Dodder Genome Sequencing Sheds Light on Evolution of Plant Parasitism[Jul 10, 2018]

To gain insight into the evolution of dodders, and provide important resources for studying the physiology and ecology of parasitic plants, the laboratory of Dr. WU Jianqiang from the Kunming Institute of Botany combined PacBio sequencing and Illumina transcriptome sequencing technology to obtain a high-quality genome of the dodder Cuscuta australis.

How Do Nanomaterials Affect Heavy Metals in Aquatic Environment?[Jul 11, 2018]

Nanomaterials could change both vertical distribution of heavy metals and their accumulation in creatures in water environment, according to a new study by XU An and her team in Hefei Institutes of Physical Science. XU's team used a model organism, a worm named Caenorhabditis elegans, to help them take a closer look at the combined toxicity of nanoparticles and heavy metals (namely cadmium (Cd), arsenate (As(III)), and nickel (Ni)).


ATLAS Experiment Observes VBF Higgs Production[Jul 10, 2018]

The ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider presented the latest results on Higgs physics at the International Conference of High Energy Physics in Seoul on July 9th, 2018. The results included the observation of the Higgs boson via Weak Boson Fusion (VBF) and other combined measurements of Higgs boson.

Dominant Decay Channel of Higgs Particle Observed at ATLAS[Jul 10, 2018]

The Higgs boson to the bottom quark decay process (H→bb), the most important decay channel of the Higgs particle was recently observed by the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider. The observation result was first released at the International Conference of High Energy Physics.


Intriguing Flexible Devices Based On Mechanoluminescence[Jul 10, 2018]

In the latest work, WANG Zhaofeng and his co-workers from Lanzhou Institute of Chemical Physics, Lanzhou University, and University of Connecticut reported an environmentally-friendly and novel oxide-based ML material, SAOE, serving as the alternative for the widely-used but environmentally-hazardous transition metal-doped sulfides.

Mixing Layer Height Evolution and Its Impacts on Regional Air Pollution in North China Plain Revealed[Jul 10, 2018]

Scientists from the Institute of Atmospheric Physics monitored the evolution of regional atmospheric mixing layer height (MLH) in the North China Plain. They found that the ceilometers could provide accurate observations of MLH in heavy haze pollution.
