Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • DNA

Lactococcus lactis, Biochemistry, Genetics, Gene and Molecular biology are his primary areas of study. His Lactococcus lactis research includes themes of Plasmid, Sequence alignment, Bacteriocin, Escherichia coli and Bacillus subtilis. His Plasmid research includes elements of Molecular cloning, Cloning vector and Microbiology.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Bacteria and Lactic acid in addition to Biochemistry. His Bacteria study incorporates themes from Stringent response and Biotechnology. Jan Kok interconnects Tyrosine, Origin of replication, Biosynthesis, Multiple cloning site and Operon in the investigation of issues within Molecular biology.

His most cited work include:

  • LysM, a widely distributed protein motif for binding to (peptido)glycans (433 citations)
  • Complete Genome Sequence of the Prototype Lactic Acid Bacterium Lactococcus lactis subsp. cremoris MG1363 (352 citations)
  • Construction of Plasmid Cloning Vectors for Lactic Streptococci Which Also Replicate in Bacillus subtilis and Escherichia coli (322 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Lactococcus lactis, Biochemistry, Gene, Genetics and Microbiology. His research in Lactococcus lactis intersects with topics in Nucleic acid sequence, Plasmid, Bacteriocin, Escherichia coli and Molecular biology. His Plasmid research integrates issues from Cloning vector and Recombinant DNA.

Jan Kok focuses mostly in the field of Bacteriocin, narrowing it down to topics relating to Secretion and, in certain cases, Cell biology. His Molecular biology research incorporates themes from Molecular cloning, Primer extension and Bacillus subtilis. His Biochemistry study frequently draws connections between related disciplines such as Bacteria.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Lactococcus lactis (59.34%)

  • Gene (28.61%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2009-2021)?

  • Lactococcus lactis (59.34%)
  • Biochemistry (45.78%)
  • Bacteria (19.88%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Lactococcus lactis, Biochemistry, Bacteria, Gene and Genetics. His Lactococcus lactis research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Plasmid, Fermentation, Food science, Regulon and Microbiology. In his research on the topic of Microbiology, Operon and Enterococcus is strongly related with Enterococcus faecalis.

His Bacteria research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Cell and Computational biology. His Amino acid study combines topics in areas such as Molecular biology and Tyrosine, Tyrosine decarboxylase, Tyramine. His research integrates issues of Bacteriophage and Nucleic acid sequence in his study of Genome.

Between 2009 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • BAGEL3: Automated identification of genes encoding bacteriocins and (non-)bactericidal posttranslationally modified peptides. (320 citations)
  • The Relationship among Tyrosine Decarboxylase and Agmatine Deiminase Pathways in Enterococcus faecalis (227 citations)
  • Stress Physiology of Lactic Acid Bacteria (205 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • DNA

His primary areas of study are Lactococcus lactis, Biochemistry, Bacteria, Genetics and Microbiology. His Lactococcus lactis study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Nucleic acid sequence, Gene, Lactose, Point mutation and Bacillus subtilis. Peptidoglycan, Cell wall, Enzyme, Lysin and Escherichia coli are the subjects of his Biochemistry studies.

Jan Kok combines subjects such as Stringent response and Biotechnology with his study of Bacteria. His work deals with themes such as Plasmid, Enterococcus faecalis, Tagatose and Virulence, which intersect with Microbiology. His DNA sequencing study also includes fields such as

  • Prokaryote that connect with fields like Bacterial genome size,
  • Open reading frame that connect with fields like Bacteriocin.
