Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Bacteria
  • Gene
  • DNA

Maite Muniesa spends much of her time researching Microbiology, Bacteria, Bacteriophage, Escherichia coli and Virology. Her work is dedicated to discovering how Microbiology, Enterobacteriaceae are connected with Polymerase chain reaction and other disciplines. Her work in Bacteria addresses issues such as Isolation, which are connected to fields such as Natural reservoir and Serotype.

Her Bacteriophage research includes elements of Microbial genetics and Host. While the research belongs to areas of Escherichia coli, Maite Muniesa spends her time largely on the problem of Virulence, intersecting her research to questions surrounding Prophage, Plasmid and Pathogen. She usually deals with Virology and limits it to topics linked to Shiga toxin and Toxin.

Her most cited work include:

  • Antibiotic Resistance Genes in the Bacteriophage DNA Fraction of Environmental Samples (217 citations)
  • Extended-spectrum β-lactamase-producing Enterobacteriaceae in different environments (humans, food, animal farms and sewage) (191 citations)
  • Shiga Toxin-Producing Escherichia coli O104:H4: a New Challenge for Microbiology (152 citations)

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

Her primary areas of investigation include Microbiology, Escherichia coli, Bacteriophage, Bacteria and Shiga toxin. Her Microbiology research incorporates themes from Lysogenic cycle, Gene, Virulence and Virology. Her research integrates issues of Antibiotic resistance and DNA in her study of Gene.

Her Bacteriophage research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Virus, Host and Polymerase chain reaction. The various areas that Maite Muniesa examines in her Bacteria study include Isolation and Lysis. Her Shiga toxin study combines topics in areas such as Infectivity, Food microbiology and Transduction.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Microbiology (77.86%)
  • Escherichia coli (43.51%)
  • Bacteriophage (35.88%)

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

  • Microbiology (77.86%)
  • Escherichia coli (43.51%)
  • Gene (20.61%)

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

Microbiology, Escherichia coli, Gene, Bacteriophage and Bacteria are her primary areas of study. Maite Muniesa is studying Feces, which is a component of Microbiology. The Escherichia coli study combines topics in areas such as Plasmid and Antibiotic resistance.

Her Locus and Bacteroidetes study, which is part of a larger body of work in Gene, is frequently linked to Restriction modification system and Single molecule real time sequencing, bridging the gap between disciplines. Her Temperateness and Coliphage study in the realm of Bacteriophage connects with subjects such as Biosolids. Her Bacteria study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Antimicrobial, Capsid and Blood culture.

Between 2018 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Global phylogeography and ancient evolution of the widespread human gut virus crAssphage (71 citations)
  • Dynamics of crAssphage as a human source tracking marker in potentially faecally polluted environments (23 citations)
  • Infectious phage particles packaging antibiotic resistance genes found in meat products and chicken feces (20 citations)

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

  • Bacteria
  • Gene
  • DNA

Her primary scientific interests are in Microbiology, Coliphage, Feces, Bacteria and Gene. Maite Muniesa studies Microbiology, focusing on Drug resistance in particular. She has researched Coliphage in several fields, including Water quality, Risk analysis and Somatic cell.

Maite Muniesa combines subjects such as RNA, Norovirus, Virus and Antibiotic resistance genes with her study of Feces. Her studies in Bacteria integrate themes in fields like Pathogen, Blood culture, Lysis and Capsid. The Escherichia coli research Maite Muniesa does as part of her general Gene study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as Ascitic fluid, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science.
