Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Genome

Eugene V. Koonin focuses on Genetics, Genome, Gene, Computational biology and Conserved sequence. His study in RNA, CRISPR, Phylogenetics, Horizontal gene transfer and Peptide sequence are all subfields of Genetics. Eugene V. Koonin has included themes like Evolutionary biology, Protein family and Phylogenetic tree in his Genome study.

His research integrates issues of Last universal ancestor and Horizontal gene transfer in evolution in his study of Evolutionary biology. His Computational biology research integrates issues from Cas9 and Guide RNA. His Conserved sequence research also works with subjects such as

  • Sequence alignment together with Protein structure,
  • Helicase which intersects with area such as DNA.

His most cited work include:

  • Initial sequencing and analysis of the human genome. (18816 citations)
  • The COG database: an updated version includes eukaryotes (3446 citations)
  • A GENOMIC PERSPECTIVE ON PROTEIN FAMILIES (3017 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Genetics, Genome, Gene, Computational biology and Evolutionary biology. Conserved sequence, Phylogenetics, RNA, Horizontal gene transfer and Phylogenetic tree are subfields of Genetics in which his conducts study. Many of his studies on Genome apply to Archaea as well.

Many of his studies involve connections with topics such as Virus and Gene. Computational biology connects with themes related to CRISPR in his study. The concepts of his CRISPR study are interwoven with issues in Mobile genetic elements and Effector.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (55.60%)
  • Genome (36.01%)
  • Gene (33.30%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Genome (36.01%)
  • Genetics (55.60%)
  • Gene (33.30%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Genome, Genetics, Gene, Computational biology and Evolutionary biology. His research in Genome intersects with topics in Archaea, Phylogenetic tree and Metagenomics. His work on Virus expands to the thematically related Gene.

His Computational biology research incorporates elements of Acquired immune system and CRISPR. His work in CRISPR addresses subjects such as RNA, which are connected to disciplines such as Transcription. Eugene V. Koonin interconnects Epistasis, Viral evolution, Effective population size and Selection in the investigation of issues within Evolutionary biology.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • C2c2 is a single-component programmable RNA-guided RNA-targeting CRISPR effector (859 citations)
  • Nucleic acid detection with CRISPR-Cas13a/C2c2 (790 citations)
  • Diversity, classification and evolution of CRISPR-Cas systems (577 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Genome

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Genome, Genetics, Computational biology, CRISPR and Gene. His Genome study incorporates themes from Evolutionary biology and Metagenomics. In his research, Microbiology is intimately related to Archaea, which falls under the overarching field of Evolutionary biology.

His works in RNA, Horizontal gene transfer, Plasmid, Phylogenetic tree and Phylogenetics are all subjects of inquiry into Genetics. His Computational biology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Acquired immune system, Transposase, RNA editing, Comparative genomics and Cas9. His studies in CRISPR integrate themes in fields like Effector, DNA, Transposable element and Mobile genetic elements.
