERILE MUTANTS IN STOCKS CARRYING THE TRANSPOSABLEELEMENT ACTIVATOR (AC) AND WE ARE CURRENTLY ANALYZING DNA FROM THESE MUTANTS FOR THE PRESENCE OF NOVEL RESTRICTION FRAGMENTS CARRYING AC HOMOLOGOUS SEQUENCES. PRELIMINARY ANALYSIS HAS ALLOWED US TO IDENTIFY SEVERAL UNIQUE R ...

  4. COMBUSTION ENHANCER FOR PRESCRIPTION BURNING OF CHAPARRAL

    SBC: Humbug Mountain Research            Topic: N/A

    VEGETATION MANAGEMENT BY PRESCRIBED BURNING CAN BE MADE MOREVERSATILE IF THE WINDOW OF CLIMATE CONDITIONS DURING WHICH A BURN IS FEASIBLE CAN BE EXTENDED. TESTING TO ASSESS THE FEASIBILITY OF AN OXIDIZER-CONTAINING COMBUSTION ENHANCER TOPROVIDE THE EXTENSION FOR PRESCRIBED BURNING OF CHAPARRAL IS PROPOSED. THE BASIC APPROACH ENTAILS THE APPLICATION OF OXIDIZER-CONTAINING COMBUSTION ENHANCER DIRECT ...

  6. A TOXIN-DIRECTED APPROACH TO SELECT LETTUCE RESISTANT TO CORKY ROOT ROT

    SBC: Plant Genetics Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE HOST-SPECIFIC TOXIN PRODUCED BY THE CORKY ROOT ROT CAUSAL BACTERIUM PROVIDES US WITH A TOOL TO SELECT THE DISEASE-RESISTANT LETTUCE FROM A MASS POPULATION OF GERMPLASMS. THE MAJOR OBJECTIVES OF THIS PROPOSED RESEARCH ARE: 1) PURIFY THE HOST-SPECIFIC TOXIN. THE TOXIN WILL BE EXTRACTED FROM THE CRUDE CULTURE FILTRATE IN WHICH THE BACTERIUM HAS BEEN GROWN AND REFINED TO ITS MAXIMAL PURITY BY VARI ...

  8. LARGE SCALE MICROPROPAGATION AND FIELD TRANSFER SYSTEMS FOR HARDWOOD TREE SPECIES

    SBC: Tissue-Grown Corporation            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL ADDRESSES DEVELOPMENT OF IMPROVED MASS PROPAGATION AND FIELD TRANSFER TECHNIQUES FOR HARDWOOD FORESTRY SPECIES, USING EUCALYPTUS AS A MODEL GENUS. THE PROPOSED RESEARCH BUILDS ON RECENT BREAKTHROUGHS IN FIELD TRANSFER TECHNOLOGY, MOST NOTABLY, IN THE AREAS OF LIGNIFICATION IN VITRO, DIRECT FIELD ROOTING OF PLANTLETS AND IN VITRO HARDENING TECHNIQUES. ADDITIONALLY, THE PROPOSED RESEAR ...

  10. A RAPID AND VERY SENSITIVE BIOLUMINESCENT IMMUNOASSAY WILL BE USED FOR TRHE DETECTION AND MEASUREMENT OF SALMONELLA BACTERIA IN FOODS.

    SBC: Homogenetics Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A RAPID AND VERY SENSITIVE BIOLUMINESCENT IMMUNOASSAY WILL BE USED FOR TRHE DETECTION AND MEASUREMENT OF SALMONELLA BACTERIA IN FOODS. BOTH POLYCOLONAL AND MONOCLONAL ANTIBODIES TO SALMONELLA WILL BE USED. IT IS HOPED TO ATTAINDETECTION LIMITS OF A FEW HUNDRED BACTERIA PER ML. IN AN ASSAY TAKING ONLY A FEW HOURS.
