Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Virus
  • Gene
  • DNA

His primary areas of investigation include Virology, Molecular biology, Recombinase Polymerase Amplification, Reverse transcriptase and Virus. The concepts of his Virology study are interwoven with issues in Reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction and Polymerase chain reaction. His Molecular biology research includes elements of Regulation of gene expression and DNA.

Manfred Weidmann usually deals with Recombinase Polymerase Amplification and limits it to topics linked to Nucleic acid amplification technique and Francisella tularensis. As part of his studies on Virus, Manfred Weidmann often connects relevant subjects like Alpha interferon. His research on Plaque-forming unit also deals with topics like

  • Titer which is related to area like Zika virus, Outbreak and Dengue fever,
  • Diarrhea which connect with Real-time polymerase chain reaction.

His most cited work include:

  • Quantitative real-time PCR detection of Zika virus and evaluation with field-caught Mosquitoes (280 citations)
  • One-step RT-PCR for detection of Zika virus (189 citations)
  • Induction of MxA Gene Expression by Influenza A Virus Requires Type I or Type III Interferon Signaling (181 citations)

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

Manfred Weidmann mainly investigates Virology, Virus, Recombinase Polymerase Amplification, Outbreak and Molecular biology. His Virology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Genetics, Reverse transcriptase, Polymerase chain reaction, Real-time polymerase chain reaction and Genome. Manfred Weidmann has researched Reverse transcriptase in several fields, including Reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction and Zika virus.

His Recombinase Polymerase Amplification research includes elements of Nucleic acid amplification technique and RNA. His work on Ebola virus as part of general Outbreak research is frequently linked to Socioeconomics, bridging the gap between disciplines. His Molecular biology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as TaqMan and Nucleic acid.

  • Virus (29.61%)

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

Manfred Weidmann spends much of his time researching Virology, Outbreak, Virus, Polymerase chain reaction and Loop-mediated isothermal amplification. His research in Virology intersects with topics in Reverse transcriptase and Genome, Gene. Many of his research projects under Outbreak are closely connected to Trout and Aedes cinereus with Trout and Aedes cinereus, tying the diverse disciplines of science together.

His research integrates issues of Codon Adaptation Index, Serotype, Genotype and Virulence in his study of Virus. His studies deal with areas such as RNA and Molecular diagnostics as well as Polymerase chain reaction. His Recombinase Polymerase Amplification research integrates issues from Nucleic acid amplification technique, Molecular biology, DNA extraction and Francisella.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • COVID-19: The environmental implications of shedding SARS-CoV-2 in human faeces. (42 citations)
  • Development and validation of four one-step real-time RT-LAMP assays for specific detection of each dengue virus serotype (27 citations)
  • Development of a single-tube one-step RT-LAMP assay to detect the Chikungunya virus genome. (23 citations)

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

  • Virus
  • Gene
  • DNA

Manfred Weidmann mainly focuses on Virology, Chikungunya, Virus, Outbreak and Recombinase Polymerase Amplification. His study of Dengue virus is a part of Virology. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Viral isolation and Aedes.

His Virus research incorporates elements of Genome and Virulence. His Ebola virus and Viral hemorrhagic fever study, which is part of a larger body of work in Outbreak, is frequently linked to Mobile laboratory and School age child, bridging the gap between disciplines.
