Luminescent Carbon Dots for Optical Imaging
Carbon dots (also called “carbon quantum dots”, “carbon nanodots”, etc.) represent a new class of photoactive nanomaterials that compete effectively with semiconductor quantum dots, a market that was valued at $961.4 million in 2013 and is projected to be larger than $5 billion in 2020. In addition to being benign and nontox...

Engineered Aquaculture Ecosystem for Managing Wastewater
This aquaculture ecosystem utilizes low RPM paddlewheels to control water flow rate and feed fish waste to algae to reduce eutrophication effects. For every ton of fish produced as much as 66 kilograms of nitrogen waste and 10.5 kilograms of phosphorus waste are produced. The waste feeds plankton and algae, and in excess can lead to blooms and then...

Software Platform that Enables Large Scale Brain Wave Data Collaboration (2014-081)
This software platform, EEGnet, provides researchers with an efficient database to view and interact with electroencephalography (EEG) brain wave data. EEG is an electrophysical monitoring system that records electrical activity in the brain and is used most often to diagnose epilepsy. Traditionally, EEG research has been limited due to a lack of l...

New Promoter for Driving Tissue-Specific Gene Expression in Plants (2014-074)
This promoter drives constitutive and/or tissue-specific expression of genes in transgenic plants. A promoter is a specific DNA sequence that regulates the expression of downstream coding or other noncoding nucleic acids. As such, promoters are important molecular tools for agricultural biotechnology. There are two main constitutive promoters curre...
