Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Genome

His primary areas of investigation include Genetics, Genome, Gene, Whole genome sequencing and Genome evolution. His research brings together the fields of Computational biology and Genetics. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Evolutionary biology and Sequence analysis.

His work carried out in the field of Whole genome sequencing brings together such families of science as Microbiology, Plasmodium, Plasmodium yoelii, Synteny and Virulence. As a part of the same scientific family, J. Craig Venter mostly works in the field of Genomics, focusing on Phylogenetics and, on occasion, Ecology, Drosophila sechellia and Drosophila Protein. His research integrates issues of Genome size and Bacterial artificial chromosome in his study of Genome project.

His most cited work include:

  • The sequence of the human genome. (10608 citations)
  • Enzymatic assembly of DNA molecules up to several hundred kilobases (5351 citations)
  • The genome sequence of Drosophila melanogaster (5233 citations)

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

J. Craig Venter mostly deals with Genetics, Genome, Gene, Computational biology and Genomics. His work in Whole genome sequencing, Human genome, Genome project, DNA sequencing and Shotgun sequencing are all subfields of Genetics research. The study incorporates disciplines such as Evolutionary biology and Metagenomics in addition to Genome.

His Metagenomics research incorporates elements of Microbiome, Phylogenetics and Prochlorococcus. His Microbiology research extends to Gene, which is thematically connected. His primary area of study in Genomics is in the field of Comparative genomics.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (58.37%)
  • Genome (49.39%)
  • Gene (30.20%)

  • Genetics (58.37%)
  • Genome (49.39%)
  • Gene (30.20%)

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

J. Craig Venter mainly focuses on Genetics, Genome, Gene, Computational biology and Metabolome. In his papers, J. Craig Venter integrates diverse fields, such as Genetics and Genome-wide association study. A large part of his Genome studies is devoted to Genomics.

His study in Gene is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Genetic diversity and Microbiology. His Computational biology study incorporates themes from Cluster analysis, Human genome and DNA sequencing. His Metabolome research integrates issues from Microbiome, Body mass index and Methanobrevibacter smithii.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Gut Microbiome-Based Metagenomic Signature for Non-invasive Detection of Advanced Fibrosis in Human Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (343 citations)
  • Whole-genome sequencing identifies common-to-rare variants associated with human blood metabolites (172 citations)
  • The blood DNA virome in 8,000 humans (133 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Genome

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Genetics, Human genome, Gene, Genome and Computational biology. Genetic variation, Whole genome sequencing, Human virome, Virus and Oncovirus are the subjects of his Genetics studies. J. Craig Venter has included themes like Microbial metabolism, Metagenomics, Personalized medicine and Metabolic pathway, Metabolism in his Whole genome sequencing study.

The concepts of his Human genome study are interwoven with issues in Paternal Inheritance, Microsatellite, Major histocompatibility complex and Transplantation. His studies in Genome integrate themes in fields like Contrast, Genetic risk, Disease, Allele frequency and Data sequences. His Computational biology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Biometrics, DNA sequencing and Genomics.
