The CRISPR/Cas9 system produces specific and homozygous targeted gene editing in rice in one generation.
The CRISPR/Cas9 system has been demonstrated to efficiently induce targeted gene editing in a variety of organisms including plants. Recent work showed that CRISPR/Cas9-induced gene mutations inExpand

The locust genome provides insight into swarm formation and long-distance flight
Locusts are one of the world’s most destructive agricultural pests and represent a useful model system in entomology. Here we present a draft 6.5 Gb genome sequence of Locusta migratoria, which isExpand

Genome of the Chinese tree shrew.
Chinese tree shrews (Tupaia belangeri chinensis) possess many features valuable in animals used as experimental models in biomedical research. Currently, there are numerous attempts to employ treeExpand

Hydrogen sulfide donor sodium hydrosulfide-induced heat tolerance in tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum L) suspension cultured cells and involvement of Ca(2+) and calmodulin.
Hydrogen sulfide (H(2)S) is considered as a new emerging cell signal in higher plants. Hydrogen sulfide donor, sodium hydrosulfide, pretreatment significantly increased survival percentage of tobaccoExpand

Parity–time-symmetric whispering-gallery microcavities
It is now shown that coupled optical microcavities bear all the hallmarks of parity–time symmetry; that is, the system’s dynamics are unchanged by both time-reversal and mirror transformations. TheExpand

The sequence and analysis of a Chinese pig genome
BackgroundThe pig is an economically important food source, amounting to approximately 40% of all meat consumed worldwide. Pigs also serve as an important model organism because of their similarityExpand

Arabidopsis EDM2 promotes IBM1 distal polyadenylation and regulates genome DNA methylation patterns
Significance The histone 3 lysine 9 demethylase Increase in BONSAI Methylation 1 (IBM1) is critical for preventing CHG (H=A, T, or C) methylation in plant genes. We found that the putative chromatinExpand

Chiral modes and directional lasing at exceptional points
Significance Exceptional points (EPs) emerge when a system with loss or gain is tuned such that its eigenvalues and the corresponding eigenstates coalesce. By operating close to two EPs, we achievedExpand
