This technology involves the use of non-phytopathogenic isolates of the fungal species Cladosporium sphaerospermum to rapidly promote plant growth, early flowering and increased crop productivity. All of these can be achieved by a short duration exposure of seedlings to the volatiles emitted by the fungus.

A vaccine against avian coccidiosis has been developed that utilizes recombinant DNA technology and nanoparticles to stimulate an immune response in newly-hatched chickens against the causative agent Eimeria maxima. The recombinant protein, called EmaxIMP1is purified and then conjugated to extremely small nanoparticles (20 nm in diameter) and orally given to newly-hatched chickens. This vaccine confers solid immunity against a challenge infection with the parasite Eimeria maxima.
