2018 - Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS)

Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Genetics

His primary areas of investigation include Genetics, Gene, Neurospora crassa, Genome and Fungal genetics. His work in Genomics, Whole genome sequencing, DNA methylation, Histone methyltransferase and Sequence assembly are all subfields of Genetics research. In his work, Minimal genome and Genome project is strongly intertwined with Schizosaccharomyces pombe, which is a subfield of Neurospora crassa.

His research in Genome intersects with topics in Plant disease resistance and Fusarium. His research integrates issues of Proteome, Secondary metabolism, Secondary metabolite and Botany in his study of Fungal genetics. He interconnects Genome evolution, Gene density, B chromosome, Fusarium solani and Gene mapping in the investigation of issues within Genome size.

His most cited work include:

  • The genome sequence of the filamentous fungus Neurospora crassa (1418 citations)
  • Sequencing of Aspergillus nidulans and comparative analysis with A. fumigatus and A. oryzae (1106 citations)
  • Comparative genomics reveals mobile pathogenicity chromosomes in Fusarium (1046 citations)

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

Michael Freitag mostly deals with Genetics, Gene, Neurospora crassa, Genome and Cell biology. His DNA methylation, Heterochromatin, Histone, Histone methylation and Chromatin investigations are all subjects of Genetics research. His Neurospora crassa research integrates issues from Molecular biology, Transcription factor and Fungal protein.

He usually deals with Genome and limits it to topics linked to Fungal genetics and Aspergillus nidulans and Sordaria macrospora. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Spitzenkörper and Hyphal tip. The study incorporates disciplines such as RNA and RNA silencing in addition to Neurospora.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (57.85%)
  • Gene (32.23%)
  • Neurospora crassa (28.93%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Genetics (57.85%)
  • Gene (32.23%)
  • Genome (20.66%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Genetics, Gene, Genome, Histone and B chromosome. Michael Freitag integrates many fields in his works, including Genetics and Genome instability. As a part of the same scientific study, Michael Freitag usually deals with the Gene, concentrating on Cell biology and frequently concerns with Transcription factor, Kinetochore, Centromere and Fungal protein.

Michael Freitag studies Genome, focusing on Genome evolution in particular. Genome stability and Bioinformatics is closely connected to Computational biology in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Histone. As a part of the same scientific family, Michael Freitag mostly works in the field of Chromosome, focusing on Histone methylation and, on occasion, Whole genome sequencing.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Knock-down of the methyltransferase Kmt6 relieves H3K27me3 and results in induction of cryptic and otherwise silent secondary metabolite gene clusters in Fusarium fujikuroi. (59 citations)
  • Neurospora chromosomes are organized by blocks of importin alpha-dependent heterochromatin that are largely independent of H3K9me3 (48 citations)
  • Extraordinary Genome Instability and Widespread Chromosome Rearrangements During Vegetative Growth (44 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Genetics

Genetics, Histone H3, Heterochromatin, Histone and Gene are his primary areas of study. Genetics is closely attributed to Aminoacid biosynthesis in his research. His Histone H3 research focuses on Heterochromatin protein 1 and how it connects with Chromosome conformation capture.

He works mostly in the field of Histone, limiting it down to concerns involving Histone methylation and, occasionally, Histone methyltransferase, Histone code, Epigenomics and Chromatin remodeling. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Neurospora crassa, Cell biology is strongly linked to Circadian clock. His Genome study combines topics in areas such as Botany, Trichoderma reesei, Mating type and Mating.
