Hong Kong Researchers Find Shortcut to Predict Brain Diseases' Drug Effectiveness[Mar 19, 2019]

A research team led by the City University of Hong Kong (CityU) has developed a new platform to enhance the prediction of effectiveness of medicines treating brain diseases. The result came after five years of collaboration between CityU's Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME) and Department of Biomedical Sciences (BMS), and Harvard Medical School, the United States, aiming to provide a platform to predict compounds that have the potential to be developed into new drugs to treat brain diseases.

China's Research Ship Departs for 54th Ocean Expedition in Pacific[Mar 19, 2019]

China launched its 54th ocean expedition on Monday to conduct research on the oceanic resources and environment in the Pacific. Major tasks include the exploration of polymetallic nodules and investigations on interactions between the global changes, oceans and the atmosphere.


7 Major Clades of Wild Chinese Giant Salamander Identified in China[Mar 18, 2019]

Chinese scientists identified seven major clades of critically-endangered wild Chinese giant salamander in China, with three clades inhabiting Hunan's Zhangjiajie, a major origin area of the world's existing largest amphibian. The paper depicts a relatively-intact distribution map of Chinese giant salamander's clades in natural species range and suggests that the release of giant salamanders back into the wild should match their genetic differences.

Research on Peach Evolution Provides Reference for Future Breeding[Mar 14, 2019]

Chinese scientists have studied the genetic basis of peach evolution, providing new resources for future genomics-guided peach breeding. The research provides a valuable resource for future peach improvement using novel breeding technologies and strategies, such as genomic selection and molecular design breeding.

China's Lunar Rover Expected to Work Beyond Design Life[Mar 14, 2019]

China's lunar rover Yutu-2, or Jade Rabbit-2, has driven 163 meters on the far side of the moon and is expected to work longer than its three-month design life. Both the rover and the lander of the Chang'e-4 lunar probe switched to a dormant mode on Wednesday as the extremely cold lunar night fell.

Chinese Scientists Develop Early Diagnosis of Liver Cancer for Hepatitis B Carriers[Mar 13, 2019]

Chinese scientists have designed a new screening method for hepatitis B carriers, to detect early-stage hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), the most common type of primary liver cancer. This method is expected to become a more convenient, non-invasive and standardized early screening program for liver cancer.
