Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Genus
  • Gene

Masaki Miya spends much of his time researching Phylogenetic tree, Mitochondrial DNA, Evolutionary biology, Phylogenetics and Genetics. His study in Phylogenetic tree is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Zoology and Taxon. Masaki Miya has included themes like Genome and DNA sequencing in his Mitochondrial DNA study.

His Evolutionary biology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Body plan, Molecular clock, Extinction event, Monophyly and Batoidea. His Monophyly study combines topics in areas such as Cypriniformes, Sister group and Cichlid. His study looks at the relationship between Phylogenetics and fields such as Ecology, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems.

His most cited work include:

  • Major patterns of higher teleostean phylogenies: a new perspective based on 100 complete mitochondrial DNA sequences. (618 citations)
  • MitoFish and MitoAnnotator: A Mitochondrial Genome Database of Fish with an Accurate and Automatic Annotation Pipeline (413 citations)
  • MiFish, a set of universal PCR primers for metabarcoding environmental DNA from fishes: detection of more than 230 subtropical marine species. (334 citations)

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

Masaki Miya mainly investigates Phylogenetic tree, Zoology, Evolutionary biology, Phylogenetics and Monophyly. His studies deal with areas such as Taxon, Ecology and Mitochondrial DNA as well as Phylogenetic tree. His Zoology study incorporates themes from Clupeiformes, Gonostomatidae and Molecular phylogenetics.

In his study, Acanthomorpha is strongly linked to Percomorpha, which falls under the umbrella field of Evolutionary biology. To a larger extent, he studies Gene with the aim of understanding Phylogenetics. His research on Monophyly also deals with topics like

  • Elopomorpha most often made with reference to Sister group,
  • Cypriniformes together with Characiformes.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Phylogenetic tree (36.07%)
  • Zoology (31.69%)
  • Evolutionary biology (27.32%)

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

  • Environmental DNA (18.03%)
  • Evolutionary biology (27.32%)
  • Ecology (24.04%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Environmental DNA, Evolutionary biology, Ecology, Biodiversity and Habitat. His Environmental DNA study combines topics in areas such as Intraspecific competition, Fish species, Endangered species and DNA sequencing. The Evolutionary biology study combines topics in areas such as Clade, Stromateoidei, Phylogenetic tree, Genetic diversity and Teleostei.

His study in Phylogenetic tree is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Gene duplication, Order, Phylogenetics and Xenodermichthys copei. His work on Fish migration, Habitat fragmentation and Critically endangered as part of general Ecology study is frequently linked to Salvelinus leucomaenis, bridging the gap between disciplines. His research investigates the connection between Adaptive radiation and topics such as Pelagic zone that intersect with issues in Mitochondrial DNA.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • MitoFish and MiFish Pipeline: A Mitochondrial Genome Database of Fish with an Analysis Pipeline for Environmental DNA Metabarcoding. (50 citations)
  • Evaluation of detection probabilities at the water-filtering and initial PCR steps in environmental DNA metabarcoding using a multispecies site occupancy model (38 citations)
  • Comparing local‐ and regional‐scale estimations of the diversity of stream fish using eDNA metabarcoding and conventional observation methods (33 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Genus
  • Gene

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Environmental DNA, Environmental science, Evolutionary biology, DNA sequencing and Fish species. His Environmental DNA research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Environmental monitoring, Polymerase chain reaction and Water sampling. Environmental science combines with fields such as Occupancy, Rapid assessment, Biological system, Site occupancy and Species detection in his investigation.

Borrowing concepts from Set, Masaki Miya weaves in ideas under Evolutionary biology. His DNA sequencing research incorporates elements of Standard curve, Illumina miseq, Real-time polymerase chain reaction and Computational biology. Masaki Miya has included themes like Sedimentary rock, Sediment and Environmental chemistry in his Fish species study.
