Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Law
  • China

James Cotton mainly investigates Genetics, Phylogenetics, Genome, Evolutionary biology and Gene. His Genetics research focuses on subjects like Nematode, which are linked to Parasitism. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Taxonomy and Conservation genetics.

His Genome study combines topics in areas such as Transcriptome, Lineage, Caenorhabditis elegans and Botany. His work carried out in the field of Evolutionary biology brings together such families of science as Prestin, Virology, Anatomy and Phylogenetic tree. His work in the fields of Viral phylodynamics overlaps with other areas such as Evolution of influenza, Influenza A virus, Reassortant Viruses and Reassortment.

His most cited work include:

  • New approaches for unravelling reassortment pathways (422 citations)
  • New approaches for unravelling reassortment pathways (422 citations)
  • Whole genome sequencing of multiple Leishmania donovani clinical isolates provides insights into population structure and mechanisms of drug resistance (305 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Genetics, Evolutionary biology, Genome, Political economy and Politics. His Genetics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Globodera rostochiensis and Leishmania. While the research belongs to areas of Evolutionary biology, James Cotton spends his time largely on the problem of Phylogenetics, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Phylogenetic tree.

His study on Genome is mostly dedicated to connecting different topics, such as Parasitism. The Political economy study combines topics in areas such as Democracy and International relations. His Politics research integrates issues from Development economics and Economic history.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (21.82%)
  • Evolutionary biology (19.09%)
  • Genome (16.36%)

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

  • Genetics (21.82%)
  • Genome (16.36%)
  • Evolutionary biology (19.09%)

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

His main research concerns Genetics, Genome, Evolutionary biology, Whole genome sequencing and Haemonchus contortus. His work deals with themes such as Genetic diversity and Leishmania, which intersect with Genetics. The various areas that he examines in his Genome study include Phylogenetic tree, Subgenus and Leishmania guyanensis.

His study deals with a combination of Evolutionary biology and Avian malaria. His studies deal with areas such as Livestock, Transcriptome and Gene, Candidate gene as well as Haemonchus contortus. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Pathogen and Mitochondrial fission.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Complete avian malaria parasite genomes reveal features associated with lineage-specific evolution in birds and mammals (46 citations)
  • A Genome Resequencing-Based Genetic Map Reveals the Recombination Landscape of an Outbred Parasitic Nematode in the Presence of Polyploidy and Polyandry. (36 citations)
  • Population genomic and evolutionary modelling analyses reveal a single major QTL for ivermectin drug resistance in the pathogenic nematode, Haemonchus contortus (28 citations)

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

  • Law
  • Gene
  • China

James Cotton mainly focuses on Genome, Genetics, Evolutionary biology, Genomics and Genetic diversity. His Genome study combines topics in areas such as Lineage specific, Drosophila melanogaster, Malaria and Human parasite. James Cotton has researched Evolutionary biology in several fields, including Nematode, Haemonchus contortus, Drug resistance and Candidate gene.

His work investigates the relationship between Genomics and topics such as Visceral leishmaniasis that intersect with problems in Chromosome. In his study, Dracunculus medinensis, Genetic architecture, Dracunculiasis, Zoology and Outbreak is strongly linked to Population genetics, which falls under the umbrella field of Genetic diversity. James Cotton interconnects Phylogenetic tree, Phylogenetics, Subgenus, Ploidy and Leishmania guyanensis in the investigation of issues within Copy-number variation.
