Vip3-Resistant Helicoverpa Zea
This technology is a genetically diverse strain of corn earworm that has been selected over multi-generations to be resistant to Vip3 (a Bt protein produced by transgenic crops). It is a tool used for screening/selecting candidate proteins to determine if they overcome resistance. Background: A rapidly expanding global population, coupled with limited...

Grasshopper Harvester
Killing two birds with one stone is a common way to describe one solution that takes care of two problems. This invention kills three. The destruction of grassland and crops via locusts and other grasshoppers; The ever-increasing need for protein creation and human consumption; and Farmer’s need to feed their livestock with protein-rich food. This...

Disrupting Mosquito Eggshell Formation by Targeting A Highly Diverged Biological Pathway
This technology is a new method to control mosquito populations by disrupting mosquito-specific proteins important for embryonic development. Based on a bioinformatics study, a mosquito-specific regulatory protein, Eggshell Organizing Factor 1 (EOF1), was discovered, which is highly diverged from other species. EOF1 controls the synthesis of eggshell...

TomCats (Tomato Caterpillars)
This invention is the production of protein-rich caterpillars. Background: Population growth and increasing standards of living require significantly greater food production. Animal protein sources demand high-intensity uses of land, water, and energy. In many cultures insects are traditionally served as an alternative protein source. These sustainably...

Rearing Mealworms on Beer and Vegetable Waste in a Self-Contained System
This invention is a sustainable and waste-free system for farming mealworms as a protein source for human consumption. Background: Environmental efforts have created a demand for an alternative protein source for human consumption. Beef, pork, and chicken protein produce a significant amount of greenhouse gas, there is a need for a complete protein...

Passive, Solar, Large-Scale Drying System For Agricultural Waste
This invention is a large-scale passive solar system for drying large quantities of agricultural waste. Background: Environmental efforts have created a demand for an alternative protein source for human consumption. As beef, pork, and chicken protein produces a significant amount of greenhouse gas, there is a need for a complete protein source...

Sustainable Protein Source with Zero Waste
This invention uses waste streams to produce protein-rich foods. Background: Global population and standards of living continue to increase. This strains available resources, particularly with regard to costs of food production. Animal products require high amounts of land, water, and energy use. However, alternative production methods can provide...
