Discovery of Weyl Semimetals Was Selected by APS as One of the Highlights of the Year 2015

27-01-2016

The work: Experimental discovery of Weyl semimetal TaAs by the Hong Ding’s group at the Institute of Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) was selected by American Physical Society (APS) as one of the highlights of the year 2015. The ARPES measurements were performed at the “Dreamline” beamline of the Shanghai Synchrotron Radiation Facility (SSRF). Read More

Mummified Precocial Bird Wings in Mid-Cretaceous Burmese Amber

15-07-2016

Our knowledge of Cretaceous plumage is limited by the fossil record itself: compression fossils surrounding skeletons lack the finest morphological details and seldom preserve visible traces of colour, while discoveries in amber have been disassociated from their source animals. Read More

The Bacteriophage  29 Tail Possesses a Pore-forming Loop for Cell Membrane Penetration

08-07-2016

Most bacteriophages are tailed bacteriophages with an isometric or a prolate head attached to a long contractile, long non-contractile, or short non-contractile tail. The tail is a complex machine that plays a central role in host cell recognition and attachment, cell wall and membrane penetration, and viral genome ejection. Read More

Structural Basis of N6-adenosine Methylation by the METTL3–METTL14 Complex

08-07-2016

Chemical modifications of RNA have essential roles in a vast range of cellular processes. N6-methyladenosine (m6A) is an abundant internal modification in messenger RNA and long non-coding RNA that can be dynamically added and removed by RNA methyltransferases (MTases) and demethylases, respectively.
