Scientists Develop Conducting Basalt Fibre[Sep 13, 2017]

Basalt fibre has various applications in the fields such as filtration, civil engineering, and fibre-reinforced polymers. A research group led by Prof. MA Pengcheng at Xinjiang Technical Institute of Physics and Chemistry of Chinese Academy of Sciences collaborating with scientist at the Leibniz Institute of Polymer Research Dresden in Germany utilized BF as a substrate to deposit/grow various carbon-based nanoparticles on fibre surface.


Floury3, a Newly Found Regulator for Maize Endosperm Development and Filling[Sep 13, 2017]

Highly abundant ribosomal proteins are required to achieve high-efficiency functioning of the protein translation machinery in the maize endosperm. Recently, Dr. WU Yongrui and his colleagues at Institute of Plant Physiology and Ecology of Chinese Academy of Sciences reported a maize classic endosperm-specific mutant floury3 (fl3) through genetic cloning and functional characterization.
