However, we have a rule about Course Waiver. Students who can meet one of the conditions can apply for course waiver and will get 6 credits directly (except Academic Morality and Writing Norms).A. Providing a certificate of HSK Level 3;B. Got a bachelor’s degree or master’s degree which are taught in Chinese.Students who apply for the course waiver need to contact Ms. Season (dingdanni@ucas.ac.cn) before the February 28th. 5.2 Professional courses—Degree Courses and Non-degree CoursesThe professional courses can be classified as one of two types: Degree Courses and Non-degree Courses. This final decision of course classification for each student is left to the supervisor, as s/he is in the best position to assess the courses for the graduate programs. If students find the professional courses are totally not related to his/her major and will not help the research for PhD, then these courses can be seen as Non-degree Courses (Optional Courses). If the professional courses will help the research for PhD, then they should be Degree Courses (Compulsory Courses). This classification of one course will be shown on the course selection form and the final score sheet. All the students have two weeks to attend the professional classes and choose them. 5.3 Optional courses—Non-degree CoursesAll the optional courses are non-degree courses.Rules about courses resultsStudents should drop out of the university under one of the following circumstances:1、Master candidates who fail two degree courses within one semester and still fail one after relearning the courses, or fail three degree courses during the school years.2、PhD candidates who fail one degree course and still fail after relearning the course, or fail two courses during their school years.The Public compulsory courses are all Degree courses.Contact InformationEducation Coordinator for Professional Courses:Phone: 010-82680563, Ms. SophieE-mail: hutian@ucas.ac.cn Education Coordinator for Public compulsory courses:Phone: 010-82680986, Ms. SeasonE-mail: dingdanni@ucas.ac.cn            2021-2022学年春季和夏季学期校历年度    year2022 春季学期 ( Spring Semester) 2022夏季学期(Summer Semester) 月份   month二月(Feb)三月(Mar)四月(Apr)五月(May)六月(Jun)六月(Jun)七月(Jul)周次   week12345678910111213141516I(17)II(18)III(19)IV(20)星期一(Mon)2128714212841118252916233061320274星期二(Tue)22181522295清明节12192631017243171421285星期三(Wed)232916233061320274111825181522296星期四(Thu)2431017243171421285121926291623307星期五(Fri)2541118251815222961320273端午节10172418星期六(Sat)265121926291623307142128411182529星期日(Sun)27613202731017241劳动节81522295121926310  Course title: Plant Physiology and EcologyInstructor: Associate Prof. Laiye QuCourse type: LectureCourse Assessment:NoneGrading Policy:Registration (17% of the final score)one report (50% of the final score)one quiz (33% of the final score)Course Prerequisites:NoneCatalog Description:This course will introduce the plant physiological mechanisms that underlie ecological observation under the changing environment.

Conservation Biology was established in mid-1990s in the United States of America, and it has fully grown into a main stream science since its’ born. In this course, the professor will start with the lecture, The Pandora’s Box: Zoonosis and Conservation, to illustrate the emerging and reemerging of pandemic disease, particularly zoonosis- the wild animal human share disease and its impacts on human society, taking the outbreak of COVID-19 pneumonia as an example to shed lights on the new challenge in Conservation Biology. Then the instructor will give a briefly review of human civilization, followed by introducing the new concepts such as public goods, consumerism, and consumer behavior in modern society, and the professor will emphasize the needs of rethinking about the doctrines in the master piece of philosophy, Tao Te Ching, and social norms. Then the professor will talk about the history, scope and missions as well as theoretic frames and practice measures of Conservation Biology. In the following lectures, the professor will present the principles, methods and characteristics of Conservation Biology, which now is transforming into a new science—Conservation Sciences. Dr. Liu will give an introduction to experimental design and data analyses in conservation with computer practice in the classroom. Species diversity is the core of biodiversity. The professor will introduce the concept of species in evolution, the famous question in science: “How many species are there on Earth?”, plus the Tree of Life, then the professor will elaborate the speciation and extinction of species and the last effort of reviving an extinct species—the de-extinction protocol. Global Change is important issue and it is also a disputing issue. The professor will trace the issue and talk about its impacts on conservation with examples form the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau and the arctic. Plausible mitigation measures of the impacts of global change will be given. The professor will outline the mega biodiversity countries, biodiversity hot spots, global vs. China’s biomes. The professor will also introduce the diverse landscapes, the sharply contrasting