The coronavirus pandemic has thrust virologist Shi Zhengli into a fierce spotlight. Shi, who's been nicknamed "Bat Woman," heads a group that studies bat coronaviruses at the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV), in the city in China where the pandemic began, and many have speculated that the virus that causes COVID-19 accidentally escaped from her lab—a theory promoted by U.S. President Donald Trump. Some have even suggested it could have been engineered there.View More
Scientists from the Shenzhen Institutes of Advanced Technology adopted finite volume (FV)-LBM to simulate the thermal incompressible flow on unstructured grids, and proposed a parallel coupled cell-centered FV thermal lattice Boltzmann method, which has the potential to simulate flows in complicated domains.
A research team led by Dr. WANG Jiawei from CAS Center for Excellence in Molecular Plant Sciences of the Chinese Academy of Sciences revealed a hierarchical transcriptional regulatory network for somatic embryogenesis.
A research group led by Dr. LIU Hongtao from CAS Center for Excellence in Molecular Plant Sciences identified that two new proteins, named COR27 and COR28, act as key regulators in the COP1–HY5 regulatory hub by ensuring proper skotomorphogenic growth in the dark and photomorphogenic development in the light.
Researchers from the Shenzhen Institutes of Advanced Technology and National University of Singapore developed biomimetic nanoprobes for targeted imaging of brain tumors.
In a study published in the journal <EM>Science</EM>, researchers from the Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden of the Chinese Academy of Sciences showed that the alpine flora of the Hengduan Mountains has continuously existed far longer than any other alpine flora on the Earth.
Chinese researchers have developed an antimicrobial coating with effective protection lasting up to six months. The new coating was developed based on microcapsule technology. A microcapsule, a tiny capsule, contains materials such as drugs and flavors that are released when the capsule is broken, melted or dissolved.
The 500-meter Aperture Spherical Telescope, or FAST, China's mega science project and the world's largest single-dish radio observatory, has detected hundreds of pulsar candidates, of which 132 have been certified, People's Daily reported on August 5.
Chinese scientists said on Thursday that they have completed a comprehensive scientific expedition near Zhongsha Islands in the South China Sea. During the expedition project, which came to an end in late July, three research vessels were organized for missions including samplings for topographic, hydrodynamic, meteorological, chemical, ecological, and biological research in different water areas near the islands, according to the South China Sea Institute of Oceanology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
