A team of researchers at the University of California San Diego has found that abnormally wet conditions increase the risk of cough, fever, and diarrhea in children under five years old in many humid subtropical regions of the globe.
UC San Diego is launching its first online graduate degree program this fall to help meet the demand for data scientists. Applications for the new Master of Data Science Online program are now open.
Scientists have identified a molecule released from the fruit fly gut after a protein-rich meal that switches their focus from eating to courtship. The discovery of Dh31, a type of chemical messenger, opens the door to unexplored areas of gut-to-brain communication.
UC San Diego researchers have identified a previously unrecognized key player in cancer evolution: clusters of mutations occurring at certain regions of the genome. These mutation clusters contribute to the progression of about 10% of human cancers and can be used to predict patient survival.
