    WCAM-2014 with the Theme of “Dream of Ubiquitous Smartness” will be held at Chongqing Yuelai International Conference & EXPO Center, China during June 6-9, 2014. It is intended to provide a platform for professionals around the world to exchange state-of-the-art research and development and identify research needs and opportunities in this emerging field.
      As the cornerstone of high-tech industry of the twenty-first century, Advanced Materials are even known as the "cradle" of new technologies, new products, and new equipment of all areas in a sense and will create a huge composite materials market on renewable energy. Based on its significance, WCAM will bring about enormous benefits as well as open up a new and broader pathway for information and experience exchange between China and the rest of the world.

                      How a Genetic Locus Protects Adult Blood-Forming Stem Cells
                      Mammalian imprinted Gtl2 protects adult hematopoietic stem cells by restricting metabolic activity in the cells' mitochondria.
                      Genetic Basis of Fatal Flu Side Effect Discovered
                      A group of people with fatal H1N1 flu died after their viral infections triggered a deadly hyperinflammatory disorder in susceptible individuals with gene mutations linked to the overactive immune response, according to a recent study.
                      New Tech Vastly Improves CRISPR/Cas9 Accuracy
                      A new CRISPR/Cas9 technology developed by scientists at UMass Medical School is precise enough to surgically edit DNA at nearly any genomic location, while avoiding potentially harmful off-target changes typically seen in standard CRISPR gene editing techniques.

                      Kit can help prevent the antibiotic apocalypse by keeping last resort drugs out of the food supply.
                      "Good" Mozzie Virus Might Hold Key to Fighting Human Disease
                      Australian scientists have discovered a new virus carried by one of the country’s most common pest mosquitoes.
                      Non-Disease Proteins Kill Brain Cells
                      Scientists at the forefront of cutting-edge research into neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s have shown that the mere presence of protein aggregates may be as important as their form and identity in inducing cell death in brain tissue.
