Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Enzyme

His main research concerns Chromatin, Genetics, Enhancer, Histone and Molecular biology. His studies in Chromatin integrate themes in fields like Locus and Cell biology. His Promoter, Epigenetics, ChIA-PET and Enhancer RNAs study in the realm of Genetics connects with subjects such as Insulator.

His work carried out in the field of Enhancer brings together such families of science as Regulation of gene expression, Computational biology and Binding site. Gary Felsenfeld works mostly in the field of Histone, limiting it down to topics relating to Gene expression and, in certain cases, Cellular differentiation. His research in Molecular biology intersects with topics in Reporter gene, Regulatory sequence and Reticulocyte.

His most cited work include:

  • Methylation of a CTCF-dependent boundary controls imprinted expression of the Igf2 gene (1431 citations)
  • The Protein CTCF Is Required for the Enhancer Blocking Activity of Vertebrate Insulators (951 citations)
  • Controlling the double helix (924 citations)

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

Chromatin, Molecular biology, DNA, Genetics and Histone are his primary areas of study. His Chromatin study frequently draws connections between related disciplines such as Cell biology. His Molecular biology research focuses on Transcription and how it relates to RNA.

His research investigates the connection between DNA and topics such as Crystallography that intersect with problems in Z-DNA and Denaturation. Many of his studies on Genetics apply to Computational biology as well. His study in Histone is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Heterochromatin and Acetylation.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Chromatin (47.30%)
  • Molecular biology (36.94%)
  • DNA (29.73%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2006-2021)?

  • Chromatin (47.30%)
  • Genetics (26.13%)
  • Cell biology (25.68%)

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

Gary Felsenfeld mainly focuses on Chromatin, Genetics, Cell biology, Molecular biology and Histone. His Chromatin research includes elements of Enhancer and CTCF. His study on Locus, Globin and Mitosis is often connected to SNP as part of broader study in Genetics.

His Cell biology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of RNA, Insulin, Induced pluripotent stem cell and Heterochromatin protein 1. His studies deal with areas such as RNA polymerase I, Gene silencing, Histone H3 and RNA interference as well as Molecular biology. Gary Felsenfeld has included themes like Acetylation and Epigenetics in his Histone study.

Between 2006 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • H3.3/H2A.Z double variant-containing nucleosomes mark 'nucleosome-free regions' of active promoters and other regulatory regions. (604 citations)
  • Nucleosome stability mediated by histone variants H3.3 and H2A.Z. (432 citations)
  • We gather together: insulators and genome organization. (351 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Enzyme

Gary Felsenfeld focuses on Chromatin, Genetics, Molecular biology, CTCF and Enhancer. His Chromatin research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Regulation of gene expression, Histone and Cell biology. As a part of the same scientific family, he mostly works in the field of Genetics, focusing on Evolutionary biology and, on occasion, DNA methylation, Organism and Epigenesis.

His Molecular biology study combines topics in areas such as Histone H2A, Position effect, Gene silencing, Sequence analysis and Chromosomal Position Effects. His Enhancer study which covers Locus that intersects with DNA, CpG site, Transcription factories and Transcription factor. Gary Felsenfeld works mostly in the field of Nucleosome, limiting it down to concerns involving Promoter and, occasionally, Histone methylation and Histone code.
