Patents by Inventor Susan J. Johnson

Susan J. Johnson has filed for patents to protect the following inventions. This listing includes patent applications that are pending as well as patents that have already been granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

  • Publication number: 20210163977
    Abstract: The invention provides methods and compositions for identifying transgenic seed that contain a transgene of interest, but lack a marker gene. Use of an identification sequence that results in a detectable phenotype increases the efficiency of screening for seed and plants in which transgene sequences not linked to a gene of interest have segregated from the sequence encoding a gene of interest.
    Type: Application

  • Publication number: 20190376072
    Abstract: Methods of, and compositions for, assembling one or more transcription units in a genome without a linked selectable marker or other unwanted transcription unit are provided. Also provided methods of, and compositions for, assembling one or more transcription units in a genome with a reduced frequency of vector backbone.

  • Patent number: 5519603
    Abstract: An intelligent front-end communication system which is interposed between a plurality of actively redundant process control computers and a computer network. The intelligent front end communication system includes at least one front end computer which is coupled to the computer network, and a serial communication interface which is coupled between the actively redundant process control computers and the front end computer. The serial communication interface transmits sequential sets of dynamic data from the actively redundant process control computers to the front end computer. The front end computer includes a plurality of reflective or shadow memory buffers for storing and time aligning corresponding sets of dynamic data which are asynchronously received from the serial communication interface.
