Chinese Scientists Aim for World's Most Detailed 3D Map of Human Brain[Dec 07, 2018]

We can observe billions of stars and detect ripples in space, but we still barely understand our brains, which can fathom the universe. Now Chinese scientists are planning to draw the clearest yet three-dimensional map of the intricate neurons and blood vessels in the human brain. This ambitious project is like taking 3D photos of a huge forest of nearly 100 billion trees, seeing not only the whole forest, but also every twig and leaf on each tree.

Researchers Develop DNA Sequencing-based Method to Detect Brain Tumor[Dec 06, 2018]

A Chinese-led research team has made a breakthrough in the detection of brain tumors by using sequencing of patients' tumor-deprived DNA. They found that sequencing of circulating tumor DNA, or tumor-derived genes, from the brain fluid, could help gain tumor genetic information and track tumor progression.
