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!

- Ancient genomes suggest woolly rhinos went extinct due to climate change, not overhunting August 13, 2020Although overhunting led to the demise of some prehistoric megafauna after the last ice age, a new study found that the extinction of the woolly rhinoceros may have been caused by climate change. By sequencing ancient DNA from 14 woolly rhinos, researchers found that their population remained stable and diverse until only a few thousand […]
- 'Black dwarf supernova': Physicist calculates when the last supernova ever will happen August 12, 2020New theoretical research finds that many white dwarfs may explode in supernova in the distant far future, long after everything else in the universe has died and gone quiet.
- Inexpensive, accessible device provides visual proof that masks block droplets August 11, 2020In a proof-of-concept study, researchers report that a simple, low-cost technique provided visual proof that face masks are effective in reducing droplet emissions during normal wear. They found that the best face coverings were N95 masks without valves -- the hospital-grade coverings that are used by front-line health care workers. Surgical or polypropylene masks also […]
