2013 - Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS)
Bruce A. McDonald focuses on Genetics, Population genetics, Mycosphaerella graminicola, Restriction fragment length polymorphism and Gene flow. As part of his studies on Genetics, he frequently links adjacent subjects like Genetic diversity. His work deals with themes such as Genetic marker, Genetic variability, Genetic structure and Evolutionary biology, which intersect with Population genetics.
His research investigates the link between Mycosphaerella graminicola and topics such as Graminicola that cross with problems in Domestication, Fungicide, Quinone Outside Inhibitors and Cytochrome b. The Restriction fragment length polymorphism study combines topics in areas such as Genetic drift and Asexual reproduction. His Virulence research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Pathogen, Transposable element, Fungal protein and Botany.
His primary scientific interests are in Genetics, Gene, Pathogen, Mycosphaerella graminicola and Botany. His Genetics study frequently draws parallels with other fields, such as Population genetics. His studies in Population genetics integrate themes in fields like Evolutionary biology, Genetic drift, Genetic structure, Genetic diversity and Genetic variability.
His research integrates issues of Genetic architecture, Stagonospora, Host and Virulence in his study of Pathogen. Bruce A. McDonald works mostly in the field of Mycosphaerella graminicola, limiting it down to concerns involving Sexual reproduction and, occasionally, Asexual reproduction. In general Botany, his work in Poaceae, Hordeum vulgare and Pyricularia is often linked to Veterinary medicine linking many areas of study.
His primary areas of study are Genetics, Pathogen, Gene, Virulence and Genome. His study ties his expertise on Genetic diversity together with the subject of Genetics. Bruce A. McDonald interconnects Host, Rhizoctonia solani, Horticulture and Resistance in the investigation of issues within Pathogen.
His study in Gene is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Local adaptation and Effector. His Virulence research incorporates elements of Zoology, Morphogenesis, Genetic variation and Fungus. Bruce A. McDonald has included themes like Evolutionary biology and Selective sweep in his Genome study.
Bruce A. McDonald mostly deals with Genetics, Gene, Genome, Pathogen and Transposable element. Bruce A. McDonald undertakes interdisciplinary study in the fields of Genetics and Fungal genetics through his research. He usually deals with Gene and limits it to topics linked to Effector and Pathosystem.
His work carried out in the field of Genome brings together such families of science as Evolutionary biology, Selective sweep, Gene expression and Local adaptation. The concepts of his Pathogen study are interwoven with issues in Adaptation, Resistance, Fungus and Virulence. His studies deal with areas such as Ascomycota, Transcriptional regulation, Gene cluster, Fungal pathogen and Regulation of gene expression as well as Transposable element.
