Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Bacteria
  • Ecology
  • Gene

His main research concerns Metagenomics, Ecology, Microbiome, Biodiversity and Computational biology. His Metagenomics research incorporates elements of Bioinformatics, Ribosomal RNA, Phylogenetic diversity, Biome and Data science. His Ecology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Phylogenetics, Rare biosphere and Microbial population biology.

He has researched Computational biology in several fields, including Genetics, Pathway analysis, NCBI Taxonomy and DNA sequencing. His DNA sequencing research includes themes of Genome and Disease. His Amplicon study combines topics in areas such as Amplicon sequencing, Throughput and Illumina dye sequencing.

His most cited work include:

  • Ultra-high-throughput microbial community analysis on the Illumina HiSeq and MiSeq platforms (4683 citations)
  • Ultra-high-throughput microbial community analysis on the Illumina HiSeq and MiSeq platforms (4683 citations)
  • The minimum information about a genome sequence (MIGS) specification. (986 citations)

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

Jack A. Gilbert spends much of his time researching Ecology, Microbiome, Metagenomics, Microbial population biology and Genetics. Much of his study explores Ecology relationship to Microbial ecology. His study in Microbiome is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Disease, Data science and Earth Microbiome Project.

Jack A. Gilbert focuses mostly in the field of Metagenomics, narrowing it down to topics relating to Computational biology and, in certain cases, DNA sequencing. His Microbial population biology research incorporates themes from Abundance and Relative species abundance. His study focuses on the intersection of Genome and fields such as Microbiology with connections in the field of Gut flora.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (47.94%)
  • Microbiome (38.50%)
  • Metagenomics (36.28%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Microbiome (38.50%)
  • Immunology (6.05%)
  • Gut flora (10.62%)

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

Jack A. Gilbert mainly focuses on Microbiome, Immunology, Gut flora, Human microbiome and Ecology. His research in Microbiome intersects with topics in Zoology, Gammaproteobacteria, Disease, UniFrac and Computational biology. His multidisciplinary approach integrates Computational biology and Human health in his work.

He has included themes like Feces, Microbiology, Physiology and Lachnospiraceae in his Gut flora study. His work on Bacteroides fragilis is typically connected to Growth factor as part of general Microbiology study, connecting several disciplines of science. His research integrates issues of Microbial ecology and Microbial population biology in his study of Ecology.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • GABA-modulating bacteria of the human gut microbiota (183 citations)
  • GABA-modulating bacteria of the human gut microbiota (183 citations)
  • GABA-modulating bacteria of the human gut microbiota (183 citations)

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

  • Bacteria
  • Ecology
  • Gene

Jack A. Gilbert mostly deals with Microbiome, Ecology, Microbial ecology, Gut flora and Range. His Microbiome research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Amplicon sequencing, Computational biology and Metagenomics. His research in Ecology is mostly focused on Particulates.

The Microbial ecology study combines topics in areas such as Evolutionary biology, Acidobacteria, Earth Microbiome Project and Alpha diversity. While the research belongs to areas of Gut flora, Jack A. Gilbert spends his time largely on the problem of Microbiology, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Bacteria, Gene expression profiling, Microbial metabolism and Bacteroides. The various areas that he examines in his Range study include Agriculture, Pollution, Eutrophication and Microbial population biology.
