The San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) at UC San Diego has been awarded a five-year grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) worth $10 million to deploy Expanse, a new supercomputer designed to advance research that is increasingly dependent upon heterogeneous and distributed resources.
Scientists may come one step closer to understanding the conditions of the universe moments after its inception, thanks to a future commitment of $20 million made by the Simons Foundation.
UC San Diego will launch a payload of stem cell-derived human brain organoids to the International Space Station. Researchers will document how these “mini brains” organize into the beginnings of a functional brain with implications for the future of human life in space.
UC San Diego chemists offer new system to ease the synthesis and evaluation of the algorithms, the chemistry and the technology needed to predict the bound poses of ligands within a targeted protein—a necessity for designing new drugs.
Researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology are using supercomputers and machine learning techniques to find ways to build more capable capacitors that store more energy.
New partnership joins university's data science hub with leading communications firm collaborating on establishing educational and research connections as well as increased opportunities for students
A new study led by UC Riverside Researcher Christodoulos Kyriakopoulos provides seismologists with a new understanding of a complex set of faults that has the potential to impact the lives of millions of people in the Southwestern U.S. and Mexico.
Inspired by ideas from the physics of phase transitions and polymer physics, UC San Diego researchers set out specifically to determine the organization of DNA inside the nucleus of a living cell. The findings of their study suggest that the phase state of the genomic DNA is “just right”—a gel…
UC San Diego mechanical and aerospace engineering graduate student Tao Wang recently demonstrated how an extremely strong magnetic field, similar to that on the surface of a neutron star, can be not only generated but also detected using an x-ray laser inside a solid material.
UC San Diego scientists adopt astronomy’s adaptive optics to correct microscope images for the scattering of light that occurs in brain tissue.
