Ecosystems dominated by high-powered competitors are more efficient at recycling nutrients than low-powered systems, argues UC Davis paleontologist Geerat Vermeij in a new paper. The idea ties together evolution and ecology, and explains how ecosystems may have evolved to become more efficient since life appeared on Earth.…
 
Mathematics is the language of the universe, and mathematicians can use this language to help people better understand the world. I talked to some UC Davis mathematicians about the problems they work on and why they are important. From quantum computers to the movement of subatomic particles and microorganisms swimming through fluids, it’s a journe…
 
A year ago this week, a series of fires broke out in Napa, Sonoma, and Mendocino counties, one of California’s best-known wine growing regions. While 90 percent of the grapes in Napa County had been harvested, a few vineyards still had grapes on the vine, including at the UC Davis experimental station in Oakville. Wildfire smoke can ruin wine. Anit…

If you’ve ever tried to untangle a pair of earbuds, you’ll understand how loops and cords can get twisted up. DNA can get tangled in the same way. UC Davis biomathematician Mariel Vazquez talks about her work on the math of how DNA can be cut and reconnected. The math involved turns out to be involved in other fields as well.…
 
Even the simplest organisms are hard to predict. Computer scientist Ilias Tagkopoulos. UC Davis Genome Center, talks about the model he and colleagues have built for the bacterium E. coli. The model could act as a 'crystal ball' that helps researchers design better experiments. Tagkopoulos says this is an exciting time to be on the interface of bio…
