Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Bacteria
  • DNA

His primary scientific interests are in Bifidobacterium, Microbiology, Genetics, Gut flora and Genome. The various areas that he examines in his Bifidobacterium study include Probiotic and Human gastrointestinal tract. His Microbiology research incorporates elements of Bifidobacterium longum, Host, Bifidobacterium animalis and Bacteria.

His studies deal with areas such as Type and Feces as well as Genetics. The concepts of his Gut flora study are interwoven with issues in Microbiome, Immune system, Commensalism and Firmicutes. In the field of Genome, his study on Genomics, Comparative genomics and Horizontal gene transfer overlaps with subjects such as Glycan.

His most cited work include:

  • Genomics of Actinobacteria: Tracing the Evolutionary History of an Ancient Phylum (723 citations)
  • Bacteria as vitamin suppliers to their host: a gut microbiota perspective. (618 citations)
  • The First Microbial Colonizers of the Human Gut: Composition, Activities, and Health Implications of the Infant Gut Microbiota. (421 citations)

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

Marco Ventura spends much of his time researching Genetics, Microbiology, Bifidobacterium, Gut flora and Genome. His works in Gene, Phylogenetics, Prophage, Comparative genomics and Phylogenetic tree are all subjects of inquiry into Genetics. His Microbiology research incorporates themes from Human gut, Bacteria, Bifidobacterium bifidum and Transcriptome.

His Bifidobacterium study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Probiotic and 16S ribosomal RNA. His Gut flora research integrates issues from Microbiome, Zoology, Feces and Metagenomics. He interconnects Bacteriophage and DNA sequencing in the investigation of issues within Genome.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (32.18%)
  • Microbiology (27.93%)
  • Bifidobacterium (25.00%)

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

  • Metagenomics (12.50%)
  • Gut flora (21.81%)
  • Bifidobacterium (25.00%)

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

Marco Ventura focuses on Metagenomics, Gut flora, Bifidobacterium, Genetics and Microbiology. His Metagenomics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Microbiome, Food science, 16S ribosomal RNA, Microbial population biology and Computational biology. The study incorporates disciplines such as Zoology, Feces, Commensalism and Bacteroides in addition to Gut flora.

His work deals with themes such as Immune system and Horizontal gene transfer, which intersect with Bifidobacterium. His Genomics, Genome, Gene and Whole genome sequencing study in the realm of Genetics connects with subjects such as Strain. His work on Antimicrobial as part of general Microbiology research is often related to Context, thus linking different fields of science.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Mother-to-Infant Microbial Transmission from Different Body Sites Shapes the Developing Infant Gut Microbiome. (293 citations)
  • Bifidobacteria and the infant gut: an example of co-evolution and natural selection (56 citations)
  • Understanding the gut–kidney axis in nephrolithiasis: an analysis of the gut microbiota composition and functionality of stone formers (50 citations)

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

  • Bacteria
  • Gene
  • DNA

Marco Ventura mainly investigates Gut flora, Metagenomics, Genetics, Bifidobacterium and Microbiome. His Gut flora research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Probiotic, Feces, Microbiology and Bacteroides. His Metagenomics research is within the category of Gene.

Genetics is represented through his Genomics, Genome, Lactococcus lactis, Bifidobacterium longum and Bifidobacterium breve research. His research in Genomics intersects with topics in Streptococcus thermophilus and Bacteria. His Bifidobacterium study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as 16S ribosomal RNA and Phylogenetic tree.
