A prototype device for applying beneficial mites to a greenhouse crop
TS-038983 — A method of evenly distributing beneficial mites throughout a greenhouse using a novel device.
Beneficial insects and mites feed on plant pests to improve overall plant health in greenhouses. Also called "biological controls," these mites are a valuable tool in pest management. Current distribution methods typically blow the mites over the crops, which result in uneven application…

A New Agrobacterium Strain for Plant Transformation
TS-015270 — A new Agrobacterium strain was recovered from soybean field soil that has shown a 10 to 100-fold increase in plant transformation rates, particularly for soybean
Agrobacterium is a Gram-negative, plant pathogenic soil bacterium that has the unique capacity to transfer some of its DNA to specific cells in the plant host. Over the past 35 years, this bacterium has played a central role in basic scientific research and applied agricultural biotechnology in th…

System for expression of genes in plants from a virus-based expression vector
TS-015168 — TMV-based expression vector system modifications result in an easier, more reliable, and more cost-effective way to produce recombinant proteins in plants.
Plants exhibit potential as recombinant protein production systems. One method of inducing protein production involves a modified cDNA copy of an RNA plant virus. cDNAs are then transcribed in vitro, and RNA inoculated onto plants. This final step is expensive with variable success rates. Another …

Small Molecule Modulators as a Means to Control Tomato Bacterial Canker
TS-014936 — Small molecule modulators of Clavibacter michiganensis subsp. michiganensis (Cmm) as a means to control tomatobacterial canker.
Current efforts to control tomato cankers rely heavily on copper bactericides and antibiotics. These methods have significant limitations in that they exhibit limited efficacy in treatment and may promote pathogen resistance. Common strategies for controlling tomato bacterial canker mainly rely on…

Natural and Synthetic Soybean Promoters that Regulate Gene Expression
TS-014870 — Increasing soybean production by enhancing already existing genetically modified traits
As the global population expands, the demand for food increases. The agricultural industry is continually seeking methods to grow stronger crops that are less susceptible to disease and environmental stress. Currently, farmers use pesticides and genetically modified crops to increase crop yields. …
