China-made Brain Pacemaker Brings Hope to Parkinson's Patients[Apr 12, 2018]

Nearly 10,000 Chinese patients have received deep brain stimulation surgery since the first China-made brain pacemaker was implanted in a patient's brain in November 2009. The China-made brain pacemakers have also been introduced to other countries such as Pakistan, Bangladesh and Indonesia to bring hope to patients there.

Shanghai Scientists Pioneer New Data Storage Tech[Apr 11, 2018]

Shanghai scientists have invented the world's groundbreaking third type of storage technology with two-dimensional semiconductors, solving the problem of acquiring both data writing speed and nonvolatile memories in semiconducting storage. This new storage technology may largely reduce the power consumption of storage for supercomputers and allow data stored in the disks to be valid for only a certain period of time before disappearing, said researchers from the Shanghai-based Fudan University.

China Launches Yaogan-31 Remote Sensing Satellites[Apr 11, 2018]

The first group of China's Yaogan-31 remote sensing satellites were sent into space on Tuesday at 12:25 p.m. Beijing time from Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center in northwestern China. The satellites were carried by a Long March-4C rocket, the 271st mission for the Long March rocket family. The mission also sent a micro nano technology experiment satellite into orbit.

Chinese Scientists Complete Full Genome Sequencing of Peruvian Scallop[Apr 09, 2018]

Chinese scientists have completed the world's first whole genome sequencing of the Peruvian scallop, an economically important bivalve in Chile, Peru and China. It was the third scallop genome sequence map in the world after the Japanese and Zhikong scallops. The researchers finished the genome sequencing, assembly and annotation of the Peruvian scallop. A total of 26,256 protein-coding genes and 3,057 non-coding RNAs were predicted from the genome assembly.
