Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • DNA
  • Gene
  • Enzyme

Genetics, Capsid, Molecular biology, Virus and Bacteriophage are his primary areas of study. His work deals with themes such as Protein structure, Crystallography, Biophysics and Viral replication, which intersect with Capsid. His Molecular biology research integrates issues from Polymerase, DNA, Complementation, Mutant and Lytic cycle.

His studies in Virus integrate themes in fields like Host and Lineage. His study in Bacteriophage is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Icosahedral symmetry and Viral membrane. His research investigates the connection between RNA and topics such as Cell biology that intersect with issues in Membrane protein.

His most cited work include:

  • A Mechanism for Initiating RNA-Dependent RNA Polymerization (418 citations)
  • What does structure tell us about virus evolution (316 citations)
  • Viral Evolution Revealed by Bacteriophage PRD1 and Human Adenovirus Coat Protein Structures (276 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Molecular biology, Bacteriophage, RNA, Virus and Capsid. His research on Molecular biology also deals with topics like

  • Membrane most often made with reference to Biophysics,
  • Cell biology, which have a strong connection to Membrane protein. Dennis H. Bamford works mostly in the field of Bacteriophage, limiting it down to topics relating to Microbiology and, in certain cases, Bacteria.

His work in RNA is not limited to one particular discipline; it also encompasses Polymerase. His Virus study combines topics in areas such as Bacterial virus and Genome, Archaeal Viruses. His Capsid study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Crystallography and Protein structure.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Molecular biology (28.05%)
  • Bacteriophage (25.12%)
  • RNA (23.17%)

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

  • Virus (21.71%)
  • Archaeal Viruses (10.24%)
  • Virology (17.32%)

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

Dennis H. Bamford mainly investigates Virus, Archaeal Viruses, Virology, Capsid and Genome. The study incorporates disciplines such as RNA silencing, DNA and Microbiology in addition to Virus. His study on RNA silencing is covered under RNA.

His RNA research incorporates elements of Bacteriophage and Virulence. The concepts of his Capsid study are interwoven with issues in Electron microscope, Lineage, Biophysics and Molecular biology. His studies deal with areas such as Evolutionary biology, Microbiome and Membrane protein as well as Genome.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The enigmatic archaeal virosphere. (83 citations)
  • Archaeal viruses and bacteriophages: comparisons and contrasts (67 citations)
  • Conservation of major and minor jelly-roll capsid proteins in Polinton (Maverick) transposons suggests that they are bona fide viruses (63 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Enzyme

His primary areas of study are Archaeal Viruses, Archaea, Virus, Capsid and Genome. Archaeal Viruses is a subfield of Genetics that Dennis H. Bamford investigates. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Virus classification, Halophile, Microbiology and Extreme environment.

Dennis H. Bamford has included themes like RNA and RNA interference in his Virus study. Dennis H. Bamford specializes in RNA, namely RNA polymerase. His Capsid research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Biophysics, Host and Inner membrane.
