Researchers Identify Microbial Taxonomic and Functional Structure Patterns in Chinese Alpine Grasslands[Mar 25, 2019]

Dr. WANG Xiaobo, a researcher of Institute of Applied Ecology, together with colleagues, has investigated the taxonomic and functional diversity patterns of soil microbial communities and drivers that shaping these patterns in alpine grasslands of northern China, using the method of marker genes sequencing and functional gene surveys.

Scientists Quantify Role of Oceanic Feedbacks on ENSO Asymmetry[Mar 25, 2019]

To uncover the causes of low-frequency variability and asymmetry of ENSO cycle, scientists from the Institute of Oceanology built a complete set of temperature variance equation, which is able to determine whether a single oceanic dynamic process is a positive or negative feedback and make it possible to access its contribution quantificationally.

How Does SAW Gas Sensors Response in Real Time?[Mar 22, 2019]

Researchers from the Institute of Acoustics established a simulation model to describe the real-time response mechanism of the SAW gas sensors. The real-time model would help to visually analyze the factors affecting the sensor response and optimize the sensor parameters.

SHMFF Users Discover Extraordinary Superconductivity of NbTi Nanowire[Mar 22, 2019]

High Magnetic Field Facility (SHMFF) users achieved extraordinary superconductivity in the investigation of NbTi nanowires under extreme conditions of combining high magnetic field, high pressure and low temperature. SUN Liling and her colleagues with Institute of Physics conducted a research on SHMFF to investigate the superconducting properties of NbTi nanowire under the extreme conditions provided by the user facility.

Scientists Realize Atmospheric Sensing Using A Mid-infrared Laser Heterodyne Radiometer Near 3.53μm[Mar 22, 2019]

A Chinese research group at Anhui Institute of Optics and Fine Mechanics (AIOFM), Hefei Institutes of Physical Science developed an interband cascade laser based laser heterodyne radiometer (IC-LHR) for atmospheric sensing in ground-based solar occultation mode. This radiometer has a high potential for the development of compact, robust and unattended instrument for spacecraft, airborne or ground-based atmospheric sensing.

hESC-CVPCs Repair Infarcted Hearts Through Modulation of Macrophages via Activation of STAT6[Mar 22, 2019]

Researchers from Shanghai Institute of Nutrition and Health investigated whether Human Embryonic Stem Cell-Derived Cardiovascular Progenitor Cells (hESC-CVPCs) delivery into acutely infarcted hearts repairs damaged hearts through modulation of macrophage subpopulations. The findings revealed previously unrecognized immunoregulatory roles of hESC-CVPCs on the macrophage polarization in the infarcted hearts, its importance for the infarct repair, and the underlying signaling pathway.
