Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Botany
  • Enzyme
  • Biochemistry

His primary scientific interests are in Horticulture, Botany, Ripening, Postharvest and Biochemistry. His Horticulture research focuses on Carbon dioxide and how it relates to Acetaldehyde and Fragaria. His research in Botany intersects with topics in Ethyl acetate and Antioxidant.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Gene expression, Agronomy, Shelf life, 1-Methylcyclopropene and Spermidine. Christopher B. Watkins interconnects Quality, Crop, Biotechnology, Horticultural crops and Agricultural engineering in the investigation of issues within Postharvest. His work on Putrescine, Polyamine and Spermine as part of general Biochemistry study is frequently linked to Climacteric, bridging the gap between disciplines.

His most cited work include:

  • The use of 1-methylcyclopropene (1-MCP) on fruits and vegetables. (611 citations)
  • Influence of Salicylic Acid on H2O2 Production, Oxidative Stress, and H2O2-Metabolizing Enzymes (Salicylic Acid-Mediated Oxidative Damage Requires H2O2) (484 citations)
  • Antioxidant and Antiproliferative Activities of Strawberries (382 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Horticulture, Botany, Postharvest, Ripening and Cultivar. His Horticulture study frequently draws connections to adjacent fields such as 1-Methylcyclopropene. His Botany research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Acetaldehyde, Carbon dioxide and Antioxidant.

His Postharvest research focuses on subjects like Quality, which are linked to Agricultural engineering. The various areas that Christopher B. Watkins examines in his Ripening study include Pectinase and Biochemistry, Cell wall. His work is dedicated to discovering how Biochemistry, Food science are connected with Respiration rate and other disciplines.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Horticulture (58.70%)
  • Botany (27.83%)
  • Postharvest (23.04%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2013-2021)?

  • Horticulture (58.70%)
  • Postharvest (23.04%)
  • 1-Methylcyclopropene (16.96%)

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

His main research concerns Horticulture, Postharvest, 1-Methylcyclopropene, Ripening and Cultivar. In most of his Horticulture studies, his work intersects topics such as Botany. In general Botany study, his work on Malus, Calyx and Chilling injury often relates to the realm of Rhizosphere, thereby connecting several areas of interest.

Christopher B. Watkins has included themes like Biotechnology and State in his Postharvest study. His Ripening study combines topics in areas such as Solanum, Starch and Cell biology. His study in Cultivar is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Fruits and vegetables, Soil science and Plant breeding.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Postharvest treatments of fresh produce. (125 citations)
  • Transcriptomic events associated with internal browning of apple during postharvest storage (44 citations)
  • Understanding development and ripening of fruit crops in an ‘omics’ era (37 citations)

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

  • Enzyme
  • Botany
  • Biochemistry

Ripening, Postharvest, Metabolism, Horticulture and Botany are his primary areas of study. Ripening is a subfield of Food science that he explores. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Carbon dioxide and 1-Methylcyclopropene.

The Postharvest study combines topics in areas such as Quality, Biotechnology and Shelf life. His work carried out in the field of Horticulture brings together such families of science as Pectin and Calcium. His specific area of interest is Botany, where Christopher B. Watkins studies Cultivar.
