Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • Internal medicine

Janey L. Wiggs mostly deals with Glaucoma, Genetics, Open angle glaucoma, Genome-wide association study and Intraocular pressure. Her work in Glaucoma covers topics such as Bioinformatics which are related to areas like Disease. Her biological study deals with issues like Retinal ganglion, which deal with fields such as Visual field, Optic neuropathy, Nerve fiber layer and Allele frequency.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Odds ratio, Polymorphism, Confidence interval, Genetic association and Environmental exposure in addition to Genome-wide association study. Her Intraocular pressure research incorporates elements of Wild type and Hypopigmentation. Her Gene study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Osteosarcoma and Cancer.

Her most cited work include:

  • Detectable clonal mosaicism from birth to old age and its relationship to cancer (389 citations)
  • Mutations in genes encoding melanosomal proteins cause pigmentary glaucoma in DBA/2J mice. (364 citations)
  • A simple procedure for resolution of Escherichia coli RNA polymerase holoenzyme from core polymerase. (252 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Glaucoma, Genetics, Open angle glaucoma, Ophthalmology and Genome-wide association study. Janey L. Wiggs has included themes like Intraocular pressure, Bioinformatics, Internal medicine, Disease and Optic nerve in her Glaucoma study. Her study in Gene, Single-nucleotide polymorphism, Locus, Pedigree chart and Genotype is carried out as part of her Genetics studies.

Her Open angle glaucoma research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Computational biology and Case-control study. Her Optometry research extends to the thematically linked field of Ophthalmology. Her Genome-wide association study study combines topics in areas such as Odds ratio, Meta-analysis, Genetic association and Candidate gene.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Glaucoma (42.51%)
  • Genetics (38.24%)
  • Open angle glaucoma (32.35%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Glaucoma (42.51%)
  • Open angle glaucoma (32.35%)
  • Genome-wide association study (16.58%)

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

Janey L. Wiggs focuses on Glaucoma, Open angle glaucoma, Genome-wide association study, Genetics and Ophthalmology. Her studies in Glaucoma integrate themes in fields like Odds ratio, Internal medicine, Intraocular pressure, Bioinformatics and Optic nerve. Her Intraocular pressure study incorporates themes from Biobank, Optic disk and Confidence interval.

The various areas that Janey L. Wiggs examines in her Open angle glaucoma study include Retinal, Genetic risk, Blood pressure and Genotype. Her Genome-wide association study research includes themes of Meta-analysis, Disease, Genetic association, Computational biology and Human genetics. Her Ophthalmology study deals with Heritability intersecting with Genetic correlation and Linkage disequilibrium.

Between 2016 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Genetics of glaucoma. (106 citations)
  • Genome-wide analyses identify 68 new loci associated with intraocular pressure and improve risk prediction for primary open-angle glaucoma. (93 citations)
  • New insights into the genetics of primary open-angle glaucoma based on meta-analyses of intraocular pressure and optic disc characteristics (80 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Genetics

Glaucoma, Open angle glaucoma, Genome-wide association study, Internal medicine and Genetics are her primary areas of study. Her Glaucoma research is within the category of Ophthalmology. Her Open angle glaucoma study also includes

  • Disease together with Risk factor,
  • Bioinformatics together with Genetic variation.

Her study in Genome-wide association study is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both SNP, Case-control study, Genetic association and Candidate gene. Her Internal medicine research includes elements of Trabeculectomy, Myocilin and Genetic model. Her research ties Low Tension Glaucoma and Genetics together.
