Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Bacteria
  • Gene
  • Ecology

His scientific interests lie mostly in Genetics, Ecology, Bacteria, Ribosomal RNA and Phylogenetics. In general Genetics study, his work on Oligonucleotide, 16S ribosomal RNA and Oligomer restriction often relates to the realm of Fluorescence in situ hybridization, thereby connecting several areas of interest. The concepts of his Ecology study are interwoven with issues in Stable-isotope probing, Desulfosporosinus, Rare biosphere and Metagenomics.

His Bacteria study combines topics in areas such as Activated sludge and Sewage treatment. His work deals with themes such as Botany, Akkermansia, Bacteroidaceae, Sulfate-reducing bacteria and Sulfur metabolism, which intersect with Ribosomal RNA. The various areas that he examines in his Phylogenetics study include Desulfomonile, DNA microarray, Sequence analysis and Soil microbiology.

His most cited work include:

  • Oligonucleotide Microarray for 16S rRNA Gene-Based Detection of All Recognized Lineages of Sulfate-Reducing Prokaryotes in the Environment (581 citations)
  • probeBase—an online resource for rRNA-targeted oligonucleotide probes: new features 2007 (445 citations)
  • Bacterial community composition and function in sewage treatment systems (426 citations)

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

Alexander Loy mainly focuses on Ecology, Genetics, Microbiology, Bacteria and Botany. His work carried out in the field of Ecology brings together such families of science as Microbial ecology, Rare biosphere and Metagenomics. His study in Gene, 16S ribosomal RNA, Ribosomal RNA, Oligonucleotide and Genome falls under the purview of Genetics.

His research investigates the link between Microbiology and topics such as Gut flora that cross with problems in Microbiome. His research in Bacteria focuses on subjects like Biochemistry, which are connected to Microcosm and Microorganism. His Botany research includes themes of Candidatus, Sulfur metabolism and Soil microbiology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (25.00%)
  • Genetics (18.38%)
  • Microbiology (15.44%)

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

  • Fjord (7.35%)
  • Biochemistry (11.76%)
  • Deltaproteobacteria (7.35%)

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

His primary areas of study are Fjord, Biochemistry, Deltaproteobacteria, Microcosm and Microbiome. His research in Fjord intersects with topics in Ecology, Nutrient, Arctic and Phylum. His research on Ecology frequently connects to adjacent areas such as Rare biosphere.

His Biochemistry study frequently links to related topics such as Bacteria. His studies deal with areas such as Trophic level, Organic matter, Microorganism and Anoxic waters as well as Deltaproteobacteria. The study incorporates disciplines such as Candidatus, Tetrathionate, Biogeochemical cycle and Botany in addition to Microcosm.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Microbiome definition re-visited: old concepts and new challenges (77 citations)
  • Mucispirillum schaedleri Antagonizes Salmonella Virulence to Protect Mice against Colitis (44 citations)
  • Proposal to reclassify the proteobacterial classes Deltaproteobacteria and Oligoflexia, and the phylum Thermodesulfobacteria into four phyla reflecting major functional capabilities (26 citations)

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

  • Bacteria
  • Gene
  • Ecology

His primary scientific interests are in Microbiome, Gut flora, Library science, MEDLINE and Published Erratum. His Microbiome research covers fields of interest such as Resilience, Research findings, Public interest, Best practice and Composition. His Gut flora study incorporates themes from Dietary fiber, Colitis and Cell biology.
