  • Chinese scientists discover new anti-HBV gene

    Beijing: A gene which can activate the body’s innate immune function and suppress replication of the hepatitis B virus (HBV) has been discovered by Chinese scientists, a finding that provides basis for effective treatment and prevention of the viral infection. The finding revealed the role that the gene plays in inhibiting the infection of pathogenic microorganisms, state-run People’s Daily reported.

  • Multicellular life began billion years earlier than thought

    Beijing: Chinese scientists have found new fossils of the world’s oldest known multicellular organisms, dating as far back as 1.56 billion years, nearly one billion years earlier than the previous record. The fossils found in carbon-rich compressions in north China’s Hebei Province, Zhu Maoyan, who led the research, told state-run Xinhua news agency today.

  • Chinese scientists claims first dogs originated from China

    Beijing: Chinese scientists claimed that dogs have originated in southern China some 33,000 years ago, disputing US research that domesticated dogs evolved 15,000 years ago in Central Asia. A research team led by Zhang Yaping from Kunming Institute of Zoology in Yunnan province has questioned the results of previous research by Cornell University in US which was described as the “largest-ever survey of worldwide canine genetic diversity”. The team’s conclusion was published

  • New lightweight, efficient batteries developed

    Beijing: Chinese scientists have developed a light weight, low-cost battery which performs better than lithium ion batteries that currently power smartphones andother portable devices. The new aluminium-graphite dual-ion battery (AGDIB) developed by researcher of the Chinese Academy of Sciences offers significantly reduced weight, volume, and fabrication cost, as well as higher energy density, in comparison with conventional lithium ion batteries (LIB).

    Mind-controlled car developed by scientists

    Beijing: No need to hold the steering wheel or step on the gas, Chinese scientists have now created a car that you can control with nothing more than brainpower.

  • Chinese scientists genetically modify human embryos

    Beijing :  In a world’s first, Chinese scientists have reported “editing” the genomes of human embryos. The results confirm widespread rumours that such experiments had been conducted in China, reports IANS.
