Kevin V. Pixley mainly investigates Biotechnology, Biofortification, Genetic diversity, Germplasm and Molecular marker. Kevin V. Pixley combines subjects such as Agronomy and Plant breeding with his study of Biotechnology. His study in Agronomy is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Inbred strain and Locus.
The concepts of his Plant breeding study are interwoven with issues in Micronutrient deficiency, Food processing, Crop and Heritability. His studies deal with areas such as Genetics, Food science, Carotenoid, Retinol and Malnutrition as well as Biofortification. His research integrates issues of Animal science, Hypervitaminosis A and Vitamin A deficiency in his study of Food science.
His primary areas of study are Agronomy, Biotechnology, Biofortification, Plant breeding and Carotenoid. The study incorporates disciplines such as Zea mays, Cultivar and Germplasm in addition to Biotechnology. His Germplasm research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Genetic marker, Inbred strain and Genetic diversity.
His studies in Biofortification integrate themes in fields like Fortification, Food science, Vitamin A deficiency, Staple food and Malnutrition. Kevin V. Pixley interconnects Quantitative trait locus, Crop yield and Heritability in the investigation of issues within Plant breeding. His Carotenoid research includes themes of Animal science and Vitamin, Retinol.
Biofortification, Plant breeding, Carotenoid, Domestication and Vitamin are his primary areas of study. The concepts of his Biofortification study are interwoven with issues in Food science, Crop diversity and Agronomy. His Plant breeding study deals with Genetic marker intersecting with Haplotype, Aegilops tauschii and Allele.
His Carotenoid research incorporates themes from Aspergillus flavus, Mycotoxin, Animal science and Malnutrition. His work on Retinol as part of general Vitamin study is frequently linked to SCARB1, bridging the gap between disciplines. His work investigates the relationship between Evolutionary biology and topics such as Genome that intersect with problems in Germplasm.
Kevin V. Pixley mostly deals with Plant breeding, Genetic marker, Germplasm, Disease resistant and Genome editing. His Plant breeding study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Toxicology, Aspergillus flavus, Mycotoxin, Carotenoid and Aflatoxin. His Genetic marker research integrates issues from Evolutionary biology, Domestication, Genome and Genetic variation.
The various areas that he examines in his Germplasm study include Genetics, Quantitative trait locus, Allele, Haplotype and Aegilops tauschii. His Disease resistant research incorporates elements of Biotechnology, Genetically modified organism and Synthetic biology.
