A multidisciplinary team has found the underlying mechanisms controlling the size of cells. The researchers found that “the adder,” a function that guides cells to grow by a fixed added size from birth to division, is controlled by specific proteins that accumulate to a specific threshold.
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.
With support from the Heising-Simons Foundation, the Division of Physical Sciences at UC San Diego has established the Margaret Burbidge Visiting Professorship. It’s part of an effort to bring eminent female physicists to the university for collaborative research interactions.
An international team of scientists, including researchers from the University of California San Diego, report in the science journal Nature that they observed the decay of Xenon-124 atoms for the first time.
Chemistry & Biochemistry researchers at UC San Diego ventured into the tiny atomic world of protein molecules within cells with a technological approach never before applied. Their findings offer other researchers a new way to do their work.
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.
Using the Comet supercomputer at the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) at UC San Diego, campus researchers have demonstrated they can efficiently analyze more than 1,000 EEG 128-channel high-density data sets via the new Open EEGLAB Portal running on SDSC’s Neuroscience Gateway.
