Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • DNA

Frank W. Nicholas mostly deals with Genetics, Genome, Biotechnology, Whole genome sequencing and Selection. Many of his studies involve connections with topics such as Computational biology and Genetics. His study on Genome is covered under Gene.

His Taurine cattle and Synteny study, which is part of a larger body of work in Gene, is frequently linked to Segmental duplication, bridging the gap between disciplines. His research in Biotechnology tackles topics such as Plant disease resistance which are related to areas like Livestock, Bacteria, Myiasis, Escherichia coli and Mastitis. His research in Selection intersects with topics in Coefficient of variation and Inbreeding.

His most cited work include:

  • The Genome Sequence of Taurine Cattle: A Window to Ruminant Biology and Evolution (927 citations)
  • Breeding for Disease Resistance in Farm Animals (266 citations)
  • The sheep genome illuminates biology of the rumen and lipid metabolism (261 citations)

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

His main research concerns Genetics, Genome, Selection, Veterinary medicine and Heritability. His work on Genetics deals in particular with Gene, Genetic marker, Single-nucleotide polymorphism, Microsatellite and Quantitative trait locus. His Genomics, Bovine genome and Whole genome sequencing study in the realm of Genome connects with subjects such as Sequence assembly.

His research investigates the connection between Selection and topics such as Inbreeding that intersect with problems in Dairy cattle. His work in Veterinary medicine covers topics such as Genetic variation which are related to areas like Genetic variability. The study incorporates disciplines such as Ecology, Crocodylus, Immunology and Animal science in addition to Heritability.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (38.89%)
  • Genome (14.20%)
  • Selection (13.58%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2008-2021)?

  • Genetics (38.89%)
  • Veterinary medicine (12.96%)
  • Genome (14.20%)

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

Genetics, Veterinary medicine, Genome, Demography and Selection are his primary areas of study. His Genetics research focuses on Whole genome sequencing, Genetic marker, Microsatellite, Mendelian inheritance and Genetic variation. His research investigates the link between Veterinary medicine and topics such as Genetic correlation that cross with problems in Foot rot.

His Genome research is included under the broader classification of Gene. His Gene research incorporates elements of Digestion and Lipid metabolism. The concepts of his Selection study are interwoven with issues in Surgery and Selective breeding.

Between 2008 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The Genome Sequence of Taurine Cattle: A Window to Ruminant Biology and Evolution (927 citations)
  • The sheep genome illuminates biology of the rumen and lipid metabolism (261 citations)
  • A genome wide survey of SNP variation reveals the genetic structure of sheep breeds. (230 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • DNA

Frank W. Nicholas focuses on Genetics, Veterinary medicine, Whole genome sequencing, Genome and Demography. His Genetics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Mastitis and Somatic cell count. His Veterinary medicine research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Feces, Major histocompatibility, Larva, Class I Antigens and Helminthiasis.

His studies deal with areas such as Tammar wallaby, Synteny and Genomics as well as Whole genome sequencing. His work carried out in the field of Genome brings together such families of science as Lipid metabolism, Ovis and Keratin. In general Gene, his work in Bovine genome and Taurine cattle is often linked to Segmental duplication and Rumen linking many areas of study.
