The group will study the potential risks and benefits of using CRISPR/Cas9 to develop gene drive systems for control and manipulation of mosquito populations.

Unlike existing versions, CLARK-S allows mismatches between sample reads and reference databases, enabling it to map a larger proportion of input sequences.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – A researcher at the University of California, Riverside has received a five-year, $1.8 million grant to produce fine-scale recombination rate maps for the African malaria mosquito in research aimed at preventing transmission of the disease.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Research partners at the University of Washington and the University of California, Riverside have netted $2 million in funding from the National Institutes of Health to study the genome of the Plasmodium parasite, which causes malaria, UC Riverside said on We

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Researchers at the University of California, Riverside have received a four-year, $1.5 million grant from the National Institutes of Health to study the effect of single nucleotide polymorphisms on a special class of proteins that regulate the expression of genes in re

The UCR researchers will conduct rice genome sequencing studies to discover how transposable elements may affect gene expression and possibly be involved in adaptation changes.

Gene expression data, cellular proliferation rate, and immune markers each add information for classifying metastatic melanoma tumors and predicting patient outcomes.
