Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Ecology
  • Genetics

Gene E. Robinson mostly deals with Honey bee, Ecology, Genetics, Foraging and Zoology. His studies deal with areas such as Mushroom bodies, Eusociality, Brood and Juvenile hormone as well as Honey bee. His Mushroom bodies research includes elements of Neuroscience and Sensory system.

His Aculeata, Queen mandibular pheromone, Insect and Pheromone study, which is part of a larger body of work in Ecology, is frequently linked to Division of labour, bridging the gap between disciplines. His work carried out in the field of Aculeata brings together such families of science as Apoidea and Animal ecology. His studies deal with areas such as Apidae, Ontogeny, Nest and Nectar as well as Foraging.

His most cited work include:

  • Insights into social insects from the genome of the honeybee Apis mellifera (1472 citations)
  • REGULATION OF DIVISION OF LABOR IN INSECT SOCIETIES (945 citations)
  • Big data: Astronomical or genomical? (687 citations)

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

His main research concerns Honey bee, Ecology, Zoology, Foraging and Juvenile hormone. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Genetics, Honey Bees, Mushroom bodies and Apidae, Hymenoptera. His Apidae research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Aculeata and Apoidea.

In the subject of general Ecology, his work in Pheromone, Nest and Eusociality is often linked to Division of labour, thereby combining diverse domains of study. The study incorporates disciplines such as Insect and Larva in addition to Zoology. He studies Forage which is a part of Foraging.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Honey bee (52.05%)
  • Ecology (31.51%)
  • Zoology (27.67%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2013-2021)?

  • Honey bee (52.05%)
  • Evolutionary biology (12.88%)
  • Gene (15.62%)

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

Gene E. Robinson focuses on Honey bee, Evolutionary biology, Gene, Genetics and Eusociality. Gene E. Robinson is conducting research in Zoology and Ecology as part of his Honey bee study. In the field of Ecology, his study on Ecology overlaps with subjects such as Gambit.

Gene E. Robinson works mostly in the field of Evolutionary biology, limiting it down to topics relating to Gene regulatory network and, in certain cases, Phenotype, as a part of the same area of interest. His work in Gene addresses subjects such as Computational biology, which are connected to disciplines such as Sequence assembly, DNA sequencing, Genome and Genomics. His Eusociality research incorporates themes from Bombus terrestris and Bumblebee.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Big data: Astronomical or genomical? (687 citations)
  • Finding the missing honey bee genes: Lessons learned from a genome upgrade (282 citations)
  • Genomic signatures of evolutionary transitions from solitary to group living (236 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Ecology
  • Genetics

His scientific interests lie mostly in Honey bee, Evolutionary biology, Genomics, Gene and Genetics. His research in Honey bee intersects with topics in Transcriptome, Biotechnology, Beekeeping, Chromatin and Host. In his study, Ecology is inextricably linked to Microbiome, which falls within the broad field of Host.

His research in Ecology is mostly concerned with Foraging. His Evolutionary biology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Flight behaviour, Eusociality and Selection. He has researched Genomics in several fields, including Phenotype, Adaptation, Behavioural genetics and Phenotypic plasticity.
