Gene-edited Disease Monkeys Cloned in China[Jan 30, 2019]

The first cohort of five gene-edited monkey clones made from fibroblasts of a monkey with disease phenotypes were born recently at the Institute of Neuroscience in Shanghai. The study demonstrates that a population of customized gene-edited macaque monkeys with uniform genetic background will soon be available for biomedical research.

Scientists Enhance Sorption Ability of Biochars towards Galaxolide[Jan 30, 2019]

Prof. ZHANG Qianru and her colleagues from the Institute of Applied Ecology (IAE), used the excellent physical and chemical properties of ball-milled biochar to concentrate HHCB from aqueous solution onto the surface and pores of biochars by adsorption and hydrophobic partitioning. The sorption ability of the biochar prepared at high temperature was significantly enhanced by ball milling processing. For the low temperature biochars (300° C), ball milling only increases the external surface area.

How Does Manned Submersible Shenhai Yongshi Communicate with Its Mothership Robustly?[Jan 29, 2019]

A research team led by Prof. ZHU Min from the Institute of Acoustics proposed advanced signal processing schemes to overcome the deterioration of signal quality and developed a multi-service communication system between the submersible and the mothership in the shipborne mode.

Study Shows Flight Limitations of Earliest Feathered Dinosaurs[Jan 29, 2019]

Anchiornis, one of the earliest feathered dinosaurs ever discovered, was found to have the ability to fly. However, could it fly like birds today? A new study by researchers from China and the U.S. says no. They found that Anchiornis feathers were predominated by thicker α-keratins, however, the flight feathers of modern birds are mainly composed of thinner β-keratin.
