Scientists Demonstrate Quantum Behavior of Relativistic Electrons in Strong Laser Field[Aug 22, 2019]

A research team from the Shanghai Institute of Optics and Fine Mechanics proposed a cross-collision scheme to demonstrate the quantum behavior of high energy electrons. The study mainly focused to identify the QED feature for relativistic electrons moving in extremely strong laser fields that can be captured in possible experiments.

UAV Helps EOD Robot Work More Efficiently[Aug 21, 2019]

In order to improve the working efficiency and capability of the explosive ordnance disposal robot, recently, a research team led by Ting WANG at Shenyang Institute of Automation of the Chinese Academy of Sciences proposed a target tracking method for Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) that can be used in air-ground system, under which an UAV and an EOD robot can work collaboratively.

20-Million-Year-Old Skull Suggests Complex Brain Evolution in Monkeys, Apes[Aug 22, 2019]

Researchers from the Chinese Academy of Sciences, the American Museum of Natural History, and the University of California Santa Barbara, suggests that the brain enlarged repeatedly and independently over the course of anthropoid history, and was more complex in some early members of the group than previously recognized.

Applying Machine Learning in Intelligent Weather Consultation[Aug 21, 2019]

Researchers from the Peking University and the Institute of Atmsopheric Physics proposed the "model output machine learning" (MOML) method for simulating weather consultation. MOML is a post-processing method based on machine learning, which matches NWP forecasts against observations through a regression function.

Researchers Construct Genome-wide Map of Adaptive Genetic Variants of Tibetan Highlanders[Aug 19, 2019]

Researchers from CAS-MPG Partner Institute for Computational Biology, Shanghai Institute of Nutrition and Health and other institutions constructed a map of adaptive genetic variants of Tibetan highlanders on the whole-genome scale. This map provides the first comprehensive panel of functional variants closely related to adaptive evolution of the Tibetan people.

Scientists Find Precise Control of Terminal Division during Plant Stomatal Development[Aug 21, 2019]

A research group led by Prof. LE Jie at the Institute of Botany found a genetic suppressor of flp stomatal defects. They found that RPA2a, a core subunit of Replication Protein A (RPA) complexes, acted downstream from the core cell cycle genes of CDKB1 to ensure terminal division during stomatal development and the formation of paired guard cells to create functional stomata units.
