New Approach to Control Fungal Parasites in Oleaginous Microalga[Aug 26, 2019]

Researchers from Wuhan Botanical Garden recently established a new approach to control fungal parasites in oleaginous microalga. The new method successfully prevented fungal parasitic infections without negatively affecting biomass and lipid contents both in pilot- and industrial-scales. This method provides a new pathway for solving the global and technical fungal contamination problem in mass cultivation of microalgae and has wide future applications.

Herbivore Phylogenetic Diversity Can Be Affected By Plant Diversity Loss[Aug 23, 2019]

A joint research team integrated multiple components of plant and herbivore diversity, with a particular focus on phylogenetic diversity, to identify the linkages that drive biodiversity relationships and determine the consequences of biodiversity loss across different trophic levels.

Scientists Use Skin's Microbiome to Develop Health Index for Children with Eczema[Aug 22, 2019]

Microbiomes aren't just for understanding and modulating gut health - skin, our largest organ, hosts a vibrant and complex microbiome that can provide health insights. An international research team has developed an index to better understand skin health across human populations.

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.

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.

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.
