Rice Science, formerly Chinese Rice Research Newsletter, is an international quarterly journal. The primary purpose of this journal is to introduce the advancements and achievements in rice sciences in China to the world. Rice Science encourages submissions from outside China, to strengthen the communication of rice scientists from China and other countries, and to contribute to the safety of food supply in the world.
Rice Science accepts contributions on all aspects of rice sciences: original research papers, reviews, as well as short communications. Topics covered include: breeding and genetics, biotechnology, germplasm resources, pest management, physiology, soil and fertilizer management, ecology, cereal chemistry and post-harvest processing.
Rice Science is sponsored by China’s National Rice Research Institute in cooperation with the State Key Laboratory of Rice Biology and the Chinese National Rice Improvement Center.
Almost half the world depends on rice as a major source of food. Although most rice producers and consumers live in Asia, rice is also an essential staple and a source of income for millions of others, making rice production one of the planet’s most important economic activities. Rice farms cover 11% of the world’s arable area, so the development of sustainable technologies can have a large positive impact on the global environment.
Gilles Jonker, Elsevier Publisher of Agricultural Sciences comments "This exciting partnership enhances our well-established agriculture portfolio and has been the result of close collaboration with colleagues in our Beijing office and with representatives of the China National Rice Research Institute, "

A newly developed laser technology has enabled physicists in the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics (jointly run by LMU Munich and the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics) to generate attosecond bursts of high-energy photons of unprecedented intensity. This has made it possible to observe the interaction of multiple photons in a single such pulse with electrons in the inner orbital shell of an atom.
In order to observe the ultrafast electron motion in the inner shells of atoms with short light pulses, the pulses must not only be ultrashort, but very...
A group of researchers led by Andrea Cavalleri at the Max Planck Institute for Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) in Hamburg has demonstrated a new method enabling precise measurements of the interatomic forces that hold crystalline solids together. The paper Probing the Interatomic Potential of Solids by Strong-Field Nonlinear Phononics, published online in Nature, explains how a terahertz-frequency laser pulse can drive very large deformations of the crystal.
By measuring the highly unusual atomic trajectories under extreme electromagnetic transients, the MPSD group could reconstruct how rigid the atomic bonds are...

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.
In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...
