UC San Diego-Human Longevity Inc. Agreement Seeks to Accelerate Medical Science

March 4, 2014

…to research and translate the potential of the human genome into novel and real treatments and therapies able to change and improve the human condition.

SDSC’s “Big Data” Expertise Aiding Genomics Research

March 20, 2012

The San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) at the University of California, San Diego, has in the last three years undergone a major reboot, remaking itself into a center of expertise on all aspects of “big data” research including genomics, one of the fastest growing areas of scientific study.

New Algorithm Reveals Extremely High Mutations Rates in Complex Genomic Regions

August 16, 2023

In a paper published this week in the journal Nature Methods, UC San Diego researchers shared a new UniAligner algorithm for comparing highly repetitive genomic regions.

DNA Day Features UC San Diego Faculty, Alumni Speakers

October 31, 2016

UC San Diego’s Computer Science and Engineering department and Illumina Inc. co-sponsored DNA Day 2016, a day-long workshop featuring talks and cutting-edge bioinformatics and genomics research, including several speakers with dual appointments in CSE and the UC San Diego School of Medicine.

GenomeSpace “Recipes” Help Biologists Interpret Genomic Data

January 20, 2016

…Medicine and collaborators developed GenomeSpace, a cloud-based, biologist-friendly platform that connects more than 20 bioinformatics software packages and resources for genomic data analysis. The team is now developing and crowdsourcing “recipes” — step-by-step workflows — to better enable non-programming researchers to interpret their genomic data. The work is described in…

Alumna, Incoming Student Share Passion for Computer Science and Basketball

April 16, 2015

…research interests include cancer genomics, genomic algorithms and population genetics. Marty has done bioinformatics internships at Thermo Fisher Scientific (and Life Technologies, which it acquired) as well as at Illumina, where she developed an “application to centralize the experience of gene exploration for researchers.” She has also done research with…

Biologists Pioneer First Method to Decode Gene Expression

August 12, 2019

Biologists have developed the first system for determining gene expression based on machine learning. Considered a type of Rosetta Stone, the new method leverages algorithms trained on a set of known plant genes. The method carries implications across biology, from drug discovery to plant breeding.

For Neurons, Where They Begin Isn’t Necessarily Where They End

April 20, 2022

Scientists at UC San Diego School of Medicine and Rady Children’s Institute of Genomic Medicine describe novel methods for inferring the movement of human brain cells during fetal development by studying healthy adult individuals who have recently passed away from natural causes.

New Grant Seeks to Fill Knowledge Gaps Regarding Spina Bifida

November 20, 2020

Researchers at UC San Diego School of Medicine and Rady Children’s Institute for Genomic Medicine have been awarded a five-year, $8.3 million grant from the National Institutes of Health to investigate the causes of spina bifida, the most common structural defect of the central nervous system.

Understanding a Protein’s Role in Familial Alzheimer’s Disease

November 14, 2013

Researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine have used genetic engineering of human induced pluripotent stem cells to specifically and precisely parse the roles of a key mutated protein in causing familial Alzheimer’s disease (AD), discovering that simple loss-of-function does not contribute to the inherited form…
