Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Ecology
  • DNA

Le Kang focuses on Migratory locust, Locust, Genetics, Botany and Gene. His Migratory locust research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Evolutionary biology, Cas9, Cell biology, Mutagenesis and Regulation of gene expression. His study with Locust involves better knowledge in Ecology.

His work in Gene expression profiling, Genome, Transcriptome, Genetic analysis and Microsatellite is related to Genetics. The various areas that Le Kang examines in his Botany study include RNA interference, Plant defense against herbivory and Horticulture. In his work, Heat shock protein, HSP60, Heat shock, Liriomyza sativae and Cold hardening is strongly intertwined with Molecular biology, which is a subfield of Gene.

His most cited work include:

  • A second generation human haplotype map of over 3.1 million SNPs (3819 citations)
  • Grassland ecosystems in China: review of current knowledge and research advancement (340 citations)
  • The locust genome provides insight into swarm formation and long-distance flight (293 citations)

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

Le Kang mainly investigates Migratory locust, Locust, Botany, Ecology and Gene. The Migratory locust study combines topics in areas such as Evolutionary biology, Polyphenism, Phenotypic plasticity, RNA interference and Cell biology. His work deals with themes such as Heat shock protein, Juvenile hormone, Gene knockdown and Transcription factor, which intersect with Cell biology.

He has included themes like Population density, Transcriptome, microRNA, Gene silencing and Computational biology in his Locust study. His Botany research incorporates themes from Orthoptera, Host and Horticulture. His Gene study results in a more complete grasp of Genetics.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Migratory locust (31.54%)
  • Locust (26.56%)
  • Botany (23.24%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Migratory locust (31.54%)
  • Cell biology (19.09%)
  • Locust (26.56%)

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

Le Kang spends much of his time researching Migratory locust, Cell biology, Locust, Gene and Zoology. His study looks at the intersection of Migratory locust and topics like Polyphenism with Binding protein and Carotene. His work on Signal transduction as part of general Cell biology study is frequently linked to Threshold temperature, bridging the gap between disciplines.

His research integrates issues of Transcriptome, Gene expression, Gene knockdown, microRNA and Computational biology in his study of Locust. His Gene research includes themes of Evolutionary biology, Insect and Natural selection. His Insect study incorporates themes from Genetics, Acyrthosiphon pisum, Insect Diapause, Aphid and Natural variation.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Evolution of heat‐shock protein expression underlying adaptive responses to environmental stress (54 citations)
  • Armet, an aphid effector protein, induces pathogen resistance in plants by promoting the accumulation of salicylic acid (15 citations)
  • Genetic variation in PTPN1 contributes to metabolic adaptation to high-altitude hypoxia in Tibetan migratory locusts. (15 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Ecology
  • DNA

Le Kang mostly deals with Migratory locust, Locust, Gene, Cell biology and Zoology. His Migratory locust research includes elements of Polyphenism and Transcription factor. His Locust course of study focuses on Transcriptome and Computational biology, Adenylyl cyclase, Downregulation and upregulation, microRNA and Regulation of gene expression.

His work carried out in the field of Gene brings together such families of science as Evolutionary biology and Natural selection. He combines subjects such as Binding protein and Gene knockdown with his study of Cell biology. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Pesticide resistance, Pesticide, Pheromone and PEST analysis.
