In a recent study, researchers from the Xihsuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden (XTBG) and Chengdu Institute of Biology revealed the large-scale patterns of understory biomass and root/shoot ratio across climatic regions and forest types, and quantified the underlying drivers of understory biomass and its allocation at a large scale.
A research team led by Prof. DAI Haiming from the Hefei Institutes of Physical Science (HFIPS) recently announced the constitutive BAK/MCL1 complexes could predict chemotherapy drugs sensitivity of ovarian cancer.
Researchers led by Prof. WU Zhengyan from the Hefei Institutes of Physical Science, the Institute of Health and Medical Technology and the Binzhou Medical University fabricated a series of Gd-doped iron oxide nanoclusters to systemically study the inherent mechanism through which Gd doping tune the T2 contrast ability of the nanoclusters.
In a recent study, researchers from the Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden (XTBG) demonstrated that Jatropha curcas florigens (JcFT proteins) can be transmitted by grafting to induce floral transition in woody perennial species of the Jatropha genus, and the efficiency of graft-transmitted JcFT for floral induction depends on the transporting distance.
