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

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project proposes to develop a platform for the production of spider silk fibroins in plant trichomes. Synthetic spider silk has great potential as an environmentally-friendly biomaterial because it is very flexible yet has a tensile strength greater than steel. A great need exists for a sca...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: B1-2010
Budget: 01/01/10 - 12/31/10

This SBIR Phase I project will develop a plan to use a protein normally produced in plants, to control phytopathogenic fungi. They have cloned a gene that encodes for this protein, expressed it in bacterial vectors, demonstrated activity against three phytopathogenic fungi, demonstrated activity on a grass, and they have done RNA interference t...
