His primary scientific interests are in RNA, Molecular biology, Poliovirus, Virology and Genetics. His research in RNA intersects with topics in Ribosomal RNA, Messenger RNA, Eukaryotic translation and Protein biosynthesis. His work carried out in the field of Molecular biology brings together such families of science as Biochemistry, Peptide sequence, RNA polymerase, RNase P and Oligonucleotide.
Eckard Wimmer interconnects Complementary DNA, Plasmid, Capsid and Coding region in the investigation of issues within Poliovirus. The study incorporates disciplines such as Epitope and Phenotype in addition to Virology. His study explores the link between Genetics and topics such as Plasma protein binding that cross with problems in Viral genetics and Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Virology, Poliovirus, Molecular biology, RNA and Virus. His Virology study incorporates themes from Epitope, Attenuated vaccine and Genome. His work investigates the relationship between Poliovirus and topics such as Capsid that intersect with problems in Recombinant DNA.
The concepts of his Molecular biology study are interwoven with issues in Peptide sequence, Biochemistry, Mutant and RNA polymerase. His RNA study is concerned with the field of Genetics as a whole. His Virus research integrates issues from Complementary DNA, Receptor and RNA virus.
His primary areas of investigation include Virology, Virus, Genetics, Poliovirus and Genome. His research integrates issues of Attenuated vaccine, Internal ribosome entry site, Codon usage bias and Immune system in his study of Virology. His study in the field of RNA, RNA virus, Gene and Synthetic biology is also linked to topics like Communication.
His RNA research includes themes of Infectivity and Capsid. Eckard Wimmer has included themes like Molecular biology, Genetically modified mouse, Poliomyelitis and Microbiology in his Poliovirus study. Eckard Wimmer studies Molecular biology, focusing on Protein biosynthesis in particular.
Eckard Wimmer mostly deals with Virology, Genetics, Virus, RNA and Genome. His research in Virology intersects with topics in Attenuated vaccine and Phylum. His Virus study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Antigen, Recombinant DNA and Microbiology.
The various areas that he examines in his RNA study include Viral entry, Capsid and Viral quasispecies. In his research, Molecular biology is intimately related to ATPase, which falls under the overarching field of Capsid. His work in Viral replication tackles topics such as Poliovirus which are related to areas like Viral evolution and Whole genome sequencing.
