Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Bacteria
  • Enzyme
  • Gene

Karl-Heinz Schleifer mainly focuses on Microbiology, Ribosomal RNA, Genetics, Bacteria and Molecular biology. Karl-Heinz Schleifer has included themes like Nitrobacter, Nitrite oxidoreductase, Biochemistry and Biofilm in his Microbiology study. His Ribosomal RNA research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Proteobacteria, 16S ribosomal RNA, Molecular probe, Paramecium caudatum and Phylogenetics.

His study connects Computational biology and Genetics. His Bacteria research includes elements of Bacterial outer membrane, Moiety and Activated sludge. In Phylogenetic tree, he works on issues like Sequence alignment, which are connected to Sequence database.

His most cited work include:

  • Phylogenetic identification and in situ detection of individual microbial cells without cultivation. (7632 citations)
  • ARB: a software environment for sequence data (5947 citations)
  • Peptidoglycan types of bacterial cell walls and their taxonomic implications. (3069 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Microbiology, Bacteria, Ribosomal RNA, Genetics and Biochemistry. His research in Microbiology intersects with topics in 16S ribosomal RNA, Firmicutes, Bacilli, Peptidoglycan and Streptococcus. His study on Bacteria is mostly dedicated to connecting different topics, such as Activated sludge.

His research integrates issues of Sequence analysis, 23S ribosomal RNA, Molecular biology, Phylogenetics and Oligonucleotide in his study of Ribosomal RNA. His Phylogenetics research incorporates elements of Evolutionary biology, Taxonomy and Phylogenetic tree. His Genetics study frequently draws parallels with other fields, such as Computational biology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Microbiology (36.60%)
  • Bacteria (25.36%)
  • Ribosomal RNA (21.90%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2001-2020)?

  • Microbiology (36.60%)
  • Genetics (21.61%)
  • Ribosomal RNA (21.90%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Microbiology, Genetics, Ribosomal RNA, Phylogenetics and 16S ribosomal RNA. Karl-Heinz Schleifer interconnects Bacillales, Firmicutes, Microorganism, Acidovorax and Food microbiology in the investigation of issues within Microbiology. His research in Ribosomal RNA tackles topics such as Fluorescence in situ hybridization which are related to areas like Molecular biology and Oligonucleotide.

His Phylogenetics study also includes

  • Phylogenetic tree which intersects with area such as Planctomycetes and Sequence alignment,
  • Taxonomy, which have a strong connection to Evolutionary biology, Conserved signature indels and 'The All-Species Living Tree' Project. 16S ribosomal RNA is a subfield of Bacteria that he tackles. His work carried out in the field of Bacteria brings together such families of science as Activated sludge and Botany.

Between 2001 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • ARB: a software environment for sequence data (5947 citations)
  • Uniting the classification of cultured and uncultured bacteria and archaea using 16S rRNA gene sequences (1086 citations)
  • The All-Species Living Tree project: a 16S rRNA-based phylogenetic tree of all sequenced type strains (743 citations)

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

  • Bacteria
  • Enzyme
  • Gene

His primary areas of study are Genetics, Phylogenetics, Phylogenetic tree, Ribosomal RNA and Ecology. The study incorporates disciplines such as Evolutionary biology, Taxonomy and Sequence analysis in addition to Phylogenetics. His study looks at the relationship between Evolutionary biology and fields such as Rickettsiaceae, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems.

His work is dedicated to discovering how Phylogenetic tree, Sequence alignment are connected with Sequence database and other disciplines. His studies deal with areas such as Molecular biology and 23S ribosomal RNA as well as Ribosomal RNA. 16S ribosomal RNA is a subfield of Bacteria that Karl-Heinz Schleifer explores.
