Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Statistics
  • Genetics

Eran Halperin mostly deals with Genome-wide association study, Genetics, Genetic association, Single-nucleotide polymorphism and Bioinformatics. His studies deal with areas such as Coronary artery disease, Internal medicine, Case-control study, Allele and Locus as well as Genome-wide association study. His Genetics study frequently draws connections between related disciplines such as Genetic diversity.

His Genetic association research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Computational biology and Chronic lymphocytic leukemia. His Single-nucleotide polymorphism research includes elements of Evolutionary biology and Selection. His Genetic variation study deals with Genetic variability intersecting with 1000 Genomes Project, Exome sequencing and Human genetic variation.

His most cited work include:

  • A global reference for human genetic variation. (7825 citations)
  • A global reference for human genetic variation. (7825 citations)
  • Large-scale association analysis identifies 13 new susceptibility loci for coronary artery disease (1452 citations)

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

Eran Halperin mainly investigates Genetics, Computational biology, Genome-wide association study, Single-nucleotide polymorphism and Genetic association. Eran Halperin works mostly in the field of Genetics, limiting it down to topics relating to Inference and, in certain cases, Evolutionary biology and Hidden Markov model, as a part of the same area of interest. While the research belongs to areas of Computational biology, Eran Halperin spends his time largely on the problem of DNA methylation, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Methylation.

In his study, Myocardial infarction is strongly linked to Coronary artery disease, which falls under the umbrella field of Genome-wide association study. His studies in Genetic association integrate themes in fields like Imputation, SNP and Bioinformatics. His research in Genetic variation intersects with topics in Genetic variability and Selection.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (42.29%)
  • Computational biology (27.27%)
  • Genome-wide association study (28.06%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Microbiome (4.74%)
  • Computational biology (27.27%)
  • Data mining (6.72%)

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

His primary areas of study are Microbiome, Computational biology, Data mining, Evolutionary biology and Internal medicine. Eran Halperin integrates many fields in his works, including Computational biology and Context. His Data mining study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Matching, Minimum weight, Biobank and Genome-wide association study.

His research integrates issues of Missense mutation, Genetic association and Robustness in his study of Biobank. Eran Halperin has included themes like Genetic variation, Population stratification, Selection, Probabilistic logic and Principal component analysis in his Robustness study. His Evolutionary biology study incorporates themes from Gene transfer and Horizontal gene transfer, Plasmidome.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • FEAST: fast expectation-maximization for microbial source tracking. (50 citations)
  • A heritable subset of the core rumen microbiome dictates dairy cow productivity and emissions (47 citations)
  • Cell-type-specific resolution epigenetics without the need for cell sorting or single-cell biology (29 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Statistics
  • Genetics

Eran Halperin spends much of his time researching Microbiome, Data mining, Rumen microorganisms, Biological system and Cell type. The study incorporates disciplines such as Evolutionary biology, Ecosystem and Community composition in addition to Microbiome. Eran Halperin undertakes interdisciplinary study in the fields of Evolutionary biology and Amplicon sequencing through his research.

His Data mining research incorporates elements of Sample, Gastrointestinal Microbiome and Expectation–maximization algorithm. His Biological system research incorporates themes from Rare cell, Cell and Regression. His study in Cell type is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both RNA, In vitro and Gene expression.
