Enzymes Can’t Tell Artificial DNA From the Real Thing

December 13, 2023

Researchers from UC San Diego have come one step closer to unlocking the potential of synthetic DNA, which could help scientists develop never-before-seen proteins in the lab.

NBT: Intro video of ‘Control-independent mosaic single nucleotide variant detection with DeepMosaic’

January 2, 2023

In this scientific presentation, UC San Diego researchers describe using machine learning to train an artificial neural network to spot tiny mutations in genetic sequences better and faster than human eyes.

Engineers Develop a New Biosensor Chip for Detecting DNA Mutations

June 14, 2016

Bioengineers at the University of California, San Diego have developed an electrical graphene chip capable of detecting mutations in DNA. Researchers say the technology could one day be used in various medical applications such as blood-based tests for early cancer screening, monitoring disease biomarkers and real-time detection of viral and…

Hope for Our Zebra

May 1, 2023

When alumni Michaelle Jinette and Kevin Witt’s fourth son Tristan was diagnosed with the rare KCNH1 genetic mutation, the couple raised money, collaborated with scientific partners, and initiated rare disease research on behalf of their child and the 50 others like him in the world.

Biosensor Chip Detects Single Nucleotide Polymorphism Wirelessly and With Higher Sensitivity

July 9, 2018

…known as a single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) and wirelessly send the results in real time to an electronic device. The chip is at least 1,000 times more sensitive at detecting an SNP than current technology. The advance could lead to cheaper, faster and portable biosensors for early detection of genetic…

New Therapeutic Target Identified for ALS and Frontotemporal Degeneration

November 8, 2013

A team of scientists led by researchers from the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine and Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research have identified a novel therapeutic approach for the most frequent genetic cause of ALS, a disorder of the regions of the brain and spinal cord that control…

Chemists Devise a New, Versatile Way to Tag RNA

September 23, 2015

Chemists have devised a versatile way to attach handles and tags to RNA so that the tiny molecules can be detected and traced within cells or selectively pulled from a complex mixture of molecules.

Researchers Assemble the First Complete Human Genome

March 31, 2022

An international research team, including University of California San Diego computer scientists, has published the first complete genome. The work was done by the Telomere to Telomere (T2T) consortium, and six papers describing the project will be published April 1 in a special edition of Science.

Supercomputers Unlock Reproductive Mysteries of Viruses and Life

March 19, 2020

Scientists, including UC San Diego researchers, recently relied on supercomputer simulations to better understand the reproductive mysteries of viruses and DNA.
