XSEDE13 Conference to Devote Full Day to Biosciences

May 9, 2013

A panel of distinguished experts will discuss the role of computation and data analytics in supporting discovery throughout the biological sciences when XSEDE13 – the annual conference focusing on computer science, education, outreach, software, and technology – is held July 22-25 in San Diego.

Boosting the Powers of Genomic Science

April 25, 2013

In a pair of papers published in PLOS Genetics, two diverse teams of scientists, both headed by researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine, describe novel statistical models that more broadly and deeply identify associations between bits of sequenced DNA called single nucleotide polymorphisms or SNPs…

Electrical Engineer Named MIT Technology Review Innovator Under 35

September 15, 2023

Yatish Turakhia, an assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering at the University of California San Diego Jacobs School of Engineering, has been named an MIT Technology Review Innovator Under 35. He was recognized in the Computing category for developing software tools to track and ma

Cancer Avatars for Personalized Medicine

May 21, 2014

Researchers at University of California, San Diego School of Medicine and Moores Cancer Center have used computer simulations of cancer cells – cancer avatars – to identify drugs most likely to kill cancer cells isolated from patients’ brain tumors.

Long-Reads and Powerful Algorithms Identify “Invisible” Microbes

January 3, 2022

Researchers have shown that highly accurate, long-read genomic sequencing technology (HiFi), combined with advanced algorithms, can differentiate between nearly identical organisms, allowing researchers to more completely catalogue microbial communities.

May 14, 2015

…Across Nation to Co-Author Genomics Research Paper Stephanie Mel, a teaching professor in the Division of Biological Sciences, designed and taught a new biology course called “Research Explorations in Genomics” to allow UC San Diego undergraduates to conduct original research in a classroom setting while becoming co-authors in a peer‐reviewed…

UC San Diego, UC San Francisco Launch New Cancer Cell Mapping Initiative

January 29, 2015

Researchers from the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine and University of California, San Francisco, with support from a diverse team of collaborators, have launched an ambitious new project – dubbed the Cancer Cell Map Initiative or CCMI – to determine how all of the components of a…

Genomic Study Revealing Among Diverse Populations with Inherited Retinal Disease

October 19, 2021

An international team of researchers has broadened and deepened understanding of how inherited retinal dystrophies (IRDs) affect different populations of people and, in the process, have identified new gene variants that may cause the diseases.

3D “Assembloid” Shows How SARS-CoV-2 Infects Brain Cells

July 16, 2021

Researchers at UC San Diego School of Medicine and Rady Children’s Institute for Genomic Medicine have produced a stem cell model that demonstrates a potential route of entry of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, into the human brain.

Personality Traits and Psychiatric Disorders Linked to Specific Genomic Locations

December 8, 2016

A meta-analysis of genome-wide association studies (GWAS) has identified six loci or regions of the human genome that are significantly linked to personality traits, report researchers at University of California San Diego School of Medicine in this week’s advance online publication of Nature Genetics. The findings also show correlations with…
