Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Bacteria
  • DNA

His primary scientific interests are in Genetics, Vibrio cholerae, Microbiology, Gene and Genome. His work on Genetics is being expanded to include thematically relevant topics such as Computational biology. The various areas that Matthew K. Waldor examines in his Vibrio cholerae study include Cholera, Genetic transfer, Cholera toxin and Mutant.

His Microbiology research integrates issues from Bacteriophage, Escherichia coli, Virology and Virulence. His Virulence research incorporates elements of In vitro growth, In vitro and Pathogen. His Genome study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Phylogenetics, DNA sequencing and DNA Restriction-Modification Enzymes.

His most cited work include:

  • Lysogenic conversion by a filamentous phage encoding cholera toxin. (1454 citations)
  • Limited heterogeneity of T cell receptors from lymphocytes mediating autoimmune encephalomyelitis allows specific immune intervention (846 citations)
  • Origins of the E. coli Strain Causing an Outbreak of Hemolytic–Uremic Syndrome in Germany (699 citations)

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

Matthew K. Waldor mostly deals with Microbiology, Vibrio cholerae, Genetics, Virulence and Gene. His work deals with themes such as Bacteria, Shiga toxin, Escherichia coli and Prophage, which intersect with Microbiology. His study in Vibrio cholerae is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Cholera, Cholera toxin, Mutant and Vibrionaceae.

His Cholera research includes themes of Outbreak and Cholera vaccine. His studies in Genome, Plasmid, Transposable element, Mobile genetic elements and Chromosome are all subfields of Genetics research. The concepts of his Virulence study are interwoven with issues in Vibrio parahaemolyticus, Regulation of gene expression, Diarrhea and Colonization.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Microbiology (78.51%)
  • Vibrio cholerae (74.78%)
  • Genetics (52.41%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Microbiology (78.51%)
  • Vibrio cholerae (74.78%)
  • Pathogen (31.58%)

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

Matthew K. Waldor spends much of his time researching Microbiology, Vibrio cholerae, Pathogen, Cell biology and Gene. Matthew K. Waldor has included themes like Listeria monocytogenes, Escherichia coli, Immune system and Virulence in his Microbiology study. To a larger extent, he studies Bacteria with the aim of understanding Vibrio cholerae.

His work focuses on many connections between Pathogen and other disciplines, such as Pathogenesis, that overlap with his field of interest in Shigella flexneri. His Cell biology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Mutagenesis, Peptidoglycan, Cell envelope, Cytoskeleton and Translation. His study in Genome, Regulon and Mutant falls under the purview of Gene.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The RNA degradosome promotes tRNA quality control through clearance of hypomodified tRNA (27 citations)
  • The RNA degradosome promotes tRNA quality control through clearance of hypomodified tRNA (27 citations)
  • Transposon-insertion sequencing screens unveil requirements for EHEC growth and intestinal colonization (19 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Bacteria
  • DNA

Vibrio cholerae, Bacteria, Microbiology, Cell biology and Gene are his primary areas of study. His work carried out in the field of Vibrio cholerae brings together such families of science as Biochemistry, Immunity, Escherichia coli and Transfer RNA, TRNA modification. His Bacteria research includes elements of Cell wall and Cell shape.

Matthew K. Waldor is interested in Pathogen, which is a field of Microbiology. His research in Gene is mostly focused on Genome. His Genome study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Mutation, Plasmid and Regulon.
