Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • DNA

Alessandro Achilli focuses on Genetics, Mitochondrial DNA, Haplogroup, Evolutionary biology and Haplotype. His Mitochondrial DNA research includes themes of Phylogenetics and Phylogenetic tree. In his research, Homo sapiens is intimately related to Biological dispersal, which falls under the overarching field of Phylogenetics.

His work carried out in the field of Haplogroup brings together such families of science as Mutation and Human mitochondrial DNA haplogroup. His studies deal with areas such as Base sequence, Phylogeography, Last Glacial Maximum and Introgression as well as Evolutionary biology. The concepts of his Haplotype study are interwoven with issues in Domestication, Allele frequency, Subclade and Pedigree chart.

His most cited work include:

  • Single, rapid coastal settlement of Asia revealed by analysis of complete mitochondrial genomes. (593 citations)
  • Distinctive Paleo-Indian Migration Routes from Beringia Marked by Two Rare mtDNA Haplogroups (561 citations)
  • Distinctive Paleo-Indian Migration Routes from Beringia Marked by Two Rare mtDNA Haplogroups (561 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Mitochondrial DNA, Genetics, Haplogroup, Evolutionary biology and Haplotype. His studies in Mitochondrial DNA integrate themes in fields like Phylogenetics, Genome and Phylogenetic tree. His study looks at the relationship between Genetics and topics such as Population genetics, which overlap with Panama, Homo sapiens and Human migration.

His Haplogroup study combines topics in areas such as Paleogenetics, Beringia, Taurine cattle and Human mitochondrial DNA haplogroup. His Evolutionary biology study incorporates themes from Clade, Gene pool, Genetic structure, Genetic diversity and Phylogeography. As part of one scientific family, Alessandro Achilli deals mainly with the area of Haplotype, narrowing it down to issues related to the Y chromosome, and often Breed.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Mitochondrial DNA (67.22%)
  • Genetics (67.78%)
  • Haplogroup (67.78%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Haplogroup (67.78%)
  • Evolutionary biology (54.44%)
  • Mitochondrial DNA (67.22%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Haplogroup, Evolutionary biology, Mitochondrial DNA, Genetic structure and Ethnology. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Zoology, Phylogeography, Phylogenetics, Phylogenetic tree and Archaeology. His work focuses on many connections between Phylogeography and other disciplines, such as Amazonian, that overlap with his field of interest in Human mitochondrial DNA haplogroup.

His Evolutionary biology research includes elements of Holocene, Ancient DNA, Y chromosome, Gene pool and Haplotype. His Mitochondrial DNA research is within the category of Genetics. When carried out as part of a general Genetics research project, his work on Mutation is frequently linked to work in MT-ND6, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Mitogenome diversity in Sardinians: A genetic window onto an Island's past (37 citations)
  • Ancient individuals from the North American Northwest Coast reveal 10,000 years of regional genetic continuity (36 citations)
  • The Paleo-Indian Entry into South America According to Mitogenomes. (27 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • DNA

His scientific interests lie mostly in Haplogroup, Genetic variation, Phylogeography, Evolutionary biology and Diversity. His research integrates issues of Domestication and Phylogenetics in his study of Haplogroup. His Genetic variation study deals with Human mitochondrial DNA haplogroup intersecting with Amazon rainforest, Amazonian, Ancient DNA, Cave and Indigenous.

The various areas that Alessandro Achilli examines in his Phylogeography study include Ecology and Archaeological evidence. His work is dedicated to discovering how Evolutionary biology, Population growth are connected with Haplotype and Holocene and other disciplines. The subject of his Haplotype research is within the realm of Genetics.
