Scientists from the Institute of Vertebrate Paleontology and Paleoanthropology (IVPP) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences have recently discovered two fossil repositories in the early Silurian strata in southwestern Chongqing and Guizhou, which are rewriting the evolutionary story of "from fish to human".
Researchers from the Institute of Vertebrate Paleontology and Paleoanthropology have found evidence to support the hypothesis that dinosaurs were not very diverse before their extinction and had declined overall during the last part of the Cretaceous.
Evolutionary chromosomal changes may take a million years in nature, but researchers are now reporting a novel technique enabling programmable chromosome fusion that has successfully produced mice with genetic changes that occur on a million-year evolutionary scale in the laboratory. The result may provide critical insight into how rearrangements of chromosomes – the tidy packages of organized genes, provided in ...
The hybrid magnet at the Steady High Magnetic Field Facility (SHMFF) in Hefei, China set a world record for the highest steady magnetic field by a working magnet when it produced a steady field of 45.22 tesla (T) on Aug. 12. It broke the previous world record of 45 tesla set in 1999 by a hybrid magnet at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory of the United States.
On March 2, 2022, the Chinese Academy of Sciences released its strategic action plan to support scientific and technological efforts toward China's carbon peak and carbon neutrality goals.
Emma Lavaut and her colleagues from Sorbonne University and Universidad Austral de Chile found that a species of red seaweed uses the isopod crustacean <em>Idotea balthica</em> to transfer its male gametes for fertilization. Prof. Jeff Ollerton and Dr. REN Zongxin from the Kunming Institute of Botany concluded that the significantly expands the phylogenetic and temporal scope of animal-mediated male gamete moveme...
