Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • Mutation

Her primary scientific interests are in Genetics, Allele, Immunology, Asthma and Human leukocyte antigen. Genetics is a component of her Gene, Quantitative trait locus, Linkage disequilibrium, Genetic association and Genetic linkage studies. Her Allele research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in HLA-G Antigens and Histocompatibility.

Her work in the fields of Immunology, such as Immune system, Autoimmune disease, Atopic dermatitis and Immunopathology, intersects with other areas such as Betacoronavirus. The Atopy research she does as part of her general Asthma study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as 2019-20 coronavirus outbreak, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science. The concepts of her Human leukocyte antigen study are interwoven with issues in Haplotype, Genotype, Transplantation and Pregnancy.

Her most cited work include:

  • Genome-wide association study identifies a second prostate cancer susceptibility variant at 8q24. (807 citations)
  • PRDM9 Is a Major Determinant of Meiotic Recombination Hotspots in Humans and Mice (728 citations)
  • A common variant associated with prostate cancer in European and African populations (698 citations)

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

Her primary areas of study are Genetics, Immunology, Asthma, Allele and Genome-wide association study. Her study involves Gene, Single-nucleotide polymorphism, Haplotype, Founder effect and Linkage disequilibrium, a branch of Genetics. Her studies link Pregnancy with Immunology.

Her Asthma research includes themes of Epigenetics, Disease and DNA methylation. Her Allele study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Locus and Genotype. Carole Ober focuses mostly in the field of Genome-wide association study, narrowing it down to topics relating to Quantitative trait locus and, in certain cases, Heritability and Genetic variation.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (50.23%)
  • Immunology (27.70%)
  • Asthma (25.23%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Asthma (25.23%)
  • Immunology (27.70%)
  • Genome-wide association study (18.02%)

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

Carole Ober mainly investigates Asthma, Immunology, Genome-wide association study, Genetics and DNA methylation. Her work deals with themes such as Odds ratio, Prospective cohort study and Cohort, which intersect with Asthma. The Genome-wide association study study combines topics in areas such as Human leukocyte antigen, Disease, Genetic association and Genetic architecture.

Genotype, Quantitative trait locus, Gene and Allele are subfields of Genetics in which her conducts study. Her study of Haplotype is a part of Allele. The various areas that Carole Ober examines in her DNA methylation study include Methylation and Epigenetics.

Between 2017 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Multiancestry association study identifies new asthma risk loci that colocalize with immune-cell enhancer marks (203 citations)
  • Association of respiratory allergy, asthma, and expression of the SARS-CoV-2 receptor ACE2. (188 citations)
  • Assembly of a pan-genome from deep sequencing of 910 humans of African descent (141 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • Mutation

Carole Ober focuses on Asthma, Genome-wide association study, Immunology, Allele and Genetic association. Her Asthma research integrates issues from Cohort and Bioinformatics. Her study in Genome-wide association study is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Odds ratio, Disease, Genetic architecture and Linkage disequilibrium.

Her Allele research is within the category of Genetics. Her study brings together the fields of Confounding and Genetics. Her Allergy research incorporates themes from Human leukocyte antigen, Case-control study and Age of onset.