climate types, different habitats and rich fauna and flora in the country. Dr. Liu will talk about the conservation of primates with stories of social behavior of the Sichuan snub-nosed monkey. The professor will talk about the threatened wild species and degraded natural ecosystems in the country due to intensified human activities, land-cover change, environmental pollution, growing of human population plus the influence of global change. The professor will talk the legend of giant panda as an example of flagship species and talk about the down-listing of giant panda in China’s Red List of Biodiversity in 2016, at same time introduce the IUCN Red List Criteria for Endangered Species and China’s Red List of Vertebrate, with exercise in assessing species using the IUCN Red List Criteria for Endangered Species. The professor will elaborate the biodiversity relevant international treaties like Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), Convention on International Trade of Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES), which provide the international law environment for conservation and the country ‘s endeavor in implementation its commitments. Besides to conduct basic research in classifying, inventorying and monitoring biodiversity, the scientists in country also carried out conservation researches to back up the commitments of the government to implementation of CBD and CITES, such as rescuing endangered species, reforesting the mountains and deserts, as well as protecting habitat of wild species and maintaining ecosystem functioning and services. All these be covered in the course. Therefore, while reviewing the current development of Conservation Biology in the world, the professor will give case studies of China’s endemic species; represent biomes and conservation practice to enrich the contents of course. Small population is a real problem in conservation, with practice in computer simulation, the students will understand the genetic problems in small populations. In situ and ex situ conservation are major approaches in preserving biodiversity. The professor will explain why should we carry out ex situ conservation and how to carry out it, with examples of ex situ conservation from Saudi Arabia and from China. The professor will introduce the translocation of endangered species and reintroduction of locally extinct species. The professor will introduce the protected areas (PAs) such as, natural reserves, wildlife refuge, national parks, nature parks, World Natural Heritage Sites, as well as the “Green for Grain”, “Green for Grass” projects in China as examples of in situ conservation, and will review the “Half Earth” initiative and the development and analyze the achievements and shortfalls in management of PAs.  According to the new requirement of the UCAS in 2020, the professors are required to add contents about the scientific reading to improve the reading comprehensive ability of the students of the course. Reading Skills for Students in Conservation Science will be added to the course in four lectures with three chapters in each lecture. "Inverted Classroom". The part of the student oral presentations in the course lectures serve as "Inverted Classroom". Such a practice is a rearrangement of lectures to student presentations, shifting the power of learning to students. Each student in the course will have time to focus more on proactive project-based learning, working together to address localization or globalization challenges and other real-world issues to understand conservation. The classroom is thus inverted that requires students to work independently before the student oral presentations, to access materials in library, to read enhanced e-books, to search for reference and to discuss with other students on the Internet. The professor and Teaching Assistant will guide the student presentation and will lead corresponding discussion in the inverted classroom. The professor and Teaching Assistant will communicate with everyone in the classroom through Internet. In the Inverted Classroom, students independently worked out plan for learning and presentation of knowledge, while The professor and Teaching Assistant will adopt teaching and collaboration methods to meet the needs of students and facilitate their personalized learning and presentation. The goal of student presentation in Inverted Classroom is to let students learn more real know-how from their thesis and future career through practice. Schedule of the courseLecture*Contents1The

