Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Statistics
  • Genetics
  • Gene

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Herd, Somatic cell, Somatic cell count, Animal science and Lactation. His study in Herd is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Dairy cattle and Sire. His Somatic cell study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Statistical hypothesis testing, Homogeneity, Chi-square test and Kurtosis.

His study focuses on the intersection of Somatic cell count and fields such as Genetic correlation with connections in the field of Biotechnology. His Animal science research includes themes of Indirect selection, Parity, Regression and Milk yield. Lactation and Statistics are frequently intertwined in his study.

His most cited work include:

  • An optimum transformation for somatic cell concentration in milk. (468 citations)
  • Selection on Somatic Cell Score to Improve Resistance to Mastitis in the United States (170 citations)
  • Selection for disease resistance. (169 citations)

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

Animal science, Statistics, Herd, Sire and Dairy cattle are his primary areas of study. His work carried out in the field of Animal science brings together such families of science as Lactation, Somatic cell count, Milk yield and Lactose. The concepts of his Somatic cell count study are interwoven with issues in Intramammary infection and Somatic cell.

When carried out as part of a general Statistics research project, his work on Standard deviation, Homogeneity and Normality is frequently linked to work in Random effects model and Homogeneous, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study. His Culling study in the realm of Herd connects with subjects such as Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis and Feces. His Sire research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Quantitative trait locus, Artificial insemination and Heritability.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Animal science (28.57%)
  • Statistics (25.00%)
  • Herd (25.00%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2011-2018)?

  • Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis (10.71%)
  • Herd (25.00%)
  • Genome-wide association study (7.14%)

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

George E. Shook mostly deals with Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis, Herd, Genome-wide association study, Single-nucleotide polymorphism and Veterinary medicine. His studies in Herd integrate themes in fields like Variables, Sampling, Somatic cell count, Milking and Receiver operating characteristic. In his research on the topic of Genome-wide association study, Culling and Genetic variation is strongly related with Genetic marker.

The various areas that George E. Shook examines in his Veterinary medicine study include Lactation, Immunology, Intramammary infection, Heritability and Animal science. He interconnects Dairy cattle, Disease and Sire in the investigation of issues within Immunology. His work on Animal science is being expanded to include thematically relevant topics such as Logistic regression.

Between 2011 and 2018, his most popular works were:

  • Genome-Wide Association Analysis and Genomic Prediction of Mycobacterium avium Subspecies paratuberculosis Infection in US Jersey Cattle (35 citations)
  • Genome-Wide Association Study of Susceptibility to Infection by Mycobacterium avium Subspecies paratuberculosis in Holstein Cattle (28 citations)
  • Genetic Selection for Mastitis Resistance. (18 citations)

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

  • Genetics
  • Gene
  • Statistics

George E. Shook spends much of his time researching Single-nucleotide polymorphism, Herd, Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis, Genome-wide association study and Somatic cell count. The study incorporates disciplines such as Culling, Immunology, Genetic marker, Jersey cattle and Genetic variation in addition to Single-nucleotide polymorphism. His Herd research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Genetics, Bayes' theorem and Genotype.

His Somatic cell count research incorporates themes from Environmental health, Dairy cattle, Disease, Risk of infection and Sire. Risk of infection is closely attributed to Incidence in his research.
