  • The Interaction between the Yang Cycle and Iron Metabolism H...

    Scientists of the Crop Metabolic Regulation and Nutritional Fortification Team, Biotechnology Research Institute, Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences have recently uncovered a novel Fe homeostasis mechanism in crops.

  • Protein-amylose/amylopectin Molecular Interactions during Hi...

    Recently, the Innovation Team of Plant Protein Structure and Function Regulation, Institute of Food Science and Technology, Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences (IFST, CAAS), has clarified the protein-amylose/amylopectin molecular interactions during high-moisture extrusion processing and the “sub-layer transformation” mechanism toward generating meat-like textures.

  • Research Suggests Yield Prediction Method under Water Stress...

    The Farmland Irrigation Research Institute of Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences (CAAS) used the UAV-based multispectral and thermal infrared image features as inputs for the framework of elastic network regression and entropy weight ensemble algorithm to predict the wheat yield under water stress conditions, providing a method for accurate monitoring of wheat growth and precise irrigation management under water deficit conditions.

  • Identification of a Novel Plant Iron-Regulated Transporter

    Recently, a novel iron-regulated transporter ZmIRT2 in maize has been discovered by the Biotechnology Research Institute and Qingdao Agricultural University. ZmIRT2 involves in the regulation of iron and zinc balance in maize, which provides genetic resources and theoretical basis for breeding new crop varieties with high iron contents.

  • Scientists Further Reveal the Infection Mechanism of Ustilag...

    Ustilaginoidea virens, the causal agent of the rice false smut disease, is an economically important fungal pathogen posing threats to rice production. The infection of U. virens not only reduces the quality and yield of rice, but also contaminates rice seeds and straws with toxins such as ustiloxins and ustilaginoidins.

  • Cropping System Exerts Stronger Influence on Antibiotic Resi...

    Antibiotic Resistance Genes (ARGs), a kind of contaminants of emerging concern, often occur in the reclaimed water (RW) discharged from urban sewage treatment plants.

  • Groundbreaking Discovery: Methanogenic Hydrocarbon Degradati...

    On December 22nd, 2021, Nature published online the latest research results of the Bioenergy Microbiome Team of Biogas Institute of Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs. In collaboration with other research teams, the team discovered a new type of methanogenic archaeon and confirmed that it can directly oxidize long-chain alkanes to produce methane

  • A Universal Key to Solve Self-incompatiblity of Potatoes

    The potato is the third most important staple food crop consumed by approximately 1.3 billion people. A major challenge appears in terms of expanding the potato’s contribution to feeding the fast-growing global population, especially under the threat of climate change.

  • Optimization of C-to-G Base Editors with Sequence Context Pr...

    Previous reports have shown that C-to-G transversion could be achieved by replacing the uracil-DNA glycosylase inhibitor (UGI) of a CBE with a uracil-DNA glycosylase (UNG), while these C-to-G editors showed efficient editing at limited target sites and provided few rules for efficient C-to-G editing.

  • Research advance on the current extraction, purification, an...

    Tea is a traditional beverage in China, which has a variety of health effects. Recently, scientists from the Research Center for Plants and Human Health, Institute of Urban Agriculture, Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences, has published a review paper in Critical Reviews in Food Science and Nutrition to introduce the recent research advance on the refined extraction techniques of tea polyphenols (TPs).
