Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2005
Budget: 01/01/05 - 12/31/05

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project focuses on developing genetically engineered, broad -spectrum disease resistance in plants. An Aribdopsis transcription factor, TDR1, has been identified that causes resistance to three pathogens when overexpressed in transgenic plants. However, constitutive expression of TDR1 or ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Agriculture
Topic: 2004
Budget: 01/01/04 - 12/31/04

Nitrogen fertilizer is a critical limiting crop input and a significant expense to farmers. The purpose of this research is to identify genes that can be used in crop plants such as corn to create plants that produce high yields with reduced fertilizer application.

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2004
Budget: 01/01/04 - 12/31/04

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR)Phase II project proposes to further optimize the techniques for engineering broad-spectrum disease resistance in crop plants. Protection of crops against pathogens is one of the most significant unmet needs in agriculture. Despite billions of dollars spent on fungicides and other crop protection ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Agriculture
Topic: 2003
Budget: 01/01/03 - 12/31/03

NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Natural rubber is a vital and irreplaceable raw material. The United States uses approximately 20% of the global supply for its industries and is completely dependent on imports from developing countries. A dependable rubber supply is endangered by many factors, including susceptibility to pathogen attack, diminishing acre...

Topic: 2003
Budget: 01/01/03 - 12/31/03

NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will establish the feasibility of generating plants with enhanced biomass and seed yield by introduction of a particular transgene. Mendel Biotechnology, Inc. generated transgenic Arabidopsis plants in which one transcription cofactor of the AT-hook class was over-exp...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Agriculture
Topic: 2002
Budget: 01/01/02 - 12/31/02

Mendel Biotechnology, Incorporated has identified approximately 1700 transcription factors (TFs) from Arabidopsis thaliana. We have proprietary methods which will allow us to determine the interaction of TFs with any promoter of interest. The primary objective of this Phase I SBIR grant is to identify A. thaliana transcription factors which can ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2002
Budget: 01/01/02 - 12/31/02

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project proposes to establish the feasibility of engineering broad-spectrum disease resistance in crops. Pathogens cause enormous world-wide annual losses in crop yield. Prior research has shown that constitutive activation of the transcription factor AtERF1 confers resistance to several fun...
