Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Bacteria
  • Gene
  • Enzyme

Her primary areas of study are Metagenomics, Genome, Phylogenetics, Ecology and Mineralogy. The Metagenomics study combines topics in areas such as Colonization, Microbiology, Archaea, Computational biology and Bacterial phyla. Her Genome study is concerned with Genetics in general.

Her Phylogenetics research focuses on Ribosomal RNA and how it connects with Intron, Ribosomal protein and Bacterial genetics. In Ecology, Jillian F. Banfield works on issues like Microbial population biology, which are connected to Geomicrobiology. Her Mineralogy research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Chemical physics and Nanoparticle, Rutile, Chemical engineering, Nanocrystalline material.

Her most cited work include:

  • Imperfect Oriented Attachment: Dislocation Generation in Defect-Free Nanocrystals (1844 citations)
  • Community structure and metabolism through reconstruction of microbial genomes from the environment (1806 citations)
  • Aggregation-Based Crystal Growth and Microstructure Development in Natural Iron Oxyhydroxide Biomineralization Products (1347 citations)

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

Jillian F. Banfield mainly focuses on Metagenomics, Genome, Ecology, Genetics and Bacteria. Her study focuses on the intersection of Metagenomics and fields such as Archaea with connections in the field of Microorganism. Her study looks at the intersection of Genome and topics like Phylogenetics with Phylogenetic tree.

Her work in Ecology addresses issues such as Microbial population biology, which are connected to fields such as Environmental chemistry. Her work is connected to CRISPR and Genomics, as a part of Genetics. Her work carried out in the field of Bacteria brings together such families of science as Biochemistry and Microbiology.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Metagenomics (31.05%)
  • Genome (27.55%)
  • Ecology (19.39%)

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

  • Genome (27.55%)
  • Metagenomics (31.05%)
  • Gene (9.77%)

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

Her primary areas of investigation include Genome, Metagenomics, Gene, Genetics and Bacteria. Her studies deal with areas such as Microbiome, Nucleic acid, Computational biology and Function as well as Genome. Her study in Metagenomics is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Ecology, Strain, Phylogenetics, Archaea and Bacterial genome size.

As a part of the same scientific study, Jillian F. Banfield usually deals with the Gene, concentrating on Evolutionary biology and frequently concerns with Phylum, Clade, Extracellular transport, Homologous recombination and Ribosomal protein. As a part of the same scientific family, she mostly works in the field of Genetics, focusing on Genetic diversity and, on occasion, Genetic variation. Her Bacteria research includes themes of Botany and Bioreactor.

Between 2018 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Clades of huge phages from across Earth’s ecosystems (91 citations)
  • Megaphages infect Prevotella and variants are widespread in gut microbiomes (60 citations)
  • CRISPR-CasΦ from huge phages is a hypercompact genome editor. (59 citations)

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

  • Bacteria
  • Gene
  • Enzyme

Jillian F. Banfield mostly deals with Genome, Metagenomics, Genetics, Phylogenetics and Gene. Her Genome research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Microbiome, Microbial genetics, Computational biology and Evolutionary biology. Jillian F. Banfield interconnects Ecology, Anatoxin-a, Bacterial genome size, Oscillatoriales and Betaproteobacteria in the investigation of issues within Metagenomics.

Her research in Ecology intersects with topics in Microorganism, Phylum, Microbial mat and Burkholderiales. Her research integrates issues of Electron transport chain and Genetic diversity in her study of Genetics. Jillian F. Banfield combines subjects such as Archaea and Phylogenetic tree with her study of Phylogenetics.
