MELK Technology Developed

The MELK Technology developed based on cooperation between CAS-MPG Partner Institute for Computational Biology (PICB), Shanghai Institutes for Biological Sciences, CAS and the University of Magdeburg is capable of mapping hundreds of different proteins in one tissue section or cell sample. The Oct. 2 issue of international journal Nature Biotechnology published this manuscript as cover paper. The research result shows that MELK technology may facilitate the development of diagnostics and targeted therapies and locate the proteins that consist the protein network. The cover paper points out that the state-specific lead proteins must obey a certain temporal and spatial regulation, while detection and measurement of such regulation is the biggest challenge in the study of proteomics.
As the first Max Planck Partner Institute in China, PICB, Shanghai Institutes for Biological Sciences, CAS was co-founded by CAS and MPG in October 2006.


3rd China-Russia Women's Culture Week Kicks off

On Oct. 20th, the 3rd China-Russia Women's Culture Week held the opening ceremony grandly in Beijing. The women scientists from both China and Russia and other delegates met to witness the cross-cultural friendship between the two big countries. Prof. Fang Xin, Deputy Party Secretary of CAS delivered a speech at the conference and she briefed that the women S & T researchers in China are a significant force active in the fields of science, technology and engineering. According to her introduction, by the year 2000, female students in higher education of China exceeded 40% for the first time in the history, indicating that the females have raised their educational degree; and in 2002, the women S & T researchers in China amounted to 9.98 million, accounting for 41.0% of the national total, a rise from the 38.7% in 1997.
