Chinese researchers have discovered that less light and more water treatment can improve woody seedlings in translocated forest soil at the country's subtropical karst landforms, according to a recent study published in the journal Forest Ecology and Management.
The Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), China's highest academic institution in natural sciences, revealed its annual "Highlight Researches" list Sunday. Gene-edited diseased monkeys cloning, an archaeological discovery of the earliest human occupation of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau and the unveiling of the African swine fever virus structure are the top three research advances in 2019.
Chinese scientists have developed an octopus-inspired soft robot with the capabilities of shrinking, environment-adaptive camouflage and multimodal locomotion. The robot possesses outstanding obstacle-crossing abilities including crawling within a two-mm-high tunnel and swimming through a 450-micrometer-wide channel, said DU Xuemin, the leading researcher.
Chinese researchers have discovered an important pathogenic mechanism of Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection, gaining a better understanding of how the bacterium causes disease. They made the discovery by identifying a previously unrecognized mechanism that Mycobacterium tuberculosis uses to suppress host immunity. A paper on the finding has been published on the website of the science journal Nature.
