A team of chemists and biochemists at UC San Diego used a combination of computational simulations and experiments to deepen understanding of the latest genome editing technology.
Researchers at the University of Rhode Island (URI) used the San Diego Supercomputer Center’s 'Comet' supercomputer to show that high-performance computer modeling can accurately simulate tsunamis from volcanic events.
Netherton syndrome is exacerbated by the presence of Staphylococcus aureus and Staphylococcus epidermidis living on human skin report University of California San Diego School of Medicine researchers.
In coastal communities prone to hurricanes, people typically turn to engineered solutions for protection: levees, sea walls and the like. But a natural buffer in the form of wetlands may be the more cost-effective solution, says the most comprehensive study of its sort to date.
An international team of scientists, led by UC San Diego researchers, has developed a new, multi-sensor tool that measures subtle changes in multiple sclerosis patients, allowing physicians to more frequently and more quickly respond to changes in symptoms or patient condition.
A comparison of normal and germ-free mice revealed that as much as 70 percent of a mouse’s gut chemistry is determined by its gut microbiome. Even in distant organs, such as the uterus or the brain, approximately 20 percent of molecules were different in the mice with gut microbes.
Scientists work to understand circadian rhythms at the molecular level to help develop innovative therapies for fixing biological clock dysfunctions caused by inherited conditions, modern habits, shift working or aging.
Engineers have created light-based technology that can detect biological substances with a molecular mass more than two orders of magnitude smaller than previously possible. The work could lead to the development of ultra-sensitive devices for quickly detecting pathogens in blood.
A team of researchers from the University of California San Diego and the University of Pittsburgh offers a new approach for developing treatments for pandemic Influenza A (pH1N1).
A new study at UC San Diego, published February 11, 2020, found that exposure to heatwaves during the last week of pregnancy was strongly linked to an increased risk of preterm delivery – the hotter the temperature or the longer the heatwave, the greater the risk.
