Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Genetics
  • Statistics
  • Population genetics

Jack J. Windig spends much of his time researching Animal science, Genetics, Dairy cattle, Genetic correlation and Herd. His Animal science study combines topics in areas such as Biotechnology and Yield. His Genetics study focuses on Breed in particular.

His work carried out in the field of Dairy cattle brings together such families of science as Veterinary medicine and Beef cattle. He performs integrative study on Genetic correlation and Udder in his works. He merges many fields, such as Herd and Somatic cell count, in his writings.

His most cited work include:

  • Genetic parameters for predicted methane production and potential for reducing enteric emissions through genomic selection. (137 citations)
  • Estimating Relatedness Between Individuals in General Populations With a Focus on Their Use in Conservation Programs (125 citations)
  • Influence of herd environment on health and fertility and their relationship with milk production. (121 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Genetics, Genetic diversity, Animal science, Inbreeding and Breed. His studies in Genetic diversity integrate themes in fields like Evolutionary biology and Genetic variation. His work on Dairy cattle and Milking as part of general Animal science study is frequently connected to Somatic cell count, Udder and Genomic selection, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them.

His Dairy cattle study also includes

  • Herd, which have a strong connection to Genetic correlation,
  • Energy balance most often made with reference to Biotechnology. His Inbreeding research incorporates elements of Population size and Animal breeding. His Breed research includes elements of Zoology, Livestock and Crossbreed.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (26.23%)
  • Genetic diversity (23.77%)
  • Animal science (21.31%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Inbreeding (18.85%)
  • Breed (18.85%)
  • Genetic diversity (23.77%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Inbreeding, Breed, Genetic diversity, Statistics and Breeding program. His Inbreeding research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Evolutionary biology, Population size and Animal science, Animal breeding. Many of his studies on Animal science involve topics that are commonly interrelated, such as Inbreeding depression.

Jack J. Windig has researched Breed in several fields, including Zoology, Livestock and Veterinary medicine. His work carried out in the field of Genetic diversity brings together such families of science as Germplasm and Genetic variation. His Dairy cattle research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Deleterious alleles and Fertility.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Trends in genome-wide and region-specific genetic diversity in the Dutch-Flemish Holstein–Friesian breeding program from 1986 to 2015 (24 citations)
  • Characterization of Genetic Diversity Conserved in the Gene Bank for Dutch Cattle Breeds (23 citations)
  • Inbreeding depression due to recent and ancient inbreeding in Dutch Holstein–Friesian dairy cattle (22 citations)

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

  • Genetics
  • Statistics
  • Population genetics

His main research concerns Breed, Inbreeding, Genetic diversity, Purebred and Statistics. His research investigates the link between Breed and topics such as Veterinary medicine that cross with problems in Genetic variation. His studies deal with areas such as Evolutionary biology, Fertility and Effective population size as well as Inbreeding.

His Genetic diversity study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Quantitative trait locus and Animal breeding. Jack J. Windig interconnects Dairy cattle and Animal science in the investigation of issues within Inbreeding depression. His work deals with themes such as Endangered species and Cline, which intersect with Genetics.
