2014 - Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS)

Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Genetics

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Genetics, Gene, Molecular biology, Genome and Genetic marker. His study in Quantitative trait locus, Candidate gene, Genomics, Genotype and Gene mapping is carried out as part of his Genetics studies. His research in Genomics focuses on subjects like Computational biology, which are connected to Gene expression profiling.

His studies in Molecular biology integrate themes in fields like Homeobox, Lipopolysaccharide, Synteny, CD14 and Innate immune system. His study looks at the relationship between Genome and topics such as Human genetics, which overlap with Sequence analysis, In silico, Sequence and cDNA library. Christopher K. Tuggle interconnects Marbled meat and Chromosome 7 in the investigation of issues within Genetic marker.

His most cited work include:

  • Analyses of pig genomes provide insight into porcine demography and evolution (889 citations)
  • The PiGMaP consortium linkage map of the pig (Sus scrofa). (402 citations)
  • The estrogen receptor locus is associated with a major gene influencing litter size in pigs (329 citations)

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

Christopher K. Tuggle spends much of his time researching Genetics, Gene, Molecular biology, Gene expression and Genome. His works in Quantitative trait locus, Gene mapping, Genetic linkage, Genetic marker and Chromosome are all subjects of inquiry into Genetics. Christopher K. Tuggle works mostly in the field of Gene, limiting it down to topics relating to Salmonella and, in certain cases, Microbiology and Bacterial Shedding, as a part of the same area of interest.

His research in Molecular biology intersects with topics in Complementary DNA and Restriction fragment length polymorphism. His Gene expression research incorporates elements of Endocrinology, Internal medicine and Salmonella enterica. The concepts of his Genome study are interwoven with issues in Annotation and Computational biology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (41.35%)
  • Gene (34.96%)
  • Molecular biology (18.05%)

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

  • Genome (13.16%)
  • Computational biology (12.78%)
  • Immune system (9.77%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Genome, Computational biology, Immune system, Immunology and Severe combined immunodeficiency. His study with Genome involves better knowledge in Gene. His Computational biology research incorporates themes from Chromatin, Phenome and Functional annotation.

The various areas that Christopher K. Tuggle examines in his Immunology study include Transcriptome and Heterologous. Christopher K. Tuggle combines subjects such as Haematopoiesis, Xenotransplantation, Mutation, Lymph node and Molecular biology with his study of Severe combined immunodeficiency. Fork and Genetics are two areas of study in which Christopher K. Tuggle engages in interdisciplinary research.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Functional Annotation of Animal Genomes (FAANG): Current Achievements and Roadmap (48 citations)
  • An improved pig reference genome sequence to enable pig genetics and genomics research (33 citations)
  • Improved annotation of the domestic pig genome through integration of Iso-Seq and RNA-seq data. (18 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Genetics

His primary areas of investigation include Computational biology, Genome, Xenotransplantation, Severe combined immunodeficiency and Immune system. His Computational biology research integrates issues from Chromatin, Gene, Phenome and Genomics. Christopher K. Tuggle performs multidisciplinary study in Gene and Domestic pig in his work.

In his research on the topic of Xenotransplantation, Phagocytosis, Signal-regulatory protein alpha, Molecular biology, Peripheral blood mononuclear cell and Antibody is strongly related with Stem cell. His studies deal with areas such as Haematopoiesis and Immunology as well as Severe combined immunodeficiency. His Immune system study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Immunohistochemistry, Regenerative medicine, Biocontainment, Specific-pathogen-free and Cancer therapy.
