  • Study Reveals Weathering History of Western Pacific Island Arc Over the Past 140,000 Years
    The tropical western Pacific island arc is dominated by basalt-ultrabasic basalts. Under the combined influence of the suitable climate (high temperature and strong precipitation) in the tropical warm pool area and the steep elevation drop of the island...

  • Study Reveals Unique Division Manner and Nitrogen Metabolism of A Novel Deep-sea Planctomycetes Bacterium
    Recently, the research team led by Prof. SUN Chaomin from the Institute of Oceanology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (IOCAS) has cultured the first strictly anaerobic Planctomycetes bacterium from the deep-sea cold seeps and revealed its unique divi...
      Planctomycetes bacteria have complex inner cell structure: some have tight chromatin surrounded by membrane, which is similar to the nucleus of eukaryotes; others contain structures similar to eukaryotic organelles, such as the "rough endoplasmic r...
