Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Bacteria

Kira S. Makarova spends much of her time researching Genetics, Genome, CRISPR, Computational biology and Gene. Her study in Cas9, Protospacer adjacent motif, Horizontal gene transfer, Genome editing and Phylogenetics is done as part of Genetics. Her Genome research includes themes of Deinococcus deserti, Sequence alignment and Protein family.

Kira S. Makarova interconnects RNA, Acquired immune system and Effector in the investigation of issues within CRISPR. The study incorporates disciplines such as RNA interference, Locus, Guide RNA and Mobile genetic elements in addition to Computational biology. In her research, CRISPR Spacers is intimately related to CRISPR Loci, which falls under the overarching field of Trans-activating crRNA.

Her most cited work include:

  • Cpf1 is a single RNA-guided endonuclease of a class 2 CRISPR-Cas system. (2116 citations)
  • Small CRISPR RNAs guide antiviral defense in prokaryotes (1640 citations)
  • Evolution and classification of the CRISPR-Cas systems (1605 citations)

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

Her primary areas of investigation include Genetics, Genome, Gene, CRISPR and Computational biology. Horizontal gene transfer, Archaea, Phylogenetics, DNA and Phylogenetic tree are subfields of Genetics in which her conducts study. Her Genome research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Evolutionary biology, Deinococcus radiodurans and Protein family.

Her CRISPR research integrates issues from RNA, Plasmid, Mobile genetic elements and Effector. Her research in Computational biology intersects with topics in Acquired immune system, Genome editing, Cas9, Guide RNA and Locus. Kira S. Makarova has included themes like CRISPR Loci and Protospacer adjacent motif in her Trans-activating crRNA study.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (67.21%)
  • Genome (51.23%)
  • Gene (34.84%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • CRISPR (28.28%)
  • Genome (51.23%)
  • Computational biology (28.28%)

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

Kira S. Makarova spends much of her time researching CRISPR, Genome, Computational biology, Genetics and Gene. Her studies in CRISPR integrate themes in fields like RNA, DNA, Mobile genetic elements, Transposable element and Effector. Her RNA study incorporates themes from Trans-activating crRNA and Nucleic acid.

Her Genome research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Evolutionary biology, Archaea and Locus. The Computational biology study combines topics in areas such as Acquired immune system, Comparative genomics, Cas9, Genome editing and Nuclease. Kira S. Makarova conducts interdisciplinary study in the fields of Genetics and Group II intron through her research.

Between 2015 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • C2c2 is a single-component programmable RNA-guided RNA-targeting CRISPR effector (859 citations)
  • Diversity, classification and evolution of CRISPR-Cas systems (577 citations)
  • Diversity and evolution of class 2 CRISPR-Cas systems (436 citations)
