A research group led by Prof. HUANG Diying from the Nanjing Institute of Geology and Palaeontology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (NIGPAS) systematically studied the water boatman Karataviella popovi, a representative insect from the Middle-Late Jurassic Daohugou Biota of northeastern China. Of the 157 examined K. popovi fossils, 30 adult females were preserved with a cluster of eggs anchored on their left mesotibia.

Computer-generated holography (CGH) is acknowledged as the next-generation display technology for its ability to visualize photorealistic 3D imagery to naked eyes. However, efficient rendering of high-quality 3D CGH has been a grand challenge due to high computational cost and complicacy of correctly handling effects such as occlusion and depth-of-field. To tackle this problem, scientists from MIT introduced a machine learning system that understands the underlying physics and accelerates this process by orders of magnitude.

The interaction between cell surface receptors and extracellular ligands is fundamental to bodily processes. New methods can measure the ligand-receptor binding forces at the single-cell level. Few can measure the shear binding affinity over a single cell. A new optical technique called single-cell rotational adhesion frequency assay (scRAFA) has been developed to fill the blank. scRAFA could find applications in studying the spatial organization of cell surface receptors and diagnosing infectious diseases.
