Her primary scientific interests are in Genetics, Chromosome, Chromosome breakage, Zea mays and Meiosis. Barbara McClintock merges Genetics with Ring chromosome in her study. Her Chromosome research includes elements of Ploidy, Somatic cell and Cell biology.
The study incorporates disciplines such as Evolutionary biology, Genome, Transposition and DNA Transposable Elements in addition to Zea mays. Her work deals with themes such as Chromosome Organization, Mutation and Cytogenetics, which intersect with Transposition. Her Chromosomal translocation research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Prophase, Telophase and Homologous Association, Homologous chromosome.
The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Genetics, Zea mays, Gene, Regulation of gene expression and Chromosome. Her Genetics and Mutation, Chromosome breakage, Meiosis, Gene expression and Cytogenetics investigations all form part of her Genetics research activities. The Chromosome breakage study combines topics in areas such as Transposition, Mitosis and Variegation.
As part of one scientific family, Barbara McClintock deals mainly with the area of Meiosis, narrowing it down to issues related to the Homologous chromosome, and often Prophase. In her research, Plant development is intimately related to Botany, which falls under the overarching field of Zea mays. Her Chromosome study incorporates themes from Genetic linkage and Chromosomal translocation.
Her scientific interests lie mostly in Genetics, Regulation of gene expression, Zea mays, Gene and Gene expression. Genetics is closely attributed to Evolutionary biology in her study. She combines subjects such as Chromosome breakage and DNA Transposable Elements with her study of Evolutionary biology.
Her study in the fields of Gene control under the domain of Regulation of gene expression overlaps with other disciplines such as Action and Normal functioning. Her research integrates issues of Mutation, Biotechnology and Mutation in her study of Zea mays. She has included themes like Phenotype, Locus and Transposable element in her Gene expression study.
Barbara McClintock mainly investigates Genetics, Regulation of gene expression, Zea mays, Genome and Gene. Her studies deal with areas such as Botany, Biotechnology and Mutation as well as Regulation of gene expression. She integrates Zea mays with Normal functioning in her study.
Her study in Genome is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Evolutionary biology, Chromosome breakage and Computational biology. Her work on Mutation as part of her general Gene study is frequently connected to Control, Action and Rate of development, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science.
