Genomic study reveals molecular mechanism of high-altitude adaptation of snub-nosed monkeys (Rhinopithecus)

  The snub-nosed monkey genus Rhinopithecus (Colobinae) comprises five closely related species (R. bieti, R. roxellana, R. brelichia, R. avunculus and R. strykeri). All these species are among the world’s rarest and most endangered primates. In addition to conservation value, Rhinopithecus species are unique in the context of adaptive evolution. They show a distribution across altitudinal g... more
CYD-6-28, a Possible Novel Agent in TNBC treatment

  As a type of breast cancer with poorest prognosis and high relapse rate, the triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) is characterized with no expressions of the genes of estrogen receptor (ER), progesterone receptor (PR) and Her2/neu. And because most chemotherapy need to target at one of the three receptors, the lack of gene expressions in TNBC has made it difficult to treat and often requir... more
Scientists Reveal the Unique Genetic Mechanisms of Six-white-point Pigmentation in Diannan small-ear Pigs

  As one of the most obvious phenotypic characters, coat color in domestic pigs is of great importance in artificial selections. Six-white-point (SWP) coat (white coat on the four feet, the head, and the end of tail but with the remaining coat being black) is one of the common pigmentation patterns being found in many different breeds of both European and East Asian domestic pigs. Previous s... more
Scientists propose “Our of Asia” hypothesis on the origin of genus Rena

  The genus Rena includes over 100 species. The true frogs of genus Rana are widely inhabited in both New and Old World, and are mainly found in the northern hemisphere, e.g., Asia, Europe, North America and north of South America. As the model animals which are commonly applied in behavior, development, genetics, physiology, ecology and evolution, these species have received extensive atten... more
Human-modified forests are equally important in bird conservation

  In biodiversity conservation, e.g., bird conservation, it is a common sense that the primary forests are the crucial areas. However, due to the facts that most of the primary forests are restricted to ridges and are in decreasing in areas, whereas, quite large proportions mountainous regions are covered by human-modified forests, and species turnover changes rapidly along montane elevation... more
