Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Primordial Genetics LLC

Institution: Keck Graduate Institute

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: EB-2012
Budget: 01/01/13 - 12/31/13

This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project proposes to engineer butanol tolerance in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae using a novel combinatorial genetic technology designed to enable yield enhancements in microbial production organisms. Microbial production of renewable fuels and chemicals is rapidly expanding. However, to...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Alder Biopharmaceuticals, Inc.

Institution: Keck Graduate Institute

Agency: Army
Topic: A04-T006
Budget: 08/02/04 - 02/08/05

Humanized antibodies currently are produced through mammalian cell culture methods that require extensive resources, in particular, choosing the manufacturing cell line and the need for highly specialized cell growth facilities. These limitations have highlighted the need for new and more innovative ways for antibody production. Yeast heterolo...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Nomadics, Inc.

Institution: Keck Graduate Institute

Agency: Army
Topic: ARMY02-T009
Budget: 08/20/03 - 08/19/05

In this Phase II proposal, Nomadics in a collaborative effort with the Keck Graduate Institute proposes to develop assays and devices based on amplifying fluorescent polymer (AFP) technology for the rapid identification of biological warfare agents in water. The rapid, sensitive detection and identification of biological agents in water will ha...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Integrated Genomics, Inc.

Institution: Keck Graduate Institute

Agency: Army
Topic: ARMY01-T005
Budget: 09/03/02 - 09/02/04

Pichia pastoris is a budding yeast used by hundreds of academic and industrial researchers to synthesize a variety of eukaryotic recombinant proteins. P. pastoris is also a model system used to investigate certain areas of eukaryotic cell biology, such as peroxisome biogenesis and degradation, and Golgi organization. The goals of this project a...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Nomadics, Inc.

Institution: Keck Graduate Institute

Agency: Army
Topic: ARMY02-T009
Budget: 08/01/02 - 01/31/03

In this Phase I STTR, Nomadics has teamed with the Keck Graduate Institute to develop a new form of highly sensitive biological filter intended for the protection of water supplies. In light of the growing concern about bioterrorism, an early warning system for the presence of biological agents in potable water would be desirable. The proposed...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Integrated Genomics, Inc.

Institution: Keck Graduate Institute

Agency: Army
Topic: ARMY01-T005
Budget: 11/26/01 - 05/25/02

The overall goal of Phase I is to generate preliminary sequence, functional, and pathway data for Pichia pastoris and to use that information to develop a strategy for strain improvement in Phase I This process will involve the construction of a highly random plasmid library and generation of 30,000 sequencing reactions. Assembly of the contigs ...
