Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • Mutation

His primary areas of investigation include Genetics, Genome-wide association study, Genetic association, Single-nucleotide polymorphism and Linkage disequilibrium. His Genetics study is mostly concerned with Gene, Haplotype, Locus, Genome and Allele. The various areas that Mark J. Daly examines in his Genome-wide association study study include Bipolar disorder, Immunology, Quantitative trait locus, Disease and ANK3.

Mark J. Daly has included themes like Common disease-common variant, Population stratification, Autism, Heritability and Candidate gene in his Genetic association study. His study on Single-nucleotide polymorphism also encompasses disciplines like

  • Genetic variation that connect with fields like Human genetic variation,
  • Copy-number variation together with Exome sequencing. His research investigates the connection between Human genome and topics such as Computational biology that intersect with issues in 1000 Genomes Project, Genotyping and Multiple comparisons problem.

His most cited work include:

  • PLINK: A Tool Set for Whole-Genome Association and Population-Based Linkage Analyses (18952 citations)
  • PLINK: A Tool Set for Whole-Genome Association and Population-Based Linkage Analyses (18952 citations)
  • The Genome Analysis Toolkit: A MapReduce framework for analyzing next-generation DNA sequencing data (13702 citations)

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

Mark J. Daly mainly focuses on Genetics, Genome-wide association study, Genetic association, Single-nucleotide polymorphism and Gene. His work is connected to Allele, Locus, Haplotype, Linkage disequilibrium and Exome sequencing, as a part of Genetics. His Genome-wide association study study also includes fields such as

  • Computational biology and related Genomics,
  • Immunology that intertwine with fields like Ulcerative colitis.

His research integrates issues of Genotyping and Genetic architecture in his study of Genetic association. The concepts of his Single-nucleotide polymorphism study are interwoven with issues in Quantitative trait locus and Internal medicine. His work on Gene deals in particular with Genetic variation, Missense mutation, Genome and Phenotype.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (93.39%)
  • Genome-wide association study (51.21%)
  • Genetic association (30.13%)

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

  • Genetics (93.39%)
  • Genome-wide association study (51.21%)
  • Computational biology (20.33%)

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

His main research concerns Genetics, Genome-wide association study, Computational biology, Gene and Exome sequencing. His work in Genetics tackles topics such as Autism spectrum disorder which are related to areas like Clinical psychology. His Genome-wide association study study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Biobank, Genomics, Disease, Genetic association and Heritability.

His Genetic association study introduces a deeper knowledge of Single-nucleotide polymorphism. His studies deal with areas such as Univariate, Whole genome sequencing and Human genetics as well as Computational biology. He has researched Exome sequencing in several fields, including Inflammatory bowel disease, Autism, Immunology and Intellectual disability.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Analysis of shared heritability in common disorders of the brain (726 citations)
  • Analysis of shared heritability in common disorders of the brain (726 citations)
  • Discovery of the first genome-wide significant risk loci for attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder. (644 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Mutation
  • Genetics

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Genome-wide association study, Genetics, Exome sequencing, Gene and Genetic variation. His Genome-wide association study research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Schizophrenia, Bipolar disorder, Genetic association, Clinical psychology and Heritability. His Disease research extends to the thematically linked field of Genetics.

His work deals with themes such as Haplotype, Autism, Allele frequency and Index case, which intersect with Exome sequencing. As a member of one scientific family, Mark J. Daly mostly works in the field of Gene, focusing on Computational biology and, on occasion, Genomics. His Genetic variation study which covers Genome that intersects with Human genetics, Evolutionary biology, DNA Mutational Analysis and DNA binding site.
