Genetic Enhancement for Plant Insect Resistance


Clemson University researchers have identified a soybean cysteine protease inhibitor gene shown to enhance plant pest and disease resistance. Use of this inhibitor gene would result in better crop yield and quality.

Software Platform that Enables Large Scale Brain Wave Data Collaboration

Biomedical, Biotechnology

Clemson University and Medical University of South Carolina researchers designed EEGnet. The software effectively allows researchers from across the country to view and collaborate with large scale brain wave data. EEGnet has the potential to dramatically change the research and application of EEG data by providing standardized data needed to validate new algorithms to diagnose epilepsy and similar disorders.

Marine Antifouling Peptide to Prevent Biofouling

Biotechnology, Sustainable Environment

This synthetic conopeptide analog, named Miata57, to the noradrenaline (NA) molecule enables antifouling action. This analog could potentially be manufactured and incorporated into commercial epoxy based paints and coatings to deter fouling marine invertebrates from settling, thus preventing biofouling.
