Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Gene
  • DNA

Ancient DNA, Genetics, Evolutionary biology, DNA sequencing and Zoology are his primary areas of study. His Ancient DNA study combines topics in areas such as DNA extraction, Cave bear, Pleistocene, DNA and Domestication. Michael Hofreiter regularly ties together related areas like Neanderthal in his Genetics studies.

Michael Hofreiter interconnects Genetic diversity, Phylogenetics and Genome in the investigation of issues within Evolutionary biology. His DNA sequencing study incorporates themes from Cave, Restriction digest, Polymerase chain reaction and DNA damage. His work carried out in the field of Zoology brings together such families of science as Afrotheria, Notoungulata, Litopterna and Macrauchenia.

His most cited work include:

  • Genetic Analyses from Ancient DNA (948 citations)
  • Recalibrating Equus evolution using the genome sequence of an early Middle Pleistocene horse. (530 citations)
  • DNA sequences from multiple amplifications reveal artifacts induced by cytosine deamination in ancient DNA (529 citations)

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

Michael Hofreiter mainly focuses on Ancient DNA, Evolutionary biology, Ecology, Genetics and Zoology. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including DNA, DNA sequencing, Mitochondrial DNA, Domestication and Phylogeography. He has included themes like Computational biology and Polymerase chain reaction in his DNA sequencing study.

He has researched Evolutionary biology in several fields, including Phylogenetics, Clade, Lineage, Phylogenetic tree and Genome. The concepts of his Ecology study are interwoven with issues in Extinction, Holocene, Pleistocene and Genetic diversity. His Genetics study frequently draws parallels with other fields, such as Neanderthal.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ancient DNA (45.61%)
  • Evolutionary biology (39.65%)
  • Ecology (25.26%)

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

  • Evolutionary biology (39.65%)
  • Ancient DNA (45.61%)
  • Pleistocene (18.95%)

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

Michael Hofreiter mostly deals with Evolutionary biology, Ancient DNA, Pleistocene, Phylogenetic tree and Cave. His study in Evolutionary biology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Range, Phylogenetics, Clade and Genome, Nuclear gene. His Ancient DNA research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Zoology, Extinction, Mitochondrial DNA, Protein coding and Polymerase chain reaction.

His Pleistocene research integrates issues from Holarctic, Radiocarbon dating, Lineage and Asiatic wild dog. The Phylogenetic tree study combines topics in areas such as Bokermannohyla, Ecology, Equus and Hylidae. His studies in Ecology integrate themes in fields like Haplogroup and Holocene.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Tracking Five Millennia of Horse Management with Extensive Ancient Genome Time Series (79 citations)
  • Once lost, twice found: Combined analysis of ancient giant panda sequences characterises extinct clade (27 citations)
  • A western route of prehistoric human migration from Africa into the Iberian Peninsula (13 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Gene
  • DNA

Michael Hofreiter focuses on Evolutionary biology, Pleistocene, Genome, Gene flow and Ancient DNA. He focuses mostly in the field of Evolutionary biology, narrowing it down to matters related to Clade and, in some cases, Cave bear and Ursus. The study incorporates disciplines such as Phylogenetics, Lineage and Cave in addition to Pleistocene.

His Genome research includes themes of Botany, Citrullus lanatus, Genetic diversity, Sarcophagus and Domestication. His work deals with themes such as African origin, Human migration and Prehistory, Archaeology, Peninsula, which intersect with Gene flow. In his research, Michael Hofreiter performs multidisciplinary study on Ancient DNA and Demise.
