Scientist gained insights into the genetic basis underlying protective resemblance in dead-leaf butterflies Kallima inachus

  Protective resemblance is an important ecological adaptive mechanism in the struggle for survival of many organisms. It usually includes three categories: general resemblance to the environment (i.e., crypsis), more exactly imitating surrounding objects, such as bark, a leaf, or a flower (i.e., masquerade), and resemblance of other species (mimcry: such as Bayesian mimicry and Mullerian mi... more
SZDB2.0: updated version of schizophrenia genetics database

  Schizophrenia is a complex and heterogeneous disorder with a heritability about 80%. In recent years, benefiting from the results of large-scale research consortia and the development of sequencing technology, the genetics study of schizophrenia has made great progress. Genetic studies, including genome-wide association studies (GWASs), whole exome/genome sequencing (WES/WGS), and copy-num... more
Zika virus can be transmitted through breast milk: a proof from animal model

  Zika virus (ZIKV) is an arbovirus and mainly transmitted in humans by several Aedes mosquitoes, especially Aedes aegypti. It has caused a series of epidemics in Africa and Asia since 1947. Its explosive outbreak in Brazil in 2015 and association with foetal microcephaly evoked global attention,and further prompted the World Health Organization to issue a global health emergency. In 2018, Z... more
CAS Scientists Propose New Concept for Defining and Measuring Individual-level Genetic Diversity

  Summary: A team led by CAS Fellow Ya-Ping Zhang and Prof. Zhanshan (Sam) Ma (Chinese Academy of Sciences) recently proposes a new concept, termed “individual-level genetic diversity.” The new concept is contrastingly different from existing concepts of genetic diversity, since existing genetic diversities (heterogeneities) have been traditionally defined and measured for population(s), r... more
Anna Karenina principle and human microbiome-associated diseases

  Summary: In a paper published recently in Cell Press’s iScience, Professor Zhanshan (Sam) Ma (Chinese Academy of Sciences) tested the applicability of AKP (Anna Karenina principle) to the human microbiome-associated diseases, and further discovered that AKP effects are primarily influenced by highly dominant microbial species and less influenced by rare species.
  The AKP refers to obse... more
