Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Bacteria
  • Gene
  • Enzyme

Colin Hill mainly investigates Microbiology, Bacteriocin, Bacteria, Biochemistry and Listeria monocytogenes. His study in Microbiology focuses on Antimicrobial in particular. His Bacteriocin research integrates issues from Nisin, Food science and Lactococcus lactis, Lactococcus.

Colin Hill has researched Food science in several fields, including Biotechnology and Lactic acid. His Bacteria study combines topics in areas such as Lysogenic cycle, Host, Enterobacteriaceae and Botany. His Listeria monocytogenes research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Pathogen, Sigma factor, Mutant and Intracellular.

His most cited work include:

  • Expert consensus document: The International Scientific Association for Probiotics and Prebiotics consensus statement on the scope and appropriate use of the term probiotic (2573 citations)
  • Gut microbiota composition correlates with diet and health in the elderly (1768 citations)
  • Bacteriocins: developing innate immunity for food (1525 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Microbiology, Bacteriocin, Bacteria, Listeria monocytogenes and Antimicrobial. His Microbiology research incorporates themes from Biochemistry, Lactococcus lactis, Mutant and Virulence. Colin Hill interconnects Bacteriophage, Plasmid and Streptococcaceae in the investigation of issues within Lactococcus lactis.

His research on Bacteriocin also deals with topics like

  • Food science which is related to area like Food microbiology,
  • Biotechnology which intersects with area such as Probiotic. His Bacteria research is mostly focused on the topic Lactic acid. Much of his study explores Listeria monocytogenes relationship to Gene.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Microbiology (53.39%)
  • Bacteriocin (28.66%)
  • Bacteria (19.91%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Microbiology (53.39%)
  • Microbiome (8.14%)
  • Bacteriocin (28.66%)

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

Colin Hill mostly deals with Microbiology, Microbiome, Bacteriocin, Antimicrobial and Bacteria. His research in Microbiology intersects with topics in Bacteriophage, Listeria monocytogenes and Staphylococcus aureus. He studied Bacteriocin and Food science that intersect with Lactic acid and Food spoilage.

Colin Hill is interested in Nisin, which is a field of Antimicrobial. His studies deal with areas such as Biochemistry, Peptide, Lactococcus lactis and Biofilm as well as Nisin. His Bacteria research incorporates elements of Isolation, Whole genome sequencing and Escherichia coli.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Next-generation probiotics: the spectrum from probiotics to live biotherapeutics (209 citations)
  • Bacteriophages of the Human Gut: The “Known Unknown” of the Microbiome (143 citations)
  • The Human Gut Virome Is Highly Diverse, Stable, and Individual Specific (125 citations)

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

  • Bacteria
  • Gene
  • Enzyme

Colin Hill focuses on Microbiology, Microbiome, Bacteriocin, Antibiotic resistance and Human virome. His Microbiology study incorporates themes from Bacteriophage, Phage therapy, Listeria monocytogenes and Lactobacillus. His study in Listeria monocytogenes is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Single-nucleotide polymorphism and Virulence.

Colin Hill combines subjects such as Gut flora, Immunology, Genome and Firmicutes with his study of Microbiome. His research integrates issues of Food science, Pathogenic bacteria and Biochemistry in his study of Bacteriocin. His Antibiotic resistance research focuses on subjects like Antimicrobial peptides, which are linked to Drug resistance, Lantibiotics, Streptococcus mutans and Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
