Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Chromosome
  • DNA

Anne M. Villeneuve spends much of her time researching Genetics, Meiosis, Homologous chromosome, Chromosomal crossover and Synapsis. Her research brings together the fields of Cell biology and Genetics. Her study of Meiotic S phase is a part of Meiosis.

Her Homologous chromosome study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Chromatin, Chromosome and Caenorhabditis elegans. Her Synapsis research integrates issues from Balancer chromosome, Chromosome 19, Chromosome segregation and Satellite chromosome, Chromosome 16. Her study looks at the relationship between Homologous recombination and topics such as Genetic recombination, which overlap with Meiotic chromosome segregation.

Her most cited work include:

  • Meiotic recombination in C. elegans initiates by a conserved mechanism and is dispensable for homologous chromosome synapsis. (625 citations)
  • Synapsis-dependent and -independent mechanisms stabilize homolog pairing during meiotic prophase in C. elegans (310 citations)
  • Synaptonemal complex assembly in C. elegans is dispensable for loading strand-exchange proteins but critical for proper completion of recombination. (309 citations)

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

Her scientific interests lie mostly in Genetics, Meiosis, Homologous chromosome, Prophase and Caenorhabditis elegans. Her Synapsis, Chromosomal crossover, Chiasma, X chromosome and Genetic recombination study are her primary interests in Genetics. In the field of Meiosis, her study on Synaptonemal complex overlaps with subjects such as Pairing.

Her Synaptonemal complex research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Centromere and Mutant. Her Homologous chromosome course of study focuses on Sister chromatids and Chromatid and Cohesin. Anne M. Villeneuve has researched Caenorhabditis elegans in several fields, including Mutation, Genome, Chromatin, RNA interference and Chromosome.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (77.11%)
  • Meiosis (66.27%)
  • Homologous chromosome (48.19%)

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

  • Meiosis (66.27%)
  • Homologous chromosome (48.19%)
  • Prophase (37.35%)

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

Anne M. Villeneuve mainly investigates Meiosis, Homologous chromosome, Prophase, Genetics and Synaptonemal complex. She interconnects Sister chromatids, Homologous recombination and Cell biology in the investigation of issues within Meiosis. Her study looks at the relationship between Prophase and fields such as Caenorhabditis elegans, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems.

Her research in Genetics is mostly focused on Allele. In her study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Synaptonemal complex, Meiotic Prophase I and Genetic recombination is strongly linked to Chromosomal crossover. Her Synapsis research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Mutant and Polo-like kinase.

Between 2016 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Meiotic recombination modulates the structure and dynamics of the synaptonemal complex during C. elegans meiosis. (61 citations)
  • Dynamic Architecture of DNA Repair Complexes and the Synaptonemal Complex at Sites of Meiotic Recombination (58 citations)
  • Interdependent and separable functions of Caenorhabditis elegans MRN-C complex members couple formation and repair of meiotic DSBs. (21 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Chromosome
  • DNA

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Meiosis, Homologous recombination, Prophase, Homologous chromosome and DNA repair. Her Meiosis study results in a more complete grasp of Genetics. Her research in the fields of X chromosome, Synapsis, Chromosome movement and Non-homologous end joining overlaps with other disciplines such as Pairing.

Many of her studies on Prophase involve topics that are commonly interrelated, such as Caenorhabditis elegans. Her work deals with themes such as Molecular biology, Compartment and Helicase, which intersect with DNA repair. The Chromatid study combines topics in areas such as Meiotic chromosome, Sister chromatids, Cohesin and Cytogenetics.
