    To reveal the genetic basis of the interaction between Xanthomonas pathogens and their host plants for breeding durable broad-spectrum resistance crops, the recent important progress in these fields are summarized. The devastation of plant diseases caused by Xanthomonas species is determined by Xanthomonas T3SS effectors, mainly transcription activator-like effectors (TALEs), which target effector-binding element (EBE) sites of either crop resistance (R) or susceptibility (S) genes. Then, the five types of TALE-targets in plants are briefly stated and the importance of plant general transcription factors TFIIA in the activation of NLR-type R genes in plant resistance is stressed. Finally, that gene-editing of EBEs of R or S genes is proposed to be the new strategy for resistance breeding to control crop diseases in the future.

    Development in the stem cells and tissue engineering technology provides novel ideas both for large tissue defect treatment and organ replacement. However, the vascular network in human organs is delicate and complex, which is hard to be manufactured and has become the main bottleneck in organ regeneration and transplantation. In addition, the inability to form a vascular system also restricts the size of organoids cultured in vitro from breaking through. Therefore, an idea of building synchronized functional vascular network was proposed to lay a good foundation for maintaining stem cell survival and developing organ regeneration.

    You might remember that you hesitated to grab a knob in fear of the static electricity. Although static electricity was observed by Thales in B.C.600, its mechanisms had been elusive for several thousand years. In recently years, this seemingly impregnable mystery has been partially unraveled by several researches showing that static electricity is caused by the deformation of protrusion on materials at the nanoscale. This one step forward in understanding electrostatics will bring vast opportunities in a number of applications. Now we human beings hold the key to turning electrostatics from a foe into friend.

    2021, 55 (Sup.1):  88-90.  doi: 10.16183/j.cnki.jsjtu.2021.S1.015
    Abstract ( 859 )   PDF (2630KB) ( 377 )   Save
    The contradiction between supply and demand of agricultural irrigation water is becoming increasingly prominent under the influence of population growth, cultivated land reduction, climate change and so on. Especially in the desert areas, the sustainable development requires effective access to water resources and the realization of water-saving and energy-saving planting. The technology of adsorption-based atmospheric water harvesting can get rid of the limitation of geographical location and capture considerable fresh water resources from the air, providing sustainable irrigation water for agriculture development. In the application scenario of greenhouses, the water harvesting device can adsorb the vapor from the moist air, regulate indoor humidity, and release adsorption heat. The water collected in the desorption process could be recycled for greenhouse irrigation. Furthermore, the technology would be potentially applied in urban farming and desert bloom.

    Some specially designed molecules, such as molecular switches and molecular motors, can reversibly change their geometrical shape when receiving energy from the outside. Such molecular movement enables the active molecule to act as a mechanical actuator. Once orderly assembled in large numbers, these molecules can provide a big driving force, leading to macroscopic actuation behaviors. However, the power of a single molecule remains unknown. The answer to this fundamental question could lead to a deeper understanding of molecular properties and more precise molecular-scale actuators for applications.
