Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • DNA

Masami Hasegawa mainly investigates Genetics, Phylogenetics, Phylogenetic tree, Genome and Mitochondrial DNA. His Phylogenetics research integrates issues from Evolutionary biology, Giardia lamblia, Maximum likelihood sequence estimation and Taxon. His Phylogenetic tree research incorporates themes from Zoology, Nucleic acid sequence and Peptide sequence.

His work carried out in the field of Mitochondrial DNA brings together such families of science as Models of DNA evolution and Molecular clock. Masami Hasegawa has researched Models of DNA evolution in several fields, including Australopithecus afarensis, Substitution model, Gorilla and Covarion. His Tree rearrangement research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Algorithm and DNA sequencing.

His most cited work include:

  • Dating of the human-ape splitting by a molecular clock of mitochondrial DNA. (6924 citations)
  • Multiple Comparisons of Log-Likelihoods with Applications to Phylogenetic Inference (3584 citations)
  • Evaluation of the maximum likelihood estimate of the evolutionary tree topologies from DNA sequence data, and the branching order in hominoidea (2869 citations)

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

His main research concerns Genetics, Phylogenetics, Phylogenetic tree, Evolutionary biology and Mitochondrial DNA. His Phylogenetics research includes themes of Maximum likelihood and Taxon, Ecology. His Phylogenetic tree research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Zoology and Ribosomal RNA.

His work is dedicated to discovering how Zoology, Molecular phylogenetics are connected with Tarsier and other disciplines. His Evolutionary biology research includes elements of Adaptation, Phylogenetic inference and Coelacanth. His work in Mitochondrial DNA covers topics such as Molecular clock which are related to areas like myr and Gorilla.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (47.28%)
  • Phylogenetics (48.91%)
  • Phylogenetic tree (47.83%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2007-2017)?

  • Genetics (47.28%)
  • Phylogenetics (48.91%)
  • Phylogenetic tree (47.83%)

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

Masami Hasegawa mainly focuses on Genetics, Phylogenetics, Phylogenetic tree, Genome and Zoology. His study in the field of Gene, Pseudogene, Nuclear gene and Ribosomal RNA is also linked to topics like Ancestor. His studies deal with areas such as Evolutionary biology, Biological dispersal, Nonsynonymous substitution and Southern Hemisphere as well as Phylogenetics.

His Phylogenetic tree study combines topics in areas such as Ecology, Apicoplast and Mitochondrial DNA. Masami Hasegawa interconnects genomic DNA and Camellia sinensis, Botany in the investigation of issues within Genome. His Zoology study combines topics in areas such as African elephant and Molecular phylogenetics.

Between 2007 and 2017, his most popular works were:

  • The Schistosoma japonicum genome reveals features of host-parasite interplay (557 citations)
  • The yak genome and adaptation to life at high altitude (423 citations)
  • Phylogenomic datasets provide both precision and accuracy in estimating the timescale of placental mammal phylogeny (362 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Genetics

His primary areas of investigation include Phylogenetics, Phylogenetic tree, Genome, Genetics and Gene. His Phylogenetics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Domestication, Biological dispersal, Mitochondrial DNA and Southern Hemisphere. As a part of the same scientific family, Masami Hasegawa mostly works in the field of Phylogenetic tree, focusing on Zoology and, on occasion, Strepsirrhini.

His studies in Genome integrate themes in fields like Adaptation and Effects of high altitude on humans. His work on Horizontal gene transfer as part of general Genetics research is frequently linked to Hypoxia, Cistanche deserticola and Cistanche, bridging the gap between disciplines. His work on Pseudogene and Nonsynonymous substitution as part of general Gene study is frequently linked to Cryptomeria, YAK and Metabolic efficiency, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science.
