Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • Bacteria

His primary scientific interests are in Cryptosporidium parvum, Genetics, Genotype, Apicomplexa and Microbiology. Cryptosporidium parvum is the subject of his research, which falls under Virology. Giovanni Widmer has researched Genotype in several fields, including Molecular biology and Polymerase chain reaction.

In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Apicomplexa, Phenotype is strongly linked to Genetic analysis. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Human gastrointestinal tract and Genetic variability. The study incorporates disciplines such as Sequence analysis and Cryptosporidium hominis in addition to Genome.

His most cited work include:

  • Complete genome sequence of the apicomplexan, Cryptosporidium parvum. (757 citations)
  • The genome of Cryptosporidium hominis (433 citations)
  • Cryptosporidium hominis: experimental challenge of healthy adults. (174 citations)

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

Giovanni Widmer spends much of his time researching Cryptosporidium parvum, Cryptosporidium, Microbiology, Genetics and Genotype. His work deals with themes such as Cryptosporidium hominis, Gene, Polymerase chain reaction and Apicomplexa, which intersect with Cryptosporidium parvum. His Cryptosporidium research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Probiotic, Genetic diversity, 18S ribosomal RNA, Nested polymerase chain reaction and Veterinary medicine.

He interconnects Infectivity, Cell culture and Diarrhea in the investigation of issues within Microbiology. His Genotype research incorporates elements of Zoology and Microsatellite, Allele. The concepts of his Virology study are interwoven with issues in Enterocytozoon bieneusi and Immunity.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Cryptosporidium parvum (62.20%)
  • Cryptosporidium (40.16%)
  • Microbiology (37.80%)

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

  • Cryptosporidium parvum (62.20%)
  • Cryptosporidium (40.16%)
  • Microbiology (37.80%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Cryptosporidium parvum, Cryptosporidium, Microbiology, Feces and Microbiome. His Cryptosporidium parvum study is associated with Virology. His Cryptosporidium study incorporates themes from Veterinary medicine, Genetic similarity, Epidemiology and Environmental health.

His work on Enteric virus as part of general Microbiology research is frequently linked to Ginseng, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science. The Feces study combines topics in areas such as Zoology, Captivity and Colitis. His Microbiome research includes elements of Bacterial population and In vivo.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Probiotic Product Enhances Susceptibility of Mice to Cryptosporidiosis. (19 citations)
  • Maternal high fat diet and its consequence on the gut microbiome: A rat model. (19 citations)
  • Transcriptome analysis of pig intestinal cell monolayers infected with Cryptosporidium parvum asexual stages. (16 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • Bacteria

Giovanni Widmer mainly investigates Cryptosporidium parvum, Cryptosporidium, Microbiology, Cryptosporidium hominis and Gut flora. Giovanni Widmer incorporates Cryptosporidium parvum and Cryopreservation in his studies. His research integrates issues of 18S ribosomal RNA, Genome, Vertebrate and Genotype in his study of Cryptosporidium.

Giovanni Widmer combines subjects such as Infectivity, Infant diarrhea and Intracellular with his study of Microbiology. His Cryptosporidium hominis study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Cryptosporidium muris, Virology, Ribosomal RNA, Genus and Host specificity. His Gut flora research focuses on subjects like Probiotic, which are linked to Diarrhea.
