Researchers Map and Estimate Species-Level Biomass in Chinese Boreal Forests[May 04, 2018]

Researchers from the Institute of Applied Ecology (IAE), Chinese Academy of Sciences, mapped and estimated species-level biomass (species composition and aboveground biomass) in Chinese boreal forests (the Great Xing’an Mountains) by integrating MODIS imagery with forest inventory data using k nearest neighbor (kNN) method.

Human Neutralizing Antibody Protects against Zika Virus in Mouse Models[May 04, 2018]

Dr. XU Zhiheng's group from the Institute of Genetics and Developmental Biology, collaborated with Dr. ZHANG Linqi's group from Tsinghua University, found that a single injection of human neutralizing antibody protects against Zika virus infection and microcephaly in the developing mouse embryos.

Biosynthetic Technology for High-value Chemicals from Xylose Developed[May 04, 2018]

A research team led by Prof. ZHAO Guang from Qingdao Institute of Bioenergy and Bioprocess Technology achieved the high-value chemicals of glycolate and ethylene glycol from xylose in Escherichia coli. These findings will enrich the range of products from xylose, increase the xylose conversion efficiency, and lay foundation for the industrial application of bio-refinery of xylose.

Charge-Carrier Dynamics Determine Perovskite Photovoltaics[May 04, 2018]

The charge-carrier dynamics of the cell in a wide time span (from ultrafast to ultraslow) and essential dynamics behaviors are discussed and presented by MENG Qingbo's group from Institute of Physics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. They provided a comprehensive understanding into the optoelectronic physics of perovskite PV.

Researchers Uncover the Antibiotics and Antibiotic Resistance Genes in Global Lakes[May 04, 2018]

Researchers from the Chinese Academy of Sciences and Zhejiang Academy of Agricultural Sciences worked together to collate the occurrence, distribution and risk of antibiotics and ARGs in global lakes. The meta-analysis showed that seven antibiotics were found at high concentrations in both lake water and lake sediment.

Influence of Aquatic Plants on Long Chain n-alkanes in Lake Sediments[May 03, 2018]

The hydrogen isotopic composition (δD) of leaf wax long-chain n-alkanes from lacustrine sediments has been widely applied to reconstruct terrestrial paleoclimatic and paleohydrological changes. However, few studies have addressed whether the aquatic-derived n-alkanes can affect the δD values of lake sedimentary long-chain n-alkanes, which are usually regarded as a recorder of the terrestrial hydrological signals.
