Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Gene
  • DNA

Her primary scientific interests are in Ecology, Ancient DNA, Pleistocene, Genetics and Zoology. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Megafauna, Glacial period, Woolly mammoth and Extinction. Her Ancient DNA study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Macrofossil, Paleontology, Molecular ecology, Demographic history and Palaeognathae.

Beth Shapiro works mostly in the field of Demographic history, limiting it down to topics relating to Skyline and, in certain cases, Coalescent theory. In general Pleistocene study, her work on Beringia often relates to the realm of Cenozoic, thereby connecting several areas of interest. Beth Shapiro has researched Zoology in several fields, including New mutation, Negative selection, Genome, Domestication and Fixation.

Her most cited work include:

  • Bayesian Coalescent Inference of Past Population Dynamics from Molecular Sequences (2313 citations)
  • Whole-genome analyses resolve early branches in the tree of life of modern birds (1174 citations)
  • Choosing appropriate substitution models for the phylogenetic analysis of protein-coding sequences (612 citations)

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

Her main research concerns Ancient DNA, Ecology, Evolutionary biology, Pleistocene and Genome. Her study focuses on the intersection of Ancient DNA and fields such as DNA with connections in the field of Computational biology. Her Ecology research incorporates elements of Megafauna, Holocene, Glacial period and Extinction.

Her research investigates the connection with Evolutionary biology and areas like Phylogenetics which intersect with concerns in Phylogenetic tree. Her study in Pleistocene is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Phylogeography and Cave. Genome is frequently linked to Haplotype in her study.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Ancient DNA (34.72%)
  • Ecology (30.19%)
  • Evolutionary biology (30.57%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Evolutionary biology (30.57%)
  • Genome (15.47%)
  • Ancient DNA (34.72%)

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

Her primary areas of study are Evolutionary biology, Genome, Ancient DNA, Genomics and Pleistocene. Her studies in Evolutionary biology integrate themes in fields like Genetic diversity, Phylogenetics, Lineage, Introgression and Environmental DNA. Her Genome research includes elements of Breed, Domestication and Haplotype.

Her work deals with themes such as Woolly rhinoceros, Arctic, Holocene, Great auk and Paleoecology, which intersect with Ancient DNA. Her study on Pleistocene also encompasses disciplines like

  • Population genomics that intertwine with fields like Tremarctos ornatus,
  • Canis which intersects with area such as Mitochondrial DNA, Clade and Archaeology. Her Demographic history study incorporates themes from Zoology and Effective population size.

Between 2018 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Tracking Five Millennia of Horse Management with Extensive Ancient Genome Time Series (79 citations)
  • Towards complete and error-free genome assemblies of all vertebrate species (55 citations)
  • How to Clone a Mammoth: The Science of De-Extinction (48 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Gene
  • DNA

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Evolutionary biology, Genome, Genomics, Genetic diversity and Computational biology. Her research on Evolutionary biology also deals with topics like

  • Lineage which is related to area like Early Pleistocene,
  • Selection most often made with reference to Phylogenetics. Her research integrates issues of Domestication and Organoid in her study of Genome.

Her research in Domestication focuses on subjects like Range, which are connected to Ancient DNA. Her Genomics research incorporates themes from Vertebrate, Ecosystem, Human evolutionary genetics and Reference genome. The Computational biology study combines topics in areas such as Cas9, Guide RNA, Nanopore sequencing, Complementary DNA and Ursus maritimus.
