Tracheo-bronchial Sampling Device
Summary: ISU researchers have developed an effective sampling device to collect tracheo-bronchial mucus from pigs to be used for PCR detection of pathogens such as Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae.Description: Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae is a bacterium that causes porcine enzootic pneumonia, a highly contagious pneumonia in pigs which can lead to significant ...

Gene controlling spontaneous haploid genome doubling in maize
Summary: ISU researchers identified a maize chromosomal region and markers associated with the ability of haploid plants to spontaneously double their genome, and thus become DH/inbred lines. Genome doubling without particular treatment, greenhouse cultivation and transplanting can substantially reduce the costs of DH line production. The chromosom...

Spontaneous Haploid Genome Doubling Maize Donor Line
Summary: ISU researchers have bred donor maize lines with increased propensity to spontaneously double their haploid genomes, and thus become doubled haploid (DH)/inbred lines. This finding open a path to reduce the costs associated with DH maize production. The donor lines of this invention and associated DNA markers of ISURF invention disclosure...

Mutants Affecting Flowering Time in Maize
Summary: Iowa State University researchers discovered two maize genes that affect flowering time, and recommend using genome editing to develop homozygous mutants of these genes. This will help adapt elite germplasm to regions with different maturity zones.Description: Crop Breeding companies maintain separate maize breeding programs for different ...

An effective treatment to prevent freeze induced egg yolk gelation
Summary: ISU researchers have developed a method for inhibiting gelation of egg yolk upon freezing. Description: Egg yolks are frozen for increased storage duration and ease of shipping. Nationally, 30% of broken egg’s yolks are frozen. However, untreated egg yolks gel (irreversible alteration in fluidity) on freezing, causing a significant ...

Isomerization of Muconic Acid for the Production of Bio-based Terephthalic Acid
Summary: Iowa State University researchers have developed a cost-effective method to isomerize cis-, cis- and cis-, trans- muconic acid to trans-, trans- muconic acid, which readily combines with acetylene via Diels-Alder reaction to create terepthalic acid. Description: Polyethylene-terephthalate (PET) is one of the most abundantly-used thermop...
