Description: The bovine viral diarrhea virus (BVDV) causes disease in cattle and other ruminants. Diseased animals may show respiratory and reproductive symptoms ranging from mild to very severe, in some cases resulting in the death of the animal. The disease primarily affects young cattle and usually results in mucosal lesions that can be misdiagnosed because of their similarity to infections by other viruses. BVDV effects significant ec...Mon, 04 May 2015 07:01:18 GMTlicensing@iastate.eduhttp://isurftech.technologypublisher.com/technology/19132Diisocyanates from Bio-Renewable Sourceshttp://isurftech.technologypublisher.com/technology/19131 Summary: Polyurethane materials completely based on bio-renewable resources have been successfully developed at Iowa State University. Description: Polyurethanes are an important class of polymers with uses in a wide variety of materials. The raw materials for production of polyurethanes are polyols and diisocyantes, which are typically derived from petroleum-based feedstocks. While production of polyols from biorenewable sources such as vegetable oils has been successfully developed and implemented in commercially available products, production of diisocyantes from renewable sources has no...Mon, 04 May 2015 07:01:18 GMTlicensing@iastate.eduhttp://isurftech.technologypublisher.com/technology/19131Sorbent Assisted Catalyst for the One-Pot Sequestration and Conversion of Renewable Feedstocks into Fuelshttp://isurftech.technologypublisher.com/technology/19129Summary: Iowa State University and Ames Laboratory researchers have developed a technology that provides a simplified and economical production of hydrocarbon fuel from renewable resources with higher energy potential compared to ethanol or biodiesel. The ability to achieve higher yields from lipid feedstock, and in particular algae oils, by not utilizing current methods of fatty acid conversion to methyl esters, makes this technology economically attractive. Iowa State University is looking for industry partners to commercialize this technology.

Description: Inbred corn lines have two identical copies of their genome, and are valuable breeding resources since offspring are identical to their parent. Since offspring of hybrids are genetically segregating, hybrid seed needs to be generated from genetically stable, parental inbred lines. Development of traditional corn inbred lines starts from heterozygous plants and requires continued self-pollination, which takes five to eight generations befo...Mon, 04 May 2015 07:01:15 GMTlicensing@iastate.eduhttp://isurftech.technologypublisher.com/technology/19126Cry3Bb1-Resistant Strains of Western Corn Rootworm - Hopkinton Strainhttp://isurftech.technologypublisher.com/technology/19125Mon, 04 May 2015 07:01:14 GMTlicensing@iastate.eduhttp://isurftech.technologypublisher.com/technology/19125Method and System for Manufacturing an Article Using Portable Hand-Held Toolshttp://isurftech.technologypublisher.com/technology/19123Mon, 04 May 2015 06:51:34 GMTlicensing@iastate.eduhttp://isurftech.technologypublisher.com/technology/19123"Healthy Beef": Fatty Acid Synthase Genetic Markers Associated with a Healthier Fatty Acid Compositionhttp://isurftech.technologypublisher.com/technology/19120Mon, 04 May 2015 06:51:32 GMTlicensing@iastate.eduhttp://isurftech.technologypublisher.com/technology/19120Facile and Cost Effective Preparation of Diverse Nanomaterialshttp://isurftech.technologypublisher.com/technology/19118Mon, 04 May 2015 06:51:31 GMTlicensing@iastate.eduhttp://isurftech.technologypublisher.com/technology/19118Microscope for Simultaneous Single Molecule AFM and Fluorescence Measurementshttp://isurftech.technologypublisher.com/technology/19117Mon, 04 May 2015 06:51:31 GMTlicensing@iastate.eduhttp://isurftech.technologypublisher.com/technology/19117Pneumatic Vibration Isolation Devicehttp://isurftech.technologypublisher.com/technology/19106 Summary: Researchers have developed a low cost pneumatic isolation device (LCPID) that can be used in conjunction with a vibration isolation platform technology to help reduce whole-body vibrations and their health consequences that workers may be subjected to when driving or operating equipment, trucks, or other vehicles.
