Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • Internal medicine

His primary scientific interests are in Genetics, Genome-wide association study, Schizophrenia, Single-nucleotide polymorphism and Bipolar disorder. His study connects Psychosis and Genetics. Michael John Owen combines subjects such as Odds ratio, Case-control study and Alzheimer's disease, Apolipoprotein E, Disease with his study of Genome-wide association study.

His Schizophrenia study combines topics in areas such as Exome sequencing and Autism, Autism spectrum disorder. His research in Single-nucleotide polymorphism tackles topics such as Allele frequency which are related to areas like Genotyping. His research in Bipolar disorder intersects with topics in Major depressive disorder, Genetic heterogeneity, ANK3 and Zinc finger protein 804A.

His most cited work include:

  • Genome-wide association study of 14,000 cases of seven common diseases and 3,000 shared controls (7922 citations)
  • Biological insights from 108 schizophrenia-associated genetic loci (4834 citations)
  • Segregation of a missense mutation in the amyloid precursor protein gene with familial Alzheimer's disease. (3929 citations)

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

Michael John Owen mainly investigates Genetics, Psychiatry, Schizophrenia, Psychosis and Bipolar disorder. His study in Genetics concentrates on Allele, Gene, Single-nucleotide polymorphism, Genetic association and Genome-wide association study. His Genome-wide association study study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Disease and Case-control study.

His research investigates the connection between Psychiatry and topics such as Clinical psychology that intersect with problems in Cognition. His Schizophrenia research incorporates elements of Internal medicine, Autism, Intellectual disability and Copy-number variation. His studies in Bipolar disorder integrate themes in fields like Major depressive disorder and Proband.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (50.04%)
  • Psychiatry (23.22%)
  • Schizophrenia (23.30%)

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

  • Schizophrenia (23.30%)
  • Genetics (50.04%)
  • Psychiatry (23.22%)

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

Michael John Owen mainly focuses on Schizophrenia, Genetics, Psychiatry, Copy-number variation and Genome-wide association study. His study in Schizophrenia is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Bipolar disorder, Psychosis, Autism, Clinical psychology and Cohort. His study brings together the fields of Schizophrenia and Genetics.

His Copy-number variation research focuses on subjects like Autism spectrum disorder, which are linked to Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. The Genome-wide association study study combines topics in areas such as Case-control study, Genetic association, Disease and Genetic architecture. In his study, Imputation is strongly linked to Computational biology, which falls under the umbrella field of Gene.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Genome-wide association analyses identify 44 risk variants and refine the genetic architecture of major depression (1131 citations)
  • Analysis of shared heritability in common disorders of the brain (726 citations)
  • Common schizophrenia alleles are enriched in mutation-intolerant genes and in regions under strong background selection (685 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • Internal medicine

His scientific interests lie mostly in Genome-wide association study, Schizophrenia, Genetics, Psychiatry and Copy-number variation. His Genome-wide association study research includes elements of Case-control study, Genetic association, Disease and Genetic architecture. Michael John Owen combines subjects such as Bioinformatics, Bipolar disorder, Psychosis, Clinical psychology and Neuroscience with his study of Schizophrenia.

The concepts of his Bipolar disorder study are interwoven with issues in Major depressive disorder and Neuroticism. His work in Gene, Allele frequency, Exome sequencing, Missense mutation and Exome are all subfields of Genetics research. His work deals with themes such as Odds ratio, Multiple comparisons problem, Biobank, Intellectual disability and Gene duplication, which intersect with Copy-number variation.
