Scientists indentify 46 Leptonetela novel species in Southwest China

  It is commonly accepted that extreme environments, such as caves, could influence the diversifications of species, e.g., the existence of large numbers of morphologically closed species in caves. Due to the difficulties in separating these species, the biodiversities of cave organisms could be significantly underestimated. DNA barcoding is a widely accepted taxonomic method that uses a sho... more
Was Chicken Domesticated in Northern China?

  Chicken domestication is an interesting topic, and attracts high interests among archaeologists and animal geneticists. Northern China is recognized as an agricultural homeland in East Asia. Several archaeological evidences highlight the possibilities of chicken domestication in ancient Northern China.
  In 2014, a research paper based on ancient mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) entitled “Earl... more
Mitochondrial Genomes Reveal Peopling of Pamirs

  In 1838, “Roof of the World” was first used to describe the Pamirs by the British explorer John Wood. The high altitude makes the Pamirs a big challenge in human dispersal in Central Asia.
  The terrible traffic and environment made the investigation of population genetics difficult in this region. Therefore, the settlement history is still unclear in the Pamirs.
  To address this is... more
Researchers Made New Progress in Expression Profiles and Regulatory Network of Alzheimer’s Disease

  Recently, by using a systematic integrative analysis based on the largest collection of brain expression profiles of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and other AD related omics data, researchers identified several upstream regulator genes which may play a crucial role in regulatory network of gene expression in AD brain. The study suggested that targeting the expression of these upstream regulato... more
A New Cave-dwelling Loach (Triplophysa xichouensis) Found in Yunnan, China

  China has the highest diversity of cave fishes in the world. There are more than 100 species recorded in China. According to the necessity of cave environment, cave fishes are divided into 3 types: typical cave fishes, atypical cave fishes and accidental cave dwelling fishes.
  Triplophysa is the largest groups in the family Nemacheilidae (Cypriniformes), most of which are so far known f... more
