Epidemiological and genetic characteristics of swine pseudorabies virus in mainland China between 2012 and 2017
Phylogenetic analysis based on gB, gC, and gE showed that PRV strains prevalent in China had a remarkably distinct evolutionary relationship with PRVs from other countries, which might explain the observation that Bartha-K61 vaccine was unable to provide full protection against emergent strains.

This is the first report to describe a real-time RT-PCR assay capable of detecting PRRSV in crude serum samples without the requirement for purifying RNA, and has a great potential for application to other RNA viruses.
Development of a multiplex PCR to detect and discriminate porcine circoviruses in clinical specimens
The multiplex PCR assay could be used as a differential diagnostic tool for monitoring and control of PCVs in the field and indicates that the PCVs infection and their co-infection are severe in Hubei province, Central China.
Tea polyphenols inhibit the growth and virulence of ETEC K88.
Effects of heavy metal pollution on microbial communities and activities of mining soils in Central Tibet, China
Results indicated that compared to the control, soils in Sites 1-4 were polluted by heavy metals, resulting in decrease in culturable number of bacteria, actinomyces, ammonifying bacteria, nitrobacteria and cellulolytic bacteria, and MBC contents, but increase in basal respiration and qCO 2 .
