Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Ecology
  • DNA

His scientific interests lie mostly in Genetics, Ecology, Ancient DNA, Genome and Evolutionary biology. His Genetics research focuses on subjects like Computational biology, which are linked to DNA sequencing. His Ecology research incorporates themes from Megafauna and Pleistocene.

Eske Willerslev combines subjects such as Zoology and Paleontology, Mammoth, Paleoecology with his study of Ancient DNA. The study incorporates disciplines such as Adaptation, Phylogenetics and Paleo-Eskimo in addition to Genome. His Evolutionary biology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Biological dispersal, Human migration, Mitochondrial DNA and Haplotype.

His most cited work include:

  • Whole-genome analyses resolve early branches in the tree of life of modern birds (1174 citations)
  • Towards next‐generation biodiversity assessment using DNA metabarcoding (790 citations)
  • Environmental DNA - An emerging tool in conservation for monitoring past and present biodiversity (723 citations)

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

Eske Willerslev focuses on Ancient DNA, Evolutionary biology, Genetics, Ecology and Genome. His Ancient DNA research also works with subjects such as

  • DNA and related Polymerase chain reaction,
  • Zoology which intersects with area such as Domestication. His research investigates the connection with Evolutionary biology and areas like Biological dispersal which intersect with concerns in Ethnology.

Genetics and Computational biology are frequently intertwined in his study. His Ecology research includes elements of Megafauna, Pleistocene and Holocene. Genomics and Human genome are subfields of Genome in which his conducts study.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ancient DNA (63.20%)
  • Evolutionary biology (42.60%)
  • Genetics (22.60%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Ancient DNA (63.20%)
  • Evolutionary biology (42.60%)
  • Holocene (15.60%)

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

Eske Willerslev spends much of his time researching Ancient DNA, Evolutionary biology, Holocene, Ethnology and Bronze Age. He has researched Ancient DNA in several fields, including Zoology, Paleogenetics, Genome, Rock shelter and Metagenomics. His Evolutionary biology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Phylogenetic tree, Human migration, DNA, Genomics and Phylogenetics.

The Holocene study combines topics in areas such as Bedrock, Ecology, Pleistocene and Greenland ice sheet. Eske Willerslev has included themes like Indigenous and Gene flow in his Ethnology study. The concepts of his Bronze Age study are interwoven with issues in Domestication, Steppe, Archaeological evidence and Middle Ages.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • 137 ancient human genomes from across the Eurasian steppes (144 citations)
  • 137 ancient human genomes from across the Eurasian steppes (144 citations)
  • 137 ancient human genomes from across the Eurasian steppes (144 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Ecology
  • DNA

Eske Willerslev mostly deals with Evolutionary biology, Ancient DNA, Bronze Age, Human migration and Steppe. His research integrates issues of Ecology, DNA, Sound, Replication and Dna genetics in his study of Evolutionary biology. His work deals with themes such as Genome, Ethnology, Trichuris trichiura, Ascaris lumbricoides and Phylogenetics, which intersect with Ancient DNA.

The various areas that Eske Willerslev examines in his Bronze Age study include Domestication, Human hepatitis, Archaeological evidence and Middle Ages. His work in Domestication tackles topics such as Zoology which are related to areas like Paleogenetics. His work deals with themes such as Plague, Biological dispersal, Pleistocene and Dynamic population, which intersect with Human migration.
