Chinese Scientists Create 4 Synthetic Yeast Chromosomes[Mar 10, 2017]
Chinese scientists have assembled four synthetic yeast chromosomes, making China the second country capable of designing and building eukaryotic genomes. In the study, researchers with Tianjin University, Tsinghua University and BGI-Shenzhen construct the synthetic active chromosomes through exactly matching the synthetic genome with the designed sequence for the first time.
Chinese scientists are researching the new material graphene to produce a smart wearable device to enable those with hearing and speaking disability to listen and speak normally. Researchers at the Institute of Microelectronics of Tsinghua University took full advantage of graphene's special characteristics, such as excellent electric and thermal conductivity.
Chinese Manned Sub Targets Ocean's Deepest Point[Mar 10, 2017]
China is developing a manned submersible capable of reaching the deepest known point in the world's oceans. The known deepest part of the ocean is the Challenger Deep at a depth of around 11,000 meters in the Mariana Trench. Submersibles capable of reaching that depth will offer new hopes of setting up deep-sea labs, where scientists can conduct biological, medical and genetic research and explore mineral, oil and gas resources.
China Eyes Next-generation Manned Spacecraft[Mar 09, 2017]
China hopes to lead the world in space technology by developing the next-generation manned spacecraft. China's next-generation spacecraft is reusable, with a much higher capacity than other foreign spacecraft. It can hold up to six crew members in low-earth orbit and three or four for a moon landing mission.
