Researchers from the Shanghai Astronomical Observatory and their collaborators have used high-resolution observational data from the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array to discover a massive protostellar disk in the Galactic Center and determine how its spiral arms were formed.
A research team from the Institute of Atmospheric Physics has revealed that the latest CMIP6 climate models tend to overestimate future Afro-Asian summer monsoon (AfroASM) rainfall and runoff due to present-day biases in warming patterns.
A joint research team led by Prof. LIU Chuanzhou from the Institute of Geology and Geophysics found abyssal peridotites dredged from the seafloor along the Southwest Indian Ridge that are the oldest rocks from the ocean ever discovered.
A research group led by Prof. ZHENG Jian from the Institute of Chemistry developed a new interlayer bonding cleavage strategy to prepare a two-dimensional monolayer polymeric fullerene. They prepared magnesium intercalated C60 bulk crystals as the precursor to the exfoliation reaction.
Researchers from LI Jiayang's group at the Institute of Genetics and Developmental Biology provided an effective strategy to overcome the bottleneck of rice yield using the tiling deletion to edit the cis-regulatory region of rice pleiotropic gene IPA1 and breaking the tradeoff of rice yield component traits.
A team of scientists led by LIN Hongxuan from a genetic module in rice links heat signals from Centre for Excellence in Molecular Plant Sciences found that the cell's plasma membrane to its internal chloroplasts to protect them from heat-stress damage and increase grain yield under heat stress.
