Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • Genome

George K. Christophides focuses on Anopheles gambiae, Genetics, Anopheles, Gene and Innate immune system. His Anopheles gambiae research includes themes of Oxidative stress, Gene expression profiling, Virology, Immune system and Plasmodium berghei. George K. Christophides works mostly in the field of Genetics, limiting it down to topics relating to Population genetics and, in certain cases, Genetic algorithm, as a part of the same area of interest.

The various areas that George K. Christophides examines in his Anopheles study include Vector and Aedes aegypti. His Gene and Genome and Expressed sequence tag investigations all form part of his Gene research activities. His Innate immune system research integrates issues from Immunity and Midgut.

His most cited work include:

  • The Genome Sequence of the Malaria Mosquito Anopheles gambiae (1783 citations)
  • Immunity-Related Genes and Gene Families in Anopheles gambiae (772 citations)
  • Evolutionary Dynamics of Immune-Related Genes and Pathways in Disease-Vector Mosquitoes (474 citations)

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

His main research concerns Anopheles gambiae, Genetics, Malaria, Gene and Plasmodium berghei. His research integrates issues of Virology, Innate immune system, Immune system, Anopheles and Midgut in his study of Anopheles gambiae. His Anopheles study combines topics in areas such as Vector and Aedes aegypti.

His research in Vector focuses on subjects like Aedes, which are connected to Aedes albopictus. His study looks at the relationship between Gene and topics such as Computational biology, which overlap with Gene drive and Genomics. His Plasmodium berghei research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Gametocyte, Gene silencing, Microbiology and Anopheles stephensi.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Anopheles gambiae (44.03%)
  • Genetics (38.06%)
  • Malaria (34.33%)

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

  • Malaria (34.33%)
  • Plasmodium falciparum (17.91%)
  • Gene (33.58%)

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

George K. Christophides mainly focuses on Malaria, Plasmodium falciparum, Gene, Plasmodium and Genetics. His work is dedicated to discovering how Malaria, Virology are connected with Innate immune system, Vector, Antimicrobial peptides and Magainin and other disciplines. His Plasmodium falciparum study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Anopheles gambiae, Tropical medicine and Environmental health.

His study in the fields of Gene silencing under the domain of Gene overlaps with other disciplines such as RNA silencing. His study in Plasmodium is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Anopheles, Host, Microbiology and Plasmodium berghei. His research investigates the connection with Genetics and areas like Gametocyte which intersect with concerns in Phenotype.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • A comprehensive analysis of malaria transmission in Brazil. (22 citations)
  • Toward the Definition of Efficacy and Safety Criteria for Advancing Gene Drive-Modified Mosquitoes to Field Testing (13 citations)
  • Converting endogenous genes of the malaria mosquito into simple non-autonomous gene drives for population replacement (11 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • Genome

His scientific interests lie mostly in Anopheles gambiae, Plasmodium falciparum, Malaria, Gene drive and Virology. George K. Christophides incorporates Anopheles gambiae and Proteases in his studies. His Plasmodium falciparum research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Tropical medicine and Environmental health.

The various areas that George K. Christophides examines in his Malaria study include Promoter, Computational biology, Regulatory sequence and Intron. His work carried out in the field of Virology brings together such families of science as Vector, Plasmodium, Antimicrobial peptides, Anopheles and Innate immune system. He usually deals with Innate immune system and limits it to topics linked to Plasmodium berghei and Gene expression, Euchromatin and Gene.
