2017 - Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS)
Jianzhi Zhang mostly deals with Genetics, Gene, Gene duplication, Evolutionary biology and Genome. Genetics is frequently linked to Natural selection in his study. His research investigates the connection between Gene duplication and topics such as Functional divergence that intersect with problems in Neofunctionalization and Subfunctionalization.
His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Adaptive evolution, Protein superfamily, Anatomy and Primate. In his study, Taste receptor and Umami is inextricably linked to Vertebrate, which falls within the broad field of Genome. His research on Molecular evolution also deals with topics like
His main research concerns Genetics, Gene, Evolutionary biology, Genome and Gene duplication. Much of his study explores Genetics relationship to Natural selection. As part of his studies on Gene, Jianzhi Zhang often connects relevant areas like Function.
His work investigates the relationship between Evolutionary biology and topics such as Vomeronasal organ that intersect with problems in Pheromone, Sex pheromone and Anatomy. His research in Gene duplication focuses on subjects like Gene cluster, which are connected to Gene dosage. Jianzhi Zhang has researched Nonsynonymous substitution in several fields, including Synonymous substitution and Negative selection.
Jianzhi Zhang mainly focuses on Evolutionary biology, Gene, Natural selection, Genetics and Genome. His study in Evolutionary biology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Pleiotropy, Mutation, Adaptation, Experimental evolution and Mechanism. His work on Computational biology expands to the thematically related Gene.
His Natural selection research integrates issues from Proteome, Genetic drift, Mutation rate and Eukaryotic translation. In his work, he performs multidisciplinary research in Genetics and Correlation. His Genome research incorporates themes from Amino acid, Yeast, Chromatin, Phylogenetics and DNA sequencing.
His primary areas of study are Evolutionary biology, Gene, Genetics, Gene expression and Nonsynonymous substitution. His Evolutionary biology study combines topics in areas such as Population growth, Proteome, Experimental evolution and Gene–environment interaction. His study in Mutation Accumulation, Mutation rate, Point mutation, Molecular clock and Neutral theory of molecular evolution falls within the category of Genetics.
His work on Transcriptome, Gene expression level and Transcriptional regulation as part of general Gene expression research is often related to Transcription start, thus linking different fields of science. His Nonsynonymous substitution study incorporates themes from Pleiotropy, Fitness effects, Synonymous substitution, Positive selection and Adaptation. His Adaptation research includes elements of RNA, RNA editing, Molecular evolution, Inosine and Neural tissues.
