Climate Change Matters: Cotton Bollworm Rampant with Less Late Spring Cold Occurrences[Aug 14, 2018]

Climate change may favour destructive agricultural pest and bring harm to crops in temperate regions, a recent study by scientists from Xinjiang Institute of Ecology and Geography showed. Using model simulations, XIEG researcher LIU Zhaozhi and his group explored the relationships between LSC parameters and moth population dynamics.

Study: RNA Interference by Tobacco Mosaic Virus[Aug 14, 2018]

RNA interference (RNAi) provides a promising strategy for treating hereditary disease, cancer, HIV-1 and so on. Recently, inspired by the high efficiency of viruses and the safety of non-viruses, a 1D rod-like gene delivery vector based on tobacco mosaic virus (TMV) was reported by TIAN Ye and NIU Zhongwei's group from Technical Institute of Physics and Chemistry.

Superconductivity Above 10 K in a Novel Quasi-one-dimensional Compound[Aug 14, 2018]

In the past century, superconductivity has been observed in thousands of substances with multifarious chemical compositions and crystal structures; however, researchers have still not found an explicit method for discovering new superconductors. For the unconventional high-Tc superconductors of cuprates and iron pnictides/chalcogenides, the occurrence of superconductivity is highly related to the existence of some certain quasi-two-dimensional structural motifs.

Populations from Southern Region More Sensitive to Global Warming, a Cold-water Fish Case Study Shows[Aug 14, 2018]

Recently, researchers from Institute of Hydrobiology of Chinese Academy of Sciences investigated the regional differences in thermal adaptation of a cold-water fish Rhynchocypris oxycephalus, and found that populations from southern region are more sensitive to global warming.

Scientists Find Impact of Global Oceanic Warming on Winter Eurasian Climate[Aug 14, 2018]

PhD student HAO Xin from the Institute of Atmospheric Physics, along with her coauthors, carried out a study focusing on the contribution of global oceanic warming to winter Eurasian climate change, using a series of model simulations. Their results suggest there are warmer winters in Europe and the northern part of East Asia.

Highest Accuracy of Heisenberg-scaling Precision Measurement Achieved[Aug 10, 2018]

Recently, researchers from University of Science and Technology of China of Chinese Academy of Sciences and Nanjing University optimized the method of quantum weak measurement, which improves the measurement accuracy of single photon Kerr effect by an order of magnitude, and first approached the optimal Heisenberg limit.
