Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • Internal medicine

His scientific interests lie mostly in Genetics, Teladorsagia circumcincta, Immunology, Ostertagia and Fecundity. His research on Teladorsagia circumcincta frequently connects to adjacent areas such as Allele. His Allele research integrates issues from Major histocompatibility complex, Locus and Flock.

In general Immunology, his work in Haemonchus contortus, Immunity, Helminthiasis and Veterinary immunology is often linked to Common framework linking many areas of study. His Fecundity study combines topics in areas such as Zoology, Ecology, Larva, Plant disease resistance and Ostertagiasis. His Plant disease resistance research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Breed, Parasitic disease and Genetic variation.

His most cited work include:

  • Natural scrapie in a closed flock of Cheviot sheep occurs only in specific PrP genotypes (343 citations)
  • Revealing the history of sheep domestication using retrovirus integrations (251 citations)
  • REGULATION OF EGG PRODUCTION, WORM BURDEN, WORM LENGTH AND WORM FECUNDITY BY HOST RESPONSES IN SHEEP INFECTED WITH OSTERTAGIA CIRCUMCINCTA (230 citations)

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

Michael J. Stear mainly investigates Immunology, Genetics, Teladorsagia circumcincta, Veterinary medicine and Major histocompatibility complex. His study in Allele, Gene, Locus, Haplotype and Genetic variation is done as part of Genetics. His work in Teladorsagia circumcincta covers topics such as Animal science which are related to areas like Heritability.

His Veterinary medicine research incorporates elements of Feces, Parasite Egg Count and Pasture. His research investigates the connection between Nematode and topics such as Zoology that intersect with problems in Host. His research investigates the connection with Immunity and areas like Fecundity which intersect with concerns in Larva.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Immunology (33.02%)
  • Genetics (32.09%)
  • Teladorsagia circumcincta (22.79%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2012-2021)?

  • Genetics (32.09%)
  • Veterinary medicine (20.47%)
  • Immunology (33.02%)

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

Michael J. Stear mostly deals with Genetics, Veterinary medicine, Immunology, Teladorsagia circumcincta and Nematode. Genetic architecture, Allele, Major histocompatibility complex, Heritability and Single-nucleotide polymorphism are the core of his Genetics study. His Allele research includes elements of Antigen presentation and Locus.

His Veterinary medicine research incorporates themes from Feces, Parasite Egg Count, Juvenile, Fasciola hepatica and Livestock. Negative association, Study duration and Nitroxynil is closely connected to Animal science in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Teladorsagia circumcincta. His Nematode study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Biochemistry, Mucosal iga and Flock.

Between 2012 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Genome wide association and genomic prediction for growth traits in juvenile farmed Atlantic salmon using a high density SNP array (134 citations)
  • Genomic prediction of host resistance to sea lice in farmed Atlantic salmon populations (110 citations)
  • The host immune response to gastrointestinal nematode infection in sheep (79 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • Internal medicine

His main research concerns Genetics, Genetic architecture, Heritability, Immunology and Selective breeding. As part of his studies on Genetics, Michael J. Stear often connects relevant areas like Rhipicephalus microplus. His work carried out in the field of Genetic architecture brings together such families of science as Human leukocyte antigen, Histocompatibility, Allele, MHC Class II Gene and Single-nucleotide polymorphism.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Nematode and Breed. As part of one scientific family, Michael J. Stear deals mainly with the area of Immunoglobulin A, narrowing it down to issues related to the Mucus, and often Teladorsagia circumcincta. Michael J. Stear works mostly in the field of Teladorsagia circumcincta, limiting it down to topics relating to Litter and, in certain cases, Scottish Blackface, as a part of the same area of interest.
