Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Gene
  • Genome

David Edwards mainly investigates Genetics, Genome, Biodiversity, Agroforestry and Gene. His research brings together the fields of Genetic diversity and Genetics. He has included themes like Domestication, Computational biology and Sequence assembly in his Genome study.

Biodiversity is the subject of his research, which falls under Ecology. His studies in Agroforestry integrate themes in fields like Land use, Species richness, Logging, Ecosystem and Rainforest. In his study, Epigenetics is strongly linked to Brassica, which falls under the umbrella field of Gene.

His most cited work include:

  • The genome of the mesopolyploid crop species Brassica rapa (1409 citations)
  • The genome of the mesopolyploid crop species Brassica rapa (1409 citations)
  • Early allopolyploid evolution in the post-Neolithic Brassica napus oilseed genome (1119 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Genetics, Genome, Ecology, Biodiversity and Agroforestry. Genetics is closely attributed to Brassica in his research. He combines subjects such as Biotechnology, Computational biology and DNA sequencing with his study of Genome.

His study involves Ecosystem, Rainforest, Abundance and Mutualism, a branch of Ecology. His Biodiversity research includes elements of Threatened species, Habitat, Deforestation, Tropics and Species richness. In his work, Disturbance is strongly intertwined with Logging, which is a subfield of Agroforestry.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (27.98%)
  • Genome (26.37%)
  • Ecology (22.89%)

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

  • Genome (26.37%)
  • Biodiversity (21.02%)
  • Gene (15.26%)

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

David Edwards mainly focuses on Genome, Biodiversity, Gene, Agroforestry and Genetics. As a member of one scientific family, David Edwards mostly works in the field of Genome, focusing on Evolutionary biology and, on occasion, Domestication. His Biodiversity study is concerned with Ecology in general.

His Gene study which covers Computational biology that intersects with DNA sequencing. The various areas that David Edwards examines in his Agroforestry study include Agriculture, Climate change, Logging and Ecosystem services. His Genetics research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Brassica and Blackleg.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Shifting the limits in wheat research and breeding using a fully annotated reference genome (1066 citations)
  • Shifting the limits in wheat research and breeding using a fully annotated reference genome (1066 citations)
  • Speed breeding is a powerful tool to accelerate crop research and breeding (266 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Gene
  • Genome

David Edwards spends much of his time researching Genome, Gene, Biodiversity, Agroforestry and Genetics. His Genome research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Evolutionary biology and Plant breeding. Quantitative trait locus and Transposable element are the core of his Gene study.

His Biodiversity research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Range, Habitat, Taxon, Deforestation and Species richness. David Edwards interconnects Forest transition, Typology, Ordination and Resilience in the investigation of issues within Agroforestry. His research in Plant disease resistance and Single-nucleotide polymorphism are components of Genetics.
