[24-07-2009]The first mosquitocidal microbial whole genome sequence has been accomplished by Wuhan Institute ...

The first whole genome sequence in China of a mosquitocidal bacterial, Bacillus sphaericus C3-41, has been completed. Genomic comparison indicated that this bacterium might be related to a kind of marine bacterium. Both of these two bacterial are not able to grow on sugar because of the absence of key enzymes for sugar transfer system and sugar metabolism. This research has been published on Jo...

[24-07-2009]Wuhan Institute of Virology, CAS made important discovery about HIV-1 B’ molecular evolution and...

Recently, WIV, CAS has published its research paper about HIV-1 B’ molecular evolution and molecular characteristics on the world renowned journal—AIDS (2008.22(14):1851-1858). According to AIDS Reviewers comments, “the paper s strongest areas are the careful and detailed genetic analyses and presentation of phylogenetic data on globally relevant subtype B and B strains.” Dr. Rongge Yang an...

[01-08-2016]RpoS-dependent sRNA RgsA regulates Fis and AcpP in Pseudomonas aeruginosa

RgsA is a phylogenetically conserved small regulatory RNA (sRNA) in Pseudomonas species. This sRNA has been shown to be directly controlled by the major stationary phase and stress sigma factor σS (RpoS), and also indirectly regulated by the GacS/GacA two-component system. However, the role and the regulatory targets of this sRNA remain unclear. Here, the research group led by Professor Shiyu...
