Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Bacteria
  • Ecology
  • Gene

Amy Pruden spends much of her time researching Ecology, Microbiology, Environmental chemistry, Bacteria and Antibiotic resistance. Her work carried out in the field of Ecology brings together such families of science as Microbiome and Horizontal gene transfer. Her work deals with themes such as Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Mesophile, which intersect with Microbiology.

Her Environmental chemistry research incorporates elements of Water treatment, Aerobie, Oxidizing agent, Electron acceptor and Aqueous solution. Her research on Antibiotic resistance concerns the broader Antibiotics. Her biological study deals with issues like Veterinary medicine, which deal with fields such as Tetracycline.

Her most cited work include:

  • Antibiotic Resistance Genes as Emerging Contaminants: Studies in Northern Colorado† (992 citations)
  • Effect of river landscape on the sediment concentrations of antibiotics and corresponding antibiotic resistance genes (ARG). (515 citations)
  • Using the class 1 integron-integrase gene as a proxy for anthropogenic pollution (498 citations)

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

Her primary areas of investigation include Antibiotic resistance, Microbiology, Environmental chemistry, Antibiotic resistance genes and Bacteria. Her studies in Antibiotic resistance integrate themes in fields like Tetracycline, Ecology and Gene. The study incorporates disciplines such as Legionella, Legionella pneumophila, 16S ribosomal RNA and Pseudomonas aeruginosa in addition to Microbiology.

Amy Pruden interconnects Microbial population biology, Contamination, Biodegradation, Chlorine and Effluent in the investigation of issues within Environmental chemistry. Her research in Microbial population biology intersects with topics in Temperature gradient gel electrophoresis, Sulfate and Microorganism. Her Bacteria research focuses on subjects like Food science, which are linked to Manure.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Antibiotic resistance (17.48%)
  • Microbiology (16.26%)
  • Environmental chemistry (15.85%)

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

  • Legionella (10.57%)
  • Metagenomics (9.76%)
  • Antibiotic resistance (17.48%)

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

Amy Pruden mainly investigates Legionella, Metagenomics, Antibiotic resistance, Manure and Resistome. Her Legionella research includes elements of Disinfectant, Legionella pneumophila, Outbreak, Veterinary medicine and Water quality. Her Metagenomics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Identification, Data science and Antibiotic resistance genes.

The Antibiotic resistance study combines topics in areas such as Sewage, Environmental health, Microbial population biology, Resistance and Fecal coliform. The various areas that Amy Pruden examines in her Manure study include Tetracycline, Soil water, Compost and Incubation. Her study looks at the intersection of Antibiotics and topics like Microbiome with Microbiology.

Between 2018 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Effect of antibiotic use and composting on antibiotic resistance gene abundance and resistome risks of soils receiving manure-derived amendments. (32 citations)
  • Impact of blending for direct potable reuse on premise plumbing microbial ecology and regrowth of opportunistic pathogens and antibiotic resistant bacteria (20 citations)
  • NanoARG: a web service for detecting and contextualizing antimicrobial resistance genes from nanopore-derived metagenomes (17 citations)

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

  • Bacteria
  • Ecology
  • Gene

Amy Pruden mostly deals with Antibiotic resistance, Resistome, Manure, Metagenomics and Bacteria. Her research investigates the link between Antibiotic resistance and topics such as Fecal coliform that cross with problems in Sewage treatment, Cefotaxime, Wastewater and Effluent. She combines subjects such as Soil water and Compost with her study of Manure.

Her Bacteria study typically links adjacent topics like Food science. Her work in Microbial population biology addresses subjects such as Pulp and paper industry, which are connected to disciplines such as Legionella. Her Legionella study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Water quality, Microbial ecology and Biofilm.
