His scientific interests lie mostly in Sexual differentiation, Endocrinology, Sea bass, Dicentrarchus and Genetics. His Sexual differentiation study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Zoology, Transcription factor, Aquaculture, Sex ratio and Sex reversal. His research in Endocrinology focuses on subjects like Oncorhynchus, which are connected to Androgen, Physiology, Hatching, Single administration and Ontogeny.
His Sea bass research includes themes of Mediterranean climate, Larva and Broodstock. His Dicentrarchus research includes elements of Juvenile, Fishery, Gamete and Ovary. In his research on the topic of Genetics, Sexual maturity, Genetic linkage, Evolutionary biology, Chromosome and Quantitative trait locus is strongly related with Sexual dimorphism.
His primary areas of study are Sea bass, Sexual differentiation, Genetics, Dicentrarchus and Endocrinology. Francesc Piferrer combines subjects such as Zoology, DNA methylation, Transcriptome, Fishery and Epigenetics with his study of Sea bass. His work in Fishery addresses issues such as Aquaculture, which are connected to fields such as Genomics.
His work in Sexual differentiation tackles topics such as Sex ratio which are related to areas like Development of the gonads and Anatomy. The various areas that Francesc Piferrer examines in his Genetics study include Turbot, Scophthalmus and Flatfish. The Dicentrarchus study combines topics in areas such as Serranidae and Animal science.
His primary areas of investigation include Epigenetics, Sea bass, Evolutionary biology, DNA methylation and Gene. Francesc Piferrer interconnects Zoology, Phenotypic Sex, Aquaculture, Fishery and Dicentrarchus in the investigation of issues within Sea bass. His research integrates issues of Sex related, Danio, Development of the gonads and Histone in his study of DNA methylation.
Gene is a subfield of Genetics that Francesc Piferrer studies. His Transcriptome, Genomics, Sexual differentiation, Gene expression and Zebrafish investigations are all subjects of Genetics research. His study looks at the intersection of Epigenome and topics like Physiology with Sex ratio.
Francesc Piferrer focuses on Epigenetics, DNA methylation, Gene, Genetics and Sea bass. His Epigenetics study incorporates themes from Evolutionary biology and Bisulfite sequencing. His research in Gene intersects with topics in Environmental sex determination and Gonad.
His Environmental sex determination research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Heat shock protein, Gene family, KEGG, Fishery and Sexual differentiation. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Period, Sex ratio, Sex reversal, Physiology and Epigenome. The study incorporates disciplines such as Steroid biosynthesis, Transcription factor and Sexual dimorphism in addition to Gene expression.
