Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • DNA

His main research concerns Evolutionary biology, Genetics, Phylogenetic tree, Trichoplax and Placozoa. His studies in Evolutionary biology integrate themes in fields like Erithacus, Gene and Identification. The concepts of his Phylogenetic tree study are interwoven with issues in Taxon, Computational biology and Gene family.

His Trichoplax study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Zoology, Eumetazoa and Nuclear gene. His Placozoa study incorporates themes from Complementation, Hypoxia-Inducible Factor 1, Transcription factor and Peptide sequence. His research in Phylum intersects with topics in Bilateria and Hox gene.

His most cited work include:

  • The Trichoplax genome and the nature of placozoans (677 citations)
  • The magnitude of global marine species diversity (540 citations)
  • Medusozoan Phylogeny and Character Evolution Clarified by New Large and Small Subunit rDNA Data and an Assessment of the Utility of Phylogenetic Mixture Models (271 citations)

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

Bernd Schierwater mostly deals with Evolutionary biology, Trichoplax, Placozoa, Genetics and Phylogenetics. The study incorporates disciplines such as Sister group, Bilateria, Phylogenetic tree, Genome and Mitochondrial DNA in addition to Evolutionary biology. Bernd Schierwater has researched Phylogenetic tree in several fields, including Taxon and Systematics.

His work deals with themes such as Computational biology, Multicellular organism, Intron and Cell biology, which intersect with Trichoplax. His Placozoa study is associated with Phylum. His work carried out in the field of Phylogenetics brings together such families of science as Comparative genomics, Genomics, Hydrozoa and Gene family.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Evolutionary biology (79.58%)
  • Trichoplax (81.69%)
  • Placozoa (69.72%)

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

  • Trichoplax (81.69%)
  • Evolutionary biology (79.58%)
  • Genome (37.32%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Trichoplax, Evolutionary biology, Genome, Phylogenetics and Placozoa. His work is dedicated to discovering how Trichoplax, Cell biology are connected with Bcl-2 family and Evolution of nervous systems and other disciplines. His Evolutionary biology research includes elements of Taxon, Lineage, Phylogenetic tree and Intron.

His Phylogenetic tree study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Systematics and Mitochondrial DNA. The concepts of his Phylogenetics study are interwoven with issues in Mutualism, Phylum and Intracellular parasite. His Placozoa study is focused on Genetics in general.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Comparative genomics and the nature of placozoan species. (40 citations)
  • Comparative genomics and the nature of placozoan species. (40 citations)
  • Comparative genomics and the nature of placozoan species. (40 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Genetics

His scientific interests lie mostly in Trichoplax, Evolutionary biology, Systematics, Mitochondrial DNA and Species complex. His study on Trichoplax is mostly dedicated to connecting different topics, such as Genetic Speciation. His studies deal with areas such as Phylum, Placozoa and Comparative genomics, Genomics as well as Genetic Speciation.

His research integrates issues of Tree of life, Phylogenetic tree, Sister group and Intron in his study of Systematics. Cell biology, Neurosecretion, Live cell imaging, Synaptic signaling and Evolution of nervous systems are fields of study that intersect with his Cell type study. His research on Phylogenetics frequently links to adjacent areas such as Genetic diversity.
