What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Enzyme

His primary scientific interests are in Sigma factor, Genetics, Transcription, Biochemistry and RNA polymerase. His work carried out in the field of Sigma factor brings together such families of science as Heat shock protein, Heat shock, Regulon and Anti-sigma factors. In his research, CRISPR interference and CRISPR is intimately related to Computational biology, which falls under the overarching field of Genetics.

Within one scientific family, Carol A. Gross focuses on topics pertaining to DNA under Transcription, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Peptide sequence, Bacterial genetics and Binding site. Carol A. Gross focuses mostly in the field of Biochemistry, narrowing it down to matters related to Cell biology and, in some cases, Bacterial outer membrane, Periplasmic space and Proteolysis. His RNA polymerase research includes elements of Promoter and Molecular biology.

His most cited work include:

  • From the regulation of peptidoglycan synthesis to bacterial growth and morphology (811 citations)
  • Quantifying Absolute Protein Synthesis Rates Reveals Principles Underlying Allocation of Cellular Resources (795 citations)
  • The sigma 70 family: sequence conservation and evolutionary relationships. (770 citations)

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

His main research concerns RNA polymerase, Sigma factor, Biochemistry, Molecular biology and Genetics. RNA polymerase is a subfield of Transcription that Carol A. Gross studies. His work deals with themes such as Anti-sigma factors and Transcription factor, Regulon, which intersect with Sigma factor.

His study in the fields of Escherichia coli, Chaperone and Amino acid under the domain of Biochemistry overlaps with other disciplines such as Inner membrane. His Molecular biology research also works with subjects such as

  • Mutant which intersects with area such as Phenotype,
  • Heat shock protein that intertwine with fields like GroEL. His study in the field of Gene, Bacillus subtilis and Regulation of gene expression is also linked to topics like rpoB.

He most often published in these fields:

  • RNA polymerase (31.96%)
  • Sigma factor (30.59%)
  • Biochemistry (29.22%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Computational biology (15.07%)
  • Gene (27.40%)
  • Bacillus subtilis (6.39%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Computational biology, Gene, Bacillus subtilis, Function and Bacteria. His Gene study contributes to a more complete understanding of Genetics. His Bacillus subtilis study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Biochemistry and Gene knockdown.

His studies in Genome integrate themes in fields like Promoter, Sigma factor and Regulon. His Polymerase research incorporates elements of RNA polymerase, Transcription and Cell division. His RNA polymerase research includes themes of Molecular biology and Polyacrylamide.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • A Multiplexed Single-Cell CRISPR Screening Platform Enables Systematic Dissection of the Unfolded Protein Response (461 citations)
  • A Comprehensive, CRISPR-based Functional Analysis of Essential Genes in Bacteria (350 citations)
  • Construction and Analysis of Two Genome-Scale Deletion Libraries for Bacillus subtilis (210 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Enzyme

Carol A. Gross mainly focuses on Gene, Genetics, Computational biology, CRISPR interference and Bacillus subtilis. His biological study focuses on Gene expression. His work on Genetics deals in particular with Essential gene, Ribosome profiling and Messenger RNA.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including CRISPR, Gene knockdown, Cell morphology, Gene targeting and Gene regulatory network. He has included themes like Regulon, Biochemistry, Peptidoglycan, Teichoic acid and Cell envelope in his Bacillus subtilis study. While the research belongs to areas of Translation, Carol A. Gross spends his time largely on the problem of Heat shock, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Cell biology.
