Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Gene
  • Genetics

Tick, Zoology, Argasidae, Nuttalliella and Theileria are his primary areas of study. His Tick study results in a more complete grasp of Veterinary medicine. His Tick-borne disease study, which is part of a larger body of work in Veterinary medicine, is frequently linked to Parasitemia, bridging the gap between disciplines.

His study looks at the relationship between Zoology and topics such as Lineage, which overlap with Ancestral reconstruction. As a member of one scientific family, he mostly works in the field of Argasidae, focusing on Monophyly and, on occasion, Living fossil. His Theileria research incorporates themes from Hybridization probe, Virology, Ribosomal RNA, Theileria parva and Cape buffalo.

His most cited work include:

  • Ticks of domestic animals in Africa: a guide to identification of species (617 citations)
  • A review of Theileria diagnostics and epidemiology. (121 citations)
  • The known distribution and ecological preferences of the tick subgenus Boophilus (Acari: Ixodidae) in Africa and Latin America (105 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Abdalla A. Latif spends much of his time researching Veterinary medicine, Tick, Theileria parva, Virology and Theileria. The various areas that Abdalla A. Latif examines in his Veterinary medicine study include Nymph, Inoculation, Outbreak and Livestock. His work focuses on many connections between Tick and other disciplines, such as Acari, that overlap with his field of interest in Animal ecology.

His study in Theileria parva is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both East Coast fever and Cape buffalo. His research in Virology intersects with topics in Hybridization probe and Polymerase chain reaction. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Vector, Bovidae, Ribosomal RNA, Molecular biology and Host.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Veterinary medicine (56.00%)
  • Tick (48.00%)
  • Theileria parva (29.33%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2020)?

  • Veterinary medicine (56.00%)
  • Tick (48.00%)
  • Outbreak (20.00%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Abdalla A. Latif focuses on Veterinary medicine, Tick, Outbreak, Theileria and Virology. Abdalla A. Latif interconnects Phlebotomus, Lutzomyia and Vaccination in the investigation of issues within Veterinary medicine. His Tick study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Taxonomy, DNA sequencing and Acari.

His research integrates issues of Zoology, Theileria parva, Host, Genotype and Polymerase chain reaction in his study of Theileria. His Theileria parva research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Ecology and Cape buffalo. When carried out as part of a general Virology research project, his work on Transmission, Babesiosis and Babesia bovis is frequently linked to work in Pandemic, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study.

Between 2015 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • Argasid and ixodid systematics: Implications for soft tick evolution and systematics, with a new argasid species list. (46 citations)
  • Ancestral reconstruction of tick lineages. (39 citations)
  • De novo assembly and annotation of the salivary gland transcriptome of Rhipicephalus appendiculatus male and female ticks during blood feeding (34 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Ecology
  • Gene
  • Genetics

Abdalla A. Latif mainly investigates Tick, Ornithodoros, Argasidae, DNA sequencing and Evolutionary biology. The concepts of his Tick study are interwoven with issues in Zoology, Genetics and Ancestral reconstruction. His Ornithodoros research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Taxonomy and Systematics.

The Nuttalliella and Argas research Abdalla A. Latif does as part of his general Argasidae study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as Context, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science. His DNA sequencing study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Molecular biology and Secretory protein. He has researched Evolutionary biology in several fields, including Phylogenetics, Lineage, Phylogenetic tree, Molecular phylogenetics and Genomics.
