Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Enzyme

His main research concerns Cryptococcus neoformans, Microbiology, Virulence, Genetics and Biochemistry. The various areas that Joseph Heitman examines in his Cryptococcus neoformans study include Pathogen, Serotype, Pathogenic fungus, Cryptococcosis and Fungal protein. His studies deal with areas such as Ustilago and Calcineurin as well as Microbiology.

Joseph Heitman combines subjects such as FKBP, Antifungal drug, Cyclosporin a and Pharmacology with his study of Calcineurin. His work on Saccharomyces cerevisiae, G protein-coupled receptor, Heterotrimeric G protein and Protein subunit as part of general Biochemistry research is frequently linked to Pseudohyphal growth, bridging the gap between disciplines. The study incorporates disciplines such as Signal transduction, Cell biology and Mutant in addition to Saccharomyces cerevisiae.

His most cited work include:

  • Targets for cell cycle arrest by the immunosuppressant rapamycin in yeast. (1532 citations)
  • The paleozoic origin of enzymatic lignin decomposition reconstructed from 31 fungal genomes (1059 citations)
  • Evolution of pathogenicity and sexual reproduction in eight Candida genomes (781 citations)

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

Joseph Heitman mostly deals with Genetics, Cryptococcus neoformans, Microbiology, Gene and Virulence. His Genetics and Mating type, Sexual reproduction, Locus, Fungal genetics and Genome investigations all form part of his Genetics research activities. His study in Cryptococcus neoformans is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Cryptococcus, Mutant, Cryptococcosis and Mating.

His Mutant study combines topics in areas such as Mutation, Molecular biology and Saccharomyces cerevisiae. His Microbiology research incorporates themes from Fungal protein and Calcineurin. As a part of the same scientific family, Joseph Heitman mostly works in the field of Calcineurin, focusing on FKBP and, on occasion, Cyclosporin a.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (36.26%)
  • Cryptococcus neoformans (33.87%)
  • Microbiology (29.87%)

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

  • Genetics (36.26%)
  • Gene (20.93%)
  • Microbiology (29.87%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Genetics, Gene, Microbiology, Cryptococcus and Cryptococcus neoformans. The concepts of his Gene study are interwoven with issues in Pathogen and Computational biology. His Microbiology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Bacteria, Mucormycosis and Virulence.

His Cryptococcus research integrates issues from Genotype, Species complex, Genetic diversity and DNA mismatch repair. His Cryptococcus neoformans study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Candida albicans. His Mating type study deals with Locus intersecting with Allele.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Drug-Resistant Epimutants Exhibit Organ-Specific Stability and Induction during Murine Infections Caused by the Human Fungal Pathogen Mucor circinelloides. (67 citations)
  • Fungi in the Marine Environment: Open Questions and Unsolved Problems. (59 citations)
  • Threats Posed by the Fungal Kingdom to Humans, Wildlife, and Agriculture. (45 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Enzyme

His primary scientific interests are in Genetics, Gene, Cryptococcus, Cryptococcus neoformans and Genome. His Gene course of study focuses on Drug resistance and Mucor, Mucor circinelloides, Drug, Epigenetics and Efflux. His research integrates issues of Genotype, Mutation rate, Genetic diversity and DNA mismatch repair in his study of Cryptococcus.

Microbiology covers Joseph Heitman research in Cryptococcus neoformans. His Microbiology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Human pathogen, Mutagenesis, Transposon mutagenesis, DNA transposon and Fungus. His Genome study incorporates themes from Centromere, Chromosome, Karyotype and DNA.
