Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Chromosome

Mary Lou Pardue spends much of his time researching Molecular biology, DNA, Genetics, Polytene chromosome and RNA. His research in Molecular biology intersects with topics in Heat shock protein, Cytoplasm, Drosophila melanogaster and Translation, Messenger RNA. As part of one scientific family, Mary Lou Pardue deals mainly with the area of DNA, narrowing it down to issues related to the Nucleic acid, and often Tissue culture, Satellite DNA and Circular bacterial chromosome.

The concepts of his Polytene chromosome study are interwoven with issues in Chromosome 4, RNA polymerase I, 28S ribosomal RNA and Ribosomal DNA. His RNA study combines topics in areas such as Gene duplication, Ribosomal RNA and In situ hybridization. The various areas that Mary Lou Pardue examines in his Telomere study include Chromosome and Retrotransposon, Transposable element.

His most cited work include:

  • Chromosomal localization of mouse satellite DNA. (973 citations)
  • FORMATION AND DETECTION OF RNA-DNA HYBRID MOLECULES IN CYTOLOGICAL PREPARATIONS (949 citations)
  • [38] Nucleic acid hybridization in cytological preparations (342 citations)

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

Mary Lou Pardue focuses on Genetics, Drosophila melanogaster, Molecular biology, Retrotransposon and Telomere. His study in Genetics focuses on Transposable element, Chromosome, Heterochromatin, Melanogaster and Gene. His Drosophila melanogaster research integrates issues from Heat shock protein, Homology, Locus and Cell biology.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Polytene chromosome, Cytoplasm, RNA, Xenopus and DNA. His work carried out in the field of RNA brings together such families of science as Messenger RNA, In situ hybridization, Ribosomal RNA, Cell nucleus and Transcription. Mary Lou Pardue focuses mostly in the field of Telomere, narrowing it down to matters related to Telomerase and, in some cases, Telomerase RNA component and Evolutionary biology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (57.02%)
  • Drosophila melanogaster (33.88%)
  • Molecular biology (32.23%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 1998-2016)?

  • Genetics (57.02%)
  • Retrotransposon (26.45%)
  • Telomere (25.62%)

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

Mary Lou Pardue mainly investigates Genetics, Retrotransposon, Telomere, Chromosome and Transposable element. His study involves Drosophila melanogaster, Melanogaster, Heterochromatin, Genome and Gene, a branch of Genetics. His Polytene chromosome research extends to the thematically linked field of Heterochromatin.

His Retrotransposon study also includes

  • Drosophila Protein that connect with fields like Cell nucleus,
  • RNA and related Transcription,
  • Euchromatin, which have a strong connection to Telomeric heterochromatin. His work deals with themes such as Reverse transcriptase, Drosophila, Telomerase and Untranslated region, which intersect with Telomere. His Telomerase research includes themes of Evolutionary biology, Telomerase RNA component and DNA.

Between 1998 and 2016, his most popular works were:

  • Retrotransposons Provide an Evolutionarily Robust Non-Telomerase Mechanism to Maintain Telomeres (195 citations)
  • Telomeres and telomerase: more than the end of the line. (84 citations)
  • Retrotransposons that maintain chromosome ends (80 citations)
