Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Bacteria
  • Gene
  • Ecology

His primary scientific interests are in Phylogenetics, Genetics, Genome, Metagenomics and Archaea. As part of one scientific family, Brett J. Baker deals mainly with the area of Phylogenetics, narrowing it down to issues related to the Computational biology, and often Lokiarchaeota, Superphylum, Biogenesis and Bioinformatics. His Gene, DNA sequencing and Human genetics study in the realm of Genetics interacts with subjects such as Galdieria sulphuraria.

As a member of one scientific family, Brett J. Baker mostly works in the field of Metagenomics, focusing on Phylum and, on occasion, Nutrient, Estuary, Gammaproteobacteria, Biogeochemical cycle and Bacterial genome size. His Archaea study frequently draws connections to adjacent fields such as Mineralogy. His studies deal with areas such as Genomic data and Microbial ecology as well as Ecology.

His most cited work include:

  • A new view of the tree of life (1068 citations)
  • Microbial communities in acid mine drainage (806 citations)
  • Community Proteomics of a Natural Microbial Biofilm (531 citations)

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

Brett J. Baker mainly investigates Archaea, Ecology, Genome, Metagenomics and Genetics. His Archaea research includes elements of Evolutionary biology, Phylum, Guaymas Basin and Phylogenetics. His work carried out in the field of Phylogenetics brings together such families of science as Computational biology and Genomics.

His Computational biology study incorporates themes from Reference genome, DNA sequencing and Sequence analysis. His work deals with themes such as Microorganism, Deep sea and Microbial ecology, which intersect with Ecology. His Metagenomics study frequently draws connections between adjacent fields such as Bacterial genome size.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Archaea (24.26%)
  • Ecology (21.89%)
  • Genome (17.16%)

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

  • Archaea (24.26%)
  • Phylum (11.24%)
  • Genome (17.16%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Archaea, Phylum, Genome, Superphylum and Ecology. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Evolutionary biology, Phylogenetics, Evolutionary ecology and Metagenomics. His Evolutionary biology study combines topics in areas such as Lineage, Gene and Ancestral reconstruction.

His Genome research incorporates themes from Taxonomy, Computational biology, DNA sequencing and Type. His work in Superphylum covers topics such as Guaymas Basin which are related to areas like Methane and Hot spring. As part of the same scientific family, he usually focuses on Ecology, concentrating on Microorganism and intersecting with Coral reef, Antimicrobial, Ecosystem and Competition.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Asgard archaea capable of anaerobic hydrocarbon cycling (77 citations)
  • Proposal of the reverse flow model for the origin of the eukaryotic cell based on comparative analyses of Asgard archaeal metabolism (73 citations)
  • Diversity, ecology and evolution of Archaea (44 citations)

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

  • Bacteria
  • Gene
  • Artificial intelligence

His scientific interests lie mostly in Archaea, Metagenomics, Phylum, Genome and Phylogenetics. He works in the field of Archaea, focusing on Lokiarchaeota in particular. His Metagenomics study is focused on Genetics in general.

His Phylum research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Ecology and Ecology. His research combines Computational biology and Genome. His Phylogenetics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Evolutionary biology, Microbial ecology and Evolutionary ecology.
