Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Genetics

His primary scientific interests are in Genetics, Gene, Gene dosage, Centromere and Genome. Chromosome, Gene expression, Ploidy, Quantitative trait locus and Regulation of gene expression are among the areas of Genetics where the researcher is concentrating his efforts. James A. Birchler studied Chromosome and Molecular biology that intersect with Structural gene.

His Gene dosage research incorporates themes from Copy-number variation, Polyploid, Dosage compensation, Interactome and Gene duplication. The various areas that James A. Birchler examines in his Centromere study include Sequence analysis, Meiosis, B chromosome and Retrotransposon. His Genome research integrates issues from Mutation and Heterochromatin.

His most cited work include:

  • RNAi-mediated pathways in the nucleus (751 citations)
  • Understanding mechanisms of novel gene expression in polyploids. (714 citations)
  • Heterochromatic Silencing and HP1 Localization in Drosophila Are Dependent on the RNAi Machinery (636 citations)

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

His main research concerns Genetics, Gene, Chromosome, Centromere and Genome. His work in Genetics addresses subjects such as Molecular biology, which are connected to disciplines such as Locus. His Chromosome study combines topics in areas such as Telomere, Meiosis and Chromosomal translocation.

His studies deal with areas such as DNA, Human artificial chromosome, Retrotransposon, Epigenetics and Kinetochore as well as Centromere. His study explores the link between Ploidy and topics such as Heterosis that cross with problems in Inbred strain. James A. Birchler has researched Gene dosage in several fields, including Gene duplication and Copy-number variation.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (81.55%)
  • Gene (29.45%)
  • Chromosome (26.86%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Genetics (81.55%)
  • Chromosome (26.86%)
  • Centromere (21.68%)

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

James A. Birchler focuses on Genetics, Chromosome, Centromere, Gene and Genome. Ploidy, Phenotype, B chromosome, Epigenetics and Transposable element are the primary areas of interest in his Genetics study. James A. Birchler combines subjects such as Telomere, Meiosis and Synthetic biology with his study of Chromosome.

His Centromere study also includes fields such as

  • Chromosome segregation that connect with fields like Nucleosome, Anaphase, DNA sequencing and Cell biology,
  • Chromatin that intertwine with fields like Histone. In general Gene study, his work on Gene expression, Regulation of gene expression, DNA methylation and Reference genome often relates to the realm of Indel, thereby connecting several areas of interest. His research in Genome intersects with topics in genomic DNA, X chromosome and CRISPR.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Efficient Targeted Genome Modification in Maize Using CRISPR/Cas9 System. (82 citations)
  • High‐efficiency genome editing using a dmc1 promoter‐controlled CRISPR/Cas9 system in maize (55 citations)
  • A Kinesin-14 Motor Activates Neocentromeres to Promote Meiotic Drive in Maize. (53 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Genetics

James A. Birchler mainly investigates Genetics, Gene, Genome, Centromere and Chromosome. His study involves Phenotype, Mutation, Mutant, Ploidy and Epigenetics, a branch of Genetics. His work on DNA methylation and Genome editing as part of his general Gene study is frequently connected to Indel, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science.

His Genome research incorporates elements of Evolutionary biology, X chromosome, Dosage compensation and CRISPR. His study looks at the relationship between Centromere and fields such as Chromatin, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems. His studies in Chromosome integrate themes in fields like Molecular biology and Meiosis.