Epigenetics is the study of heritable changes in gene expression that do not change DNA sequence. RNA silencing is a general regulation mechanism in eukaryotes that regulates gene expression by 20-30 nt sRNAs in transcription or post-transcription levels. In this Epigenetics, we will introduce how DNA methylation, histone modification, chromatin remodeling, long non-coding RNAs and RNA modification regulate gene expression in eukaryotes. In the second part, we will study RNA silencing on sRNA generation, amplification, loading, action, turnover, and function. The most popular technologies used in Epigenetic studies and non-coding RNAs will also be discussed.This course not only will provide students the basic concepts of RNA silencing and Epigenetics, but also will provide student the requisite methods in these two fields. At the same time, we will share the students a story in RNA silencing or Epigenetic fields in each class. These stories include but not limit to: Transgenic technology, Cross-kingdom RNA silencing, anti-viral function of RNA silencing, X-inactivation, Transgenerational epigenetic inheritance, Imprinting, disease, Honey bee epigenome, and flowing. After the course, the students should understand the biogenesis and function of small RNAs, lncRNAs, the difference between genetic and epigenetic regulation and how to study projects relate to Epigenetics and RNA silencing.Schedule of the coursesectionContentHours1Introduction to Epigenetics and RNA silencingClass teaching 3h+After class discussion and Quiz 1h2Histone modification / X-inactivationClass teaching 3h+After class discussion and Quiz 1h3Histone variation / Epigenetics regulation in diseaseClass teaching 3h+After class discussion and Quiz 1h4Chromatin remodeling / Epigenetics in floweringClass teaching 3h+After class discussion and Quiz 1h5DNA methylation-establishment and maintenance / ImprintingClass teaching 3h+After class discussion and Quiz 1h6DNA demethylation / Molecular tools to study DNA methylationClass teaching 3h+After class discussion and Quiz 1h7Transgenerational epigenetic inheritance / Honey bee epigenomeClass teaching 3h+After class discussion and Quiz 1h8sRNA processing / Genetic engineeringClass teaching 3h+After class discussion and Quiz 1h9sRNA amplification and loading / RNA silencing function in plant immunity to virusClass teaching 3h+After class discussion and Quiz 1h10Target recognition and action of sRNAs / Popular tools to study RNAiClass teaching 3h+After class discussion and Quiz 1h11The modification and degradation of sRNAs / Animal virus and RNA silencingClass teaching 3h+After class discussion and Quiz 1h12The movement of RNA silencing / Cross-kingdom RNAiClass teaching 3h+After class discussion and Quiz 1h13The application of RNA silencing in research, human health and crop productionClass teaching 3h+After class discussion and Quiz 1h14Long non-coding RNA, Circular RNA and RNA modificationsClass teaching 3h+After class discussion and Quiz 1h15Bioinformatics tools to study RNA silencing and EpigeneticClass teaching 3h+After class discussion and Quiz 1hTotal 60 Textbook and any related course material:C.

Unfortunately, the utilization efficiency is still pretty low, which dramatically limits the wide use of solar energy. Nanotechnology may afford a solution to this. Thus, the major goal of this course is to provide the students general concepts and state-of-the-art developments in the field of nanotechnology for solar energy utilization. The course begins with a brief introduction of fundamentals of nanotechnology and solar energy. Then photon (light) management is discussed in detail, followed by a thorough description of conversion of light into electric energy (photovoltaics) and chemical energy (artificial photosynthesis). Detailed discussion of environmental remedy is covered too. Other applications such as thermoelectricity and thermochemistry are presented in the final session.Schedule of the courseSectionContentHours1Chapter 1.

In plate tectonics, the lithosphere — Earth's strong, rigid outermost shell—is broken into many tectonic plates, which lie on top of the weaker, ductile asthenosphere. Due to the convection of the asthenosphere, the plates move relative to each other and interact along their boundaries, where they converge, diverge, or slip past one another. These interactions generate many phenomena, such as mountain building, large continents, wide and deep oceans, volcanoes and earthquakes. To begin our explanation of the key elements of plate tectonics theory, we will first learn about the physical and chemical structures of the earth, types of plate boundaries, subduction zones and other special locations on plates. We will see how continents break up, how they collide, what makes plates move, and their relationships with petrology, paleomagnetism and geodynamics.We will then introduce the application of plate tectonics on Himalayan-Tibetan Orogen. The India-Eurasia collision is the most significant geological event throughout the Phanerozoic and eventually created the youngest and most spectacular Himalaya-Tibetan Orogen on Earth. During the continental collision, Indian continental lithosphere began to subduct beneath Eurasian continent and further induced large-scale deformation, magmatism and metamorphism. More importantly, the continental collision induced rapid uplift of the Himalaya-Tibetan Plateau. The uplift of the large and high elevations (>5000m) of the Tibetan Plateau has not only affected regional geomorphology and geographical environments of Asia, but also impacted on regional or even global climate change. Therefore, the Himalayan-Tibetan orogen provides an ideal natural laboratory to investigate the mountain building process in general.
