Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • DNA

His primary areas of investigation include Genetics, Mitochondrial DNA, Evolutionary biology, Genetic variation and Population genetics. His study in Haplotype, Allele frequency, mtDNA control region, Human genome and Y chromosome are all subfields of Genetics. His work carried out in the field of Mitochondrial DNA brings together such families of science as Molecular evolution, Phylogenetic tree and DNA sequencing.

Mark Stoneking has included themes like Lineage, Ancient DNA, Polynesians, Near Oceania and Gene pool in his Evolutionary biology study. His Genetic variation research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Human genetic variation, Human evolution, Polymorphism and Genetic diversity. His Population genetics study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Gene flow, Human migration and Ethnology.

His most cited work include:

  • Mitochondrial DNA and human evolution (2245 citations)
  • Genetic history of an archaic hominin group from Denisova Cave in Siberia (1146 citations)
  • African populations and the evolution of human mitochondrial DNA (1105 citations)

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

Mark Stoneking spends much of his time researching Genetics, Evolutionary biology, Mitochondrial DNA, Haplotype and Genetic variation. His work in Genetics is not limited to one particular discipline; it also encompasses Population genetics. His Evolutionary biology research includes elements of Genetic structure, Genetic diversity, Haplogroup, Genome and Y chromosome.

His Haplogroup study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Bantu languages and Demic diffusion. The Mitochondrial DNA study combines topics in areas such as Variation, mtDNA control region and Human mitochondrial DNA haplogroup. His study in Microsatellite extends to Haplotype with its themes.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (47.26%)
  • Evolutionary biology (40.21%)
  • Mitochondrial DNA (27.94%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2013-2021)?

  • Evolutionary biology (40.21%)
  • Mitochondrial DNA (27.94%)
  • Genetics (47.26%)

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

His primary areas of study are Evolutionary biology, Mitochondrial DNA, Genetics, Genome and Genetic diversity. His studies deal with areas such as Y chromosome, Genetic variation, Demographic history and Haplogroup as well as Evolutionary biology. His research integrates issues of Variation and Human mitochondrial DNA haplogroup in his study of Mitochondrial DNA.

His work in Heteroplasmy, Allele frequency, Minor allele frequency, Single-nucleotide polymorphism and Allele are all subfields of Genetics research. His work on Whole genome sequencing and Genomics as part of general Genome research is frequently linked to South asia and DNA microarray, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science. His work deals with themes such as Cultural diversity, Diversity, Vietnamese and Exogamy, which intersect with Genetic diversity.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Whole-genome sequence variation, population structure and demographic history of the Dutch population (522 citations)
  • A genomic history of Aboriginal Australia (222 citations)
  • Ancient west Eurasian ancestry in southern and eastern Africa (187 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • DNA

Mark Stoneking focuses on Evolutionary biology, Genetics, Mitochondrial DNA, Haplogroup and Population genetics. The concepts of his Evolutionary biology study are interwoven with issues in Genome, Human genome, Denisovan, Genetic variation and Haplotype. His work is connected to Allele frequency, Allele, Single-nucleotide polymorphism, Gene and Directional selection, as a part of Genetics.

His study looks at the relationship between Mitochondrial DNA and fields such as Human migration, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems. Mark Stoneking combines subjects such as Bantu languages and Genetic diversity with his study of Haplogroup. As a part of the same scientific family, Mark Stoneking mostly works in the field of Population genetics, focusing on Ethnology and, on occasion, Mainland, Ethnic group and Prehistory.
