Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • DNA

His primary areas of study are Microbiology, Gene, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Biochemistry and Molecular biology. He is interested in Autolysin, which is a field of Microbiology. Ernesto García works mostly in the field of Gene, limiting it down to concerns involving Optochin and, occasionally, Mutagenesis and Streptococcus mitis.

His research on Streptococcus pneumoniae focuses in particular on Pneumococcal infections. As part of one scientific family, he deals mainly with the area of Biochemistry, narrowing it down to issues related to the Streptococcus pyogenes, and often Complement component 7, Factor H, Complement component C4b binding, A-site and Complement component 2. His research in Molecular biology intersects with topics in Bacteriophage, Escherichia coli, Plasmid and Open reading frame.

His most cited work include:

  • Biofilm Formation by Streptococcus pneumoniae: Role of Choline, Extracellular DNA, and Capsular Polysaccharide in Microbial Accretion (263 citations)
  • Sequence and transcriptional analysis of a DNA region involved in the production of capsular polysaccharide in Streptococcus pneumoniae type 3. (182 citations)
  • Modular organization of the lytic enzymes of Streptococcus pneumoniae and its bacteriophages. (166 citations)

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

Ernesto García focuses on Microbiology, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Gene, Biochemistry and Autolysin. His Microbiology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Lysin, Lytic cycle, Virology and Biofilm. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Molecular biology, Serotype and Mutant.

The concepts of his Molecular biology study are interwoven with issues in Bacteriophage, Escherichia coli, Molecular cloning and DNA. His study looks at the relationship between Autolysin and fields such as N-acetylmuramoyl-L-alanine amidase, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems. His Pneumococcal infections study combines topics in areas such as Immunology, Polymerase chain reaction and Virulence.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Microbiology (71.51%)
  • Streptococcus pneumoniae (67.60%)
  • Gene (24.58%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2011-2021)?

  • Microbiology (71.51%)
  • Streptococcus pneumoniae (67.60%)
  • Biofilm (13.97%)

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

Ernesto García spends much of his time researching Microbiology, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Biofilm, Virology and Serotype. His Microbiology research includes themes of Prophage and Staphylococcus aureus. His Streptococcus pneumoniae research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Immune system and Polysaccharide.

His work carried out in the field of Biofilm brings together such families of science as Extracellular matrix, In vitro, DNA and Lytic cycle. In his study, Oligopeptide, Catabolism and Amino acid is strongly linked to Gene, which falls under the umbrella field of Lytic cycle. The Serotype study combines topics in areas such as Genotype, Clone and Polymerase chain reaction.

Between 2011 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Biofilm formation avoids complement immunity and phagocytosis of Streptococcus pneumoniae (90 citations)
  • Improving the Lethal Effect of Cpl-7, a Pneumococcal Phage Lysozyme with Broad Bactericidal Activity, by Inverting the Net Charge of Its Cell Wall-Binding Module (57 citations)
  • Biofilm formation in Streptococcus pneumoniae (50 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • DNA

Ernesto García mainly focuses on Microbiology, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Biofilm, Bacteria and Extracellular matrix. Specifically, his work in Microbiology is concerned with the study of Autolysin. His study of Pneumococcal infections is a part of Streptococcus pneumoniae.

His Biofilm research integrates issues from Lysozyme, Haemophilus influenzae and Glycoside hydrolase. He has included themes like Extracellular polymeric substance, DNA, Peptide and Protein moonlighting in his Extracellular matrix study. The various areas that he examines in his Lysin study include Lysis and Pneumonia.
