Study Finds Stem Cells, Gene Regulating Key Process in Female Reproduction[Jun 05, 2019]

An international study has identified stem cells and a gene that is responsible for menstruation. The uterus sheds and regenerates the tissue lining its walls, preparing for a pregnancy or the next cycle. Researchers from Yale University in the United States, Central South University in China and other research institutions studied the related mechanism in mice.

Chinese Scientists Complete Whole Genome Sequencing of Ancient Wheat Seeds[Jun 04, 2019]

Chinese scientists have sequenced the whole genome of 3,800-year-old wheat seeds unearthed from Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, decoding the food crop's spreading route into China. The research provided detailed information on the origin, dispersal and genetic improvement for the cultivation of present-day wheat.

China-Germany Sci-Tech Cooperation to Bring More Opportunities[Jun 03, 2019]

Science and technology (S&T) cooperation has been a highlight of ties between China and Germany, and is expected to bring more opportunities to both sides. Over 700 intergovernmental research and development programs, couples of joint labs and research centers, among others, have been supported since the mechanism was established in 1978.
