Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Enzyme
  • Botany
  • Biochemistry

His primary areas of study are Botany, Tissue culture, Kinetin, Cell division and Pith. In his papers, Folke Skoog integrates diverse fields, such as Botany and Chlorococcales. His studies deal with areas such as Phenols and Food science as well as Tissue culture.

Folke Skoog works mostly in the field of Kinetin, limiting it down to topics relating to Isolation and, in certain cases, Biochemistry. His research investigates the connection between Cell division and topics such as Cell biology that intersect with issues in Chemical control, Vicia faba and Main stem. His Pith study combines topics in areas such as Nutrient agar, Callus, Erlenmeyer flask and Sucrose.

His most cited work include:

  • A revised medium for rapid growth and bio assays with tobacco tissue cultures (55023 citations)
  • Organic Growth Factor Requirements of Tobacco Tissue Cultures (3212 citations)
  • KINETIN, A CELL DIVISION FACTOR FROM DEOXYRIBONUCLEIC ACID1 (534 citations)

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

Folke Skoog mostly deals with Biochemistry, Cytokinin, Botany, Stereochemistry and Callus. His work on Pisum and Sephadex as part of general Biochemistry study is frequently linked to Transfer RNA and Ribosomal RNA, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science. His work on Zeatin as part of general Cytokinin study is frequently linked to Bioassay, Purine metabolism, Chromatography and Escherichia coli, bridging the gap between disciplines.

Folke Skoog focuses mostly in the field of Botany, narrowing it down to matters related to Tissue culture and, in some cases, Horticulture. His Stereochemistry research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Biological activity and Purine. He studied Pith and Cell division that intersect with Cell biology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Biochemistry (38.16%)
  • Cytokinin (30.26%)
  • Botany (26.32%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 1969-2019)?

  • Cytokinin (30.26%)
  • Stereochemistry (23.68%)
  • Biochemistry (38.16%)

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

Folke Skoog spends much of his time researching Cytokinin, Stereochemistry, Biochemistry, Callus and Transfer RNA. His work on Zeatin as part of general Cytokinin study is frequently connected to Bioassay, Purine, Kinetin and Shoot, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them. His study in Stereochemistry is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Biological activity and Adenosine.

The Sephadex, Pyrimidine and Amino acid research Folke Skoog does as part of his general Biochemistry study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as Ribosomal RNA, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science. His Gibberellin research is classified as research in Botany. His Botany study frequently draws connections between adjacent fields such as Pesticide.

Between 1969 and 2019, his most popular works were:

  • Cytokinins: synthesis and biological activity of geometric and position isomers of zeatin. (77 citations)
  • CHAPTER FIVE – The Natural Plant Hormones (60 citations)
  • Relationships between cytokinin production, presence of plasmids, and fasciation caused by strains of Corynebacterium fascians. (59 citations)

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

  • Enzyme
  • Botany
  • Biochemistry

His primary scientific interests are in Cytokinin, Stereochemistry, Biochemistry, Bioassay and Zeatin. His research investigates the connection between Stereochemistry and topics such as Biological activity that intersect with problems in Ring. His Biochemistry research includes elements of Isolation and Callus.

His Bioassay course of study focuses on Purine metabolism and Adenosine, Wheat germ, Cell division and Mass spectrum. His research on Gibberellin concerns the broader Botany. His studies in Botany integrate themes in fields like DNA and DNA synthesis.
