2022 - Research.com Biology and Biochemistry in South Africa Leader Award
Fellow of the Royal Society of South Africa
His primary scientific interests are in Ecology, Microbial ecology, Biochemistry, Thermophile and Botany. Don A. Cowan has included themes like Microbial population biology and Hypolith in his Ecology study. His Microbial ecology research incorporates themes from Edaphic, Desertification, Microbial biodiversity, Genetic diversity and Metagenomics.
His work on Enzyme, Membrane, Small molecule and RNA Stability as part of general Biochemistry study is frequently connected to Instability, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them. His Thermophile research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Proteases, Ribosomal RNA, Industrial enzymes, Physical stability and Gene deletion. His Botany study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Biodiversity, Species diversity, Soil microbiology and Actinobacteria.
Don A. Cowan mainly investigates Ecology, Biochemistry, Botany, Thermophile and Metagenomics. His studies in Ecology integrate themes in fields like Microbial ecology and Hypolith. His Botany research incorporates elements of 16S ribosomal RNA, Actinobacteria and Bacteria.
His work deals with themes such as Ribosomal RNA, Halophile, Microbiology and Phylogenetic tree, which intersect with 16S ribosomal RNA. His Thermophile study contributes to a more complete understanding of Genetics. His work deals with themes such as Arid and Microbial population biology, which intersect with Soil water.
The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Ecology, Metagenomics, Ecosystem, Soil water and Botany. His Ecology research incorporates elements of Microbial ecology and Microbial population biology. In his study, Agriculture is strongly linked to Actinobacteria, which falls under the umbrella field of Microbial population biology.
His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Microbiome, Evolutionary biology, Microorganism, Mobile genetic elements and Computational biology. His Ecosystem study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Phototroph, Range, Community structure and Habitat. His Soil water research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Arid and Photosynthesis.
Don A. Cowan spends much of his time researching Ecology, Ecosystem, Biodiversity, Microbial ecology and Soil water. His study in Ecology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Botany and Microbial population biology. His Ecosystem research integrates issues from Trophic level, Heterotroph, Desertification and Microorganism.
His Biodiversity research includes themes of Plateau, Phylogenetics, Terrestrial ecosystem and Rare biosphere. Don A. Cowan has included themes like Metagenomics, Ecology and Phylogenetic tree in his Microbial ecology study. He combines subjects such as Arid and Taxonomic rank with his study of Soil water.
