Bioinformatics Breakthrough: High Quality Transcriptome from as Few as Fifty Cells

October 24, 2013

Bioengineers from the University of California, San Diego have created a new method for analyzing RNA transcripts from samples of 50 to 100 cells. The approach could be used to develop inexpensive and rapid methods for diagnosing cancers at early stages, as well as better tools for forensics, drug discovery…

Zika Virus Strips Immune Cells of their Identity

September 10, 2018

Macrophages are immune cells that are supposed to protect the body from infection by viruses and bacteria. Yet Zika virus preferentially infects these cells. Researchers at University of California San Diego School of Medicine have now unraveled how the virus shuts down the genes that make macrophages function as immune…

Scientists Assemble a Biological Clock in a Test Tube to Study How it Works

October 8, 2021

As reported in Science, researchers from three UC campuses reconstituted the circadian clock of cyanobacteria in a test tube, enabling them to study rhythmic interactions of clock proteins in real time and understand how these interactions enable the clock to exert control over gene expression.

Novel Autism Mouse Model Based on an Epigenetic Gene Developed

January 30, 2019

In a study published January 17, 2019 in Translational Psychiatry, researchers at University of California San Diego School of Medicine describe how, in a novel mouse model, epigenetic regulation negatively impacts a downstream gene specifically involved in neurodevelopment and associated behaviors.
