His scientific interests lie mostly in Centromere, Human artificial chromosome, Genetics, Cell biology and Chromatin. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including DNA, Molecular biology and Kinetochore. He combines subjects such as Chromosome instability, Computational biology, Epigenetics and Gene delivery with his study of Human artificial chromosome.
As a member of one scientific family, Hiroshi Masumoto mostly works in the field of Cell biology, focusing on Metaphase and, on occasion, Anaphase. His work on Heterochromatin, Histone H3 and Centromere Protein A as part of general Chromatin study is frequently linked to Chromatin immunoprecipitation, bridging the gap between disciplines. In his study, HMG-box is inextricably linked to Satellite DNA, which falls within the broad field of Centromere protein B.
Hiroshi Masumoto mainly focuses on Human artificial chromosome, Centromere, Cell biology, Chromatin and Kinetochore. Hiroshi Masumoto has included themes like Chromosome instability, Epigenetics and Computational biology in his Human artificial chromosome study. Genetics covers Hiroshi Masumoto research in Centromere.
His Cell biology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Arabidopsis thaliana, Meristem, Chromosome segregation and Ectopic expression. His work carried out in the field of Chromatin brings together such families of science as TetR, Histone and Molecular biology. His studies deal with areas such as Molecular evolution, Repeated sequence and Contig as well as Centromere protein B.
Hiroshi Masumoto spends much of his time researching Centromere, Genetics, Chromatin, Kinetochore and Cell biology. His Centromere research focuses on Centromere Protein A in particular. Molecular biology is closely connected to Histone H2A in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Centromere Protein A.
His work on Histone expands to the thematically related Chromatin. His Cell biology research incorporates themes from Satellite chromosome, Polytene chromosome, Premature chromosome condensation and Metaphase. His Human artificial chromosome research includes elements of Biomedicine, Biotechnology and Gene expression.
