Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Bacteria
  • Enzyme
  • Ecology

His scientific interests lie mostly in Ecology, Bacteria, Shewanella oneidensis, Shewanella and Microbiology. His work deals with themes such as Genome, Genomics, Phylogenetics, Archaea and Metagenomics, which intersect with Ecology. His Bacteria study incorporates themes from Thiosulfate, Nutrient and Botany.

Kenneth H. Nealson combines subjects such as Electron transport chain and Biochemistry with his study of Shewanella oneidensis. His Shewanella study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Bacterial nanowires, Microbial fuel cell, Electron acceptor and Metal. His Microbiology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in 16S ribosomal RNA and Sulfur.

His most cited work include:

  • Environmental Genome Shotgun Sequencing of the Sargasso Sea (3489 citations)
  • The Sorcerer II Global Ocean Sampling Expedition: Northwest Atlantic through Eastern Tropical Pacific (1647 citations)
  • The Sorcerer II Global Ocean Sampling Expedition: Northwest Atlantic through Eastern Tropical Pacific (1647 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Bacteria, Ecology, Microbiology, Shewanella oneidensis and Environmental chemistry. His Bacteria research focuses on Electron acceptor and how it connects with Electron transfer. His Ecology study combines topics in areas such as Microbial ecology, Archaea and Hydrothermal vent.

As a member of one scientific family, Kenneth H. Nealson mostly works in the field of Shewanella oneidensis, focusing on Biochemistry and, on occasion, Shewanella putrefaciens. His work in Environmental chemistry tackles topics such as Manganese which are related to areas like Inorganic chemistry. His work on Thiosulfate as part of his general Sulfur study is frequently connected to Energy source, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Bacteria (19.68%)
  • Ecology (17.75%)
  • Microbiology (16.87%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2012-2021)?

  • Shewanella oneidensis (14.24%)
  • Environmental chemistry (12.83%)
  • Electron transport chain (4.92%)

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

Kenneth H. Nealson mainly investigates Shewanella oneidensis, Environmental chemistry, Electron transport chain, Ecology and Microbiology. His research in Shewanella oneidensis intersects with topics in Shewanella, Biophysics, Flavin group and Anaerobic respiration. The Shewanella study combines topics in areas such as Shewanella putrefaciens and Biochemistry.

As part of the same scientific family, Kenneth H. Nealson usually focuses on Electron transport chain, concentrating on Bacteria and intersecting with Sulfur. His Ecology research incorporates themes from Natural Springs and Geomicrobiology. His Microbiology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Biofilm, Genome, Computational biology and Metagenomics.

Between 2012 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Animals in a bacterial world, a new imperative for the life sciences (1396 citations)
  • Volatile and organic compositions of sedimentary rocks in Yellowknife Bay, Gale crater, Mars. (250 citations)
  • Rate enhancement of bacterial extracellular electron transport involves bound flavin semiquinones (238 citations)

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

  • Bacteria
  • Enzyme
  • Ecology

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Metagenomics, Ecology, Genome, Microbiology and Shewanella oneidensis. Kenneth H. Nealson has researched Metagenomics in several fields, including Microbial ecology, Computational biology, Archaea and Biofilm. His Ecology research integrates issues from Natural Springs and Geomicrobiology.

His study on Genomics is often connected to Polyphyly as part of broader study in Genome. He has included themes like Electron transport chain, Inorganic chemistry, Redox, Ferrous and Flavin group in his Shewanella oneidensis study. His Biochemistry research includes themes of Shewanella and Geobacter.
