A sustained high-temperature fusion plasma regime facilitated by fast ions
Prof. Yong-Su Na
Nuclear fusion is one of the most attractive alternatives to carbon-dependent energy sources1. Harnessing energy from nuclear fusion in a large reactor scale, however, still presents many scientific challenges despite the many years of research and steady advances in magnetic confinement approaches.

Effects of extreme temperature on China's tea production
Prof. Sujong Jeong
The production of tea (Camellia sinensis (L.) Kuntze), the world's second most consumed beverage, is susceptible to extreme weather events. However, our understanding about the impacts of extreme temperatures and climate change on tea yields remains fairly limited.
Long-read sequencing and de novo genome assemblies reveal complex chromosome end structures caused b...
Prof. Junho Lee
Karyotype change and subsequent evolution is triggered by chromosome fusion and rearrangement events, which often occur when telomeres become dysfunctional.
DNMT1 maintains metabolic fitness of adipocytes through acting as an epigenetic safeguard of mitocho...
Prof. Jae Bum Kim
White adipose tissue (WAT) is a key regulator of systemic energy metabolism, and impaired WAT plasticity characterized by enlargement of preexisting adipocytes associates with WAT dysfunction, obesity, and metabolic complications.
Maintenance of type 2 glycolytic myofibers with age by Mib1-Actn3 axis
Prof. Young-Yun Kong
Age-associated muscle atrophy is a debilitating condition associated with loss of muscle mass and function with age that contributes to limitation of mobility and locomotion.
Realization of superabsorption by time reversal of superradiance
Prof. Kyungwon An
Emission and absorption of light lie at the heart of light–matter interaction.
Redirecting dynamic surface restructuring of a layered transition metal oxide catalyst for superior ...
Prof. Jongwoo Lim
Rationally manipulating the in situ formed catalytically active surface of catalysts remains a tremendous challenge for a highly efficient water electrolysis.
Shimiella gen. nov. and Shimiella gracilenta sp. nov. (Dinophyceae, Kareniaceae), a Kleptoplastidic ...
Prof. Hae Jin Jeong
A small dinoflagellate, ~13 μm in cell length, was isolated from Jinhae Bay, Korea. Light microscopy showed that it was similar to the kleptoplastidic dinoflagellate Gymnodinium gracilentum nom. inval. rDNA sequences were obtained and its anatomy and morphology described using light and scanning and transmission electr...
Graphene Quantum Dots Alleviate Impaired Functions in Niemann-Pick Disease Type C in Vivo
Prof. Kyung-Sun Kang
While the neuropathological characteristics of Niemann-Pick disease type C (NPC) result in a fatal diagnosis, the development of clinically available therapeutic agent remains a challenge. Here we propose graphene quantum dots (GQDs) as a potential candidate for the impaired functions in NPC in vivo. In addition to the...
Telomeres reforged with non-telomeric sequences in mouse embryonic stem cells
Prof. Junho Lee
Telomeres are part of a highly refined system for maintaining the stability of linear chromosomes.
L1 retrotransposons exploit RNA m6A modification as an evolutionary driving force
Prof. Kwangseog Ahn
L1 retrotransposons can pose a threat to genome integrity. The host has evolved to restrict L1 replication.
Simple physical mixing of zeolite prevents sulfur deactivation of vanadia catalysts for NOx removal
Prof. Do Heui Kim
Here, we report that physically mixed H-Y zeolite effectively protects vanadium active sites by trapping ABS in micropores.
An assessment of emission characteristics of Northern Hemisphere cities using spaceborne observation...
Prof. Sujong Jeong
Intensified anthropogenic activities and high levels of energy consumption in cities have led to an increase in emissions of CO2 and air pollutants, impacting air quality and calling for better measures to monitor and reduce emissions. This study assesses the emission characteristics of cities in the Northern Hemispher...
