Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • Internal medicine

Andres Metspalu mainly focuses on Genome-wide association study, Genetics, Genetic association, Single-nucleotide polymorphism and Genetic architecture. His Genome-wide association study study incorporates themes from Bioinformatics, Internal medicine, Case-control study, Disease and Medical genetics. His Genetics study frequently draws parallels with other fields, such as Body mass index.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Psoriasis, Blood pressure and Heritability. The various areas that Andres Metspalu examines in his Single-nucleotide polymorphism study include Framingham Risk Score and Genetic variation. His Genetic architecture research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Common disease-common variant, Genetic predisposition, Allele, Allelic heterogeneity and Imputation.

His most cited work include:

  • Biological insights from 108 schizophrenia-associated genetic loci (4834 citations)
  • Association analyses of 249,796 individuals reveal 18 new loci associated with body mass index (2348 citations)
  • Trends in adult body-mass index in 200 countries from 1975 to 2014: A pooled analysis of 1698 population-based measurement studies with 19.2 million participants (2278 citations)

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

Andres Metspalu spends much of his time researching Genetics, Genome-wide association study, Single-nucleotide polymorphism, Genetic association and Internal medicine. Genetics is represented through his Gene, Locus, Allele, Candidate gene and Genetic architecture research. In his study, Disease is strongly linked to Bioinformatics, which falls under the umbrella field of Genome-wide association study.

His Single-nucleotide polymorphism research includes themes of Odds ratio, Genotyping and Haplotype. His Genetic association study combines topics in areas such as Body mass index and Minor allele frequency. His Internal medicine research includes elements of Endocrinology, Oncology and Cardiology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (58.53%)
  • Genome-wide association study (38.73%)
  • Single-nucleotide polymorphism (25.00%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Genetics (58.53%)
  • Genome-wide association study (38.73%)
  • Genetic association (17.49%)

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

Genetics, Genome-wide association study, Genetic association, Blood pressure and Genetic architecture are his primary areas of study. Many of his studies on Genetics involve topics that are commonly interrelated, such as Meta-analysis. His research in Genome-wide association study intersects with topics in SNP, Medical genetics, Locus, Heritability and Imputation.

His Imputation research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Minor allele frequency, Computational biology and 1000 Genomes Project. His study looks at the relationship between Genetic association and fields such as Demography, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems. His work in Blood pressure tackles topics such as Disease which are related to areas like Bioinformatics.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Worldwide trends in body-mass index, underweight, overweight, and obesity from 1975 to 2016: a pooled analysis of 2416 population-based measurement studies in 128·9 million children, adolescents, and adults (2180 citations)
  • Genome-wide association analyses identify 44 risk variants and refine the genetic architecture of major depression (1131 citations)
  • Worldwide trends in blood pressure from 1975 to 2015: a pooled analysis of 1479 population-based measurement studies with 19·1 million participants (824 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • Internal medicine

Andres Metspalu mainly investigates Genome-wide association study, Genetics, Genetic association, Genetic architecture and Medical genetics. Andres Metspalu has included themes like Body mass index, Bioinformatics, Bipolar disorder, Meta-analysis and Imputation in his Genome-wide association study study. His work in Single-nucleotide polymorphism, Heritability, Locus, Gene and Quantitative trait locus is related to Genetics.

His studies in Genetic association integrate themes in fields like Coding region, Coding and Candidate gene. His Genetic architecture study also includes

  • Human genetics that connect with fields like Peripheral blood,
  • Psychiatry, which have a strong connection to Glycemic. His Medical genetics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Coronary artery disease, Disease and Polymorphism.
