What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Mutation

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in DNA repair, Homologous recombination, Genetics, DNA repair protein XRCC4 and Homology directed repair. The DNA repair study combines topics in areas such as DNA damage and Cell biology. The concepts of her Homologous recombination study are interwoven with issues in Mutation, Molecular biology, Cancer research and FLP-FRT recombination.

Her work in DNA repair protein XRCC4 addresses issues such as Gene conversion, which are connected to fields such as Chromosomal rearrangement, Chromosomal translocation and Heteroduplex. As a member of one scientific family, Maria Jasin mostly works in the field of Homology directed repair, focusing on Postreplication repair and, on occasion, Chromatid, Sister chromatids and Establishment of sister chromatid cohesion. Her work deals with themes such as Gene targeting and Gene, which intersect with DNA.

Her most cited work include:

  • XRCC3 promotes homology-directed repair of DNA damage in mammalian cells (1032 citations)
  • Brca1 controls homology-directed DNA repair. (1030 citations)
  • BRCA2 is required for homology-directed repair of chromosomal breaks. (802 citations)

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

Maria Jasin focuses on Homologous recombination, DNA repair, Genetics, Molecular biology and DNA. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Cancer research and Cell biology. The various areas that Maria Jasin examines in her DNA repair study include Replication protein A and DNA damage, Genome instability.

Maria Jasin has included themes like Mutation and DNA replication in her DNA damage study. Her Genetics study is mostly concerned with Chromosomal translocation, Meiosis, Homologous chromosome, Genetic recombination and Gene conversion. Her Molecular biology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Cell culture, Embryonic stem cell, Endonuclease, Stem cell and Gene targeting.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Homologous recombination (54.27%)
  • DNA repair (48.74%)
  • Genetics (41.21%)

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

  • Homologous recombination (54.27%)
  • Genetics (41.21%)
  • Cell biology (23.62%)

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

Her primary areas of study are Homologous recombination, Genetics, Cell biology, Cancer research and DNA repair. Her Homologous recombination research includes themes of Homologous chromosome, DNA Repair Pathway and Loss of heterozygosity. Her studies in Cell biology integrate themes in fields like Germinal center, B cell, Immunoglobulin class switching, Mi-2/NuRD complex and Chromatin.

Her Cancer research study combines topics in areas such as DNA-PKcs, RAD51C, Cisplatin and DNA replication. Her work on DNA repair protein XRCC4 and Non-homologous end joining is typically connected to Branch migration as part of general DNA repair study, connecting several disciplines of science. Her work on XRCC2 as part of general DNA research is frequently linked to Walker motifs, bridging the gap between disciplines.

Between 2017 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Allele-Specific Chromosome Removal after Cas9 Cleavage in Human Embryos. (30 citations)
  • Reading frame restoration at the EYS locus, and allele-specific chromosome removal after Cas9 cleavage in human embryos (10 citations)
  • Prevention of DNA Replication Stress by CHK1 Leads to Chemoresistance Despite a DNA Repair Defect in Homologous Recombination in Breast Cancer. (7 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Mutation

Her primary areas of investigation include Homologous recombination, Genetics, Mitosis, Chromosome and Zygote. Maria Jasin works in the field of Homologous recombination, focusing on XRCC2 in particular. Her study in the field of Gene isoform, RAD51, Exon and DNA is also linked to topics like Walker motifs.

Within one scientific family, Maria Jasin focuses on topics pertaining to Embryo under Mitosis, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Cell cycle. Her DNA replication study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Embryonal carcinoma, Cisplatin, Interstrand cross-link repair and DNA repair. Her studies deal with areas such as Genome instability, Ataxia-telangiectasia, Signal transduction, Chromosome instability and DNA Repair Pathway as well as Cancer research.
