Expansion of Transposable Elements Offers Clue to Genetic Paradox[Mar 18, 2019]

A research group led by Prof. GUO Yalong from the Institute of Botany of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (IBCAS), together with SONG Ge, and Sureshkumar Balasubramanian from the School of Biological Sciences, Monash University, Australia, has revealed that transposable element (TE) insertions could potentially help species with limited genetic variation adapt to novel environments.

Researchers Explore Water Use Patterns of Riparian Plants in Xishuangbanna[Mar 18, 2019]

Researchers from Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden (XTBG) used isotopic data of hydrogen (δD) and oxygen (δ18O) to explore the spatial and seasonal variation in water use pattern of riparian vegetation. They also used the MixSIAR model (Bayesian mixing model) to determine the contribution of different water sources of riparian plants.
