Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • Genome

Evan E. Eichler mostly deals with Genetics, Genome, Human genome, Copy-number variation and Gene. He regularly links together related areas like Evolutionary biology in his Genetics studies. He has included themes like Computational biology and DNA sequencing in his Genome study.

His Human genome research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Structural variation, Copy number analysis and Linkage disequilibrium. His Copy-number variation study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Autism, Genotype, Genetic heterogeneity, Comparative genomic hybridization and Genetic variation. His work deals with themes such as Genetic association and Candidate gene, which intersect with Exome sequencing.

His most cited work include:

  • Initial sequencing and analysis of the human genome. (18816 citations)
  • A global reference for human genetic variation. (7825 citations)
  • Finding the missing heritability of complex diseases. (6217 citations)

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

Evan E. Eichler focuses on Genetics, Genome, Human genome, Gene and Segmental duplication. His research links Autism with Genetics. His Genome study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Evolutionary biology, Computational biology and DNA sequencing.

His Computational biology research includes elements of Hybrid genome assembly, Contig, Nanopore sequencing, Sequence assembly and Haplotype. His study in Human genome is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Sequence, Sequence analysis and Euchromatin. His Copy-number variation research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Comparative genomic hybridization and Genetic variation.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (93.41%)
  • Genome (48.02%)
  • Human genome (33.97%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2019-2021)?

  • Computational biology (24.74%)
  • Genome (48.02%)
  • Gene (29.72%)

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

Computational biology, Genome, Gene, Human genome and Autism spectrum disorder are his primary areas of study. His study looks at the intersection of Computational biology and topics like Haplotype with Genotyping, Ploidy and Genetic variation. In Genome, Evan E. Eichler works on issues like Evolutionary biology, which are connected to Centromere, Gene duplication, Variable number tandem repeat, Macaque and Genome evolution.

His Gene research entails a greater understanding of Genetics. He has researched Human genome in several fields, including Structural variation, Human genetics and Genomics. His work carried out in the field of Autism spectrum disorder brings together such families of science as Neurodevelopmental disorder, Genetic heterogeneity, Cognition and Intellectual disability.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Telomere-to-telomere assembly of a complete human X chromosome. (126 citations)
  • Nanopore sequencing and the Shasta toolkit enable efficient de novo assembly of eleven human genomes. (72 citations)
  • Nanopore sequencing and the Shasta toolkit enable efficient de novo assembly of eleven human genomes. (72 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Mutation

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Computational biology, Genome, Human genome, Sequence assembly and Nanopore sequencing. His research in Computational biology intersects with topics in Phenotype, Structural variation, Contig and Haplotype. His work on Segmental duplication, Genomics, Tandem repeat and Reference genome as part of general Genome research is frequently linked to Extramural, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science.

His Genomics research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Sequence analysis, Missing heritability problem, DNA sequencing and Phred quality score. Within one scientific family, he focuses on topics pertaining to Evolutionary biology under Reference genome, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Intron, Gene duplication and Trinucleotide repeat expansion. His studies deal with areas such as Comparative genomic hybridization, Disease, Genome-wide association study and SNP array as well as Human genome.
