Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • DNA

Leif Andersson mainly focuses on Genetics, Gene, Locus, Domestication and Allele. His study ties his expertise on Evolutionary biology together with the subject of Genetics. In the field of Gene, his study on Phenotype, Gene duplication and Regulation of gene expression overlaps with subjects such as Pigment.

He works mostly in the field of Locus, limiting it down to topics relating to Sequence analysis and, in certain cases, Missense mutation, Peptide sequence and Coding region. The Domestication study combines topics in areas such as Zoology, Domestic pig, Wild boar, Ancient DNA and Haplotype. His Allele study incorporates themes from Genotype and White.

His most cited work include:

  • Sequence and comparative analysis of the chicken genome provide unique perspectives on vertebrate evolution (2193 citations)
  • A regulatory mutation in IGF2 causes a major QTL effect on muscle growth in the pig (750 citations)
  • A regulatory mutation in IGF2 causes a major QTL effect on muscle growth in the pig (750 citations)

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

Genetics, Gene, Locus, Allele and Molecular biology are his primary areas of study. His Genetics study is mostly concerned with Quantitative trait locus, Genetic linkage, Phenotype, Gene mapping and Domestication. In most of his Gene studies, his work intersects topics such as Evolutionary biology.

His studies deal with areas such as Adaptation and Genome, Genomics as well as Evolutionary biology. His Locus research includes themes of Coat, Missense mutation and Genotype. Leif Andersson frequently studies issues relating to Genetic variation and Allele.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (100.14%)
  • Gene (51.67%)
  • Locus (30.64%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Genetics (100.14%)
  • Adaptation (13.79%)
  • Evolutionary biology (28.27%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Genetics, Adaptation, Evolutionary biology, Phenotype and Atlantic herring. His Genetics study focuses mostly on Gene, Allele, Mutation, Gene duplication and Candidate gene. His studies in Allele integrate themes in fields like CDKN2A and Genetic variation.

In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Candidate gene, Domestication is strongly linked to Population genetics. The concepts of his Evolutionary biology study are interwoven with issues in Structural variation, Intraspecific competition, Natural selection, Autosome and Introgression. Leif Andersson studied Phenotype and Mutation that intersect with Ectopic expression, Feather, Microphthalmia and Locus.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Regulatory changes in pterin and carotenoid genes underlie balanced color polymorphisms in the wall lizard. (58 citations)
  • Regulatory changes in pterin and carotenoid genes underlie balanced color polymorphisms in the wall lizard. (58 citations)
  • Regulatory changes in pterin and carotenoid genes underlie balanced color polymorphisms in the wall lizard. (58 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • DNA

Leif Andersson mainly focuses on Evolutionary biology, Single-nucleotide polymorphism, Genetics, Genetic variation and Atlantic herring. His Evolutionary biology research incorporates themes from Structural variation, Genome, Adaptation, Local adaptation and Biological dispersal. His research in Single-nucleotide polymorphism intersects with topics in Genetic diversity, Computational biology, DNA sequencing and Population genomics.

His studies in Mutation, Candidate gene, Gene mapping and TYRP1 are all subfields of Genetics research. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Carotenoid and Allele. His Allele study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Domestication and Population genetics.
