Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Bacteria
  • Enzyme
  • Gene

Biochemistry, Bacteria, Microbiology, Shewanella oneidensis and Dehalococcoides are his primary areas of study. His work in the fields of Bacteria, such as Microbial metabolism, overlaps with other areas such as Anaerobic exercise and Environmental systems. Many of his research projects under Microbiology are closely connected to Context with Context, tying the diverse disciplines of science together.

His work in Shewanella oneidensis addresses subjects such as Shewanella, which are connected to disciplines such as Biofilm, Organic matter, Ecology, Microbial fuel cell and Biochemical engineering. His work investigates the relationship between Dehalococcoides and topics such as Dehalogenimonas that intersect with problems in Dichloroethene and Dehalobacter. The Ethylbenzene study which covers Acetophenone that intersects with Biodegradation and Strain.

His most cited work include:

  • Towards environmental systems biology of Shewanella (649 citations)
  • Anaerobic bacterial metabolism of hydrocarbons (408 citations)
  • Dehalococcoides mccartyi gen. nov., sp. nov., obligately organohalide-respiring anaerobic bacteria relevant to halogen cycling and bioremediation, belong to a novel bacterial class, Dehalococcoidia classis nov., order Dehalococcoidales ord. nov. and family Dehalococcoidaceae fam. nov., within the phylum Chloroflexi. (343 citations)

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

His main research concerns Biochemistry, Biofilm, Bacteria, Microbiology and Shewanella oneidensis. Alfred M. Spormann integrates Biochemistry and Benzylsuccinate synthase in his research. His Biofilm research includes elements of Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Biophysics.

In the field of Bacteria, his study on Microorganism overlaps with subjects such as Dehalococcoides. He has included themes like Anoxic waters, Pilus and Vibrio cholerae in his Microbiology study. His study on Shewanella oneidensis also encompasses disciplines like

  • Periplasmic space most often made with reference to Shewanella,
  • Mutant together with Motility and Cell biology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Biochemistry (20.47%)
  • Biofilm (19.88%)
  • Bacteria (18.13%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2013-2021)?

  • Bacteria (18.13%)
  • Biofilm (19.88%)
  • Microbiology (16.37%)

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

Alfred M. Spormann mainly focuses on Bacteria, Biofilm, Microbiology, Biochemistry and Electromethanogenesis. The various areas that Alfred M. Spormann examines in his Bacteria study include Biomass, Gene and Test. His work on Biofilm growth as part of general Biofilm research is frequently linked to Chemical agents, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science.

He interconnects Fermentation, Microbial mat and Microbial metabolism in the investigation of issues within Microbiology. His Electromethanogenesis research also works with subjects such as

  • Inorganic chemistry which intersects with area such as Shewanella oneidensis, Sorption, Oxide, Aqueous solution and Electrosynthesis,
  • Methane which intersects with area such as Lysis, Power to gas, Platinum on carbon and Graphite. His work in Shewanella oneidensis tackles topics such as Yield which are related to areas like Metal.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Extracellular Enzymes Facilitate Electron Uptake in Biocorrosion and Bioelectrosynthesis (206 citations)
  • Bacteria from Diverse Habitats Colonize and Compete in the Mouse Gut (199 citations)
  • Hydrogenase-independent uptake and metabolism of electrons by the archaeon Methanococcus maripaludis (137 citations)

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

  • Bacteria
  • Enzyme
  • Gene

His primary areas of study are Microbiology, Biochemistry, Bacteria, Microbial mat and Methanococcus maripaludis. His Microbiology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Soil microbiology and Biofilm. Hydrogenase and Electron transport chain are the primary areas of interest in his Biochemistry study.

His Bacteria research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Host and Colonization. His Microbial mat study combines topics in areas such as Photosynthesis, Botany, Lyngbya and Sulfate-reducing bacteria. The study incorporates disciplines such as Formate, Electromethanogenesis and Microbial electrosynthesis in addition to Methanococcus maripaludis.
