Denis Chetverikov, Yongjie Hu and Aaswath Raman are among 126 early-career scientists and scholars from across the United States and Canada selected to receive fellowships.
Jacobsen specializes in plant epigenetics — the study of how a gene’s function can change without changes to the DNA sequence.
Only a dozen such quakes have been identified in the past two decades, according to Lingsen Meng, UCLA’s Leon and Joanne V.C. Knopoff Professor of Physics and Geophysics.
Vladimir Vassiliev, professor of physics and astronomy, has served as principal investigator on project that could help address questions in very-high-energy astrophysics.
Changes in RNA editing play an important role in the disorder, scientists find.
At the heart of the dispute is the Hubble constant, a number that relates distances to the redshifts of galaxies — the amount that light is stretched as it travels to Earth.
In a ‘game-changing’ finding, researchers found that bone mass increased 800% after signals were blocked in the brains of mice.
