Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Eukaryote
  • Genetics

Joel B. Dacks mainly investigates Genetics, Evolutionary biology, Phylogenetics, Genome and Gene. When carried out as part of a general Genetics research project, his work on Eukaryote and Eukaryotic cell is frequently linked to work in Extant taxon and Molecular paleontology, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study. His study in Evolutionary biology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Histone H1, Lineage, Evolution of sexual reproduction and Chromalveolata.

Joel B. Dacks has included themes like Sequence alignment, Gene family, Phylogenetic tree, Rab and Endomembrane system in his Phylogenetics study. His work in the fields of Genome, such as Horizontal gene transfer, intersects with other areas such as Deep sea, Coccolithophore and Haptophyte. His Gene research incorporates elements of Trichomonas vaginalis and Trichomonas Infection.

His most cited work include:

  • Draft genome sequence of the sexually transmitted pathogen Trichomonas vaginalis (654 citations)
  • Phylogenomic analyses support the monophyly of Excavata and resolve relationships among eukaryotic “supergroups” (398 citations)
  • The Genome of Naegleria gruberi Illuminates Early Eukaryotic Versatility (365 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Cell biology, Evolutionary biology, Phylogenetics, Genetics and Genome. Many of his studies involve connections with topics such as Endocytic cycle and Cell biology. Within one scientific family, Joel B. Dacks focuses on topics pertaining to Endosymbiosis under Evolutionary biology, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Dinoflagellate.

His research on Phylogenetics also deals with topics like

  • Ribosomal RNA and Ecology most often made with reference to Phylogenetic tree,
  • GTPase together with Protein domain. His Genetics study focuses mostly on Gene, Naegleria gruberi, Eukaryote, Comparative genomics and Syntaxin. Joel B. Dacks combines subjects such as Transcriptome, Protist, Computational biology and Model organism with his study of Genome.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Cell biology (40.74%)
  • Evolutionary biology (38.89%)
  • Phylogenetics (28.40%)

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

  • Evolutionary biology (38.89%)
  • Endomembrane system (21.60%)
  • Genome (28.40%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Evolutionary biology, Endomembrane system, Genome, Gene and Transcriptome. His Evolutionary biology research incorporates themes from Guanine nucleotide exchange factor, GTPase, Adaptor Protein Complex Subunits and Phylogenetics, Lineage. His Endomembrane system study combines topics in areas such as Monocercomonoides, Mitochondrion and Organelle.

His Genome research entails a greater understanding of Genetics. His work in Gene addresses subjects such as Computational biology, which are connected to disciplines such as Nuclear gene, Proteome, Coding region and Cell signaling. His work carried out in the field of Transcriptome brings together such families of science as Naegleria gruberi, Pathogen, Synteny and Model organism.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • ARF GTPases and their GEFs and GAPs: concepts and challenges (61 citations)
  • Transcriptome, proteome and draft genome of Euglena gracilis (37 citations)
  • Transcriptome, proteome and draft genome of Euglena gracilis (37 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Eukaryote
  • Genetics

Joel B. Dacks focuses on Genome, Transcriptome, Gene, Computational biology and Pathogen. The study incorporates disciplines such as Peroxisome and Mitochondrion, Cell biology in addition to Genome. His work on Nuclear gene, Coding region and Horizontal gene transfer as part of general Gene research is often related to Euglena gracilis, thus linking different fields of science.

His studies deal with areas such as Cell, Cell signaling, GTPase, Protein family and A protein as well as Computational biology. He combines subjects such as Naegleria gruberi, Synteny and Model organism with his study of Pathogen. His Model organism research is under the purview of Genetics.
