Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • DNA

Detlef Weigel focuses on Genetics, Arabidopsis, Gene, Arabidopsis thaliana and Genome. His Genetics study frequently draws connections between related disciplines such as Leafy. In his research, Gene flow is intimately related to Phenotype, which falls under the overarching field of Arabidopsis.

His Gene study frequently links to other fields, such as photoperiodism. Cell biology is closely connected to Botany in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Arabidopsis thaliana. His Genome research includes elements of Sequence analysis, DNA methylation and Sequence assembly.

His most cited work include:

  • Genome-Wide Insertional Mutagenesis of Arabidopsis thaliana (4526 citations)
  • A gene expression map of Arabidopsis thaliana development (2161 citations)
  • A gene expression map of Arabidopsis thaliana development (2161 citations)

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

Detlef Weigel mostly deals with Genetics, Arabidopsis, Gene, Arabidopsis thaliana and Genome. His Allele, Locus, Regulation of gene expression, Phenotype and Transcription factor investigations are all subjects of Genetics research. Detlef Weigel combines subjects such as Leafy, Botany, Meristem and Cell biology with his study of Arabidopsis.

His study in Gene concentrates on Gene family, Transcription, Quantitative trait locus, Gene expression and microRNA. His Genome study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Evolutionary biology, Computational biology and DNA sequencing. His Evolutionary biology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Adaptation, Natural selection and Genetic variation.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (66.78%)
  • Arabidopsis (43.88%)
  • Gene (36.36%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Genetics (66.78%)
  • Arabidopsis thaliana (26.92%)
  • Evolutionary biology (13.11%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Genetics, Arabidopsis thaliana, Evolutionary biology, Genome and Gene. Allele, Arabidopsis, DNA methylation, DNA sequencing and Single-nucleotide polymorphism are among the areas of Genetics where the researcher is concentrating his efforts. Arabidopsis is a subfield of Mutant that Detlef Weigel explores.

Detlef Weigel interconnects Pathogen, Intraspecific competition, Botany, Phenotype and Lineage in the investigation of issues within Arabidopsis thaliana. His studies deal with areas such as Allometry, Balancing selection, Genetic variation, Natural selection and Adaptation as well as Evolutionary biology. His work deals with themes such as Clade, Computational biology and CRISPR, which intersect with Genome.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • 1,135 Genomes Reveal the Global Pattern of Polymorphism in Arabidopsis thaliana (616 citations)
  • Microbial Hub Taxa Link Host and Abiotic Factors to Plant Microbiome Variation. (465 citations)
  • Epigenomic Diversity in a Global Collection of Arabidopsis thaliana Accessions (328 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Genetics

His main research concerns Genetics, Genome, Arabidopsis thaliana, Evolutionary biology and Arabidopsis. His study in Gene, DNA methylation, Epigenetics, Chromatin and Epigenomics falls within the category of Genetics. His studies in Genome integrate themes in fields like Computational biology, DNA sequencing and Sequence assembly.

The Arabidopsis thaliana study combines topics in areas such as Structural variation, Lineage and Botany. The various areas that he examines in his Evolutionary biology study include Balancing selection, Genetic variation, Natural selection, Population bottleneck and Adaptation. His Arabidopsis study combines topics in areas such as Innate immune system, Polymerase, Nuclease and Cell biology.
