A new UC Riverside study finds a naturally occurring “earthquake gate” that decides which earthquakes are allowed to grow into magnitude 8 or greater.
UC Riverside-led team developed simple, rapid method to assess contaminants in household fabrics
Hydrogen bonds reshape peptides to move electrons a million times faster than previously known
Exercise and a healthy diet in childhood leads to adults with bigger brains and lower levels of anxiety, according to new UC Riverside research in mice.
New research shows the permanent rise of oxygen in our atmosphere, which set the stage for life as we know it, happened 100 million years later than previously thought. A team including UC Riverside found that oxygen fluctuated dramatically after its early appearance before becoming a permanent constituent of the...
The purely electrical technique captures cell-free DNA from the surface of a sample
A new UC Riverside study has found the first evidence of sophisticated breathing organs in 450-million-year-old sea creatures. Contrary to previous thought, trilobites were leg breathers, with structures resembling gills hanging off their thighs.
Barley is important for more than beer. A UC Riverside geneticist has won $1.7 million to study how one of the world’s staple foods might survive climate change.
DNA is usually depicted as double-stranded, but not much is known about parts of the genome that adopt four-stranded structures known as quadruplexes. UC Riverside researchers have discovered that they play a key role in keeping cells healthy.
Ajpach’ Waal forged an alliance between two dynasties but died in obscurity
Today’s humans share genes with 555-million-year-old oceanic creatures missing heads.
New UC Riverside research reveals an essential step in scientists’ quest to create targeted, more eco-friendly fungicides that protect food crops.
The plant that encourages kissing at Christmas is in fact a parasite, and new research reveals mistletoe has an unusual feeding strategy. When two mistletoes invade the same tree, they increase photosynthesis to get the nutrients they need, essentially sharing the tree and causing it less harm.
The breakthrough combines excellent electromagnetic shielding with ease of manufacture and electrical isolation
UC Riverside-led study observed unexpected insulating phases by placing electrons on stacked monolayers of 2D semiconductors
