Researchers led by Prof. ZHANG Zhibin from the Institute of Zoology recently found that rodents could mediate mutualism and antagonism among sympatric tree species via seed rain, which supported the seed-rain synchrony hypothesis.
Researchers from Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden (XTBG) used the Elements of Metacommunity Structure (EMS, combining coherence, range turnover and range boundary clumping) to identify and describe patterns of fungal metacommunity structure.
A study led by Prof. YANG Yungui and Prof. REN Jie from Beijing Institute of Genomics and Prof. SUN Qianwen from Tsinghua University presented the first evidence that, indeed, one RNA modification, m<SUP>6</SUP>A promotes R-loop formation. They found that such modification constitutes a critical step in the dynamic regulation of R-loop at the termination stage of transcription, to prevent the read-through activity...
A team of researchers from the Institute of Subtropical Agriculture investigated the major natural and anthropogenic determinants of riverine P in one forest and ten agricultural catchments in subtropical China during 2011 to 2017. They found that landscape and livestock planning could effectively improve water quality.
Dr. LANG Jingyu's team at the Shanghai Institute of Nutrition and Health identified that thymidylate synthase was crucial for maintaining the survival of gastrointestinal cancer cells through genome-wide CRISPR-Cas9 knockout (GeCKO) screening, which could be selectively inhibited TYMS inhibitors like RTX.
A research team led by LIU Lianqing and JIAO Niandong at Shenyang Institute of Automation has proposed a new method to operate and assemble microstructures using bubble microrobots. This method is promising for the fabrication of more complex 3D tissues which can be useful for tissue transplantation, regenerative medicine, and biological research.
