The faculty members have published research that is cited most often by other scholars in their fields.
A study by UCLA biologists shows a 99% population reduction in the 20th century, but genetic diversity remains high.
Genomic research led by UCLA scientists could support conservation efforts; the species is endangered in large part because of illegal hunting.
New research shows that the accuracy of genetically based disease predictions varies from person to person.
A study in mice shows that scarring of collagen pathways prevent stem cells from healing damaged tissue in Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
Two years after she first joined a UCLA lab, Grace McAuley identified a critical step toward a possible therapy for a rare disease.
The condition, CD3 delta SCID, is caused by a mutation that prevents the production of the CD3 delta protein that is needed for the normal development of T cells
In memoriam: Robert Wayne, 66, pioneer of conservation genetics, protecting canids and other species
His research helped explain the evolution of dogs and showed that freeways are a barrier to bobcat and coyote migration.
A demonstration in the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach showed that non-academics can use the fast, inexpensive genetic test.
UCLA-led research on deer and elk could point the way toward crossing structures that are more effective for all species.
The annual list compiled by Clarivate identifies scholars whose work has been referenced most often in studies published by other researchers.
The continent’s diverse species all evolved very rapidly from a single ancestral population, a UCLA-led study shows.
Changes at the DNA level can accelerate aging by nearly five years, UCLA researchers and their colleagues report.
Understanding the adaptations that protect female animals from disorders may help humans too, UCLA research suggests.
The findings suggest that a drug used to treat HIV-related memory loss could combat cognitive decline in middle-aged people.
If they can escape death in poachers’ nets, the endangered marine mammal is well poised genetically to rebound despite inbreeding.
UCLA’s Dr. Manish Butte will head a group investigating immune responses to the disease, which is caused by fungal spores in soil.
Unless steps are taken to boost genetic diversity, local extinction remains a real threat, a UCLA-led study suggests.
Research brief: Adding a protein called viral polymerase to vaccines could potentially create a more robust, enduring immune response, scientists say.
UCLA researchers use super-resolution microscopy to reveal surprising new details about X inactivation in female mouse embryos.
Researchers report that all nine patients who were successfully treated for ADA-SCID in a UCLA clinical trial from 2009 to 2012 are still disease-free.
Too little sleep in the first six months after giving birth can add three to seven years to women’s “biological age,” UCLA scientists report.
A team led by UCLA scientists found that removing IGF2BP3 selectively targets cancer cells while leaving healthy cells alone.
Research brief: Scientists have identified hundreds of chemical modifications that can alter RNA’s protein-making instructions without affecting the core DNA.
By better understanding the dynamics of a key immune signaling molecule, scientists may be able to ‘hack’ the immune system to strengthen it.
