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.
‘Super Earth’ discovered near one of our galaxy’s oldest stars
A hot, rocky “super Earth,” near one of the oldest stars in the galaxy has taken a team of planet-hunting scientists by surprise.
Astronomers measure enormous planet lurking far from its star
Scientists aren’t usually able to measure the size of gigantic planets, like Jupiter or Saturn, which are far from the stars they orbit. But a UC Riverside-led team has done it.
Scientists developing new solutions for honeybee colony collapse
The University of California, Riverside, is leading a new effort to stop and reverse a worldwide decline in honeybees, which threatens food security and prices.
Delicious and disease-free: scientists attempting new citrus varieties
UC Riverside scientists are betting an ancient solution will solve citrus growers’ biggest problem by breeding new fruits with natural resistance to a deadly tree disease. The hybrid fruits will ideally share the best of their parents’ attributes: the tastiness of the best citrus, and the resistance to Huanglongbing, or HLB, displayed by some Australian relatives of citrus.
