Un-junking Junk DNA

November 12, 2013

A study led by researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine shines a new light on molecular tools our cells use to govern regulated gene expression.

Single-Cell Genome Sequencing Gets Better

November 12, 2013

Researchers led by bioengineers at the University of California, San Diego have generated the most complete genome sequences from single E. coli cells and individual neurons from the human brain. The breakthrough comes from a new single-cell genome sequencing technique that confines genome amplification to fluid-filled wells with a volume…

Free Lecture Series at UC San Diego Invites Community to Explore ‘The Good Life’ Jan. 22 to March 5

January 10, 2014

What is happiness? How do we pursue it? How should we pursue it? And are there times we should refuse to make the pursuit of happiness a life goal? A series of talks from scholars at the University of California, San Diego will answer these questions and more in a…

Global Regulator of mRNA Editing Found

February 6, 2014

An international team of researchers, led by scientists from the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine and Indiana University, have identified a protein that broadly regulates how genetic information transcribed from DNA to messenger RNA (mRNA) is processed and ultimately translated into the myriad of proteins necessary for…

The Mechanism of Short-Term Memory

April 14, 2014

Insel’s quote appeared in a National Institutes of Health (NIH) press release that described a newly published study of monkeys in the journal Science, where researchers for the first time found that in-sync large-scale brain waves affecting various regions of the brain hold memories of objects just viewed. “This study…

Too Many People, Not Enough Water – Now and 2700 Years Ago

November 10, 2014

The Assyrian Empire once dominated the ancient Near East. At the start of the 7th century BC, it was a mighty military machine and the largest empire the Old World had yet seen. But then, before the century was out, it had collapsed. Why? An international study now offers two…

Researchers create tunable photon-pair spectrum using room-temperature quantum optics silicon chip

December 15, 2014

A team of researchers from the University of California, San Diego have demonstrated a way to emit and control quantum light generated using a chip made from silicon—one of the most widely used materials for modern electronics.

GERD Study Offers Minimally Invasive Procedure at No Cost

September 21, 2015

Approximately 20 million Americans will experience some type of gastroesophageal reflux disease, or GERD, in their lives. In some cases, patients suffer resulting heart burn or acid regurgitation so severe that they require surgery to repair damage to their esophagus. A clinical trial at UC San Diego Health is using…
