    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.

  • Project kick-off meeting of Evaluation and risk assessment o...

    On March 1, 2019, a project of National key research and development program entitled 'Evaluation and risk assessment of combined toxic effects of mixed pollutants in fresh food' was kicked off in Beijing.

  • Molecular Recognition Mechanism of K27 Linked di-Ubiquitin C...

    Recently, a research group led by Ziqing Mei, from the Microbial Protein Engineering Innovation Team in Biotechnology Research Institute, CAAS published a paper entitled Chemical Protein Synthesis Enabled Mechanistic Studies on Molecular Recognition of K27-linked Ubiquitin Chains on Angewandte Chemie International Edition journal (one of top journals of chemical science, IF 12.102) on February 25, 2019.

  • Genomic analyses provide new insights to the breeding histor...

    A new article that described the genetic basis of breeding history of peach based on genome sequencing of 480 accessions was published on Genome Biology on February 22, 2019.

  • Fluorophore-free luminescent double-shelled hollow mesoporou...

    With the rapid development of nanoscience and nanotechnology in recent years, smart nano-delivery systems of pesticides have showed great potential to address some challenges that modern pesticides have faced.
