Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Bacteria
  • Gene
  • Genome

His scientific interests lie mostly in Metagenomics, Genome, Genetics, Phylogenetics and Phylum. His Metagenomics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Ecology, 16S ribosomal RNA, Microbiology, Archaea and Bacterial phyla. His Genome research includes themes of Organism and Computational biology.

Brian C. Thomas studies Genetics, namely Gene. His research in Phylogenetics intersects with topics in Ribosomal RNA, Ribosome and Aquifer. Brian C. Thomas combines subjects such as Evolutionary biology, Photosynthesis, Genome size, Nitrogen fixation and Cyanobacteria with his study of Phylum.

His most cited work include:

  • A new view of the tree of life (1068 citations)
  • Unusual biology across a group comprising more than 15% of domain Bacteria (629 citations)
  • Thousands of microbial genomes shed light on interconnected biogeochemical processes in an aquifer system (535 citations)

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

His main research concerns Metagenomics, Genome, Genetics, Ecology and Archaea. His research integrates issues of Microbiome, Evolutionary biology, Organism, Microbiology and Phylum in his study of Metagenomics. The Genome study combines topics in areas such as Plasmid and Computational biology.

Brian C. Thomas interconnects Hypersaline lake, Carbon fixation, Microbial ecology and Microbial population biology in the investigation of issues within Ecology. His work on Thermoplasmatales as part of general Archaea study is frequently linked to Ferroplasma, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science. The study incorporates disciplines such as Ribosomal RNA and Biodiversity in addition to Phylogenetics.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Metagenomics (47.97%)
  • Genome (34.15%)
  • Genetics (32.52%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2020)?

  • Metagenomics (47.97%)
  • Genome (34.15%)
  • Microbial population biology (15.45%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Metagenomics, Genome, Microbial population biology, Genetics and Microbiome. His Metagenomics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Organism, Ecology, Microbial ecology and Aquifer. His Ecology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Evolutionary biology, Phylogenetics and Bacteria.

His Genome study incorporates themes from Phylum, Computational biology and CRISPR. In his research, he performs multidisciplinary study on Genetics and Amplicon. His work carried out in the field of Microbiome brings together such families of science as Zoology and Colonization, Microbiology.

Between 2016 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • New CRISPR–Cas systems from uncultivated microbes (316 citations)
  • Recovery of genomes from metagenomes via a dereplication, aggregation and scoring strategy. (248 citations)
  • Expanded diversity of microbial groups that shape the dissimilatory sulfur cycle. (135 citations)

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

  • Bacteria
  • Gene
  • Genome

Brian C. Thomas mostly deals with Metagenomics, Genome, Phylum, Genetics and Microbiome. His Metagenomics study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Enterococcus faecalis, Klebsiella pneumoniae and Archaea. Brian C. Thomas has researched Genome in several fields, including Zoology, Ecology, CRISPR, Gastrointestinal Microbiome and Computational biology.

His studies in Phylum integrate themes in fields like Microbial ecology, Gemmatimonadetes and Microbial population biology. In the field of Genetics, his study on Lactobacillus, Gardnerella vaginalis, Gestational age and Pregnancy overlaps with subjects such as Amplicon. His study in Microbiome is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Host and Colonization, Microbiology.
