Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Virus
  • DNA

His scientific interests lie mostly in Virology, RNA interference, Aedes aegypti, Virus and RNA. His Virology study frequently draws connections to adjacent fields such as Sindbis virus. His RNA interference study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Interferon, Gene silencing, Cell culture and RNA virus.

His Aedes aegypti research integrates issues from Vector and Flavivirus. His research in Virus intersects with topics in Innate immune system and Midgut. His Dengue virus study combines topics in areas such as Gene and Viral replication.

His most cited work include:

  • Dengue virus type 2 infections of Aedes aegypti are modulated by the mosquito's RNA interference pathway. (339 citations)
  • Engineering RNA interference-based resistance to dengue virus type 2 in genetically modified Aedes aegypti (327 citations)
  • Dengue virus type 2: replication and tropisms in orally infected Aedes aegypti mosquitoes (327 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Virology, Virus, Aedes aegypti, Sindbis virus and RNA interference. His study looks at the relationship between Virology and fields such as RNA, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems. Ken E. Olson interconnects Molecular biology and Recombinant virus in the investigation of issues within Virus.

His work carried out in the field of Aedes aegypti brings together such families of science as Genetics, Gene, Arbovirus, Aedes and Midgut. His Sindbis virus research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of RNA virus, Structural gene, Transfection, Expression vector and Subgenomic mRNA. His studies in RNA interference integrate themes in fields like Innate immune system, Immune system, Gene silencing and Small interfering RNA.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Virology (80.15%)
  • Virus (47.06%)
  • Aedes aegypti (44.85%)

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

  • Virology (80.15%)
  • Aedes aegypti (44.85%)
  • RNA (25.00%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Virology, Aedes aegypti, RNA, Arbovirus and Virus. The various areas that he examines in his Virology study include Vector, RNA interference and Immune system. His Aedes aegypti research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Bioassay and Dengue fever.

His RNA study incorporates themes from Acquired immune system, Genome, Endogenous retrovirus, Endogeny and Retrotransposon. His Virus study necessitates a more in-depth grasp of Immunology. As part of one scientific family, Ken E. Olson deals mainly with the area of Dengue virus, narrowing it down to issues related to the Gene, and often Molecular biology.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The role of RNA interference (RNAi) in arbovirus-vector interactions. (94 citations)
  • Arbovirus-mosquito interactions: RNAi pathway. (64 citations)
  • Fitness Impact and Stability of a Transgene Conferring Resistance to Dengue-2 Virus following Introgression into a Genetically Diverse Aedes aegypti Strain (55 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Virus

His main research concerns Virology, RNA interference, Piwi-interacting RNA, RNA and Genetics. Ken E. Olson has researched Virology in several fields, including Vector and Neuroinflammation. The study of RNA interference is intertwined with the study of Small interfering RNA in a number of ways.

His Piwi-interacting RNA research incorporates elements of Virus, Endogenous retrovirus, Retrotransposon, Cell biology and Aedes aegypti. His RNA research is mostly focused on the topic RNA silencing. His research on Gene frequently connects to adjacent areas such as Dengue virus.
