Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Genetics

His scientific interests lie mostly in Genetics, Genome-wide association study, Single-nucleotide polymorphism, Disease and Internal medicine. Gene, Locus, LRRK2, Genetic variation and Linkage disequilibrium are the subjects of his Genetics studies. The study incorporates disciplines such as Meta-analysis, Quantitative trait locus, Genetic association, Alzheimer's disease and Candidate gene in addition to Genome-wide association study.

His Single-nucleotide polymorphism research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Apolipoprotein E and Allele frequency. His Disease research includes themes of Mendelian inheritance and Bioinformatics. He has researched Parkinson's disease in several fields, including Genotyping and Parkinsonism.

His most cited work include:

  • α-Synuclein Locus Triplication Causes Parkinson's Disease (3413 citations)
  • A hexanucleotide repeat expansion in C9ORF72 is the cause of chromosome 9p21-linked ALS-FTD (2859 citations)
  • Genome-wide association study identifies variants at CLU and PICALM associated with Alzheimer's disease (2556 citations)

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

Andrew B. Singleton mainly investigates Genetics, Disease, Genome-wide association study, Parkinson's disease and Internal medicine. His studies in Gene, Single-nucleotide polymorphism, Locus, Mutation and Genetic variation are all subfields of Genetics research. His Disease research includes elements of Exome sequencing, Computational biology, Cohort and Bioinformatics.

His Genome-wide association study course of study focuses on Expression quantitative trait loci and Quantitative trait locus. His Parkinson's disease research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Glucocerebrosidase, Mutation, Parkinsonism and Degenerative disease. The various areas that Andrew B. Singleton examines in his Internal medicine study include Gastroenterology, Endocrinology and Oncology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (54.09%)
  • Disease (34.75%)
  • Genome-wide association study (29.56%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Disease (34.75%)
  • Parkinson's disease (22.01%)
  • Genetics (54.09%)

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

Disease, Parkinson's disease, Genetics, Genome-wide association study and Internal medicine are his primary areas of study. The concepts of his Disease study are interwoven with issues in Bioinformatics, Gene, Single-nucleotide polymorphism, Computational biology and Genetic architecture. His work carried out in the field of Parkinson's disease brings together such families of science as Biomarker, Movement disorders and Parkinsonism.

His study looks at the relationship between Genome-wide association study and topics such as Mendelian randomization, which overlap with Observational study. Andrew B. Singleton works mostly in the field of Internal medicine, limiting it down to topics relating to Oncology and, in certain cases, Apolipoprotein E and Allele, as a part of the same area of interest. His LRRK2 study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Odds ratio, Penetrance, Lewy body and Mutation.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Identification of novel risk loci, causal insights, and heritable risk for Parkinson's disease: a meta-analysis of genome-wide association studies (353 citations)
  • The genetic architecture of Parkinson's disease (122 citations)
  • Parkinson's disease age at onset genome-wide association study: Defining heritability, genetic loci, and α-synuclein mechanisms. (108 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Mutation

His primary scientific interests are in Disease, Parkinson's disease, Internal medicine, Genome-wide association study and Genetics. His studies in Disease integrate themes in fields like Single-nucleotide polymorphism, Computational biology and Genetic architecture. His Parkinson's disease research incorporates elements of Heterozygote advantage and Genetic risk.

Andrew B. Singleton combines subjects such as Oncology and DNA methylation with his study of Internal medicine. His Genome-wide association study research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Dementia and Locus. Genetics and Context are two areas of study in which Andrew B. Singleton engages in interdisciplinary work.
