Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Enzyme
  • Gene
  • Metabolism

Jack T. Pronk spends much of his time researching Biochemistry, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Yeast, Chemostat and Fermentation. Xylose, Ethanol fermentation, Pyruvate decarboxylase, Glycerol-3-phosphate dehydrogenase and Metabolism are among the areas of Biochemistry where the researcher is concentrating his efforts. The Saccharomyces cerevisiae study combines topics in areas such as Transcriptome, Protein degradation and Citric acid cycle, Enzyme.

Jack T. Pronk has included themes like Gene, Metabolic engineering, Glycolysis, Auxotrophy and Sugar in his Yeast study. His Chemostat research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Carbohydrate metabolism, DNA microarray, Transcription, Nutrient and Maltose. His work carried out in the field of Fermentation brings together such families of science as Ethanol metabolism, Ethanol and Acetic acid.

His most cited work include:

  • The Ehrlich Pathway for Fusel Alcohol Production : a Century of Research on Saccharomyces cerevisiae Metabolism (831 citations)
  • Pyruvate Metabolism in Saccharomyces cerevisiae (643 citations)
  • Alcoholic fermentation of carbon sources in biomass hydrolysates by Saccharomyces cerevisiae : current status (465 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Biochemistry, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Yeast, Chemostat and Fermentation. His Biochemistry study focuses mostly on Metabolic engineering, Metabolism, Pyruvate decarboxylase, Ethanol fermentation and Enzyme. His Pyruvate decarboxylase study incorporates themes from Pyruvate decarboxylation, Pyruvate dehydrogenase complex and Carboxy-lyases.

His Saccharomyces cerevisiae research incorporates elements of Anaerobic exercise, Transcriptome and Mutant. His Yeast study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Maltose, Sucrose, Ethanol fuel, Bioreactor and Sugar. His study looks at the intersection of Chemostat and topics like Biomass with Yield.

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Saccharomyces cerevisiae (50.45%)
  • Biochemistry (68.06%)
  • Yeast (37.31%)

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

His main research concerns Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Biochemistry, Yeast, Genetics and Genome. His Saccharomyces cerevisiae research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Food science, Pyridoxine, Biomass, Anaerobic exercise and Pantothenic acid. His study in Yeast is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Fermentation, Chemostat, Bioreactor and Sucrose.

His work on Xylose is typically connected to Acetogenesis as part of general Fermentation study, connecting several disciplines of science. While the research belongs to areas of Genetics, Jack T. Pronk spends his time largely on the problem of Hybrid, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Mating, Ploidy and Cell sorting. His studies deal with areas such as Chromosome, Classical genetics and Loss of heterozygosity as well as Genome.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Genome editing in Kluyveromyces and Ogataea yeasts using a broad-host-range Cas9/gRNA co-expression plasmid (75 citations)
  • Under pressure: evolutionary engineering of yeast strains for improved performance in fuels and chemicals production (70 citations)
  • Connecting central carbon and aromatic amino acid metabolisms to improve de novo 2-phenylethanol production in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. (28 citations)
