Chinese Researchers Make Breakthrough in Avoiding a Common Aviation Risk[Apr 29, 2016]

After years of hard work, a research team led by Professor Li Yulong from China's Northwestern Polytechnical University has made a breakthrough in solving the problem of bird-plane collisions. The new technique already obtained a U.S. patent in 2015, and will soon get one from France as well. In addition, the technique has been applied to many military and civil aircraft, always to superb effect. Included in these aircraft is China's domestically produced C919 plane.

Experiments Envision HIV Immunity[Apr 28, 2016]

Researchers from the Third Affiliated Hospital of Guangzhou Medical University used a gene editing technique named CRISPR/Cas to attempt to replace the CCR5 gene in 26 human embryos. The researchers tried to give the embryos the HIV-resistant mutation. Four embryos were successfully edited, while the other 22 cases failed to produce the desired results.
