Researchers Propose Novel Model to Better Understand Control Mechanism of Bio-syncretic Robotics[Jan 16, 2018]

Recently, the micro and nano robotics research team from Shenyang Institute of Automation of Chinese Academy of Sciences developed a dynamic model to characterize contractile behaviors and mechanical properties of a cardiomyocyte. This study may lay the foundation for the research on dynamic optimization and control technology of bio-syncretic robots based on the biology.

Scientists Obtain Graphene Oxide Without Harming the Environment[Jan 16, 2018]

In a recent study, a research team led by Prof. REN Wencai at Institute of Metal Research of Chinese Academy of Sciences developed a method to obtain graphene oxide safe for the environment. The proposed approach is based on electrochemical oxidation and about 100 times faster than traditional methods.

How Does Thermostable Enzyme Bind Substrate Tightly at Elevated Temperature?[Jan 15, 2018]

A research team led by Prof. LI Fuli from Qingdao Institute of Bioenergy and Bioprocess Technology unraveled the function of metal ions-binding amino acids in improving substrate affinity. They chose a novel thermophilic bacterium, Defluviitalea phaphyphila, which is isolated from coastal sediment. It exhibited an intriguing ability to degrade polysaccharides of brown algae, including alginate, and laminarin.

First Fossil Record of Buxus Reported from Yunnan[Jan 15, 2018]

During two fieldwork seasons in 2014 and 2015, researchers from Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden (XTBG) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences collected five Buxus fossil leaves from the Upper Pliocene Sanying Formation of Hongyuan, Heqing County, Yunnan Province, SW China.

How Does Aerosol Affect Cloud Cover Difference Between Satellite and Surface Observation?[Jan 15, 2018]

Researchers from the Institute of Atmospheric Physics investigated the satellite sensor MODIS and surface cloud cover data and compared their difference over the period from 2002 to 2013. They found that the differences in cloud cover between MODIS and surface data at nighttime (15.58%–16.64%) were greater than that during daytime (12.74%–14.14%), and the differences in winter (29.53%–31.07%) were evidently greater than those in summer (4.64%–6.07%).
