Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • DNA

Michael D. Purugganan mainly focuses on Genetics, Domestication, Gene, Oryza sativa and Genetic variation. The various areas that Michael D. Purugganan examines in his Domestication study include Human ecology, Paleoethnobotany, Botany and Genomics of domestication. His Botany research includes elements of Evolutionary biology and Gene flow.

His work in Oryza sativa addresses subjects such as Japonica, which are connected to disciplines such as Subspecies, Selection coefficient, Selective sweep and Mutation. His Genetic variation course of study focuses on Allele and Cline and Locus. The concepts of his Single-nucleotide polymorphism study are interwoven with issues in Population bottleneck and Oryza.

His most cited work include:

  • Plant phenotypic plasticity in a changing climate (1055 citations)
  • The nature of selection during plant domestication (541 citations)
  • Evolution of crop species: genetics of domestication and diversification (516 citations)

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

Michael D. Purugganan mainly investigates Genetics, Gene, Evolutionary biology, Domestication and Genome. His Genetics study is mostly concerned with Genetic variation, Arabidopsis, Allele, Quantitative trait locus and Arabidopsis thaliana. His Genetic variation study incorporates themes from Nucleotide diversity, Single-nucleotide polymorphism and Population genetics.

His study in Evolutionary biology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Natural selection, Molecular evolution, Phylogenetic tree and Genomics. His Domestication research integrates issues from Plant genetics, Oryza sativa, Botany and Introgression. His Oryza sativa study combines topics in areas such as Japonica, Selective sweep and Reference genome.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (58.02%)
  • Gene (43.40%)
  • Evolutionary biology (38.21%)

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

  • Domestication (36.79%)
  • Evolutionary biology (38.21%)
  • Genome (31.13%)

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

His main research concerns Domestication, Evolutionary biology, Genome, Gene and Oryza sativa. His Domestication study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Oryza glaberrima, Genetic variation, Introgression and Genomics. Michael D. Purugganan has included themes like Taxon, Range and Center of origin in his Evolutionary biology study.

His Genome study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Mammillaria, Cactus, Genus and Sequence assembly. His Gene study is focused on Genetics in general. His Oryza sativa research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Japonica, Nanopore sequencing, Selective sweep and Reference genome.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The rice genome revolution: from an ancient grain to Green Super Rice (88 citations)
  • The rice genome revolution: from an ancient grain to Green Super Rice (88 citations)
  • Evolutionary Insights into the Nature of Plant Domestication (49 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • DNA

Michael D. Purugganan mostly deals with Domestication, Evolutionary biology, Gene, Genomics and Introgression. His studies deal with areas such as Oryza and Genome as well as Domestication. Michael D. Purugganan interconnects Global population, Plant species and Genetic variation in the investigation of issues within Genome.

His work deals with themes such as Range, Plant genetics, Single-nucleotide polymorphism and Paleoethnobotany, which intersect with Evolutionary biology. His Gene research is under the purview of Genetics. Michael D. Purugganan combines subjects such as Zoology, Gene flow and Crop wild relative with his study of Introgression.
