UC San Diego chemists have developed a technology for monitoring the health of algae crops, one of world’s most promising sources for sustainable products being developed to counter global issues stemming from fossil fuel pollutants and product waste.
In three Science papers, UC San Diego and UC San Francisco researchers mapped out how hundreds of gene mutations involved in cancer affect the discrete groups of proteins that are the ultimate actors behind the disease. The work points the way to identifying new precision treatments.
International group of researchers identify new childhood genetic condition and a potential cure that can be delivered during pregnancy.
As scientific data sets become progressively larger, algorithms to process the data become more complex. Artificial Intelligence has emerged as a solution to efficiently analyze these massive data sets, and new computer processor types help speed up the work of AI algorithms.
Researchers describe how withdrawal from nicotine, methamphetamine and cocaine alters the functional architecture and patterns in the brains of mice, compared to control animals, a key to developing addiction treatments.
UC San Diego has announced a joint appointment with Los Alamos National Laboratory with the appointment of Senior Scientist Rodman Linn to a three-year position with the Halıcıoğlu Data Science Institute (HDSI). This is the first joint appointment program between Los Alamos and a UC campus.
According to scientists, a century of suppressing wildfires has created a dangerous stockpile of flammable vegetation on landscapes. This “fire fuel” has fed the megafires that put human life and property at risk and permanently destroy ecosystems.
Washington investigated whether these computing systems could be hacked and how that would affect a driver's ability to control their car. Now the team has received the Golden Goose Award from the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
Researchers can predict what syllables a bird will sing—and when it will sing them—by reading electrical signals in its brain, reports a new study from the University of California San Diego. The work is an early step toward building vocal prostheses for humans who have lost the ability to speak.
