Chinese Scientists Find New Method to Induce Stem Cells[Apr 09, 2018]

Chinese scientists have made a breakthrough in creating stem cells with a cocktail of two chemicals that can induce mature somatic cells to turn back into pluripotent stem cells. The study by scientists from the Guangzhou Institutes of Biomedicine and Health will help understanding of the fate of cells and could be applied to regenerative medicine, said lead researcher Pei Duanqing.

Chinese Scientists Find Key Factor Activating Genome Expression in Human Embryos[Mar 09, 2018]

Chinese scientists have identified the crucial factor that activates gene expression in human embryos, bringing them a step closer to explaining the mystery of human development at a very early embryonic stage, according to a paper published on the website of the scientific journal, Cell.

Top Achievements Propel CAS in 2017[Feb 05, 2018]

We present a wrap-up of CAS's 12 most impressive achievements of 2017, ranging from the Tibetan Plateau to the depths of the sea and earth as well as outer space. We connect the continents via quantum communication, discovered pulsars using the world's biggest radio telescope, transformed coal into ethanol, and observed three-component fermions in the topological semimetal molybdenum phosphide. CAS's outstanding achievements reflect its firm position on the leading edge of world science.

Meet Zhong Zhong and Hua Hua, the First Monkey Clones Produced by Method that Made Dolly[Jan 25, 2018]

The first primate clones made by somatic cell nuclear transfer are two genetically tailed macaques born recently at the Institute of Neuroscience of Chinese Academy of Sciences in Shanghai. Researchers named the newborns Zhong Zhong and Hua Hua, which means Chinese nation or people. The technical milestone, makes it a realistic possibility for labs to conduct research with customizable populations of genetically uniform monkeys.

Real-world Intercontinental Quantum Communications Enabled by Micius Satellite[Jan 20, 2018]

A joint China-Austria team has performed quantum key distribution between multiple ground stations located in Xinglong, Nanshan, and Graz. Such experiments demonstrate the secure satellite-to-ground exchange of cryptographic keys with ~kHz rate during the passage of the satellite Micius over a ground station. Using Micius as a trusted relay, a secret key is created between China and Europe at locations separated up to 7600 km on the Earth.

First Finding of China's DAMPE May Shed Light on Dark Matter Research[Nov 30, 2017]

The DArk Matter Particle Explorer mission presented the precise measurement of cosmic ray electron flux, especially a spectral break at ~0.9 TeV. The data may shed light on the annihilation or decay of particle dark matter.
