USTC Alumnus Fang Chong's Paper Is Chosen the Cover Article of Nature


        Dr. Fang Chong, a USTC alumnus, had his paper "Mapping GFP structure evolution during proton transfer with femtosecond Raman spectroscopy" published as the cover article in the November 12th issue of Nature. Dr. Fang is the first author of the article.


        The paper, authored by Fang Chong together with his supervisor Professor Richard Mathies and others, reports their findings related to the structural transformation of the green fluorescent protein in the course of proton transfer as revealed by femtosecond stimulated Raman spectroscopy. It was selected to be Nature's cover article for the significance of the findings.



Highlight of USTC

On May 11, the Nature Publishing Group released Nature Publishing Index 2010 China, remarking “a dramatic rise in the quality of research being published by China”. University of Science and Technology of China is ranked 3rd of TOP 10 Institutions in Index 2010 China.
