Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • DNA

His primary areas of investigation include Genetics, Quantitative trait locus, Gene, Allele and Animal science. His study in Genetic diversity extends to Genetics with its themes. Graham Plastow has included themes like Biotechnology, Linkage disequilibrium, Genetic linkage, Digestion and Family-based QTL mapping in his Quantitative trait locus study.

His study connects Adipose tissue and Gene. His Allele research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Genetic marker, Molecular biology, Single-nucleotide polymorphism and Locus. His Animal science research includes themes of Endocrinology and Estrogen.

His most cited work include:

  • Genome-wide survey of SNP variation uncovers the genetic structure of cattle breeds. (651 citations)
  • EFFECTS OF BREED, DIET AND MUSCLE ON FAT DEPOSITION AND EATING QUALITY IN PIGS (335 citations)
  • The estrogen receptor locus is associated with a major gene influencing litter size in pigs (329 citations)

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

Graham Plastow spends much of his time researching Genetics, Animal science, Gene, Quantitative trait locus and Genotype. His work in Single-nucleotide polymorphism, Allele, Candidate gene, Genetic marker and Genome-wide association study is related to Genetics. His work in the fields of Animal science, such as Beef cattle, Crossbreed and Breed, overlaps with other areas such as Residual feed intake.

Quality is closely connected to Biotechnology in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Breed. The various areas that he examines in his Gene study include Molecular biology and Virology. His study ties his expertise on Linkage disequilibrium together with the subject of Quantitative trait locus.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (37.22%)
  • Animal science (18.06%)
  • Gene (18.61%)

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

  • Animal science (18.06%)
  • Genetics (37.22%)
  • Disease (6.39%)

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

His main research concerns Animal science, Genetics, Disease, Heritability and Resilience. His work on Crossbreed, Beef cattle and Dry matter as part of general Animal science research is frequently linked to Residual feed intake and Breeding program, bridging the gap between disciplines. Single-nucleotide polymorphism, Genome-wide association study, Quantitative trait locus, Allele and Genotype are the primary areas of interest in his Genetics study.

His studies link Locus with Quantitative trait locus. His Genotype research incorporates elements of Porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus, Virus and Breed. The concepts of his Disease study are interwoven with issues in Biotechnology and Immunology.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Host genetics influence the rumen microbiota and heritable rumen microbial features associate with feed efficiency in cattle (74 citations)
  • Review: Biological determinants of between-animal variation in feed efficiency of growing beef cattle. (51 citations)
  • Genome-wide association studies to identify quantitative trait loci affecting milk production traits in water buffalo (32 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • DNA

Graham Plastow mainly investigates Genetics, Quantitative trait locus, Single-nucleotide polymorphism, Animal science and Genome-wide association study. Specifically, his work in Genetics is concerned with the study of Allele. His Single-nucleotide polymorphism research focuses on Candidate gene and how it relates to Haplotype.

His research investigates the link between Animal science and topics such as Heritability that cross with problems in Mink, Disease, Genetic correlation and Rumen. As part of the same scientific family, Graham Plastow usually focuses on Genome-wide association study, concentrating on Locus and intersecting with Dairy cattle. His studies in Crossbreed integrate themes in fields like Veterinary medicine and Breed.
