The National Science Foundation awards two SDSC researchers funding to organize COVID-19 information into a knowledge network that integrates health, pathogen, and environmental data to track cases across greater San Diego.
South Korea is a standout in the current battle against COVID-19, largely due to its widespread testing and contact tracing; however, key to its innovation is publicly disclosing detailed information on the individuals who test positive for COVID-19.
UC San Diego researchers have ported the popular UniFrac microbiome tool to graphic processing units (GPUs) to increase the acceleration and accuracy of scientific discovery including urgently needed COVID-19 research.
The National Institutes of Health has renewed its commitment to the Adolescent Brain Cognitive Development (ABCD) Study, the largest long-term study of brain development and child health ever conducted in the United States. The awards to UC San Diego total just over $60 million.
Measures to slow the spread of the coronavirus have reduced the demand for fuel and slashed oil prices. Global emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2), the chief long-term cause of climate warming, have slid perhaps by one-fifth, but can we expect COVID-19 to create lasting change for the planet?
UC San Diego researchers recently created a pharmacophore model and conducted data mining of the conformational database of FDA-approved drugs that identifies 64 compounds as potential inhibitors of the COVID-19 protease.
Over 90 bipartisan, high-level former government officials and experts in the U.S.-China relationship released a joint statement today urging cooperation between the United States and China in a much-needed effort to combat the COVID-19 global health crisis.
Human-centered design can help San Diego address the COVID-19 pandemic and put our city on course to be more sustainable, too. That’s the basic premise of the 2020 edition of the city-wide design challenge from UC San Diego’s Design Lab called “Design for San Diego,” or D4SD for short.
Farmers in California’s Central Valley may be not known for their love of government regulations, but those same growers have seen a boost in the productivity of their high-value crops – and greater earnings – as a result of the Golden State’s strict air pollution controls.
Scientists, including UC San Diego researchers, recently relied on supercomputer simulations to better understand the reproductive mysteries of viruses and DNA.
