Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Biochemistry
  • Animal science

Josep Gasa mainly investigates Animal science, Food science, Microbiology, Jejunum and Cecum. His Animal science study focuses on Weaning in particular. His Food science research includes elements of Incubation and Polysaccharide.

He works mostly in the field of Microbiology, limiting it down to topics relating to Lactobacillus and, in certain cases, 16S ribosomal RNA. His work in Jejunum addresses subjects such as Ileum, which are connected to disciplines such as Immunology. His research investigates the connection with Cecum and areas like Dose–response relationship which intersect with concerns in Stomach emptying and Acidifier.

His most cited work include:

  • Quantification of total bacteria, enterobacteria and lactobacilli populations in pig digesta by real-time PCR (223 citations)
  • Effect of Plant Extracts and Formic Acid on the Intestinal Equilibrium of Early-Weaned Pigs (210 citations)
  • Effects of spray-dried porcine plasma and plant extracts on intestinal morphology and on leukocyte cell subsets of weaned pigs. (143 citations)

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

Josep Gasa mostly deals with Animal science, Food science, Weaning, Body weight and Lactation. His Animal science research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Feed conversion ratio and Rumen. His study on Rumen also encompasses disciplines like

  • Straw, which have a strong connection to Urea and Ammonia,
  • Excretion and related Allantoin.

His work carried out in the field of Food science brings together such families of science as Gastrointestinal tract and Feces. The Weaning study combines topics in areas such as Herd, Biochemistry, Intraepithelial lymphocyte and Cecum. His research in Broiler focuses on subjects like Jejunum, which are connected to Microbiology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Animal science (60.00%)
  • Food science (24.80%)
  • Weaning (17.60%)

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

  • Animal science (60.00%)
  • Body weight (16.00%)
  • Lactation (11.20%)

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

Josep Gasa spends much of his time researching Animal science, Body weight, Lactation, Weaning and Lysine. His research on Animal science frequently connects to adjacent areas such as Feed conversion ratio. His study focuses on the intersection of Body weight and fields such as Large white with connections in the field of Dietary treatment.

His study in Weaning is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Slaughter weight and Quarantine. His biological study deals with issues like Sire, which deal with fields such as Carcass composition. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Litter and Biosafety.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Feeding strategies in pig production: Sows and their piglets (22 citations)
  • Potential risk factors related to pig body weight variability from birth to slaughter in commercial conditions. (12 citations)
  • Using the Biocheck.UGent™ scoring tool in Irish farrow-to-finish pig farms: assessing biosecurity and its relation to productive performance (10 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Biochemistry
  • Animal science

His primary areas of investigation include Animal science, Body weight, Weaning, Lactation and Carcass weight. His work on Herd as part of general Animal science research is often related to Lameness, thus linking different fields of science. His Herd research incorporates elements of Litter, Loin, Claw and Animal welfare.

His Weaning study combines topics in areas such as Feed conversion ratio and Slaughter weight. In his study, Carcass composition is inextricably linked to Sire, which falls within the broad field of Carcass weight. The study incorporates disciplines such as Odds ratio and Logistic regression in addition to Coefficient of variation.
