Novel Methylerythritol Phosphate Pathway Inhibitors
The apicoplast is essential to the malaria parasite and its main function during asexual blood stages is to provide the isoprenoid precursor isopentenyl diphosphate (MEP) pathway. Without IPP, the parasite cannot synthesize isoprenoids; this IPP deficit is cytocidal and may also reduce the ability of the parasite to invade host cells. Since human...

Fungal Biocontrol of Invasive Noxious Poison Ivy
Poison ivy is a noxious native plant species that when touched by humans causes a delayed contact dermatitis resulting in a swollen, blistering, painful, oozing, and itching skin rash. Poison ivy is a frequent wild volunteer plant in managed landscapes and gardens. Although there are synthetic chemical control measures for killing poison ivy (i.e....

Protective Coating Process for Biological Agents
The process that we are describing provides for coating biological control agents such as entomopathogenic spores in a closely controlled environment. It is designed to minimize the potential detrimental effects of hydration and dehydration of the agents which may reduce their field use efficacy and storage shelf life. The process should prove to b...

Titan Peanut (VT 9506083-3)
From 1995 to 2002, the U.S. federal support price for peanuts decreased 47% forcing farmers to grow other crops and reducing peanut acreage in Virginia from more than 100,000 ha in 1995 to 12,000 ha in 2010. One way farmers maintain profitability is to grow Virginia-type peanuts which receive a premium for super-extra-large kernels, extra-large ker...
