We are Power! Jingzhe Guo, a non-lipid specialist in the Dehesh lab was awarded the best post-doctoral presentation prize at the 2023 Gordon Research Conference on Plant Lipids: Structure, Metabolism and Function in Galveston, Texas!
UCR Published the Following Article by Jules Bernstein on December 21, 2022. For decades, scientists have been stumped by the signals plants send themselves to initiate photosynthesis, the process of turning sunlight into sugars. UC Riverside researchers have now decoded those previously opaque signals. For half a century botanists have known that the command center...
Fellowship to the National Academy of Inventors is the highest distinction awarded to academic inventors. Distinguished Professor Sean Cutler's research takes a synthetic biology approach to manipulating plant response to drought.
C. elegans is a model organism to investigate how genes orchestrate development. Genes studied in C. elegans that specify the gut are missing in other nematodes, how do those intestines get made? Husband-and-wife duo figure out the genetic evolution.
On behalf of the IIGB Community & Botany and Plant Sciences Department, we congratulate our colleague Julia Bailey-Serres who been recognized on the Clarivate Analytic’s Highly Cited Researchers list once again this year. Julia is one of six UCR faculty on the list this year. It is truly remarkable that she has been on this...
Thirdhand smoke is the residual tobacco pollutants that remain on surfaces indefinitely. UCR, UCSF, and UCD researchers funded by tobacco research grants published an article outlining the damage of third-hand smoking
Alexander Raikhel is a Distinguished Professor of Entomology and member of the National Academy of Sciences. Learn about his inspiring story of pursuing science despite discrimination and political strife.
The scope of the project includes fire sprinklers, a new roof, expanded card key access, new Botany equipment in room 2163, and backup power. Replacing old infrastructure will bring major upgrades to one of the first buildings on campus.
Mangroves thrive in extreme environments and can sequester carbon emissions for thousands of years. UC Riverside and UC San Diego microbiologists identify the microbes driving this cycle and how mangroves combat climate change.
Environmental stresses form reactive oxygen species in organisms and play a part in cell function, but higher doses in plants are lethal. Plants produce salicylic acid, a.k.a. aspirin, to protect chloroplasts.
Some studies have suggested e-cigarettes may be a healthier alternative to tobacco smoking, but a study lead by Prue Talbot shows epithelium gene expression does not revert to the same profile as non-smokers.
The Inland Empire has one of the lowest ratios of doctors to patients in California. UCR School of Medicine established the Inland Empire Regional Hub for Healthcare Opportunity to create pre-med pathways for local college students.
Bumble bees are an important pollinator withstand cooler temperatures and lower light levels than other bees. Assistant Professor Hollis Woodard lead the first native California bumble bee census since 1980, and only found 68% of species historically known to inhabit the state.
