Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Bacteria
  • Ecology
  • Carbon dioxide

Katrin Knittel focuses on Anaerobic oxidation of methane, Ecology, Methane, Archaea and Environmental chemistry. Katrin Knittel performs multidisciplinary studies into Anaerobic oxidation of methane and Hydrate Ridge in her work. Her Ecology study incorporates themes from Proteobacteria and Phylotype.

The Methane study combines topics in areas such as Microorganism and Sulfate-reducing bacteria. Her research in Sulfate-reducing bacteria intersects with topics in Biochemistry, Anaerobic bacteria, Biogeochemical cycle and Greenhouse gas. Her work focuses on many connections between Archaea and other disciplines, such as Mud volcano, that overlap with her field of interest in Siboglinidae, Deltaproteobacteria, Methylococcaceae and Microbial metabolism.

Her most cited work include:

  • SILVA: a comprehensive online resource for quality checked and aligned ribosomal RNA sequence data compatible with ARB (4376 citations)
  • Anaerobic Oxidation of Methane: Progress with an Unknown Process (1007 citations)
  • Microbial reefs in the Black Sea fueled by anaerobic oxidation of methane (598 citations)

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

Katrin Knittel mainly focuses on Environmental chemistry, Anaerobic oxidation of methane, Methane, Ecology and Archaea. The concepts of her Environmental chemistry study are interwoven with issues in Microorganism, Sulfate-reducing bacteria, Sulfate and Sediment core. In her works, Katrin Knittel conducts interdisciplinary research on Anaerobic oxidation of methane and Hydrate Ridge.

Her Methane research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Oceanography, Sediment and Hydrocarbon. Her Ecology study combines topics in areas such as Deltaproteobacteria and Microbial population biology. Katrin Knittel interconnects Thermophile, Syntrophy, Methanogenesis and Mud volcano in the investigation of issues within Archaea.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Environmental chemistry (47.41%)
  • Anaerobic oxidation of methane (37.93%)
  • Methane (32.76%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2013-2021)?

  • Environmental chemistry (47.41%)
  • Microbial population biology (12.93%)
  • Anaerobic oxidation of methane (37.93%)

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

Environmental chemistry, Microbial population biology, Anaerobic oxidation of methane, Ecology and Sediment are her primary areas of study. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Sulfate and Methanogenesis. Her studies deal with areas such as Candidatus and Archaea as well as Methanogenesis.

Her work in Anaerobic oxidation of methane is not limited to one particular discipline; it also encompasses Arctic shelf. In Ecology, she works on issues like Desulfobacteraceae, which are connected to Acidobacteria and Planctomycetes. Her Sediment research incorporates themes from Soil science, Cold seep, Methane and North sea.

Between 2013 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Global dispersion and local diversification of the methane seep microbiome (144 citations)
  • Thermophilic archaea activate butane via alkyl-coenzyme M formation (133 citations)
  • Diverse sulfate-reducing bacteria of the Desulfosarcina/Desulfococcus clade are the key alkane degraders at marine seeps (111 citations)

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

  • Bacteria
  • Ecology
  • Carbon dioxide

Katrin Knittel mainly investigates Ecology, Bacteria, Benthic zone, Anaerobic oxidation of methane and Deltaproteobacteria. Katrin Knittel mostly deals with Biogeochemical cycle in her studies of Ecology. Her research on Anaerobic oxidation of methane often connects related topics like Archaea.

Within one scientific family, she focuses on topics pertaining to Methanogenesis under Archaea, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Microorganism and Sulfur. Her Deltaproteobacteria study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Firmicutes, Ribosomal RNA, Phylum, Cosmopolitan distribution and Community structure. Her work in Microbial population biology covers topics such as Acidobacteria which are related to areas like Environmental chemistry.
