A Broad-spectrum Biopesticide Strain with Plant Growth Promoting Capability
The Challenge Plant diseases can wipe out entire crops and historical plantings in a short period of time as shown by boxwood blight. Globally, these diseases pose increasing risks to food security and plant biosecurity. Current approaches to disease management depend largely on chemical protection. These approaches are not sustainable due to growing...

Burkholdines 1097 and 1229, Potent Antifungal Peptides from Burkholderia Ambifaria 2.2 N
Fungal pathogens are a continuing source of infection in both plants and animals. In fact, there are over 50,000 fungal plant diseases1 as well as over 300 million people affected from serious fungal infections globally.2 The widespread use of antifungal agents has resulted in increasing resistance in pathogens. Though synthetic treatments can be...

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 humans...

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 be...
