University of California and Princeton scientists have been collaborating on a computational astrophysics project to learn more about the recent discovery of a black hole which sits in the middle of a galaxy called Messier 87 (M87), approximately 55 million light years from Earth.
The Health Cyberinfrastructure (CI) Division of the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) at the University of California San Diego, has partnered with Microsoft Azure Cloud Services (Azure) to expand its portfolio of cloud services.
A team of scientists at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California San Diego and the J. Craig Venter Institute (JCVI) has developed a new way to produce kainic acid, a natural seaweed neurochemical and powerful reagent used in brain research.
In the ongoing effort to decarbonize U.S. energy production, there is one energy source that often attracts great controversy. Nuclear power, for a number of reasons, including the association between radiation and cancer, the general public has long felt a significant dread about it.
UC San Diego researchers have improved their recycling process that regenerates degraded cathodes from spent lithium-ion batteries. The new process is safer and uses less energy than their previous method in restoring cathodes to their original capacity and cycle performance.
The Institute for Practical Ethics welcomes environmental journalist Emma Marris for a unique and optimistic talk about new methods in conservation during Earth Month celebrations, the second keynote address for the new campus institute.
A series of tests conducted over several years by UC San Diego scientists have shown for the first time that the pesticide Sivanto could pose a range of threats to honey bees depending on seasonality, bee age and use in combination with common chemicals such as fungicides.
Scientists developed a new version of a gene drive that spreads favorable genetic variants, also known as “alleles,” throughout a population. The new “allelic drive” is equipped with a guide RNA that directs CRISPR to cut undesired variants of a gene and replace them with a preferred version.
The CIPRES science gateway, based at the San Diego Supercomputer Center at UC San Diego, has been awarded a one-year Internet2 grant giving researchers access to the AWS Cloud.
