Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • DNA

Her primary scientific interests are in Genetics, Denisovan, Genome, Evolutionary biology and Neanderthal. Her studies link Ancient DNA with Genetics. Her study in Denisovan is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Hominidae, Neanderthal genome project and Mitochondrial DNA.

Her research in Neanderthal genome project tackles topics such as Archaic humans which are related to areas like Anatomically modern human, Recent African origin of modern humans and Gene flow. Her research in Genome is mostly focused on Human genome. Her work in Evolutionary biology addresses subjects such as Human evolutionary genetics, which are connected to disciplines such as Ancestor and Mutation rate.

Her most cited work include:

  • The Transcriptional Landscape of the Mammalian Genome (2876 citations)
  • A Draft Sequence of the Neandertal Genome (2666 citations)
  • The complete genome sequence of a Neanderthal from the Altai Mountains (1322 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Genetics, Evolutionary biology, Genome, Denisovan and Gene. Her studies deal with areas such as Lineage, Gene flow, Genetic diversity, DNA and Introgression as well as Evolutionary biology. Her Genome research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Phylogenetics and Human genetics.

She has researched Denisovan in several fields, including Cave, Mitochondrial DNA, Ancient DNA, Neanderthal and Archaic humans. Her work deals with themes such as Pleistocene, Neanderthal genome project and Human evolutionary genetics, which intersect with Neanderthal. Her Archaic humans study incorporates themes from Recent African origin of modern humans and Anatomically modern human.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (38.22%)
  • Evolutionary biology (32.48%)
  • Genome (27.39%)

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

  • Evolutionary biology (32.48%)
  • Denisovan (21.66%)
  • Neanderthal (14.01%)

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

Janet Kelso spends much of her time researching Evolutionary biology, Denisovan, Neanderthal, Cave and Genome. Her Evolutionary biology research includes themes of Lineage, Introgression, Allele and Gene flow, Genetic variation. Her Lineage research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Major histocompatibility complex and Archaic humans.

Janet Kelso usually deals with Denisovan and limits it to topics linked to Mitochondrial DNA and Ancient DNA, DNA sequencing and Neanderthal genome project. Her Neanderthal research incorporates themes from Amino acid, Assemblage, Electrophysiology and Early human migrations. Her Cave study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Human evolution, Human migration, Pleistocene and East Asia.

Between 2018 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Limits of long-term selection against Neandertal introgression. (69 citations)
  • Age estimates for hominin fossils and the onset of the Upper Palaeolithic at Denisova Cave (62 citations)
  • Neandertal Introgression Sheds Light on Modern Human Endocranial Globularity. (47 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Genetics

Janet Kelso mainly investigates Evolutionary biology, Cave, Denisovan, Nuclear DNA and Genome. The various areas that Janet Kelso examines in her Evolutionary biology study include Genomics, Endocranium, Brain tissue and Introgression. The Denisovan study combines topics in areas such as Radiocarbon dating, Radiometric dating, Pleistocene, Hominidae and Human evolution.

Janet Kelso has researched Hominidae in several fields, including Neanderthal and Archaeology. Her Nuclear DNA research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Crania, Lineage, Most recent common ancestor and Neanderthal genome project. Her study in the fields of Negative selection under the domain of Genome overlaps with other disciplines such as Term.
