A UCSC team obtained an x-ray ‘snapshot’ of a novel protein structure with potential applications in biomedicine and materials science
Healthy coastal wetlands can help combat climate change by absorbing large amounts of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and storing it for the long term. A large interdisciplinary team is now working to help the wetlands maximize their impact.
UC Santa Cruz researchers are analyzing a mammoth tusk that was found 10,000 feet under the sea, leading to “an ‘Indiana Jones’ mixed with ‘Jurassic Park’ moment.”
Chemistry and biochemistry professors Shaowei Chen and Yat Li, former chemistry graduate student Yichuan Ling, and astronomy and astrophysics scientists Jonathan Fortney, Garth Illingworth, and Rychard Bouwens were among the most cited researchers of 2021.
UC Santa Cruz Earth Sciences alum Damon Brown knew the value of preservation. As a geologist, he used knowledge of the past to build a better future, studying the causes of climate change and identifying new, sustainable energy sources. With that kind of long-term thinking in mind, he and his wife Sarah, a fellow geologist, […]
UC Santa Cruz has joined the University of California Drug Discovery Consortium (UC DDC), a cross-campus initiative aimed at building a drug discovery community that actively promotes research translation through industry partnerships.
Professor Emeritus Burney Le Boeuf summarizes the findings of the UC Santa Cruz elephant seal research program, one of the longest running studies of any animal
The Decadal Survey on Astronomy and Astrophysics identifies the most compelling science goals and provides recommendations for funding agencies
New funding will advance research on how effects of environmental stresses can be transmitted from one generation to the next.
Whales eat a lot, and yet paradoxically, their decline has also led to a decline in the krill they feed on, and negatively impacted the productivity of their ecosystem.
A team of scientists has reconstituted the circadian clock of cyanobacteria in a test tube, enabling them to study rhythmic interactions of the clock proteins in real time and understand how these interactions enable the clock to exert control over gene expression.
