Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Eukaryote
  • Genome

John M. Archibald mainly investigates Plastid, Genetics, Gene, Genome and Evolutionary biology. His Plastid research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Botany, Algae and Eukaryote. His work on Chlorarachniophyte, Bigelowiella natans and Chaperonin as part of general Genetics research is often related to Ratchet, thus linking different fields of science.

His work in Gene addresses issues such as Ecology, which are connected to fields such as Microorganism and Physiology. His Genome research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Sulfolobus, Gene duplication and Sulfolobus solfataricus. His Evolutionary biology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Phylogenetics, Phylogenetic tree and Genomics.

His most cited work include:

  • The Marine Microbial Eukaryote Transcriptome Sequencing Project (MMETSP): Illuminating the Functional Diversity of Eukaryotic Life in the Oceans through Transcriptome Sequencing (601 citations)
  • The Marine Microbial Eukaryote Transcriptome Sequencing Project (MMETSP): Illuminating the Functional Diversity of Eukaryotic Life in the Oceans through Transcriptome Sequencing (601 citations)
  • The puzzle of plastid evolution. (354 citations)

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

John M. Archibald spends much of his time researching Plastid, Genetics, Genome, Gene and Evolutionary biology. His work deals with themes such as Photosynthesis, Botany and Algae, which intersect with Plastid. His Genetics study frequently links to other fields, such as Cryptophyta.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Nucleomorph and Intron. His Evolutionary biology study incorporates themes from Phylogenomics, Protist, Comparative genomics and Organelle. The study incorporates disciplines such as Cell biology, Symbiogenesis, Eukaryote and Genomics in addition to Endosymbiosis.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Plastid (55.84%)
  • Genetics (50.25%)
  • Genome (45.69%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Genome (45.69%)
  • Plastid (55.84%)
  • Evolutionary biology (38.58%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Genome, Plastid, Evolutionary biology, Gene and Algae. His Genome study is concerned with the field of Genetics as a whole. His work in the fields of Genetics, such as Gene family and Intron, overlaps with other areas such as Blastocystis.

His Plastid study combines topics in areas such as Cyanobacteria, Photosynthesis, Botany and Genomics. His research in Evolutionary biology intersects with topics in Phylogenetic tree, Monophyly, Phylogenetics, Phylogenomics and Eukaryote. His work on Transcriptome, Mitochondrial DNA and Chlorarachniophyte as part of his general Gene study is frequently connected to Channelrhodopsin, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • 10KP: A phylodiverse genome sequencing plan. (94 citations)
  • Probing the evolution, ecology and physiology of marine protists using transcriptomics (94 citations)
  • Probing the evolution, ecology and physiology of marine protists using transcriptomics (94 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Eukaryote
  • DNA

Genome, Gene, Algae, Genetics and Botany are his primary areas of study. He interconnects Microorganism, Marine ecosystem, Microbiology, Protist and DNA sequencing in the investigation of issues within Genome. His Gene research includes themes of Ecology, Microbial ecology, Functional diversity and Physiology.

His work in the fields of Eukaryote, Microbiome and Virulence overlaps with other areas such as Blastocystis and Perkinsela. His work carried out in the field of Botany brings together such families of science as Evolutionary biology, Plastid and Phylogenetic tree. His Plastid study is concerned with Chloroplast in general.
