Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Bacteria
  • Gene
  • DNA

His primary scientific interests are in Ecology, Archaea, Halophile, Botany and Genome. He has included themes like Deep sea, 16S ribosomal RNA and Ribosomal DNA in his Ecology study. Francisco Rodriguez-Valera has researched Halophile in several fields, including Microbial ecology and Microbiology.

His Botany research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Salinity, Temperature gradient gel electrophoresis, Microorganism, Haloarcula and Nutrient. His Genome research incorporates elements of Haloferax mediterranei and Metagenomics. His work on Fosmid as part of general Metagenomics study is frequently connected to Biological classification, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them.

His most cited work include:

  • Unexpected diversity of small eukaryotes in deep-sea Antarctic plankton. (736 citations)
  • Explaining microbial population genomics through phage predation. (464 citations)
  • Numerical Taxonomy of Moderately Halophilic Gram-negative Rods (445 citations)

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

Francisco Rodriguez-Valera mainly focuses on Genome, Metagenomics, Genetics, Ecology and Gene. His research in Genome intersects with topics in Evolutionary biology, Phylogenetics, Computational biology and Sequence analysis. His Metagenomics research incorporates themes from Marine bacteriophage, Prochlorococcus and GC-content.

His Ecology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Archaea, Botany and Actinobacteria. His study in Botany is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Salinity and Halophile. His research in Ribosomal RNA focuses on subjects like 16S ribosomal RNA, which are connected to Microbiology, Phylogenetic tree and Zoology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genome (37.59%)
  • Metagenomics (36.17%)
  • Genetics (27.66%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Metagenomics (36.17%)
  • Genome (37.59%)
  • Evolutionary biology (20.57%)

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

Francisco Rodriguez-Valera mainly investigates Metagenomics, Genome, Evolutionary biology, Ecology and Gene. His Metagenomics study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Synechococcus, Prochlorococcus and Microbial ecology, Archaea, Bacteria. His work carried out in the field of Bacteria brings together such families of science as Biodiversity and Ecology.

To a larger extent, Francisco Rodriguez-Valera studies Genetics with the aim of understanding Genome. His research integrates issues of Clade, Candidatus, Marine bacteriophage, Genomics and Host in his study of Evolutionary biology. In the field of Ecology, his study on Water column, Mediterranean sea and Aphotic zone overlaps with subjects such as Bathyal zone.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Minimum information about an uncultivated virus genome (MIUVIG) (123 citations)
  • Single-virus genomics reveals hidden cosmopolitan and abundant viruses (85 citations)
  • Genomes of Novel Microbial Lineages Assembled from the Sub-Ice Waters of Lake Baikal (48 citations)

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

  • Bacteria
  • Gene
  • DNA

Francisco Rodriguez-Valera focuses on Metagenomics, Genome, Evolutionary biology, Ecology and Bathyal zone. His Metagenomics study combines topics in areas such as Verrucomicrobia, Actinobacteria, Protist, Phylogenetics and RuBisCO. Gene and Genetics are the main areas of his Genome studies.

The various areas that Francisco Rodriguez-Valera examines in his Gene study include Function and Ribosomal protein. His studies deal with areas such as Prokaryote, Clade, Phylogenetic tree and Genomics as well as Evolutionary biology. Water column, Photic zone and Mediterranean sea are the primary areas of interest in his Ecology study.
