China Readies Regional Data Center for SKA Super Telescope

Construction of the Square Kilometer Array (SKA), the world's largest astronomical device, is expected to start next year, and China, one of the founding members, is preparing to build a regional data center and developing its reflector antennas. SKA will combine signals received via thousands of small antennas spreading over 3,000 km to simulate a single giant radio telescope with a total collecting area of approximately one square kilometer and capable of extremely high sensitivity and angular resolution.

    A research group led by Prof. LE Jie at the Institute of Botany found a genetic suppressor of flp stomatal defects. They found that RPA2a, a core subunit of Replication Protein A (RPA) complexes, acted downstream from the core cell cycle genes of CDKB1 to ensure terminal division during stomatal development and the formation of paired guard cells to create functional stomata units.

    Researchers from the Institute of Acoustics proposed an attention model which could process network traffic flow with adjustable length to detect payload-based attacks. Furthermore, they designed a Flow-WGAN (Wasserstein Generative Adversarial Networks) model to generate new network traffic data from the original data sets to enhance network packet data and protect users' privacy.
