Bombardment of Earth’s surface by asteroids six or more miles long likely delayed the accumulation of oxygen in Earth’s atmosphere. This, in turn, likely delayed the development of complex life on the planet, according to new research that included UC Riverside scientists.
Generative adversarial networks are being used to predict the structure of antibodies that could neutralize a previously unknown virus
Scientists have figured out how plants respond to light and can flip this genetic switch to encourage food growth - even in the dark. The discovery could help increase food supply for an expanding population with shrinking opportunities for farming.
Training program spans broad range of research areas from basic stem cell biology to translational medicine
New UC Riverside research shows groundwater takes an average of three years to recover from drought — if it ever recovers at all. In the largest study of its kind, scientists found that this recovery time only applies to aquifers that aren’t touched by human activity, and the recovery time...
When the world’s most powerful telescope launches into space this year, scientists will learn whether Earth-sized planets in our ‘solar neighborhood’ have a key prerequisite for life — an atmosphere.
UC Riverside receives $2 million to monitor air quality impacts of goods movement in Inland Southern California
The grant comes from the California Attorney General’s Office Automobile Emissions Research and Technology Fund
Synthetic strigolactones could also improve nutrient uptake in crops
UC Riverside astronomer and colleagues use simulations to reveal how the very faint dwarf galaxies are born
In less time than it takes to read this sentence, hummingbirds can catch a whiff of potential trouble. That’s the result of new UC Riverside research showing, contrary to popular belief, the tiny birds do have an active sense of smell.
Computer scientists use Google Trends and a government dataset to track symptoms and sift through misinformation
Project aims to make quantum computers easier to produce and operable at room temperature
There are finally efforts under way to improve the environmental health disaster that is the Salton Sea — California’s largest and most polluted lake. However, a group of UC Riverside scientists, engineers, medical experts, and economists has published a new report warning that without science, these efforts may not succeed.
UCR experts discuss the technological and ethical implications of using AI to deepfake the deceased.
A new UC Riverside study shows that a type of insecticide made for commercial plant nurseries is harmful to a typical bee even when applied well below the label rate.
