Members of Sheila David’s Laboratory at UC Davis attended the Chemical Biology in the Bay Area (CBBA) Day on June 1st, 2019, which was hosted by UCSF in San Francisco. This event brought in graduate student presenters from UC Davis, UC Santa Cruz, UC Berkeley, and UCSF. The keynote speaker was Anthony Ogawa from Merck. Merve Demir from our lab presented a research poster titled, “Elucidating Additional Features of 8-Oxo-guanine Recognition and Adenine Excision Mechanism by the DNA Glycosylase MutY.” The speakers were consistently excellent throughout the day, touching on a broad range of topics within the wide world of chemical biology. We all had a great time. Cheers to all of the presenters and volunteers that helped run the conference!

- Significant glacial retreat in West Antarctica began in 1940s February 27, 2024Among the vast expanse of Antarctica lies the Thwaites Glacier, the world's widest glacier measuring about 80 miles on the western edge of the continent. Despite its size, the massive landform is losing about 50 billion tons of ice more than it is receiving in snowfall, which places it in a precarious position in respect […]
- New world record for CIGS solar cells February 26, 2024A new record for electrical energy generation from CIGS solar cells has been reached. Scientists have achieved a 23.64 percent efficiency.
- Metal scar found on cannibal star February 26, 2024When a star like our Sun reaches the end of its life, it can ingest the surrounding planets and asteroids that were born with it. Now, researchers have found a unique signature of this process for the first time -- a scar imprinted on the surface of a white dwarf star.
- Drug limits dangerous reactions to allergy-triggering foods, Stanford Medicine-led study of kids finds February 26, 2024A drug that binds to allergy-causing antibodies can protect children from dangerous reactions to accidentally eating allergy-triggering foods, a new study found.
- Barriers against Antarctic ice melt disappearing at the double February 23, 2024Undersea anchors of ice that help prevent Antarctica's land ice from slipping into the ocean are shrinking at more than twice the rate compared with 50 years ago, research shows. More than a third of these frozen moorings, known as pinning points, have decreased in size since the turn of the century, experts say. Further […]
