Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • Internal medicine

His scientific interests lie mostly in Genome-wide association study, Genetics, Single-nucleotide polymorphism, Genetic association and Gene. His Genome-wide association study research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Schizophrenia, Case-control study, Expression quantitative trait loci, Disease and Genetic architecture. Locus, Quantitative trait locus, Candidate gene, Heritability and Allele are the primary areas of interest in his Genetics study.

In his study, Body mass index is strongly linked to Demography, which falls under the umbrella field of Heritability. His research in Single-nucleotide polymorphism intersects with topics in Eye color, Internal medicine, Genetic variation and Polymorphism. Grant W. Montgomery studied Genetic association and Allele frequency that intersect with Haplotype.

His most cited work include:

  • Common SNPs explain a large proportion of the heritability for human height (3140 citations)
  • Biological, clinical and population relevance of 95 loci for blood lipids (2804 citations)
  • Association analyses of 249,796 individuals reveal 18 new loci associated with body mass index (2348 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Genetics, Genome-wide association study, Single-nucleotide polymorphism, Genetic association and Gene. His Genetics and Locus, Quantitative trait locus, Allele, Genetic linkage and Candidate gene investigations all form part of his Genetics research activities. Grant W. Montgomery has researched Genetic linkage in several fields, including Chromosome, Gene mapping and Linkage.

His studies in Genome-wide association study integrate themes in fields like Bioinformatics, Expression quantitative trait loci, Disease, Heritability and Genetic variation. His Heritability study frequently draws connections between related disciplines such as Demography. The Single-nucleotide polymorphism study combines topics in areas such as Allele frequency, Internal medicine and Haplotype.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (62.16%)
  • Genome-wide association study (46.74%)
  • Single-nucleotide polymorphism (29.69%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Genome-wide association study (46.74%)
  • Genetics (62.16%)
  • Single-nucleotide polymorphism (29.69%)

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

Grant W. Montgomery mainly focuses on Genome-wide association study, Genetics, Single-nucleotide polymorphism, Gene and Endometriosis. His Genome-wide association study research incorporates themes from Mendelian randomization, Bioinformatics, Quantitative trait locus, Expression quantitative trait loci and Genetic association. His Genetic association research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Major depressive disorder and Clinical psychology.

His is involved in several facets of Genetics study, as is seen by his studies on Heritability, Locus, DNA methylation, Genetic architecture and Genetic variation. In his research, Medical genetics is intimately related to Genetic predisposition, which falls under the overarching field of Single-nucleotide polymorphism. His Endometriosis study incorporates themes from Endometrial cancer and Oncology.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Genome-wide association analyses identify 44 risk variants and refine the genetic architecture of major depression (1131 citations)
  • Analysis of shared heritability in common disorders of the brain (726 citations)
  • Analysis of shared heritability in common disorders of the brain (726 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Genetics

Grant W. Montgomery spends much of his time researching Genome-wide association study, Genetics, Quantitative trait locus, Single-nucleotide polymorphism and Genetic association. Genome-wide association study is the subject of his research, which falls under Gene. His study in Locus, Medical genetics, Linkage disequilibrium, Allele frequency and Minor allele frequency is carried out as part of his studies in Genetics.

His Quantitative trait locus study combines topics in areas such as Expression quantitative trait loci, Mendelian Randomization Analysis and DNA methylation. His Single-nucleotide polymorphism research includes themes of Odds ratio and Bioinformatics. His studies deal with areas such as Candidate Disease Gene, Pathogenesis, Heredity, Low birth weight and Biomarker as well as Genetic association.
