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, "

Scientists develop first tool to use machine learning methods to compute flow around interactively designable 3D objects. Tool will be presented at this year’s prestigious SIGGRAPH conference.
When engineers or designers want to test the aerodynamic properties of the newly designed shape of a car, airplane, or other object, they would normally model...
Researchers from TU Graz and their industry partners have unveiled a world first: the prototype of a robot-controlled, high-speed combined charging system (CCS) for electric vehicles that enables series charging of cars in various parking positions.
Global demand for electric vehicles is forecast to rise sharply: by 2025, the number of new vehicle registrations is expected to reach 25 million per year....
Proteins must be folded correctly to fulfill their molecular functions in cells. Molecular assistants called chaperones help proteins exploit their inbuilt folding potential and reach the correct three-dimensional structure. Researchers at the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry (MPIB) have demonstrated that actin, the most abundant protein in higher developed cells, does not have the inbuilt potential to fold and instead requires special assistance to fold into its active state. The chaperone TRiC uses a previously undescribed mechanism to perform actin folding. The study was recently published in the journal Cell.
Actin is the most abundant protein in highly developed cells and has diverse functions in processes like cell stabilization, cell division and muscle...
Scientists have discovered that the electrical resistance of a copper-oxide compound depends on the magnetic field in a very unusual way -- a finding that could help direct the search for materials that can perfectly conduct electricity at room temperatur
What happens when really powerful magnets--capable of producing magnetic fields nearly two million times stronger than Earth's--are applied to materials that...
