What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Gene expression

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Genetics, Gene, RNA splicing, Exon and Alternative splicing. His studies in Genetics integrate themes in fields like Computational biology and Cell biology. In his study, Cancer genome sequencing, Personal genomics, Hybrid genome assembly, Cancer Genome Project and DNA sequencing theory is strongly linked to Gene density, which falls under the umbrella field of Computational biology.

His RNA splicing research incorporates elements of Principle of maximum entropy, Bioinformatics, Intron and splice. His study looks at the relationship between IsomiR and topics such as MicroRNA Gene, which overlap with RISC complex and Transcriptional regulation. His Lin-4 microRNA precursor research includes themes of MiRBase and Mirtron.

His most cited work include:

  • Initial sequencing and analysis of the human genome. (18816 citations)
  • Conserved seed pairing, often flanked by adenosines, indicates that thousands of human genes are microRNA targets (9679 citations)
  • Most mammalian mRNAs are conserved targets of microRNAs (5852 citations)

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

His main research concerns Genetics, RNA splicing, Gene, Exon and Computational biology. His Intron, Exonic splicing enhancer, Human genome, Genome and Splice site mutation study are his primary interests in Genetics. His Intron study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Spliceosome and splice.

His work deals with themes such as RNA-binding protein, Alternative splicing and Cell biology, which intersect with RNA splicing. He combines subjects such as Polyadenylation and Gene isoform with his study of Exon. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including RNA-Seq, Sequence analysis and Functional genomics.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (56.35%)
  • RNA splicing (41.62%)
  • Gene (30.46%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • RNA splicing (41.62%)
  • Cell biology (25.89%)
  • RNA (18.27%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in RNA splicing, Cell biology, RNA, Computational biology and Exon. His RNA splicing research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Transcriptome, Transcription, Alternative splicing and splice. His research in RNA tackles topics such as Intron which are related to areas like Splicing factor, Genomics, Schneider 2 cells and Drosophila melanogaster.

His Computational biology research integrates issues from RNA-Seq, ENCODE, RNA Stability and Functional genomics. His Exon study is concerned with the larger field of Genetics. Gene and Non-coding RNA are among the areas of Genetics where Christopher B. Burge concentrates his study.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Sequence, Structure, and Context Preferences of Human RNA Binding Proteins (204 citations)
  • Expanded encyclopaedias of DNA elements in the human and mouse genomes (141 citations)
  • Acquisition of a hybrid E/M state is essential for tumorigenicity of basal breast cancer cells. (140 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Gene expression

His primary scientific interests are in RNA-binding protein, RNA, Genetics, RNA splicing and Computational biology. His study in RNA-binding protein is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Alternative splicing and Cell biology. RNA is a subfield of Gene that Christopher B. Burge investigates.

Genetics is a component of his Post-transcriptional modification and Non-coding RNA studies. His RNA splicing research includes elements of Polyadenylation, Gene expression, Human genome and Exon. His studies deal with areas such as RNA-Seq, Genome and Functional genomics as well as Computational biology.
