Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Bacteria
  • Gene
  • Internal medicine

His primary areas of study are Gut flora, Microbiome, Microbiology, Genetics and Ecology. His research integrates issues of Zoology, Endocrinology, Feces and Internal medicine in his study of Gut flora. His Feces study incorporates themes from Biochemistry, Metabolism and Resistant starch.

His Microbiome research includes themes of Pyrosequencing, Microbial ecology, Colonization and Metagenomics. His Microbiology study combines topics in areas such as Probiotic, Bifidobacterium, Lactobacillus, Host and Flagellin. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Human feces and Leuconostoc mesenteroides.

His most cited work include:

  • Individuality in gut microbiota composition is a complex polygenic trait shaped by multiple environmental and host genetic factors (853 citations)
  • Detection of Lactobacillus, Pediococcus, Leuconostoc, and Weissella Species in Human Feces by Using Group-Specific PCR Primers and Denaturing Gradient Gel Electrophoresis (691 citations)
  • The microbiome of uncontacted Amerindians (460 citations)

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

Jens Walter mainly investigates Gut flora, Microbiology, Lactobacillus reuteri, Microbiome and Food science. To a larger extent, Jens Walter studies Biochemistry with the aim of understanding Gut flora. He has researched Microbiology in several fields, including Probiotic, Lactobacillus, Bacteria, Gastrointestinal tract and Host.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Mutant, Gene and Biofilm in addition to Lactobacillus reuteri. The various areas that Jens Walter examines in his Microbiome study include Ecology, Microbial ecology, Propionate and Metagenomics. His studies deal with areas such as Temperature gradient gel electrophoresis and Yeast as well as Food science.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Gut flora (51.38%)
  • Microbiology (44.20%)
  • Lactobacillus reuteri (27.62%)

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

  • Gut flora (51.38%)
  • Microbiome (25.97%)
  • Prebiotic (16.02%)

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

Jens Walter mainly focuses on Gut flora, Microbiome, Prebiotic, Microbiology and Feces. His Gut flora research is within the category of Biochemistry. His research in Microbiome tackles topics such as Propionate which are related to areas like Starch, Blautia obeum, Arabinoxylan and Bifidobacterium longum.

Jens Walter interconnects Human gut and Fructan in the investigation of issues within Prebiotic. His Microbiology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in 16S ribosomal RNA, Inflammatory bowel disease, Subspecies, Vertebrate and Phylogenetics. His research investigates the connection between Feces and topics such as Obesity that intersect with issues in Physiology.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • A taxonomic note on the genus Lactobacillus: Description of 23 novel genera, emended description of the genus Lactobacillus Beijerinck 1901, and union of Lactobacillaceae and Leuconostocaceae. (358 citations)
  • Daily Sampling Reveals Personalized Diet-Microbiome Associations in Humans (156 citations)
  • Establishing or Exaggerating Causality for the Gut Microbiome: Lessons from Human Microbiota-Associated Rodents. (104 citations)

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

  • Bacteria
  • Gene
  • Enzyme

His scientific interests lie mostly in Gut flora, Microbiome, Propionate, Butyrate and Bacteria. Jens Walter has included themes like Food choice, Dietary history and Environmental health in his Gut flora study. His Microbiome research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Obesity, Disease, Prebiotic and Metagenomics.

His Propionate study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Blautia obeum, Feces, Food science, Arabinoxylan and Bifidobacterium longum. His work deals with themes such as Lysogen, Enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli, Prophage and Microbiology, which intersect with Bacteria. His Lactobacillus reuteri study necessitates a more in-depth grasp of Genetics.
