Mission & Vision
The Graduate Program in Genetics, Genomics & Bioinformatics (GGB) at UC Riverside is a multidisciplinary Ph.D. program. It offers modern integrative training across genetics, genomics and bioinformatics with opportunities to specialize in one or more experimental or computational disciplines.
Childhood diet and exercise creates healthier, less anxious adults
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.
Discovery is key to creating heat-tolerant crops
By 2050 global warming could reduce crop yields by one-third. UC Riverside researchers have identified a gene that could put the genie back in the bottle.
Rise of oxygen on Earth: Initial estimates off by 100 million years
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 atmosphere.
New method expands the world of small RNAs
PANDORA sequencing method developed by UC Riverside-led team can detect once-undetectable small RNAs
