Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Gene expression

Jian-Kang Zhu spends much of his time researching Arabidopsis, Genetics, Biochemistry, Cell biology and Mutant. His Arabidopsis research incorporates themes from Arabidopsis thaliana, Abscisic acid, Botany, Transcription factor and Wild type. His work in Abscisic acid addresses issues such as Pyrabactin, which are connected to fields such as Receptor and Plasma protein binding.

His Gene, Regulation of gene expression, Gene expression, Genome editing and Abiotic stress study are his primary interests in Genetics. The study incorporates disciplines such as Transgene, Osmotic shock, Transcriptional regulation, RNA-Directed DNA Methylation and DNA demethylation in addition to Cell biology. His work investigates the relationship between Mutant and topics such as Molecular biology that intersect with problems in Messenger RNA, DNA methylation and MRNA cleavage.

His most cited work include:

  • Salt and drought stress signal transduction in plants (4209 citations)
  • Plant cellular and molecular responses to high salinity. (3633 citations)
  • Plant salt tolerance (2688 citations)

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

Jian-Kang Zhu mainly focuses on Arabidopsis, Genetics, Cell biology, Gene and Mutant. His Arabidopsis study is concerned with the larger field of Biochemistry. His study on Cell biology also encompasses disciplines like

  • Transcription factor that connect with fields like Transcription,
  • Botany that connect with fields like Salinity.

Jian-Kang Zhu regularly ties together related areas like Molecular biology in his Mutant studies. He works mostly in the field of DNA methylation, limiting it down to concerns involving Epigenetics and, occasionally, Chromatin. His Abscisic acid study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Phosphatase, Osmotic shock, Receptor, Signal transduction and Abiotic stress.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Arabidopsis (55.78%)
  • Genetics (55.38%)
  • Cell biology (49.93%)

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

  • Cell biology (49.93%)
  • Arabidopsis (55.78%)
  • Gene (37.72%)

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

Jian-Kang Zhu mostly deals with Cell biology, Arabidopsis, Gene, DNA methylation and Mutant. His Cell biology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Abscisic acid, Transcription factor, Histone, Regulation of gene expression and Gene silencing. Jian-Kang Zhu has researched Arabidopsis in several fields, including Arabidopsis thaliana, Cell wall organization, RNA-Directed DNA Methylation, Translation and Transcription.

His Gene study is focused on Genetics in general. His DNA methylation research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Methylation, DNA and Epigenetics, Demethylase. His study on Mutant is covered under Biochemistry.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Abscisic acid dynamics, signaling, and functions in plants (110 citations)
  • Abscisic acid dynamics, signaling, and functions in plants (110 citations)
  • Expanding the base editing scope in rice by using Cas9 variants. (86 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Gene expression

His main research concerns Gene, Cell biology, Computational biology, Genome editing and DNA. Gene is a subfield of Genetics that Jian-Kang Zhu studies. The concepts of his Cell biology study are interwoven with issues in Chromatin, Regulation of gene expression and Abscisic acid.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Cas9 and Genome engineering in addition to Computational biology. His Genome editing research incorporates themes from Agriculture and Crop. In his study, Epigenetics, Methylation, Demethylase and Histone is inextricably linked to DNA methylation, which falls within the broad field of DNA.
