Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Chromosome

Josef Loidl mainly focuses on Genetics, Meiosis, Synapsis, Homologous chromosome and Synaptonemal complex. As a part of the same scientific family, Josef Loidl mostly works in the field of Genetics, focusing on Cell biology and, on occasion, Kinetochore. His Meiosis study typically links adjacent topics like Homologous recombination.

Josef Loidl works mostly in the field of Homologous chromosome, limiting it down to topics relating to Caenorhabditis elegans and, in certain cases, Nuclear protein, Chromosome breakage, Molecular biology and SUN domain. In his work, Spo11 is strongly intertwined with Prophase, which is a subfield of Synaptonemal complex. His Chromosome segregation research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Sister chromatids and Cohesin.

His most cited work include:

  • Disjunction of Homologous Chromosomes in Meiosis I Depends on Proteolytic Cleavage of the Meiotic Cohesin Rec8 by Separin (371 citations)
  • The Mus81/Mms4 endonuclease acts independently of double-Holliday junction resolution to promote a distinct subset of crossovers during meiosis in budding yeast. (319 citations)
  • Cohesin ensures bipolar attachment of microtubules to sister centromeres and resists their precocious separation. (286 citations)

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

Josef Loidl focuses on Genetics, Meiosis, Cell biology, Homologous chromosome and Synaptonemal complex. His is doing research in Homologous recombination, Synapsis, Genetic recombination, Chromosome and Chiasma, both of which are found in Genetics. His Meiosis study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Tetrahymena.

His Cell biology research incorporates elements of Meiocyte, Cohesin, Chromosome segregation and Spo11. His Homologous chromosome research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Caenorhabditis elegans, Bivalent and Homology. As part of the same scientific family, he usually focuses on Synaptonemal complex, concentrating on Schizosaccharomyces pombe and intersecting with FLP-FRT recombination.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (72.27%)
  • Meiosis (67.23%)
  • Cell biology (32.77%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2014-2020)?

  • Tetrahymena (21.01%)
  • Meiosis (67.23%)
  • Cell biology (32.77%)

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

Tetrahymena, Meiosis, Cell biology, Genetics and Homologous recombination are his primary areas of study. His research in Meiosis focuses on subjects like Mitosis, which are connected to Chromosome segregation. The Cell biology study combines topics in areas such as Chromatin, RNA and Spo11.

Josef Loidl incorporates Genetics and Crossover in his research. In his study, Sister chromatids, Meiotic DNA double-strand break formation and DNA damage is inextricably linked to Prophase, which falls within the broad field of Homologous recombination. His research in Genetic recombination intersects with topics in Chromosome pairing and Synaptonemal complex.

Between 2014 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • Conservation and Variability of Meiosis Across the Eukaryotes. (53 citations)
  • Post-meiotic DNA double-strand breaks occur in Tetrahymena, and require Topoisomerase II and Spo11. (18 citations)
  • DNA double-strand break formation and repair in Tetrahymena meiosis. (13 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Chromosome

Josef Loidl mainly investigates Genetics, Meiosis, Tetrahymena, Genetic recombination and DNA. Josef Loidl combines subjects such as Protist and A protein with his study of Tetrahymena. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Chromosome pairing, Synaptonemal complex and Homologous recombination.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Recombination, Homologous chromosome, Model organism and Cell biology in addition to DNA. His Model organism research includes elements of Mitosis and Endonuclease.
