Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Biochemistry
  • Enzyme
  • Internal medicine

Food science, Animal science, Animal feed, Weaning and Dietary fiber are his primary areas of study. His Food science research includes themes of Excretion and Marbled meat. His work carried out in the field of Animal science brings together such families of science as Ethanol, Biochemistry, Lysine, Weight gain and Ovarian follicle.

His Biochemistry study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Dietary Copper, Nutrient and Distillers grains. The concepts of his Animal feed study are interwoven with issues in Meal, Antimicrobial, Bioavailability, Yeast and Digestion. His Dietary fiber research includes elements of Fiber and Chemical composition.

His most cited work include:

  • Nutrient database for distiller's dried grains with solubles produced from new ethanol plants in Minnesota and South Dakota. (501 citations)
  • BOARD-INVITED REVIEW: The use and application of distillers dried grains with solubles in swine diets (400 citations)
  • Growth promotion effects and plasma changes from feeding high dietary concentrations of zinc and copper to weanling pigs (regional study). (192 citations)

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

Gerald C Shurson focuses on Food science, Animal science, Meal, Distillers grains and Nutrient. Gerald C Shurson integrates Food science with Composition in his study. Gerald C Shurson has included themes like Lactation and Gestation in his Animal science study.

Gerald C Shurson interconnects Endocrinology and Internal medicine in the investigation of issues within Lactation. His study looks at the relationship between Meal and topics such as Polyunsaturated fatty acid, which overlap with Iodine value. His Distillers grains study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Ethanol and Ethanol fuel.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Food science (50.47%)
  • Animal science (33.64%)
  • Meal (21.03%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Food science (50.47%)
  • Animal science (33.64%)
  • Fermentation (6.07%)

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

His main research concerns Food science, Animal science, Fermentation, Nutrient and Meal. His studies deal with areas such as Amino acid, In vitro, Fiber, Enzyme and Soybean meal as well as Food science. His work in the fields of Animal science, such as Weaning and Animal feed, overlaps with other areas such as Composition.

His study in Animal feed is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Weight gain, Food waste and Random allocation. In Nutrient, he works on issues like Randomized block design, which are connected to Food processing. His research in Meal intersects with topics in Distillers grains, Saturated fatty acid, Zearalenone, Zinc and Polyunsaturated fatty acid.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Yeast and yeast derivatives in feed additives and ingredients: Sources, characteristics, animal responses, and quantification methods (76 citations)
  • Dietary fiber sources and non-starch polysaccharide-degrading enzymes modify mucin expression and the immune profile of the swine ileum. (17 citations)
  • Amino acid composition and digestible amino acid content in animal protein by-product meals fed to growing pigs (7 citations)

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

  • Biochemistry
  • Enzyme
  • Food science

His primary scientific interests are in Food science, Animal science, Soybean meal, Meal and Antioxidant. He does research in Food science, focusing on Animal feed specifically. His work on Weaning as part of general Animal science study is frequently linked to Factorial experiment, bridging the gap between disciplines.

His Soybean meal research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Municipal solid waste, Food waste, Proximate and Sinapine. Many of his studies on Meal apply to Distillers grains as well. His work deals with themes such as Digestion, Ferulic acid and Metabolism, which intersect with Antioxidant.
