  • Patent number: 10390535
    Abstract: Compositions are provided that include a new Bacillus thuringiensis strain designated RTI545 for use in benefiting plant growth and controlling plant pests. In particular, the RTI545 strain is useful for controlling plant nematode, insect and fungal pests. The compositions include plant seeds coated with the RTI545 strain. The compositions can be applied alone or in combination with other microbial, biological, or chemical insecticides, fungicides, nematicides, bacteriocides, herbicides, plant extracts, plant growth regulators, or fertilizers. In one example, enhanced growth and insect control are provided by delivering at the time of planting a combination of a chemical insecticide such as bifenthrin and a liquid fertilizer to plants or seeds treated with RTI545.

  • Publication number: 20160183533
    Abstract: Compositions are provided that are planting matrices containing spores of Bacillus spp. microorganisms for benefiting plant growth. The Bacillus spp. microorganisms include newly identified Bacillus licheniformis strain RTI184 deposited as ATCC No. PTA-121722 and Bacillus licheniformis CH200 deposited as Accession No. DSM 17236. Both Bacillus licheniformis strains were shown to produce previously unreported Fengycin-like and Dehydroxyfengycin-like cyclic lipopeptides that are not produced uniformly among strains of Bacillus licheniformis. The planting matrices provided include potting soils. The pH of the potting soils can range between 4 to 8. The growth benefit provided by the planting matrices can be exhibited by improved seedling vigor, improved root development, improved plant growth, improved plant health, increased yield, and improved plant appearance.

  • Patent number: 8729012
    Abstract: The invention relates to the use of peptides, proteins, and other oligomers to provide a means by which normally quenched nanoparticle fluorescence may be recovered upon detection of a target molecule. Further, the inventive technology provides a structure and method to carry out detection of target molecules without the need to label the target molecules before detection. In another aspect, a method for forming arbitrarily shaped two- and three-dimensional protein-mediated nanoparticle structures and the resulting structures are described. Proteins mediating structure formation may themselves be functionalized with a variety of useful moieties, including catalytic functional groups.
