Nuclear Marker ITS Is Efficient for Identifying Species and Genera of Lauraceae[Apr 26, 2017]

Prof. LI Jie and his team from Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden (XTBG) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences used existing molecular barcodes: three cpDNA regions (rbcL, matK, psbA–trnH) and the nuclear marker ITS (ITS1+5.8S+ITS2), as well as the subunit ITS2, to examine the taxonomic classification and phylogeny of Lauraceae.

The Fourth Crystallographic Closest Packing in the Gold Nanocluster Crystal Found in ISSP[Apr 26, 2017]

Very recently, Chinese researchers found a crystallographic closest packing-6H left-handed helical arrangement, which represents a novel crystallographic closest packing since the report of the third one (4H arrangement) that found in bulk Ag in 1979 (the first two are well-known fcc and hcp arrangement).

New Magic: Maple Could Turn Red All Seasons[Apr 26, 2017]

Now, WU Lifang's team from Institute of Technical Biology & Agriculture Engineering, Hefei institutes of Physical Science, Chinese Academy of Sciences, announced they could present this magic by a new invention that they called "Red painter". And their technology is in its application for the Chinese patent.


Unique Features of mRNA Quality Control Pathway Uncovered in Ciliated Protozoa[Apr 26, 2017]

Nonsense-mediated mRNA decay (NMD) is an important mRNA quality control pathway that ensures efficient degradation of transcript with premature termination codons (PTC). Researchers from Dr. MIAO Wei's lab at Institute of Hydrobiology of Chinese Academy of Sciences, made the first attempt to take the advantage of transcriptome sequencing and mass spectrometry-based proteomics to uncover the unique and conserved aspects of NMD pathway in ciliated protozoan Tetrahymena thermophila.

USTC Draws Precise Picture on Metal-Support Interaction in Hydrogen Generation[Apr 25, 2017]

Prof. ZENG Jie's group from the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) has achieved a quantitative profile for exploring metal-support interactions by considering the highest occupied state in single-atom catalysts. This breakthrough realizes a guideline of generating hydrogen with efficient and inexpensive catalysts by controlling the band structures of the catalysts.
