Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Bacteria
  • Gene
  • Internal medicine

His primary areas of investigation include Microbiology, Microbiome, Metagenomics, Immunology and Lactobacillus reuteri. His Microbiology study incorporates themes from Bacteria, Gastrointestinal tract and Escherichia coli. The study incorporates disciplines such as Evolutionary biology, Gut flora and Disease in addition to Microbiome.

The Human Microbiome Project research he does as part of his general Metagenomics study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as Human health, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science. His Immunology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Macrophage, Function and Lactobacillus. His Lactobacillus reuteri study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Tumor necrosis factor alpha, Biological activity, Protein kinase A and Histidine.

His most cited work include:

  • Structure, function and diversity of the healthy human microbiome (6128 citations)
  • A framework for human microbiome research (1583 citations)
  • Genomic fingerprinting of bacteria using repetitive sequence-based polymerase chain reaction (1385 citations)

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

James Versalovic focuses on Microbiology, Microbiome, Immunology, Lactobacillus reuteri and Internal medicine. In his study, Anti-inflammatory and Antimicrobial is inextricably linked to Probiotic, which falls within the broad field of Microbiology. The Microbiome study combines topics in areas such as Gut flora, Disease and Metagenomics.

His Metagenomics research includes elements of Computational biology, Human microbiome and Bioinformatics. As part of one scientific family, James Versalovic deals mainly with the area of Immunology, narrowing it down to issues related to the Inflammatory bowel disease, and often Colitis. His Lactobacillus reuteri research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Proinflammatory cytokine, Biochemistry, Histidine decarboxylase and Histamine.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Microbiology (56.40%)
  • Microbiome (31.10%)
  • Immunology (25.58%)

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

  • Microbiology (56.40%)
  • Microbiome (31.10%)
  • Bifidobacterium dentium (6.98%)

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

His primary areas of study are Microbiology, Microbiome, Bifidobacterium dentium, Mucus and Mucin. His study in the fields of Clostridium difficile under the domain of Microbiology overlaps with other disciplines such as Fusobacterium nucleatum. His studies in Microbiome integrate themes in fields like Cytokine, Immunology, Inflammatory bowel disease and Gastrointestinal tract.

His study in the field of Gastrointestinal Microbiome and Interferon also crosses realms of Fructan. His Bifidobacterium dentium study combines topics in areas such as Molecular biology, Serotonergic and Goblet cell. The concepts of his Mucus study are interwoven with issues in Akkermansia and Biofilm.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Visualization of microbes by 16S in situ hybridization in term and preterm placentas without intraamniotic infection. (42 citations)
  • Bifidobacterium dentium Fortifies the Intestinal Mucus Layer via Autophagy and Calcium Signaling Pathways. (33 citations)
  • Bifidobacterium dentium Fortifies the Intestinal Mucus Layer via Autophagy and Calcium Signaling Pathways. (33 citations)

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

  • Bacteria
  • Gene
  • Internal medicine

His main research concerns Microbiome, Cell biology, Epithelium, Gut flora and Immunology. His studies deal with areas such as Cytokine, Lipopolysaccharide, Intestinal epithelium, Immune system and Lipoteichoic acid as well as Microbiome. His study in Cell biology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Secretion, Adenosine and Paracrine signalling.

His Epithelium research integrates issues from Intestinal Disorder, Bifidobacterium dentium, Mucus and Microbiology. James Versalovic has included themes like Cerebellum, Hippocampus and Microglia in his Gut flora study. He is studying Gastrointestinal Microbiome, which is a component of Immunology.
