In a recent study, researchers from Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden (XTBG) showed that complementary relationship for water interaction between preferential flow domain (PFD, matching the root zone) and non-preferential flow domain (NPFD, matching the remote root zone) could be beneficial for rubber plants growth and development.
Recently, the research team led by Prof. ZHOU Jianging from University of Science and Technology of China found that prefrontal corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF) neurons are recruited during behavioural challenges, and manipulation of CRF neurons motivates the selection of behavioural styles under challenges. They also demonstrated that activation of CRF neurons promotes persistent stress-resistant behaviours.
A recent study published in Nature has reported two conserved epigenetic regulators as novel anti-aging targets. The research, by scientists from Dr. CAI Shiqing's Lab at the Center for Excellence in Brain Science and Intelligence Technology, Institute of Neuroscience of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), and Dr. JIANG Lubing's team at Institut Pasteur of Shanghai of CAS, identified conserved negative regulators of healthy aging by using multiple modalities and systems, thus providing insights into how to achieve healthy aging.
For the first time, a MRI machine learning-based ovarian cancer diagnosis model has developed to non-invasively identify MEOT and BEOT before surgery by GAO Xin's research team at the Suzhou Institute of Biomedical Engineering and Technology in collaboration with JIN Weiqiang from Jinshan Hospital of Fudan University, and other eight 3A hospitals spead across different regions in China.
When checking the vine garden plant resources in the Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden (XTBG), researchers found an unknown species of Salacia. It was originally collected from Xiajinchang, Malipo County, Yunnan Province, SW China.
In order to evaluate the heavy metals in contaminated food, the bioavailability of metals must be measured. Researchers from South China Botanical Garden conducted both in vitro bioaccessibility (using four methods) and in vivo bioavailability (using a mouse model) of Cd from six kinds of rice.
