  • Balancing Growth and Defense Responses under Shade Condition...

    Recently, cooperating with South China Agricultural University, researchers from Biotechnology Research Institute in CAAS have published a research paper entitled “Arabidopsis FHY3 and FAR1 Regulate the Balance between Growth and Defense Responses under Shade Conditions”on July 17 in Plant Cells.

  • Coordinative Mechanism Regulating Nitrogenase Activity by a ...

    Recently, the latest research of the microbial functional genomics team led by Professor Min Lin of Biotechnology Research Institute, CAAS indicated that a novel regulatory noncoding RNA is cooperatively involved in the optimal expression of nitrogenase genes in Pseudomonas stutzeri A1501.

  • Discovery of a new member of rice male sterility genes——TIP3...

    Male reproductive development involves a complex series of biological events and precise transcriptional regulation is essential for this biological process in flowering plants.

  • A Robust Breeding Technology Developed for Supersweet, Waxy,...

    Maize is one of the major cereals that are important for feedstuff, industrial feedstock and human foods. Specialty maize, such as sweet corns and waxy corns, has been welcomed by consumers for a long time.

  • Progress made in using graphene oxide as a pesticide synergi...

    Recently, Prof. Wang Zhenying’s team from Institute of Plant Protection, CAAS has published their research results as a front-cover paper entitled “Graphene oxide as a multifunctional synergist of insecticides against Lepidopteran insect” on Environmental Science: Nano, a prestigious journal affiliated with the Royal Society of Chemistry.

  • New CRISPR/Cas9 toolkits for efficient genome editing in ric...

    Recently, an article entitled “Cas9-NG greatly expands the targeting scope of genome-editing toolkit by recognizing NG and other atypical PAMs in rice” was published in the Molecular Plant (IF = 9.326) by Prof. Zhou Huanbin’s research group from the Institute of Plant Protection of the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences (IPP-CAAS).

  • The Mechanism of Peach Ethylene Response Factor (ERFs) Regul...

    The research team led by Professor Wang Zhiqiang from the Zhengzhou Fruit Research Institute of Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences (CAAS) has been working on the study of peach fruit quality biology for many years. Recently, the team made important progress in the molecular mechanism of ethylene and abscisic acid synergistically regulating fruit ripening and softening.

  • The new progress of gene identifying associated with fruit d...

    Crop evolution is a long-term process involving selection by natural evolutionary forces and anthropogenic influences; however, the genetic mechanisms underlying the domestication and improvement of fruit crops have not been well studied to date.

  • RNA Transcript-templated Homology-directed DNA Repair Enable...

    One of the main obstacles to achieve gene replacement in plants is efficient delivery of a donor repair template (DRT) into the nucleus for homology-directed DNA repair (HDR) of double-stranded DNA breaks (DSBs).

  • Evolution from covalent conjugation to non-covalent interact...

    A group of researchers led by Dr. Honglin Jia from Harbin Veterinary Research Institute of CAAS, in collaboration with Dr. Noboru Mizushima of Tokyo University and other researchers found an evolution from covalent conjugation to non-covalent interaction in the ubiquitin-like ATG12 system.
