  1. INSECT ANTIFEEDANT SALANNIN, A MODEL FOR A NEW COMMERCIAL INSECT CONTROL AGENT

    SBC: Native Plants Inc.            Topic: N/A

    SALANNIN (C34H4O9) IS A PLANT TETRANORTRITERPENOID OCCURRINGIN TWO SPECIES IN THE MELIACEAE, AZADIRACHTA INDICA A. JUSS.(NEEM) AND MELIA DUBIA CAV. SALANNIN HAS BEEN SHOWN TO BE AN ANTIFEEDANT (FEEDING INHIBITOR) AGAINST SEVERAL SPECIES OF INSECT PEST, INCLUDING DIPTERANS (FLIES), LEPIDOPTERANS (CATERPILLARS), AND COLEOPTERANS (BEETLES). WE PLAN TO INVESTIGATE THE FEASIBILITY OF MODELING A NEW CHE ...

  2. USE OF TRANSPOSABLE ELEMENTS AND RFLP MAPPING TO CLONE QUANTITATIVE TRAIT LOCI

    SBC: Native Plants Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSED RESEARCH REPRESENTS A UNIQUE COMBINATION OF TECHNOLOGIES AND SUBSEQUENT OPPORTUNITY TO EXAMINE THE MOLECULAR BASIS OF TRAITS EXHIBITING QUANTITATIVE EXPRESSIONAND INHERITANCE. IT HAS BEEN OBSERVED THAT THERE ARE OFTEN STRONG ASSOCIATIONS BETWEEN PATTERNS OF VARIATION OF ISOZYME MARKERS AND PLANT MORPHOLOGICAL CHARACTERS WHICH SHOW QUANTITATIVE INHERITANCE. RECENTLY, HELENTJARIS, EDWA ...

  3. Wireless EMG and Improved Mounting System

    SBC: MOTION CONTROL, INC            Topic: N/A

    The project focuses on the development of a small, water-proof elecromyographic (EMG) sensor for a myoelectric arm prosthesis that transmits by a wireless link and can be easily and consistently installed over any muscle site. The wireless link eliminates wires and connectors inside the arm socket that can be bulky and unreliable due to corrosion and breakage of wires representing a significant i ...

  5. NOVEL MATERIALS FOR HIGH CURRENT SWITCH APPLICATIONS

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: N/A

    IF A SERIES OF MATERIALS CAN BE ENGINEERED HAVING METAL TO INSULATOR OR METAL-TO-SEMICONDUCTOR TRANSITION AT A SPECIFIC DESIRED TEMPERATURE, THEN THESE MATERIALS WILL PAVE THE WAY FOR A VARIETY OF APPLICATIONS. ONE SUCH APPLICATION IS A HIGH CURRENT, SOLID STATE, RELIABLE SWITCH. IT IS PROPOSED TO DEVELOP SUCH MATERIALS USING TIO2-VO2 SOLID SOLUTION. THE HIGH TEMPERATURE RUTILE STRUCTURE OF VO2 IS ...

  6. HIGH SPEED GALIUM ARSENIDE DESIGN TOOL

    SBC: BONNEVILLE SCIENTIFIC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    INTEREST IN GALIUM ARSENIDE (GAAS) INTEGRATED CIRCUITS (IC) GROWING RAPIDLY BECAUSE THEY ARE VERY FASTAND RESISTANT TO RADIATION. HOWEVER, SOME SIGNIFICANT PROBLEMS ARE STILL OF CONCERN. FIRST, THE INCREASED SPEED OF THIS TECHNOLOGY HAS LEAD TO TIMING PROBLEMS IN CIRCUIT DESIGN. WITH THIS TECH- NOLOGY THE GATE SWITCHING SPEEDS HAVE BEEN INCREASED TO WHERE THEY CAN BE EQUIVALENT TO THE WIRE TRANSMI ...

  8. IMPROVED CELL AND TISSUE CULTURE SYSTEMS FOR MAIZE.

    SBC: Npi            Topic: N/A

    PRELIMINARY LABORATORY WORK HAS IDENTIFIED TWO FACTORS WHICH EFFECT THE EASE OF INITIATION OF EMBRYOGENIC CULTURES OF MAIZE AND THE EASE OF MAINTENANCE OF SUCH CULTURES. THESE TWO FACTORS ARE DESCRIBED IN THE PROPOSAL. S-AZACYTIDINE APPEARS TO EXTEND THE WINDOW DURING WHICH TISSUE IS COMPETENT TO FORM EMBRYOGENIC CALLUS. THIS FACT MAY BE EXPLOITED TO INITITATE EMBRYOGENE CULTURES FROM OTHER TISSUE ...

  9. IDENTIFICATION OF THE MOLECULAR BIOLOGY AND GENETICS OF ALUMINUM TOLERANCE

    SBC: Npi            Topic: N/A

    ENVIRONMENTAL STRESSES ARE A MAJOR FOCUS IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF ECONOMICALLY IMPROVED CROP CULTIVARS BUT TO DATE LITTLE PROGRESS HAS BEEN MADE IN DEVELOPING PROCESSES WHICH CAN IMPROVE ON THE UNDERSTANDING OF STRESS TOLERANCE OR AID IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF STRESS TOLERANT CULTIVARS. THE PROPOSED RESEARCH DEVELOPS A COMPREHENSIVE APPROACH TO UNDERSTANDING STRESS TOLERANCE. ALUMINUM TOXICITY HAS BEEN C ...

  10. CHLORELLA AND ITS VIRUSES AS AN EXPERIMENTAL PLANT SYSTEM

    SBC: Npi            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED RESEARCH IS DIRECTED TOWARD ACCESSING THE FEASIBILITY OF USING THE GREEN ALGAE CHLORELLA AND ITS INFECTION BY A NATURALLY OCCURRING VIRUS AS AN EXPERIMENTAL PLANT SYSTEM. THE VIRUS, PARAMECIUM BURSARIA CHLORELLA VIRUS-1, PBCV-1, WILL BE INVESTIGATED TO DETERMINE ITS POTENTIAL AS A MOLECULAR VEHICLE TO INTRODUCE FOREIGN DNA INTO PLANT CELLS. SPECIFICALLY, ANALYSIS OF VIRAL MUTANTS AND ...
