Chemists have discovered that tiny particulate matter called aerosols lofted into the atmosphere by sea spray and the bursting of bubbles at the ocean’s surface are chemically altered by the presence of biological activity.
A Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California San Diego-led research team discovered for the first time that a common marine sponge hosts bacteria that specialize in the production of toxic compounds nearly identical to man-made fire retardants.
Scientists at the Center for Marine Biotechnology and Biomedicine at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California San Diego have contributed to a new study, published May 1 in in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, that asks the question: are there any…
The next installment of the UC San Diego series, Evening with an Entrepreneur, will feature scientist, inventor, serial entrepreneur, innovator, and long-time UC San Diego supporter, Dr. Tina Nova.
