Fred Winston mostly deals with Genetics, Transcription, Chromatin, RNA polymerase II and Molecular biology. His Genetics study is mostly concerned with SWI/SNF, Gene, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Promoter and Chromatin remodeling. His work in Transcription addresses issues such as Transcription factor, which are connected to fields such as Fungal protein.
Fred Winston is interested in Histone code, which is a field of Chromatin. The study incorporates disciplines such as Transcription factor II D, General transcription factor and RNA polymerase II holoenzyme in addition to RNA polymerase II. His studies deal with areas such as Negative elongation factor and Escherichia coli as well as Molecular biology.
His primary areas of investigation include Genetics, Transcription, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Gene and Chromatin. His study in Transcription factor, Mutant, Promoter, RNA polymerase II and TATA box is carried out as part of his studies in Genetics. His study in Transcription is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both DNA-binding protein and Cell biology.
His Saccharomyces cerevisiae research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Plasmid and Nuclear protein. His research investigates the connection between Gene and topics such as Molecular biology that intersect with issues in Negative elongation factor and Complementation. As a member of one scientific family, Fred Winston mostly works in the field of Chromatin, focusing on Histone and, on occasion, Chaperone.
Fred Winston spends much of his time researching Genetics, Chromatin, Cell biology, Transcription and Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Fred Winston undertakes interdisciplinary study in the fields of Genetics and Elongation factor through his works. His Chromatin research incorporates themes from Regulation of gene expression, Histone and DNA replication.
His study in Cell biology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Mutation, RNA polymerase II, Methyltransferase and DNA repair. The Transcription study combines topics in areas such as RNA, 5S ribosomal RNA and Coding region. Fred Winston has included themes like SAGA complex, Mutant and Transformation in his Saccharomyces cerevisiae study.
Fred Winston focuses on Genetics, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Transcription, Chromatin and Transcription factor. His research related to Eukaryotic transcription, Promoter, Nucleosome, Histone-modifying enzymes and Histone code might be considered part of Genetics. His work carried out in the field of Saccharomyces cerevisiae brings together such families of science as Coactivator and p38 mitogen-activated protein kinases.
His work focuses on many connections between Transcription and other disciplines, such as Coding region, that overlap with his field of interest in Transcriptional regulation, Histone, Gene expression profiling, Open reading frame and Gene prediction. He studied Transcriptional regulation and RNA polymerase II that intersect with Protein subunit, Mutant, TATA-binding protein, Molecular biology and SWI/SNF complex. Chromatin is a primary field of his research addressed under Gene.
