Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Pathology

His primary scientific interests are in Echinococcus granulosus, Veterinary medicine, Genotype, Mitochondrial DNA and Epidemiology. Antonio Varcasia is studying Cystic echinococcosis, which is a component of Echinococcus granulosus. He does research in Veterinary medicine, focusing on Zoonosis specifically.

His Genotype research includes themes of Prevalence and Polymerase chain reaction. His research in Mitochondrial DNA intersects with topics in Echinococcus, Phylogenetics and Monophyly. Antonio Varcasia combines subjects such as Feces and Animal science with his study of Epidemiology.

His most cited work include:

  • A novel phylogeny for the genus Echinococcus, based on nuclear data, challenges relationships based on mitochondrial evidence (127 citations)
  • Molecular characterization of Echinococcus granulosus in sheep and goats of Peloponnesus, Greece. (86 citations)
  • Genetic variation within and between G1 and G3 genotypes of Echinococcus granulosus in Italy revealed by multilocus DNA sequencing (85 citations)

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

Antonio Varcasia mainly investigates Veterinary medicine, Echinococcus granulosus, Zoology, Epidemiology and Cystic echinococcosis. His Veterinary medicine research is mostly focused on the topic Zoonosis. The Echinococcus granulosus study combines topics in areas such as Evolutionary biology, Species complex, Mitochondrial DNA, Echinococcosis and Genotype.

The Zoology study which covers Haplotype that intersects with Genetic variability. His Cystic echinococcosis study improves the overall literature in Pathology. His work carried out in the field of Feces brings together such families of science as Toltrazuril and Animal science.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Veterinary medicine (41.96%)
  • Echinococcus granulosus (26.57%)
  • Zoology (20.28%)

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

  • Veterinary medicine (41.96%)
  • Echinococcus granulosus (26.57%)
  • Zoology (20.28%)

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

His main research concerns Veterinary medicine, Echinococcus granulosus, Zoology, Genotype and Wild boar. Antonio Varcasia is interested in Zoonosis, which is a field of Veterinary medicine. Antonio Varcasia has included themes like Evolutionary biology, Fertility, Species complex and Haplogroup in his Echinococcus granulosus study.

The concepts of his Zoology study are interwoven with issues in Mediterranean climate, Identification and Haplotype. His Genotype course of study focuses on Mediterranean Basin and Ungulate and Spleen. His Wild boar study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Cysticercosis, Cystic echinococcosis, 18s rdna and Internal transcribed spacer.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Molecular phylogeny based on six nuclear genes suggests that Echinococcus granulosus sensu lato genotypes G6/G7 and G8/G10 can be regarded as two distinct species. (39 citations)
  • Global phylogeography and genetic diversity of the zoonotic tapeworm Echinococcus granulosus sensu stricto genotype G1 (37 citations)
  • The benefits of analysing complete mitochondrial genomes: Deep insights into the phylogeny and population structure of Echinococcus granulosus sensu lato genotypes G6 and G7 (26 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Pathology

His primary areas of study are Echinococcus granulosus, Genetic variation, Genotype, Evolutionary biology and Wild boar. His work in Genetic variation covers topics such as Mitochondrial DNA which are related to areas like Mediterranean climate, Genus, Biological dispersal and Genome. His Evolutionary biology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Sensu, Species complex and Genetic diversity.

His studies deal with areas such as Genetic variability and Phylogeography as well as Genetic diversity. His Wild boar research is classified as research in Veterinary medicine. His Veterinary medicine study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Fertility, Mediterranean Basin, Ungulate, Spleen and Risk factor.
