Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • DNA

Gurdev S. Khush mainly focuses on Genetics, Oryza sativa, Agronomy, Botany and Gene. His Genetics research focuses on Genome, Restriction fragment length polymorphism, Genetic marker, Quantitative trait locus and Gene mapping. In his research, Restriction fragment and Null allele is intimately related to Chromosome, which falls under the overarching field of Genome.

The various areas that Gurdev S. Khush examines in his Oryza sativa study include Cultivar, Poaceae, Hybrid and Introgression. Gurdev S. Khush focuses mostly in the field of Agronomy, narrowing it down to topics relating to Japonica and, in certain cases, Grain yield and Canopy. His Botany research integrates issues from Genetically modified crops and Oryza longistaminata.

His most cited work include:

  • Rice yields decline with higher night temperature from global warming (1538 citations)
  • Molecular mapping of rice chromosomes. (985 citations)
  • Origin, dispersal, cultivation and variation of rice. (923 citations)

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

Gurdev S. Khush focuses on Genetics, Gene, Oryza sativa, Botany and Agronomy. Gene mapping, Genome, Genetic marker, Chromosome and Restriction fragment length polymorphism are subfields of Genetics in which his conducts study. As a part of the same scientific family, Gurdev S. Khush mostly works in the field of Gene, focusing on Cultivar and, on occasion, Genetic analysis, Resistance and Inoculation.

His Oryza sativa research incorporates elements of Introgression, Quantitative trait locus, Amylose, Backcrossing and Poaceae. His Botany study incorporates themes from Genetically modified crops and Brown planthopper. His work in Agronomy covers topics such as Biotechnology which are related to areas like Agriculture.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (43.99%)
  • Gene (31.01%)
  • Oryza sativa (30.38%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2002-2020)?

  • Genetics (43.99%)
  • Gene (31.01%)
  • Agronomy (18.67%)

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

Gurdev S. Khush mostly deals with Genetics, Gene, Agronomy, Botany and Quantitative trait locus. Genetics is represented through his Oryza sativa, Mutant, Genome, Genetic marker and Gene mapping research. His Gene study combines topics in areas such as Cultivar and Hybrid.

His Agronomy research includes themes of Biotechnology and Introgression. The study incorporates disciplines such as Chromosome, Oryza and Cell biology in addition to Botany. His Quantitative trait locus research incorporates themes from Temperate climate, Panicle, Horticulture, Allele and Inbred strain.

Between 2002 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • Rice yields decline with higher night temperature from global warming (1538 citations)
  • What it will take to feed 5.0 billion rice consumers in 2030. (760 citations)
  • Progress in ideotype breeding to increase rice yield potential (458 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • DNA

His main research concerns Agronomy, Oryza sativa, Genetics, Quantitative trait locus and Panicle. His Agronomy research includes themes of Biotechnology and Green Revolution. The Oryza sativa study combines topics in areas such as genomic DNA, Poaceae, Restriction fragment length polymorphism and Introgression.

His research ties RAPD and Genetics together. He has included themes like Gene mapping, Molecular marker, Botany and Gene–environment interaction in his Quantitative trait locus study. His Panicle study also includes fields such as

  • Japonica and related Canopy and Heterosis,
  • Tiller that intertwine with fields like Allele.
