Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Genetics

Joseph R. Ecker focuses on Genetics, Arabidopsis, Gene, Arabidopsis thaliana and Epigenomics. His research combines Computational biology and Genetics. His Arabidopsis study combines topics in areas such as Jasmonic acid, Auxin and Cell biology.

His Arabidopsis thaliana research includes elements of Structural variation, Botany, Seedling, Jasmonate and Chloroplast. As part of one scientific family, he deals mainly with the area of Epigenomics, narrowing it down to issues related to the Epigenetics, and often Reprogramming, Epigenome, Induced pluripotent stem cell and Embryonic stem cell. The DNA methylation study combines topics in areas such as Chromatin and Methylation.

His most cited work include:

  • Genome-Wide Insertional Mutagenesis of Arabidopsis thaliana (4526 citations)
  • Integrative analysis of 111 reference human epigenomes (3776 citations)
  • Human DNA methylomes at base resolution show widespread epigenomic differences (3401 citations)

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

Joseph R. Ecker mainly focuses on Genetics, Arabidopsis, Gene, Cell biology and DNA methylation. His study in Genome, Regulation of gene expression, RNA-Directed DNA Methylation, Transcription and DNA sequencing falls under the purview of Genetics. The study incorporates disciplines such as Arabidopsis thaliana, Transcription factor and Signal transduction in addition to Arabidopsis.

The concepts of his Cell biology study are interwoven with issues in Cell division, Auxin, Induced pluripotent stem cell and Botany. His DNA methylation study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Chromatin, Methylation, DNA and Epigenetics. His studies in Epigenomics integrate themes in fields like Reprogramming, Differentially methylated regions, Illumina Methylation Assay and Epigenome.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (48.93%)
  • Arabidopsis (33.49%)
  • Gene (30.40%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Computational biology (20.90%)
  • DNA methylation (25.65%)
  • Cell biology (28.98%)

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

His main research concerns Computational biology, DNA methylation, Cell biology, Epigenomics and Gene. His Computational biology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Cell, Single-cell analysis, Genome, Chromatin and Gene regulatory network. Joseph R. Ecker has included themes like Evolutionary biology, Methylation, DNA, Reprogramming and Epigenetics in his DNA methylation study.

His Cell biology research integrates issues from Transcription factor, Arabidopsis, Mutant, Regulator and Histone. His Epigenomics study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Genomics, Genomic library and Epigenome. When carried out as part of a general Gene research project, his work on ORFeome and Interactome is frequently linked to work in Massively parallel, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Dynamic DNA methylation: In the right place at the right time (166 citations)
  • High contiguity Arabidopsis thaliana genome assembly with a single nanopore flow cell. (155 citations)
  • Expanded encyclopaedias of DNA elements in the human and mouse genomes (141 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Genome

His primary areas of investigation include Computational biology, Chromatin, Epigenomics, DNA methylation and Gene expression. The various areas that Joseph R. Ecker examines in his Computational biology study include Cell, Single-cell analysis and Genome, Genomics. His Epigenomics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Reprogramming, Transcriptome and Genomic library.
