Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Enzyme

Julius Lukeš mostly deals with Phylogenetics, Genetics, Evolutionary biology, Phylogenetic tree and Genome. His study in Phylogenetics is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Ecology, Trypanosomatina, Ribosomal RNA, Protist and Parasitism. His Ribosomal RNA study incorporates themes from Taxonomic rank, Bodo saltans and Clade, Monophyly.

Julius Lukeš combines subjects such as Taxonomy, Botany, Alveolate and Endosymbiosis with his study of Evolutionary biology. His work on Genomics and Whole genome sequencing is typically connected to Context as part of general Genome study, connecting several disciplines of science. His study looks at the intersection of Trypanosoma and topics like Zoology with Paraphyly.

His most cited work include:

  • The revised classification of eukaryotes (1087 citations)
  • Eukaryotic plankton diversity in the sunlit ocean (909 citations)
  • Eukaryotic plankton diversity in the sunlit ocean (909 citations)

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

Genetics, Phylogenetics, Trypanosoma brucei, Mitochondrion and Evolutionary biology are his primary areas of study. His study in Gene, Genome, RNA editing, Mitochondrial DNA and Kinetoplast is carried out as part of his studies in Genetics. The various areas that Julius Lukeš examines in his Phylogenetics study include Zoology, Taxonomy, Ribosomal RNA and Phylogenetic tree.

His Phylogenetic tree study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Subfamily and Botany. He has researched Trypanosoma brucei in several fields, including Cytosol, RNA interference, Trypanosoma and Cell biology. His studies in Evolutionary biology integrate themes in fields like Host, Euglenozoa, Protist and Endosymbiosis.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (49.46%)
  • Phylogenetics (40.40%)
  • Trypanosoma brucei (39.13%)

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

  • Evolutionary biology (32.79%)
  • Genome (34.06%)
  • Gene (30.80%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Evolutionary biology, Genome, Gene, Mitochondrion and Cell biology. His Evolutionary biology research incorporates themes from Endosymbiosis, Euglenozoa, Phylogenetics, Trypanosoma and Taxonomy. His Phylogenetics study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as 18S ribosomal RNA, Phylogenetic tree and Kinetoplastida.

His Gene research is classified as research in Genetics. His research in Mitochondrion intersects with topics in RNA editing and Organelle. As a part of the same scientific study, Julius Lukeš usually deals with the Cell biology, concentrating on Trypanosoma brucei and frequently concerns with RNA interference.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Revisions to the Classification, Nomenclature, and Diversity of Eukaryotes (325 citations)
  • Revisions to the Classification, Nomenclature, and Diversity of Eukaryotes (325 citations)
  • Trypanosomatids Are Much More than Just Trypanosomes: Clues from the Expanded Family Tree (71 citations)
