His main research concerns Caenorhabditis elegans, Cell biology, Gene, Genetics and Molecular biology. The study incorporates disciplines such as Degenerin Sodium Channels, Mutant and Neuroscience in addition to Caenorhabditis elegans. His Cell biology research includes themes of Gene expression, Mechanosensation and Green fluorescent protein.
His work on Gene product as part of his general Gene expression study is frequently connected to Larva, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science. His research investigates the connection between Gene and topics such as Microtubule that intersect with issues in Integral membrane protein and Gene interaction. His work on Mutation and Nucleic acid sequence as part of general Genetics research is often related to Neurodegeneration, thus linking different fields of science.
Martin Chalfie mainly focuses on Caenorhabditis elegans, Cell biology, Gene, Genetics and Molecular biology. His research integrates issues of Cellular differentiation, Mutation, Transcription factor, Cell fate determination and Mutant in his study of Caenorhabditis elegans. His Cell biology research includes elements of Cell, Mechanosensation and Green fluorescent protein.
His Mechanosensation study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Extracellular and Degenerin Sodium Channels. Polynucleotide is closely connected to Peptide in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Green fluorescent protein. His research is interdisciplinary, bridging the disciplines of DNA sequencing and Molecular biology.
His primary areas of investigation include Cell biology, Caenorhabditis elegans, Transcription factor, Genetics and Gene. His Cell biology study frequently links to adjacent areas such as Touch receptor. His Caenorhabditis elegans research includes elements of Cellular differentiation, Transduction, Chaperone, Mechanotransduction and Microtubule.
His work in the fields of Microtubule, such as Tubulin, overlaps with other areas such as Microtubule nucleation. As a member of one scientific family, he mostly works in the field of Gene, focusing on Binding site and, on occasion, Transcription. Martin Chalfie combines subjects such as Function and Neuronal differentiation with his study of Gene expression.
His primary scientific interests are in Caenorhabditis elegans, Cell biology, Genetics, Transcription factor and Mechanosensation. Martin Chalfie conducts interdisciplinary study in the fields of Caenorhabditis elegans and Dopaminergic through his works. His research on Cell biology often connects related areas such as Axon guidance.
Martin Chalfie focuses mostly in the field of Transcription factor, narrowing it down to topics relating to Cellular differentiation and, in certain cases, Histone methyltransferase, Histone, Molecular biology and Epigenetic Repression. The study incorporates disciplines such as Protein kinase B, Neuroscience, Tubulin, Microtubule and Kinase in addition to Mechanosensation. His Hox gene research also covers Gene and Gene expression studies.
