Addressing concerns about gene-drive releases in the wild, UC San Diego scientists and their colleagues have developed two new genetic systems that halt or eliminate gene drives after release. The details are published in the journal Molecular Cell.
Multi-university collaboration to jointly develop a new science gateway allowing researchers to study the behavior of new and existing materials using X-ray diffraction.
Scientists at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California San Diego have received an award from the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to study low cloud “hot-spots,” one of the largest uncertainties in climate change models and predictions.
Scientists at UC San Diego have discovered a new anode material that enables lithium-ion batteries to be safely recharged within minutes for thousands of cycles. It is promising for commercial applications where both high energy density and high power are desired.
The San Diego Supercomputer Center at UC San Diego, the University of Washington, and UC Berkeley have entered production operations of the National Science Foundation-funded CloudBank program, which aims to simplify the use of public clouds across computer science research and education.
Physics researchers at UC San Diego successfully used machine learning techniques and supercomputer simulations to develop a new model for plasma turbulence o better understand its self-organization process.
The National Science Foundation has renewed funding for OpenTopography, a science gateway that provides online access to high-resolution topography data and processing tools to advance research and education in areas ranging from earthquake geology to ecology and hydrology.
What are the boundaries of natural selection? Research published in PNAS shows that even natural selection has a tough time optimizing performance simultaneously across multiple components of the cell. They call the concept "evolutionary stalling."
One way to cut back on deforestation in the Amazon rainforest – and help in the global fight against climate change – is to grant more of Brazil’s indigenous communities full property rights to tribal lands. This policy focus is suggested by the findings of a new PNAS study.
Researchers recently used Comet at the San Diego Supercomputer Center at UC San Diego to examine impacts of both regional and global changes affecting the Chesapeake Bay.
