Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Bacteria
  • Genome

David A. Relman mainly investigates Microbiology, Genetics, Metagenomics, Microbiome and Ribosomal RNA. His Microbiology research includes elements of Bordetella pertussis, Bacteria, Virology and Virulence. His research in Metagenomics intersects with topics in Ecology, Genome, Human microbiome, Computational biology and DNA sequencing.

His work carried out in the field of Microbiome brings together such families of science as Zoology, Human biology, Bifidobacterium, Bacterial taxonomy and Actinomyces. His studies in Ribosomal RNA integrate themes in fields like 16S ribosomal RNA, Microbial population biology, Enterotype, Hypervariable region and Microarray. His study in Human Microbiome Project is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Intestinal mucosa, Faecalibacterium prausnitzii, Flora, Butyrate-Producing Bacteria and Innate immune system.

His most cited work include:

  • Diversity of the human intestinal microbial flora. (5295 citations)
  • Diversity of the human intestinal microbial flora. (5295 citations)
  • Diversity of the human intestinal microbial flora. (5295 citations)

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

David A. Relman spends much of his time researching Microbiology, Genetics, Immunology, Microbiome and Metagenomics. His Microbiology research incorporates elements of Virology, Bordetella pertussis, Bacteria, Polymerase chain reaction and Virulence. His Genetics research focuses on Gene, Ribosomal RNA, Genome, Phylogenetics and Genetic variation.

He has included themes like 16S ribosomal RNA and Ribosomal DNA in his Ribosomal RNA study. His research integrates issues of Zoology, Gut flora, Feces and Disease in his study of Microbiome. His studies deal with areas such as Ecology, Human microbiome, Genomics, Computational biology and DNA sequencing as well as Metagenomics.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Microbiology (38.34%)
  • Genetics (30.04%)
  • Immunology (23.77%)

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

  • Microbiome (23.99%)
  • Metagenomics (20.18%)
  • Immunology (23.77%)

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

David A. Relman mostly deals with Microbiome, Metagenomics, Immunology, Genome and Gut flora. The study incorporates disciplines such as Feces, Disease, Immune system and Microbial ecology in addition to Microbiome. The concepts of his Metagenomics study are interwoven with issues in Human gut, Amplicon, Computational biology and DNA sequencing.

His Amplicon research is included under the broader classification of Genetics. His Genome study combines topics in areas such as Evolutionary biology and Lactobacillus iners. As a member of one scientific family, David A. Relman mostly works in the field of Lactobacillus iners, focusing on Genome size and, on occasion, Microbiology.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Simple statistical identification and removal of contaminant sequences in marker-gene and metagenomics data. (400 citations)
  • Simple statistical identification and removal of contaminant sequences in marker-gene and metagenomics data. (400 citations)
  • Enterotypes in the landscape of gut microbial community composition (313 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Bacteria
  • Genome

His primary areas of study are Microbiome, Metagenomics, Human gut, Genome and Immune system. His Microbiome research integrates issues from Zoology, Pregnancy, Microbial ecology, Vaccine efficacy and Drug resistance. His work on Enterotype is typically connected to Human health, Environmental ethics and Geography as part of general Human gut study, connecting several disciplines of science.

In Genome, David A. Relman works on issues like Evolutionary biology, which are connected to Phylogenetics, Gene and Transfer RNA. His Immune system research includes themes of Antimicrobial, Human microbiome and Antibiotic resistance. Amplicon is the subject of his research, which falls under Genetics.
