Scientists thought they knew everything there was to know about how and why bacterial cells moved around, but back-to-back articles in Nature by UC San Diego’s Terence Hwa reveal how little they understood bacteria movement en masse.
Researchers from UC San Diego and Rhodes College find direct evidence for the first time of the role of galactic winds in creating the circumgalactic medium.
UC San Diego Theoretical Physicist Max Di Ventra is catching the next wave of cutting-edge AI with an alternative platform he calls “memcomputing,” which doesn’t require quantum capabilities.
Space. The proverbial final frontier. “These are the voyages” of new centenarian and renowned astronomer Margaret Burbidge. Her mission to understand the stuff stars are made of has taken her boldly where no woman has gone before …
Researchers at the University of California San Diego figured out a way to combine FDA-approved ultrasound with engineered glass particles to boost the effectiveness of immunotherapy in glioblastomas.
UC San Diego neurophysics research supplies a blueprint for a future generation of electrode sensors that utilizes existing yet nontraditional materials and fabrication procedures to record electrical signals from every neuron in the cortex of the brain—at the same time.
UC San Diego biochemists discovered a large-scale molecular movement associated with RNA catalysis that provides evidence for the origin of RNA splicing and its role in the diversity of life on Earth.
UC San Diego chemists offer new system to ease the synthesis and evaluation of the algorithms, the chemistry and the technology needed to predict the bound poses of ligands within a targeted protein—a necessity for designing new drugs.
Inspired by ideas from the physics of phase transitions and polymer physics, UC San Diego researchers set out specifically to determine the organization of DNA inside the nucleus of a living cell. The findings of their study suggest that the phase state of the genomic DNA is “just right”—a gel…
UC San Diego scientists adopt astronomy’s adaptive optics to correct microscope images for the scattering of light that occurs in brain tissue.
