Chinese Researchers: A Virus Can Suppress the N-end Rule Pathway[Dec 14, 2017]

In a present study led by Prof. ZHOU Xi in Wuhan Institute of Virology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, the researchers report that the infection by a picorna-like virus can induce apoptosis in infected Drosophila cells, and the apoptotic pathway plays an antiviral role in Drosophila.

Researchers Realize Algal Biofuel Production Coupled Bioremediation of Biomass Power Plant Wastes Based on Chlorella Cultivation[Dec 13, 2017]

The Research Group of Algal Biochemistry at Institute of Hydrobiology of Chinese Academy of Sciences confirmed that ash and flue gas produced in biomass power plants can be used as free nutrients source for Chlorella cultivation coupled biofuel production. This study will be of great interests not only to scientists working on industrial wastes reutilization and low-cost biofuel production, but also to industrials with demands on environment-friendly industrial wastes bioremediation.

Scientists Find Superhydrophobic Smart Coating for Flexible and Wearable Sensing Electronics[Dec 13, 2017]

Recently, ZHANG Ting's group at the Suzhou Institute of Nano-Tech and Nano-Bionics of Chinese Academy of Sciences reported a novel superhydrophobic and piezoresistive coating with high flexibility and universal applicability to various substrate materials. The coatings not only endow various substrate materials with superhydrophobic surfaces, but can also respond to stretching, bending, and torsion—a property useful for flexible sensor applications.

Responses of Forest Ecosystems in Yunnan to Climate Change Observed[Dec 12, 2017]

Researchers from Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden (XTBG) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences chose four representative forest ecosystems (savanna, tropical, subtropical, and subalpine) to study the carbon exchanges and responses to climatic control in Yunnan.

New Mechanism to Explain How El Niño Influences East Asian and Western North Pacific Climate[Dec 11, 2017]

Researchers from the Institute of Atmospheric Physics (IAP) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and University of Hawaii proposed a new mechanism to explain the maintenance of WNPAC. The mechanism was named as "anomalous moist enthalpy advection mechanism". The research team applied this mechanism to explain why WNPAC forms in the late fall of El Nin?o developing phase.
