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.
Is the U.S. heading toward a second civil war? Will we stop global warming before it is too late? Questions like these will be explored at the University of California San Diego’s School of Global Policy and Strategy's 30th anniversary celebration April 26-27.
U.S. News & World Report today released its 2020 guidebook that ranks the nation’s top graduate programs and professional schools, giving high marks to UC San Diego’s innovative programs.
In January 2019, an international team of scientists working off the tip of southern Chile got their first live look at what might be a new species of killer whale. Called Type D, the whales were previously known only from a strandings, fisherman stories, and tourist photos.
A new, fast coastal research vessel will join the fleet of ships managed by Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California San Diego thanks to a philanthropic initiative that raised more than $1.2 million in honor of the late Dr. J. Robert Beyster, founder of Science Application
New research reveals that foreign honey bees often account for more than 90 percent of pollinators observed visiting flowers in San Diego, a global biodiversity hotspot. The monopoly may strongly affect species that are foundational to the stability of the region’s plant-pollinator interactions.
The National Academy of Engineering (NAE) has honored atmospheric chemist Kimberly Prather of the University of California San Diego with membership to its prestigious ranks.
A recently published study by an international team of researchers has shed new light on how and why a particular type of sea fog forms, using detailed supercomputer simulations to provide more accurate predictions of its occurrence and patterns to help reduce the number of maritime mishaps.
Using CRISPR, researchers developed a way to suppress insects, including those that ravage crops and transmit deadly diseases. The technology alters genes for sex determination and fertility. When eggs are introduced, only sterile males emerge, resulting in a low-cost method of controlling pests.
UC San Diego scientists have been granted $2 million to develop new methods for manufacturing products based on algae. Biologist Stephen Mayfield will lead efforts to develop novel platforms to produce biologically based monomers that will be used to manufacture renewable and biodegradable products.
