A team of Chinese scientists recently developed a dual-plasmid editing system for accurately processing digital information in a microbial vector. The researchers established a dual-plasmid system in vivo using a rationally designed coding algorithm and an information editing tool. This dual-plasmid system is suitable for storing, reading and rewriting various types of information, including text, codebooks and images. It fully explores the coding capability of DNA sequences without requiring any addressing indices or backup sequences.
Researchers led by CHENG Zhen and CHEN Hao from the Shanghai Institute of Materia Medica of the Chinese Academy of Sciences reported a novel water-soluble NIR-II dye, FT-TQT, for versatile biomedical imaging applications, which is based on a new electron acceptor, 6,7-di(thiophen-2-yl)-[1,2,5] thiadiazolo[3,4-g] quinoxaline (TQT).
The group led by Prof. YOU Jingbi from the Institute of Semiconductors of the Chinese Academy of Sciences achieved 25.6% certificated efficiency of PSCs with good stability by using (PbI2)2RbCl to stabilize the perovskite layer.
A research team led by Prof. WU Yuejin from the Hefei Institutes of Physical Science (HFIPS) has revealed the source of internal mildew in sunflower seeds for the first time and proposed measures to avoid internal mildewing growth and entry of into the food chain.
A research group led by Prof. ZHOU Yongjin from the Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics has engineered yeast Ogataea polymorpha for efficient productions of free fatty acids from sole methanol by rewiring cellular metabolism and relieving the methanol toxicity.
A research group led by Prof. LIU Shengzhong from the Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics has fabricated high-performance large-area perovskite submodules.
