His main research concerns Genetics, Gene, Homeotic gene, Hox gene and Ultrabithorax. In his research on the topic of Genetics, Embryo and Regulation of gene expression is strongly related with Transplantation. His Homeotic gene research incorporates themes from Lophotrochozoa and ParaHox.
The various areas that Michael Akam examines in his Hox gene study include Protostome, Bilateria, Ecdysozoa and Crustacean. His Ultrabithorax research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Bithorax complex, Blastoderm, Anatomy and Gastrulation. His studies examine the connections between Gap gene and genetics, as well as such issues in engrailed, with regards to Evolutionary biology.
Michael Akam focuses on Genetics, Gene, Cell biology, Anatomy and Hox gene. His study in Ultrabithorax, Homeotic gene, Homeobox, Bithorax complex and Drosophila Protein falls under the purview of Genetics. His study in Homeotic gene focuses on Homeotic selector gene in particular.
He has included themes like Embryonic stem cell, Schistocerca, Yolk and engrailed in his Anatomy study. He interconnects Evolutionary biology, Clade, Antennapedia, Gene cluster and Bilateria in the investigation of issues within Hox gene. His research in Evolutionary biology intersects with topics in Zoology, Segmentation, Segmentation gene, Developmental biology and Insect.
Michael Akam spends much of his time researching Genetics, Gene, Evolutionary biology, Gene regulatory network and Cell biology. Michael Akam frequently studies issues relating to Arthropod and Genetics. His Evolutionary biology research includes elements of Embryonic Stage and Developmental biology.
His research investigates the connection between Gene regulatory network and topics such as Pair-rule gene that intersect with issues in Computational biology and Segment polarity gene. In the field of Cell biology, his study on Gap gene and Blastoderm overlaps with subjects such as Amnion. His Blastoderm research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Chromatin, Anatomy, Clogmia albipunctata and Hox gene.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Arthropod, Gene, Evolutionary biology, Genetics and Comparative genomics. His research investigates the link between Arthropod and topics such as Centipede that cross with problems in Regulation of gene expression, Mesoderm and Segmentation gene. His Gene study is mostly concerned with Genome and Gene family.
His studies in Evolutionary biology integrate themes in fields like Segmentation, Developmental biology, Pair-rule gene and Gene regulatory network. His study in Comparative genomics is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Zoology, Nuclear migration, Strigamia maritima and Embryogenesis. As a part of the same scientific study, Michael Akam usually deals with the Blastoderm, concentrating on Anatomy and frequently concerns with Body Patterning.
