A Cell Press partner journal
See the unseen. Change the unchanged.
The Innovation ¡ª published by Cell Press in partnership with members of the Youth
Innovation Promotion Association (YIPA),a part of the Chinese Academy of
Sciences¡ªis a new broad-scope, open access journal publishing basic and applied
research that has impact for the benefit of society.
On the cover: On the cover: Vivid life is everywhere in this blue planet. In this cover, four seasons are illustrated with diverse lives that are the traces of entire ecosystem circle. What a natural harmony! From birth to death, each species has its own life cycle and innate mechanisms decoded and to be decoded by scientists. The destiny of life cycle can be revealed by genome within a cell as the core of living beings. The more scientific discoveries about the core, the higher possibilities to disclose the truth of life. For sustainable development of our planet, it is important to build up one co-existing ecosystem for all living things.

Graphical abstract

Oceanic transform faults (TFs) are commonly viewed as single, narrow strike-slip seismic faults that offset two mid-ocean ridge segments. However, broad zones of complex deformation are ubiquitous at TFs. Here, we propose a new conceptual model for the progressive deformation within broad zones at oceanic TFs through detailed morphological, seismic, and stress analyses. We argue that, under across-transform extension due to a change in plate motion, plate deformation occurs first along high-angle transtensional faults (TTFs) within the transform valleys.
