Biologists have provided the first example of cargo within bacteriophage cells transiting along treadmill-like structures. The discovery demonstrates that bacteria have more in common with sophisticated human cells than previously believed.
UC San Diego Health has expanded north for primary care options with the opening of our Encinitas clinic, which will offer pediatrics, family medicine and Express Care.
Nanoengineers at UC San Diego have developed new deep learning models that can accurately predict the properties of molecules and crystals. They can enable researchers to rapidly scan the nearly-infinite universe of compounds to discover potentially transformative materials for various applications.
A newly-published study in Scientific Reports shows that plastic debris less than 5 millimeters across, known as microplastic, is common from the surface to the seafloor. It may also be entering marine food webs, both at the surface and in the deep.
The San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) at the University of California San Diego today announced the appointment of Michael Zentner as director of Sustainable Scientific Software, effective immediately.
Researchers discovered what makes the teeth of deep-sea dragonfish transparent. This adaptation, which camouflages dragonfish from prey, results from the teeth having an unusually crystalline nanostructure mixed with amorphous regions. The findings could provide bioinspiration for transparent cerami
Slow-evolving elephant shark reveals hormonal adaptation and offers new insights into human physiology.
According to a release issued in April by Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech), a serendipitous discovery by graduate student Dylan T. Christiansen has led to materials that quickly change color from completely clear to a range of vibrant hues – and back again.
