Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: BT
Budget: 04/01/17 - 03/31/19

The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project will be the production of enhanced-nutrition soybeans that have high levels of protein for use in aquafeed. Meat and fish consumption is rapidly growing due to increased world population and affluence. Aquaculture is the fastest growing foo...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: BT
Budget: 01/01/16 - 06/30/16

The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) project will be the production of enhanced-nutrition (EN) soybeans that contain taurine and increased methionine. As the world population increases and becomes more affluent, meat and fish consumption is rapidly growing. The fastest growing food sector is a...

Budget: 01/01/09 - 12/31/09

The biodiesel industry is growing rapidly in the U.S. and is expected to continue growing. However, even if all oilseeds produced in the U.S. were used for biodiesel, the supply would still fall short of the nation¿s need. Moreover, as the biodiesel market increases, food prices are expected to increase due to the efflux of seeds into the exp...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2008
Budget: 01/01/08 - 12/31/08

This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I research aims to increase the efficiency in which plants use nitrogen (N) and to enhance their tolerance to water stress. The proposed project will introduce into oilseed plants a novel pathway that will increase production of the amino acid, gamma-amino butyric acid (GABA). GABA has been implicate...
