Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Enzyme

Alan D. Grossman mostly deals with Bacillus subtilis, Gene, Genetics, ParABS system and Biochemistry. His Bacillus subtilis research incorporates elements of Transcription factor, Mutant, Chromosome, Peptide sequence and Cell biology. His study explores the link between Transcription factor and topics such as Pheromone that cross with problems in Open reading frame.

Alan D. Grossman has researched ParABS system in several fields, including Cell cycle, Nucleoid, lac operon and Plasmid partitioning. Alan D. Grossman focuses mostly in the field of lac operon, narrowing it down to topics relating to Chromosome 22 and, in certain cases, Molecular biology. His studies deal with areas such as Oligopeptide and Peptide as well as Gene expression.

His most cited work include:

  • Regulation of noise in the expression of a single gene (1379 citations)
  • A collection of strains containing genetically linked alternating antibiotic resistance elements for genetic mapping of Escherichia coli. (586 citations)
  • Localization of bacterial DNA polymerase: evidence for a factory model of replication. (456 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Bacillus subtilis, Genetics, Gene, DNA replication and Molecular biology. The concepts of his Bacillus subtilis study are interwoven with issues in Gene expression, Transcription factor, Biochemistry, DNA and Cell biology. His Gene expression research includes themes of Extracellular, Sporulation in Bacillus subtilis and Peptide.

His Gene study frequently draws connections between related disciplines such as Computational biology. Alan D. Grossman focuses mostly in the field of DNA replication, narrowing it down to matters related to Chromosome and, in some cases, Circular bacterial chromosome. His Molecular biology study incorporates themes from ParABS system, Mutant protein, Mutant, DNA repair and Transcription.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Bacillus subtilis (53.80%)
  • Genetics (45.57%)
  • Gene (34.81%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2012-2021)?

  • Bacillus subtilis (53.80%)
  • Genetics (45.57%)
  • Gene (34.81%)

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

Bacillus subtilis, Genetics, Gene, Mobile genetic elements and DNA are his primary areas of study. His Bacillus subtilis study combines topics in areas such as Mutation, Secretion and Cytoplasm, Cell biology. His work carried out in the field of Cell biology brings together such families of science as Replication Initiation and DnaA.

His Gene research includes elements of Host and Computational biology. Alan D. Grossman has included themes like Bacterial host and Transposable element in his Mobile genetic elements study. His DNA research integrates issues from Cell and Cell division.

Between 2012 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Integrative and Conjugative Elements (ICEs): What They Do and How They Work (220 citations)
  • Engineered integrative and conjugative elements for efficient and inducible DNA transfer to undomesticated bacteria (60 citations)
  • Enabling genetic analysis of diverse bacteria with Mobile-CRISPRi. (56 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Enzyme

His scientific interests lie mostly in Genetics, Bacillus subtilis, Gene, DNA replication and Genome. His Genetics study focuses mostly on Mutation rate and Mutagenesis. Alan D. Grossman combines subjects such as Hydrolase, Cytoplasm, Peptidoglycan and DNA with his study of Bacillus subtilis.

Within one scientific family, Alan D. Grossman focuses on topics pertaining to Computational biology under Gene, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Gene regulatory network, Phenotype and Transposable element. His DNA replication research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Origin of transfer and Relaxase. His research integrates issues of Plasmid and Regulation of gene expression in his study of Horizontal gene transfer.
