Chinese scientists led by Prof. XIE Qi from the Institute of Genetics and Developmental Biology have identified a key gene involved in crop alkaline tolerance that may greatly improve crop yield in sodic environments through the use of genetic engineering.
Scientists have found key evidence for the existence of nanohertz gravitational waves, marking a new era in nanoHertz gravitational research. The research was based on pulsar timing observations carried out with the FAST.
Researchers from the National Astronomical Observatories assessed the surface structure and chemical composition of Martian dunes to determine the age of sand structures and prevailing wind directions at different locations near the Zhurong rover landing site.
A Chinese expedition team on Tuesday reached the summit of Mount Qomolangma, the world's highest peak, where they carried out scientific research. The feat came almost 70 years after man's first successful expedition to the top of the world, when New Zealander Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay from Nepal summited Mt. Qomolangma from the south ridge on May 29, 1953.
The Daocheng Solar Radio Telescope, a solar telescope array in southwest China, passed key testing on Wednesday, marking the official completion of the world's largest synthesis aperture radio telescope, according to the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS).
Scientists from the Shanghai Astronomical Observatory has used new millimetre-wavelength observations to produce an image that shows, for the first time, both the ring-like structure that reveals the matter falling into the central black hole and the powerful relativistic jet in the prominent radio galaxy Messier 87.
Researchers from the Institute of Zoology and the Beijing Institute of Genomics have revealed that the youngest subfamily of endogenous retroviruse is awakened during aging, they proposed a new theory of programed and contagious aging induced by resurrection of endogenous retroviruses.
Researchers have discovered that a massive anomaly deep within the Earth's interior may be a remnant of the collision about 4.5 billion years ago that formed the Moon. This research offers important new insights not only into Earth's internal structure but also its long-term evolution and the formation of the inner solar system.
