A growing worldwide demand for gold nanoparticles in the glass technology, pharmaceuticals, photometry, and electronics industries, is driving the need for a sustainable, eco-friendly, and commercially practical method for fabricating gold nanoparticles exponentially. The investigators have developed a novel method to manufacture gold nanoparticles by using suspended plant cells in culture. In addition, they have […]

Properly applied, Controlled Environment Agriculture can provide protection and maintain optimal growing conditions throughout the development and distribution of a cannabis or other specialty crop. CEA optimizes use of resources such as water, energy, space, capital, and labor, reducing expense and enhancing crop yields while minimizing environmental impacts. This novel system is adaptable to a […]

LICENSED:  Yeast stain GY7B is a novel, lactic-acid producing yeast capable of acidifying beer to pH3.5 in as little as five days with final attenuation at 2-3 weeks. Typical sour beer production relies upon secondary fermentation with bacteria to develop a complex sour beer flavor profile which can take months or years to fully develop.
