Shanghai Institutes for Biological Sciences (SIBS) of Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) is a leading research institution for life sciences in China. It was established on July 3, 1999, through structural reorganization and institutional reform of 8 former CAS institutes of biological sciences in Shanghai. Among which, some institutes had the history of academic tradition and scientific accumulations for more than 50 years, during which, landmark achievements were acquired – the world first synthetic Crystalline Bovine Insulin with relatively high activity and total synthesis of Yeast Alanine tRNA with the same natural chemical structure and complete biology activity, the discovery of China's first internationally recognized innovative anti-malaria drug Artemisinin, and the first successfully completed artificial parthenogenesis of the toad oocyte.
