Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Enzyme

Carl Wu mainly focuses on Cell biology, Chromatin, Molecular biology, Chromatin remodeling and ATP-dependent chromatin remodeling. His research integrates issues of Heat shock factor, Transcription factor, Cell tracking and Saccharomyces cerevisiae Proteins in his study of Cell biology. His research on Chromatin focuses in particular on Nucleosome.

His Molecular biology research incorporates themes from DNA and Recombinant DNA. His Chromatin remodeling research integrates issues from Response element and Histone octamer. The concepts of his ATP-dependent chromatin remodeling study are interwoven with issues in Ino80 complex and Nucleosome mobilization.

His most cited work include:

  • Heat Shock Transcription Factors: Structure and Regulation (1049 citations)
  • ATP-Driven Exchange of Histone H2AZ Variant Catalyzed by SWR1 Chromatin Remodeling Complex (1049 citations)
  • A PHD finger of NURF couples histone H3 lysine 4 trimethylation with chromatin remodelling (916 citations)

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

Cell biology, Nucleosome, Chromatin, Molecular biology and Histone are his primary areas of study. The study incorporates disciplines such as Heat shock protein, Heat shock factor, Transcription factor and Histone code in addition to Cell biology. His Nucleosome study focuses on ATP-dependent chromatin remodeling in particular.

Carl Wu has included themes like RNA polymerase II, Transcription and DNase I hypersensitive site in his Chromatin study. His work carried out in the field of Molecular biology brings together such families of science as Promoter, Molecular cloning and Gene, Activator. His studies deal with areas such as Protein structure, Centromere and Saccharomyces cerevisiae as well as Histone.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Cell biology (72.14%)
  • Nucleosome (50.00%)
  • Chromatin (36.43%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2011-2021)?

  • Nucleosome (50.00%)
  • Cell biology (72.14%)
  • Histone (34.29%)

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

His primary areas of study are Nucleosome, Cell biology, Histone, Chromatin and DNA. Carl Wu has researched Nucleosome in several fields, including Molecular biology, Saccharomyces cerevisiae and DNA-binding protein. His Cell biology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in RNA polymerase II, Saccharomyces cerevisiae Proteins and Histone code.

His Histone research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Biophysics, Protein subunit, Chaperone, Centromere and Protein structure. He is involved in the study of Chromatin that focuses on Chromatin remodeling in particular. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including DNA footprinting, Budding yeast and Footprinting.

Between 2011 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Fast multicolor 3D imaging using aberration-corrected multifocus microscopy (292 citations)
  • Fast multicolor 3D imaging using aberration-corrected multifocus microscopy (292 citations)
  • Fast multicolor 3D imaging using aberration-corrected multifocus microscopy (292 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Enzyme

His scientific interests lie mostly in Cell biology, Nucleosome, Histone, Microscopy and Materials science. His Nucleosome research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Histone H2A and Chaperone. His work on Histone H1 and ATP-dependent chromatin remodeling as part of general Histone research is often related to Histone methylation, thus linking different fields of science.

His work carried out in the field of Microscopy brings together such families of science as Saccharomyces cerevisiae Proteins, Cell tracking and Fluorescence microscope. Carl Wu has included themes like Biophysics, Conformational change and Dimer in his Genetics study. His studies deal with areas such as Enzyme complex, Histone octamer and Linker DNA as well as Histone code.
