The U.S. News and World Report Best Colleges Guidebook ranks the University of California San Diego the nation’s 8th best public university, up two spots compared to last year. The school also ranks 15th among the best colleges for veterans for participating in federal initiatives helping veterans…
A key part of UC San Diego’s proactive Return to Learn strategy to detect SARS CoV-2 (which causes COVID-19) and reduce transmission of the virus is wastewater monitoring.
With the aid of artificial intelligence, UC San Diego scientists have solved a long-standing puzzle in human gene activation. The discovery described in the journal Nature could be used to control gene activation in biotechnology and biomedical applications.
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.
Molecules known as tRNAs are often overlooked in study of disease processes. Researchers have now found that a mutation in a tRNA gene called n-Tr20—expressed only in the brain—can disrupt the landscape of entire cells, leading to chain reactions that alter brain function and behavior.
The University of California San Diego has been named the fourth best public university in the United States for the second consecutive year by the 2020 Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU).
Scientists have unraveled key mechanisms behind the mysteries of aging. They isolated two paths that cells travel during aging and engineered a new way to genetically program these aging routes. The researchers also identified a master circuit that guides the aging processes.
The NSF has awarded SDSC a $5 million grant to develop a high-performance resource for conducting artificial intelligence (AI) research across a wide swath of science and engineering domains.
UC San Diego and Deerfield Management created Poseidon Innovation to support researchers working to advance disease-curing therapeutics by funding early stage projects and expediting the drug-development cycle. Poseidon announces it is funding three researchers.
Researchers from Harvard University and the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston recently used the Comet supercomputer at the San Diego Supercomputer Center at the University of California San Diego to uncover the novel ways in which DNA prepares itself for repair.
