Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Bacteria
  • Gene
  • Ecology

Edward F. DeLong mainly focuses on Ecology, Archaea, Ribosomal RNA, Genetics and Phylogenetics. His studies deal with areas such as Proteobacteria, Evolutionary biology and Bacteria as well as Ecology. His Archaea research incorporates themes from Anaerobic oxidation of methane, Anoxic waters and Ribosomal DNA.

His Ribosomal RNA study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Phylogenetic diversity, Oligonucleotide and Molecular biology. His work on Gene, Genome, Metagenomics and Prochlorococcus as part of general Genetics research is often related to Polyketide synthase, thus linking different fields of science. His research integrates issues of 16S ribosomal RNA, Ecology, Evolutionary ecology, Phylogenetic tree and Nucleic acid thermodynamics in his study of Phylogenetics.

His most cited work include:

  • Archaea in coastal marine environments. (2297 citations)
  • The Microbial Engines That Drive Earth's Biogeochemical Cycles (1486 citations)
  • Archaeal dominance in the mesopelagic zone of the Pacific Ocean (1171 citations)

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

Edward F. DeLong focuses on Ecology, Archaea, Genetics, Metagenomics and Bacteria. His Ecology study frequently links to other fields, such as Microbial population biology. Edward F. DeLong has included themes like Range and Anaerobic oxidation of methane in his Archaea study.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Microbial ecology and Computational biology. His Bacteria research incorporates elements of Environmental chemistry and Microbiology. As part of one scientific family, he deals mainly with the area of Plankton, narrowing it down to issues related to the Bacterioplankton, and often Marine bacteriophage.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (48.94%)
  • Archaea (25.70%)
  • Genetics (19.01%)

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

  • Ecology (48.94%)
  • Archaea (25.70%)
  • Plankton (17.25%)

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

Edward F. DeLong mostly deals with Ecology, Archaea, Plankton, Metagenomics and Dissolved organic carbon. His Ecology study combines topics in areas such as Prochlorococcus and Microbial population biology. He studies Euryarchaeota which is a part of Archaea.

The various areas that Edward F. DeLong examines in his Plankton study include Proteobacteria, Thaumarchaeota and Bacterioplankton. His research in Metagenomics intersects with topics in Phylogenetic diversity, Microbial ecology and Genome. His studies in Dissolved organic carbon integrate themes in fields like Microorganism, Bacteria, Nutrient and Botany.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Metagenomic analysis of size-fractionated picoplankton in a marine oxygen minimum zone. (188 citations)
  • Multispecies diel transcriptional oscillations in open ocean heterotrophic bacterial assemblages (162 citations)
  • Multispecies diel transcriptional oscillations in open ocean heterotrophic bacterial assemblages (162 citations)

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

  • Bacteria
  • Gene
  • Ecology

His primary areas of investigation include Ecology, Archaea, Metagenomics, Plankton and Microbial population biology. His study in Ecology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Microbial ecology and Prochlorococcus. Edward F. DeLong has researched Archaea in several fields, including Halorhodopsin, Range, Microbial genetics and Bacterial rhodopsins.

His work is dedicated to discovering how Metagenomics, Genome are connected with Evolutionary biology and Rhodopsin and other disciplines. His Evolutionary biology research focuses on subjects like Gene, which are linked to Bacteria. His study looks at the relationship between Plankton and fields such as Ocean gyre, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems.
