Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Bacteria
  • Gene
  • Genetics

Alex Mira mainly focuses on Metagenomics, Microbiology, Genetics, Genome and Gene. His Metagenomics research includes themes of Bacterial genetics, Microbial composition and Biotechnology. His Microbiology research includes elements of Periodontitis, Oral microbiology, Lactobacillus, Streptococcus mutans and Dysbiosis.

His Genetics research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Atresia and Cell biology. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Nucleic acid thermodynamics, Sequence analysis, Identification and Virulence. Many of his research projects under Gene are closely connected to Selection with Selection, tying the diverse disciplines of science together.

His most cited work include:

  • Deletional bias and the evolution of bacterial genomes (624 citations)
  • The human milk microbiome changes over lactation and is shaped by maternal weight and mode of delivery (486 citations)
  • Explaining microbial population genomics through phage predation. (464 citations)

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

Alex Mira spends much of his time researching Microbiology, Genetics, Gene, Genome and Pyrosequencing. His study in Microbiology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Bacteria, Streptococcus mutans, Biofilm and Microbiome. The Microbiome study combines topics in areas such as Lactation, Breast milk and Immunology.

His study on Gene rearrangement is often connected to Selection as part of broader study in Gene. His research in Pyrosequencing intersects with topics in Chronic periodontitis and 16S ribosomal RNA, Bacteroidetes. His research integrates issues of Ecology, Predation, Population genomics, Genomic library and Bacterial genetics in his study of Metagenomics.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Microbiology (30.77%)
  • Genetics (20.19%)
  • Gene (15.38%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Microbiology (30.77%)
  • Probiotic (8.65%)
  • Saliva (11.54%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Microbiology, Probiotic, Saliva, Dental plaque and Physiology. He has researched Microbiology in several fields, including Biofilm, Bacteria and Selenomonas. His work is dedicated to discovering how Bacteria, Whole genome sequencing are connected with Microbiome and other disciplines.

Microorganism and Fastidious organism is closely connected to Streptococcus mutans in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Saliva. His Dental plaque research incorporates elements of Gastroenterology, Streptococcus dentisani, Oral health and Internal medicine. His Physiology study combines topics in areas such as Vagina, Bacterial vaginosis and Lactobacillus.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Mycobiome Profiles in Breast Milk from Healthy Women Depend on Mode of Delivery, Geographic Location, and Interaction with Bacteria (31 citations)
  • Nasopharyngeal Microbiota in Children With Invasive Pneumococcal Disease: Identification of Bacteria With Potential Disease-Promoting and Protective Effects. (20 citations)
  • Microbiota of human precolostrum and its potential role as a source of bacteria to the infant mouth (19 citations)

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

  • Bacteria
  • Gene
  • Genetics

His primary scientific interests are in Saliva, Microbiology, Prevotella, Zoology and Breastfeeding. The concepts of his Saliva study are interwoven with issues in Pathogen, Antibiotics, Fastidious organism, Biofilm and Microorganism. Alex Mira studies Microbiology, namely Dental plaque.

His work carried out in the field of Prevotella brings together such families of science as Veillonella and Food science, Prebiotic. His research in Zoology tackles topics such as Mycobiota which are related to areas like Delivery mode, Breast milk and Penicillium. His Breastfeeding research integrates issues from Microbiome, 16S ribosomal RNA, Isolation, Staphylococcus and Nucleotide level.
