Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Virus
  • Gene
  • DNA

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Virology, Virus, RNA, Classical swine fever and Molecular biology. His work on Serotype as part of general Virology study is frequently connected to Orbivirus, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them. The concepts of his Virus study are interwoven with issues in Taq polymerase, Real-time polymerase chain reaction, Recombinant virus and Polymerase chain reaction.

When carried out as part of a general RNA research project, his work on RNA-dependent RNA polymerase is frequently linked to work in Coronavirus, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study. His Classical swine fever research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Viral replication and Pestivirus. The Molecular biology study combines topics in areas such as Interferon regulatory factors, Innate immune system, IRF3, Regulation of gene expression and Signal transduction.

His most cited work include:

  • Genetic characterization of toggenburg orbivirus, a new bluetongue virus, from goats, Switzerland. (234 citations)
  • Nucleotide sequence of classical swine fever virus strain Alfort/187 and transcription of infectious RNA from stably cloned full-length cDNA. (186 citations)
  • Classical Swine Fever Virus Npro Interacts with Interferon Regulatory Factor 3 and Induces Its Proteasomal Degradation (168 citations)

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

Virology, Virus, Classical swine fever, RNA and Pestivirus are his primary areas of study. His work on Serotype as part of general Virology research is frequently linked to Coronavirus, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science. The study incorporates disciplines such as Molecular biology, Replicon, Polymerase chain reaction and Microbiology in addition to Virus.

His Molecular biology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Nucleic acid sequence, Plasmid, Internal ribosome entry site, Complementary DNA and Primer. His Classical swine fever research incorporates themes from Vaccination, Recombinant virus, Cytopathic effect and Virulence. His RNA study combines topics in areas such as Cloning, Transcription and Protein biosynthesis.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Virology (86.84%)
  • Virus (65.79%)
  • Classical swine fever (40.79%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2009-2017)?

  • Virology (86.84%)
  • Virus (65.79%)
  • Classical swine fever (40.79%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Virology, Virus, Classical swine fever, Orbivirus and Serotype. His Virology research focuses on Outbreak in particular. His work carried out in the field of Virus brings together such families of science as Replicon, Genome and Hypervariable region.

His Classical swine fever study incorporates themes from Replication and Vaccination. His Serotype research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Environmental health, Culicoides, Viremia, Viral disease and Case fatality rate. His studies deal with areas such as Cloning and Coding region as well as RNA.

Between 2009 and 2017, his most popular works were:

  • Virological and pathological findings in Bluetongue virus serotype 8 infected sheep (43 citations)
  • Efficacy of chimeric Pestivirus vaccine candidates against classical swine fever: protection and DIVA characteristics. (37 citations)
  • Development and Validation of a Multiplex, Real-Time RT PCR Assay for the Simultaneous Detection of Classical and African Swine Fever Viruses (35 citations)

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

  • Virus
  • Gene
  • DNA

Martin A. Hofmann focuses on Virus, Virology, Classical swine fever, Vaccination and Diva. His Virus research includes elements of Antibody and Polymerase chain reaction. His Polymerase chain reaction research includes themes of Multiplex, Real-time polymerase chain reaction, African swine fever virus and Genotype.

Martin A. Hofmann studies Bluetongue disease, a branch of Virology. Martin A. Hofmann usually deals with Bluetongue disease and limits it to topics linked to Infectivity and Serotype and Viremia. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Serology and Outbreak.
