  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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  10. STIMULUS PAIRS IN 3D AUDITORY BRAINSTEM RESPONSE

    SBC: ABRATECH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    THE GOAL OF THIS RESEARCH IS TO DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF COMBINING THREE-CHANNEL RECORDING OF THE AUDITORY BRAINSTEM RESPONSE (ABR) WITH A STIMULUS-PAIRS TECHNIQUE SO AS TO MEASURE THE DECREMENT IN RESPONSE THAT OCCURS IN THE RELATIVE REFRACTORY PERIOD (RRP). THIS METHOD WILL PERMIT DETECTION OF ANY ABNORMALITIES THAT AFFECT THE RRP, AS THE PARAMETERS CAN BE ADJUSTED SO THAT THERE IS DECREMENT ...
