Scientists Develop Novel in vitro Pathogen Detection System[Nov 10, 2016]

Nowadays, the fast and reliable in vitro detection of featured nucleic acid sequences is urgently demanded in health care, as well as in food and environmental safety monitoring. Prof. LOU Chunbo's group at the Institute of Microbiology of Chinese Academy of Sciences (IMCAS), together with the Peking iGEM team, developed a novel paired dCas9 reporter system. As a proof of concept, they successfully distinguished Mtb genome markers, thus established a universal pathogen detection system, providing new approaches for the development of in vitro nuclear acid detection.

Yesterday's Silk Road Could Be Tomorrow's Environmental Superhighway[Nov 10, 2016]

Researchers from the Center for Systems Integration and Sustainability (CSIS), Institute of Urban Environment in China and the United States use the new integrated telecoupling framework, which allows scientists to understand and govern the interconnections of socioeconomic and environmental issues that span the globe. That would allow factoring the changes that ripple across the lands, accounting for what otherwise might be unforeseen and unintended consequences.

Research Reveal Seasonal Drought Inhibits Growth of Seedlings in Xishuangbanna[Nov 10, 2016]

Prof. CAO Min and his team of Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden of the Chinese Academy of Sciences investigated the seasonal dynamics of tree seedlings along a mountain transect of the tropical forests in Xishuangbanna. Their aim was to examine the response of tree seedlings in forests on mountains to elevation and monsoon rhymes.
