  • Study Reveals How the Clock Component OsLUX Regulates Rice ...

    Critical as is for optimal reproductive growth and yield in cereals, flowering time (heading date) is controlled by a sophisticated genetic network. Among the network components, the circadian oscillator genes play vital roles in coordinating internal physiology and external environmental factors to regulate flowering.

  • Scientists from IBFC CAAS Reveal the Anticancer Mechanism of...

    Recently, researchers from Institute of Bast Fiber Crops, Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences (IBFC, CAAS) have revealed the molecular mechanism of lunasin on inhibiting the proliferation of human breast cancer cell of MDA-MB-231 by using multiple omics technology.

  • Research Progress on the Pangenomes and Population Genomics ...

    Underutilized crops are often stress-tolerant and combine with unique and beneficial nutritional profiles, which made them very important to overcome the challenge of climate change and the need to feed a globally increasing population.

  • An Efficient Surrogate Prime Editor and Realizing Multiplex ...

    Recently, Crop Precision Breeding Technology Innovation Team of the Institute of Crop Sciences of the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences (ICS-CAAS) has successfully developed efficient surrogate prime editors PE3-HS, PE3-AS, and PE3-DS, realizing multiplex precision gene editing in rice for the first time.

  • Scientists Further Unravelled the Underlying Mechanism of He...

    Rice heading date (flowering time) marks the floral transition from the vegetative stage to the reproductive stage in rice. It is a vital agronomic trait that influences rice reproduction and an important target trait in breeding. Heading date control in rice is very complicated, involving both genetic factors and exogenous factors, such as photoperiod and temperature.

  • Novel Molecular Mechanism of Rice Seed Germination and Salt ...

    Recently, the research group of Prof. Huang Rongfeng from Biotechnology Research Institute, Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences (BRI, CAAS) has dissected the role of an APETALA2-type transcription factor, SALT AND ABA RESPONSE ERF1 (OsSAE1), as a positive regulator of seed germination and salt tolerance in rice, which provides avenues to improve seed vigor and seedling tolerance via molecular breeding.

  • Progress Made in Application of Tea-Polyphenol-Based Materia...

    A new material based on self-assembled tea polyphenol has recently been developed by the Innovation Team of Tea Quality and Risk Assessment of the Tea Research Insitute of CAAS (TRI, CAAS) for potential application as a new antibacterial coating.

  • Genomic Analyses Reveal the Effects of Natural and Artificia...

    Recently, the Peach Resources and Breeding Innovation Team of Zhengzhou Fruit Research Institute cooperated with Wuhan Maiwei Company to publish a paper entitled "Combined nature and human selections reshaped peach fruit metabolome" in Genome Biology.

  • Anti-Nutritional Factors and Protein Dispersibility Index as...

    Recently, researchers from Feed Processing and Quality and Safety Innovation Research Team of the Institute of Feed Research of Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences found the key indicators that could distinguish the quality of soybean meals, and established a correlation model between quality indicators of soybean meal and the growth performance of Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus GIFT).

  • Resistance and Pathogenicity of Salmonella Thompson Isolated...

    Recently, researchers from Veterinary Medicines and Immunomodulators Innovation Research Team of the Institute of Feed Research of CAAS studied the drug resistance of clinical Salmonella Thompson and its pathogenicity to poultry. The results of the study are of great significance to evaluate the drug-resistant transmission ability of Salmonella Thompson and its harm to poultry breeding.
