Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • Internal medicine

Egbert F. Knol spends much of his time researching Litter, Birth weight, Weaning, Animal science and Heritability. His Litter research includes elements of Parity and Sire. His Birth weight study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Endocrinology and Small intestine.

His work carried out in the field of Weaning brings together such families of science as Survival rate, Nursing and Genetics. His research in Animal science intersects with topics in Lactation and Gestation. He has researched Heritability in several fields, including Kin selection, Group selection, Genetic correlation and Statistics.

His most cited work include:

  • Estimates of genetic parameters for reproduction traits at different parities in Dutch Landrace pigs (164 citations)
  • The contribution of social effects to heritable variation in finishing traits of domestic pigs (Sus scrofa). (143 citations)
  • Genetic aspects of piglet survival (123 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Animal science, Genetics, Litter, Quantitative trait locus and Genetic variation. His Animal science study incorporates themes from Birth weight, Genetic correlation and Lactation. His work in Birth weight addresses subjects such as Gestation, which are connected to disciplines such as Fetus.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Ovulation, Parity, Purebred, Reproduction and Insemination. While the research belongs to areas of Reproduction, Egbert F. Knol spends his time largely on the problem of Veterinary medicine, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Heritability and Loin. His Quantitative trait locus study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Allele and Genetic association.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Animal science (32.21%)
  • Genetics (28.86%)
  • Litter (18.12%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Animal science (32.21%)
  • Litter (18.12%)
  • Crossbreed (12.75%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Animal science, Litter, Crossbreed, Genetic variation and Heritability. The various areas that Egbert F. Knol examines in his Animal science study include Ovulation, Pregnancy, Feces, Semen and Repeatability. His Litter research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Birth weight, Nutrient and Weaning.

Egbert F. Knol interconnects Genetic correlation and Sire in the investigation of issues within Crossbreed. His Genetic variation research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Veterinary medicine, Genetic analysis and Animal welfare. The concepts of his Heritability study are interwoven with issues in Statistics, Disease, Parity and Random effects model.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Fecal microbial composition associated with variation in feed efficiency in pigs depends on diet and sex (23 citations)
  • Weighted single-step GWAS and gene network analysis reveal new candidate genes for semen traits in pigs. (19 citations)
  • Using markers with large effect in genetic and genomic predictions. (18 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • Internal medicine

Egbert F. Knol mainly investigates Animal science, Genetic variation, Litter, Quantitative trait locus and Genetic correlation. His studies in Animal science integrate themes in fields like Ovulation, Pregnancy, Follicular phase and Semen. His Genetic variation research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Genetic analysis, Single-nucleotide polymorphism, Animal welfare and Candidate gene.

His Litter study which covers Birth weight that intersects with Weaning, Follicle, Lactation and Reproduction. His Quantitative trait locus research incorporates themes from Statistics, Best linear unbiased prediction and Genetic association. Egbert F. Knol has included themes like Crossbreed, Animal breeding and Sire in his Genetic correlation study.
