Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Virus
  • Ecology
  • Gene

His primary areas of study are Virology, Veterinary medicine, Neospora caninum, Virus and Herd. His Virology study frequently draws connections between related disciplines such as Serology. His Veterinary medicine research includes elements of Transmission, Echinococcus multilocularis, Vulpes and Epidemiology.

Franz Josef Conraths interconnects Feces, Apicomplexa and Antigen in the investigation of issues within Neospora caninum. The concepts of his Virus study are interwoven with issues in Rabies, Polymerase, White stork and Myotis nattereri. His Herd research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Dairy cattle, Coccidiosis, Abortion and Seroprevalence.

His most cited work include:

  • Echinococcosis: an emerging or re-emerging zoonosis? (297 citations)
  • The efficiency of vertical transmission of Neospora caninum in dairy cattle analysed by serological techniques (253 citations)
  • ‘Schmallenberg virus’ – a novel orthobunyavirus emerging in Europe (180 citations)

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

Franz Josef Conraths focuses on Virology, Veterinary medicine, Outbreak, Toxoplasma gondii and Neospora caninum. He combines subjects such as Serology, Antibody and Antigen with his study of Virology. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Livestock, Epidemiology and Seroprevalence.

His Outbreak research integrates issues from Influenza A virus subtype H5N1 and Disease. His Toxoplasma gondii research incorporates elements of Toxoplasmosis, Genotype and Microbiology. His study in Neospora caninum is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Besnoitia, Coccidiosis and Apicomplexa.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Virology (34.00%)
  • Veterinary medicine (30.86%)
  • Outbreak (14.29%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Wild boar (9.14%)
  • Veterinary medicine (30.86%)
  • Zoology (7.43%)

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

Franz Josef Conraths mainly focuses on Wild boar, Veterinary medicine, Zoology, African swine fever and Outbreak. His work deals with themes such as Domestic pig, Serology, Epidemiology and Control, which intersect with Wild boar. The Serology study combines topics in areas such as Ribosomal RNA, 18S ribosomal RNA, Woodland caribou and Virology.

His Virology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Zoonotic Infection, Immunity and Anas. His work carried out in the field of Veterinary medicine brings together such families of science as Virus, Livestock and Seroprevalence. His Zoology research incorporates themes from Besnoitia, Genotype, Ribosomal DNA, Neospora caninum and Typing.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Toxoplasma gondii infection and toxoplasmosis in farm animals: Risk factors and economic impact. (56 citations)
  • Epidemiological evaluation of Latvian control measures for African swine fever in wild boar on the basis of surveillance data (27 citations)
  • Pitfalls in SARS-CoV-2 PCR diagnostics. (23 citations)

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

  • Virus
  • Ecology
  • Gene

Franz Josef Conraths mainly investigates Wild boar, African swine fever, Veterinary medicine, Domestic pig and Outbreak. Franz Josef Conraths combines subjects such as Zoology, Virus and Vulpes with his study of Wild boar. Franz Josef Conraths has researched Virus in several fields, including Feces and Polymerase chain reaction.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Population density, Surveillance data, Epidemiology, Disease and Serology in addition to African swine fever. His Veterinary medicine research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Seroprevalence, Incidence and Genotype. His Outbreak research includes elements of Transmission, Susceptible individual and Contagious disease.
