Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Genetics

Huntington F. Willard mainly focuses on Genetics, Molecular biology, X chromosome, Gene and Chromosome. While working in this field, Huntington F. Willard studies both Genetics and Restriction fragment length polymorphism. His Molecular biology course of study focuses on Histone methyltransferase and Nucleosome and Solenoid.

His X chromosome research integrates issues from Chromosome 4, Chromosome 3 and Dicentric chromosome. His study looks at the relationship between Chromosome and fields such as Repeated sequence, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems. Huntington F. Willard interconnects Allele, Haplotype and Somatic cell in the investigation of issues within X-inactivation.

His most cited work include:

  • Report of the committee on the genetic constitution of the X chromosome (547 citations)
  • Prenatal diagnosis and carrier detection of Duchenne muscular dystrophy with closely linked RFLPs. (340 citations)
  • A first-generation X-inactivation profile of the human X chromosome. (315 citations)

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

His main research concerns Genetics, X chromosome, Molecular biology, Gene and X-inactivation. Chromosome, DNA, Centromere, Locus and Satellite DNA are among the areas of Genetics where Huntington F. Willard concentrates his study. While the research belongs to areas of Centromere, Huntington F. Willard spends his time largely on the problem of Chromosome 17, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Chromosome 16, Chromosome 22, Chromosome 19 and Chromosome 21.

His X chromosome research includes elements of Mutation, Karyotype and Gene mapping. His research in Molecular biology intersects with topics in Complementary DNA, Fluorescence in situ hybridization, Biochemistry and Yeast artificial chromosome. The various areas that he examines in his X-inactivation study include Gene expression and Allele.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (73.53%)
  • X chromosome (38.24%)
  • Molecular biology (35.29%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 1999-2014)?

  • Genetics (73.53%)
  • X chromosome (38.24%)
  • X-inactivation (24.02%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Genetics, X chromosome, X-inactivation, Molecular biology and Gene. His study in Human artificial chromosome, Centromere, Yeast artificial chromosome, Chromosome 17 and Phylogenetics falls within the category of Genetics. His research integrates issues of Chromosome 19, Chromosome 21, Chromosome 4, Chromosome 3 and Chromosome 16 in his study of Yeast artificial chromosome.

Huntington F. Willard works mostly in the field of X chromosome, limiting it down to topics relating to Genetic linkage and, in certain cases, Genetic determinism and Heterozygote advantage. XIST and Barr body are the primary areas of interest in his X-inactivation study. His study explores the link between Molecular biology and topics such as Histone H2A that cross with problems in Histone code and Histone H1.

Between 1999 and 2014, his most popular works were:

  • Multiple spatially distinct types of facultative heterochromatin on the human inactive X chromosome (197 citations)
  • A Novel Chromatin Protein, Distantly Related to Histone H2a, Is Largely Excluded from the Inactive X Chromosome (179 citations)
  • Development and application of a phylogenomic toolkit: Resolving the evolutionary history of Madagascar’s lemurs (177 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Mutation

Huntington F. Willard mainly focuses on Genetics, Molecular biology, X chromosome, Histone H2A and Centromere. His Molecular biology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Heterochromatin, Histone H3 and Histone methylation. The study incorporates disciplines such as Genetic determinism and Genetic linkage in addition to X chromosome.

His Histone H2A study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Histone methyltransferase, Histone octamer, Histone code, Histone H1 and X-inactivation. The concepts of his Centromere study are interwoven with issues in Bacterial artificial chromosome and Chromosome 17. His studies deal with areas such as Computational biology and Cloning vector as well as Chromosome.
