Establishment of a minimal disease miniature pig production system for biochemical research

Establishment of a minimal disease miniature pig production system for biochemical research

The present study is aimed to use Lee-Sung strain minipig as an animal model for biomedicine research pertinent to disease mechanism model and pharmaceutical drugs screening platform. The second part is: 1. including the sustainable use of microsatellite genetic markers to monitoring genetic variation of Lee-Sung strain minipig population and the establishment of pedigree data. Microsatellite markers are useful tools in assessing genetic diversity of populations. In this study, seven microsatell...

Novel Low Band-Gap Polymer/Nanomaterial Hybrid Solar Cells; A Leaping Advance toward 10-15% Power Conversion Efficiency

Novel Low Band-Gap Polymer/Nanomaterial Hybrid Solar Cells; A Leaping Advance toward 10-15% Power Conversion Efficiency

First of all, a good news to be shared is regarding our seminal studies on the quinoxaline-based solar enery cell, which has been published in Chem. Mater. (Chem. Mater. 2012, 24, 4766–4772). This paper has been categorized as a highly cited paper and its number of citation was recently over double digits (> 100). This paper dealt with syntehses of a new fluorinated quinoxaline-based polymer and its thus prepared solar cell that achived high device performance with a photon conversion efficiency...

School of Veterinary Medicine Professor P. H. Chang’s Lab on Viral Diseases in Abalone Designated by OIE as a Reference Lab

School of Veterinary Medicine Professor P. H. Chang’s Lab on Viral Diseases in Abalone Designated by OIE as a Reference Lab

School of Veterinary Medicine Professor Dr. P. H. Chang has been involved with the research on the lesions of the Haliotis diversicolor raised in Taiwan for years. His research achievements were fully recognized by the OIE (World Organization for Animal Health) and his laboratory won the title of “Abalone herpes HIV reference laboratory” which was respected and recognized by experts in related fields during the general session of OIE held in Paris from May 23rd to 28th. Since this de...

Say Goodbye to Pain and Disease NTU Interdisciplinary Research Group Developed Biomedical Chip

Say Goodbye to Pain and Disease NTU Interdisciplinary Research Group Developed Biomedical Chip

Can you imagine for a second, that in the near future, all you need is your cell phone, and you will get hold of your physical conditions at all times, even cure your diseases and pain!! With the “biomedical chip” developed by NTU’s research group, this is no longer a far-fetched fantasy. In recent years, “biomedical chips”, which are the products of the combination of microelectronics, micro-machinery, life sciences and bio-information, has become one of the most ...

Probing New Phenomena of the Universe NTU’s High Energy Physics Team Partakes in Large Hadron Collider Research at CERN

Probing New Phenomena of the Universe NTU’s High Energy Physics Team Partakes in Large Hadron Collider Research at CERN

At the European particle physics center, CERN, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) attempted the collision of its proton beams in the morning of March 30. After 4 hours of trials, around 13:06 in the afternoon (19:06 Taipei time), proton collisions finally succeeded at 7 TeV (tera electron volts) energy. This is the highest energy ever recorded by mankind for such machines, and is 3.5 times higher than previously achieved at proton accelerators. The milestone officially starts the LHC research progr...

Taiwan’s Rivers Have a High Sinuosity of Meandering, with the Upper Stream of Lao-Nung RiverTopping the List—NTU Department of Geoscience’s Research on Sinuosity of Rivers Meandering in North Pacific

Taiwan’s Rivers Have a High Sinuosity of Meandering, with the Upper Stream of Lao-Nung RiverTopping the List—NTU Department of Geoscience’s Research on Sinuosity of Rivers Meandering in North Pacific

On March 18th, the internationally renowned journal “Science” published the results of a joint research by National Taiwan University, the Columbia University of the U.S., the Tokyo University of Japan, and the Cambridge University of Great Britain etc. The research found that, as Taiwan was subject to heavy rainfalls and flood disasters, Taiwan’s rivers have a very high sinuosity of meandering among the islands in North Pacific region, with an average value of 1.4, second only...

New Milestone in Molecular Agriculture: Publication of the whole genome sequence of the pea aphid – an international achievement where NTU developmental geneticists were involved

New Milestone in Molecular Agriculture: Publication of the whole genome sequence of the pea aphid – an international achievement where NTU developmental geneticists were involved

An analysis of the whole genome sequence of the pea aphid was published as a feature article in the latest issue of PLoS Biology, a prestigious journal in the field of life sciences. The Laboratory of Dr. Chun-che Chang, a research unit in the Department of Entomology at the Bio-Agricultural College of National Taiwan University (NTU), participated in this important publication and the feature image on the journal’s cover page was just provided by the Chang Lab. Chang, a developmental geneticist...
