Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • DNA

Allan F. McRae focuses on Genetics, DNA methylation, Genome-wide association study, Epigenetics and Gene. Genetics is represented through his Single-nucleotide polymorphism, Linkage disequilibrium, Genetic variation, Quantitative trait locus and Heritability research. His Quantitative trait locus research includes elements of Genetic marker and Expression quantitative trait loci.

His DNA methylation research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Survival analysis and Bioinformatics. The various areas that Allan F. McRae examines in his Genome-wide association study study include Regulation of gene expression, Computational biology and Genetic association. His Epigenetics research integrates issues from Methylation and Ageing.

His most cited work include:

  • A versatile gene-based test for genome-wide association studies (687 citations)
  • DNA methylation age of blood predicts all-cause mortality in later life. (604 citations)
  • DNA methylation profiles in monozygotic and dizygotic twins. (549 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Genetics, DNA methylation, Genome-wide association study, Quantitative trait locus and Gene. His is doing research in Single-nucleotide polymorphism, Genetic association, Genetic variation, Genome and Heritability, both of which are found in Genetics. His study in DNA methylation is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Methylation and Epigenetics.

His Epigenetics research focuses on subjects like Internal medicine, which are linked to Endocrinology. His Genome-wide association study study also includes

  • Disease together with Cohort,
  • Computational biology and related Epigenomics. Allan F. McRae focuses mostly in the field of Quantitative trait locus, narrowing it down to matters related to Expression quantitative trait loci and, in some cases, Molecular genetics.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (73.53%)
  • DNA methylation (34.31%)
  • Genome-wide association study (37.25%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2019-2021)?

  • DNA methylation (34.31%)
  • Genetics (73.53%)
  • Disease (9.31%)

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

Allan F. McRae spends much of his time researching DNA methylation, Genetics, Disease, Genome-wide association study and Internal medicine. DNA methylation is closely attributed to Epigenetics in his work. His work is dedicated to discovering how Epigenetics, Bayesian probability are connected with Natural language processing, Body mass index and Lasso and other disciplines.

His work on Epigenome and Gene expression as part of general Genetics research is frequently linked to Association, bridging the gap between disciplines. His work deals with themes such as Genetic association and Genetic architecture, which intersect with Genome-wide association study. His studies deal with areas such as Methylation and Oncology as well as Internal medicine.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Association of Copy Number Variation of the 15q11.2 BP1-BP2 Region With Cortical and Subcortical Morphology and Cognition (25 citations)
  • Analysis of DNA methylation associates the cystine-glutamate antiporter SLC7A11 with risk of Parkinson's disease. (16 citations)
  • Risk prediction of late-onset Alzheimer’s disease implies an oligogenic architecture (14 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • DNA

His primary areas of investigation include DNA methylation, Genetics, Internal medicine, Genetic architecture and Gene. His research in Genetics is mostly concerned with Quantitative trait locus. His research investigates the connection between Quantitative trait locus and topics such as Body mass index that intersect with problems in Disease and Epigenetics.

He has researched Internal medicine in several fields, including Genome-wide association study and Oncology. His studies in Genetic architecture integrate themes in fields like Natural selection, DNA, Regulation of gene expression, Genetic variation and dNaM. Allan F. McRae combines subjects such as Sexual dimorphism and Ageing with his study of Gene.
