Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Enzyme
  • Gene
  • Biochemistry

Her primary scientific interests are in Biochemistry, Starch, Mutant, Amylopectin and Arabidopsis thaliana. Her Starch synthase, Enzyme, Endosperm, Gene isoform and Plastid study are her primary interests in Biochemistry. The concepts of her Starch study are interwoven with issues in Isoamylase, Carbohydrate, Alpha-amylase, Chloroplast and Metabolism.

The Mutant study combines topics in areas such as Starch phosphorylase and Sucrose. Her work in Amylopectin tackles topics such as Glycogen debranching enzyme which are related to areas like Phytoglycogen, Isoamylase activity, Polymer, Substrate and Granule. Her studies in Arabidopsis thaliana integrate themes in fields like Regulation of gene expression and Gene family.

Her most cited work include:

  • Functional Genomic Analysis of the AUXIN RESPONSE FACTOR Gene Family Members in Arabidopsis thaliana : Unique and Overlapping Functions of ARF7 and ARF19 (715 citations)
  • Coordination of carbon supply and plant growth (670 citations)
  • Starch: its metabolism, evolution, and biotechnological modification in plants. (628 citations)

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

Alison M. Smith spends much of her time researching Biochemistry, Starch, Enzyme, Mutant and Arabidopsis. Her works in Starch synthase, Amylopectin, Pisum, Gene isoform and Chloroplast are all subjects of inquiry into Biochemistry. The various areas that Alison M. Smith examines in her Starch study include Photosynthesis, Granule, Botany and Carbohydrate.

Her Enzyme study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Peptide sequence and Metabolism. Her research integrates issues of Sucrose synthase and Sucrose in her study of Mutant. Her Arabidopsis course of study focuses on Arabidopsis thaliana and Plant physiology.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Biochemistry (71.10%)
  • Starch (59.54%)
  • Enzyme (26.59%)

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

  • Starch (59.54%)
  • Arabidopsis (21.97%)
  • Biochemistry (71.10%)

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

Alison M. Smith mostly deals with Starch, Arabidopsis, Biochemistry, Mutant and Arabidopsis thaliana. Her research in Starch is mostly focused on Starch synthase. Her Arabidopsis study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Starch degradation, Chloroplast, Circadian clock and Cell biology.

Her study in the field of Enzyme, Maltose, Glucan and Subfamily also crosses realms of Convergent evolution. Her Mutant research includes themes of Mutation, Isoamylase, Introgression, Phytoglycogen and Glycogen debranching enzyme. Her work deals with themes such as Amylopectin, Starch synthase activity and Isozyme, which intersect with Granule.

Between 2012 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Arabidopsis plants perform arithmetic division to prevent starvation at night (110 citations)
  • Introducing an algal carbon-concentrating mechanism into higher plants: location and incorporation of key components. (64 citations)
  • Starch synthase 4 is essential for coordination of starch granule formation with chloroplast division during Arabidopsis leaf expansion. (57 citations)

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

  • Enzyme
  • Gene
  • Botany

Alison M. Smith mainly focuses on Arabidopsis, Starch, Biochemistry, Arabidopsis thaliana and Chloroplast. Her work carried out in the field of Starch brings together such families of science as Photosynthesis and Mutant. In general Biochemistry, her work in Enzyme, Subfamily and Glycoside hydrolase is often linked to Convergent evolution linking many areas of study.

Her Arabidopsis thaliana study incorporates themes from Gigantea, Photosynthate partitioning, Sucrose, Circadian clock and photoperiodism. The Chloroplast study combines topics in areas such as Chlamydomonas, Botany and Chlamydomonas reinhardtii. Her studies deal with areas such as Isozyme, Starch synthase activity and Granule as well as Starch synthase.
