A new way of studying biological networks provides key insights into the ecology and etiology of human microbiome-associated diseases

  In a paper published in Ecological Monographs, Professors MA Zhanshan (also known as Sam Ma) from Kunming Institute of Zoology, Chinese Academy of Sciences and Aaron M. Ellison (Harvard University) presented a new way of analyzing networks of interacting organisms, which provides a powerful framework and supporting approaches for investigating the ecology and etiology of human microbiome a... more
Scientists discovered low immune activation in SIV-infected northern pig-tailed macaques (Macaca leonina)

  Non-human primates are widely used animal models in studying pathological mechanisms of HIV/SIV infections due to their close evolutionary status with human being. The pig-tailed macaque, which can be divided into three species based on morphological characteristics and geographic distribution, i.e., Southern pig-tailed macaque (Macaca nemestrina), Northern pig-tailed macaque (NPMs, M.leon... more
Scientists named a new species of the genus Liurana (Anura, Ceratobatrachidae) from Medog County, Tibet, China,

  Recently, the research group of Prof. CHE Jing (Kunming Institute of Zoology, Chinese Academy of Sciences) discovered a new species of the genus Liurana Dubois, 1986 from Medog County, Tibet, China, and named it Liurana vallecula sp. nov. (English common name: Valley Papilla-tongued). The “vallecula” means “valley inhabitor”, in reference to the habitat of this species in the lower riv... more
Molecular evidence of neoteny during human brain development revealed by transgenic monkey study

  Neoteny is a unique phenomenon during human evolution. Compared to nonhuman primates, humans have delayed or slowed body development. This human-specific neotenous process, in view of evolutionary significance, provides an extended time window for brain development and neural network plasticity, a key factor affecting the formation of human intelligence. However, the genetic basis of human... more
Scientists reconstructed the ancestral gene regulatory network for caste differentiation in ants

  Recently, scientists unraveled the core gene regulatory network determining the reproductive division of labor in ants based on comparative transcriptomics study across diverse ant species from 3 different subfamily and 5 different genera.
  Ant colony consists of one or more egg-laying queens, a large number of sterile workers and some winged sexual males and gynes (unmated queens). The... more
