  2. Cost-Effective Biomass Conversion via an Online Carbohydrate Monitoring Device

    SBC: ADVANCED MICROLABS, LLC            Topic: 88

    Biomass is a renewable resource with high potential to achieve cost effective, reliable, and environmentally friendly energy to the American consumer, but yet is still deemed inefficient. First, current methodologies only allow conversion of cellulosic materials into biofuel, leaving energy-rich hemicellulosic material unutilized. Second, even though carbohydrate conversion is the focus of biomass ...

  3. Development of Novel Calcium Receptor Based Mineral Supplementation Technologies For Inland Shrimp Aquaculture

    SBC: VIRGINIA COBIA FARMS            Topic: 87

    Recent studies have demonstrated the importance of ionic composition of water and diets used in inland marine shrimp aquaculture. We propose to develop a feed and/or water additive approach to address this issue by using our knowledge of calcium-sensing receptors (CaSRs) in crustaceans and their roles in osmoregulation, nutrient sensing, and gowth. By supplementing diets with specific CaSR modulat ...
