Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Enzyme

His main research concerns Pilus, Genetics, Neisseria gonorrhoeae, Type IV pilus biogenesis and Pilus retraction. Michael Koomey is interested in Pilin, which is a branch of Pilus. Michael Koomey mostly deals with Gene in his studies of Genetics.

As part of the same scientific family, Michael Koomey usually focuses on Type IV pilus biogenesis, concentrating on Pilus assembly and intersecting with Open reading frame, Signal peptide, Protein family, Gliding motility and Myxococcus xanthus. Michael Koomey interconnects Mutagenesis, Periplasmic space and DNA in the investigation of issues within Pilus retraction. His study looks at the relationship between Organelle biogenesis and topics such as Organelle, which overlap with Cyclic nucleotide-binding domain.

His most cited work include:

  • PilT mutations lead to simultaneous defects in competence for natural transformation and twitching motility in piliated Neisseria gonorrhoeae (289 citations)
  • Components and dynamics of fiber formation define a ubiquitous biogenesis pathway for bacterial pili (233 citations)
  • Effects of recA Mutations on Pilus Antigenic Variation and Phase Transitions in Neisseria gonorrhoeae (184 citations)

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

Michael Koomey mostly deals with Pilus, Genetics, Neisseria gonorrhoeae, Gene and Pilin. Michael Koomey has researched Pilus in several fields, including Protein subunit, Mutant, Microbiology and Cell biology. His Neisseria gonorrhoeae study combines topics in areas such as Francisella tularensis, Nucleic acid sequence, Antigenicity and Virology.

His work carried out in the field of Gene brings together such families of science as Molecular biology and DNA. His Pilin research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Glycosylation, Fimbriae Proteins, Serine and Glycan. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Organelle and Cell membrane.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Pilus (70.97%)
  • Genetics (48.39%)
  • Neisseria gonorrhoeae (46.24%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Glycosylation (25.81%)
  • Genetics (48.39%)
  • Glycan (21.51%)

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

Michael Koomey mainly focuses on Glycosylation, Genetics, Glycan, Gene and Bacteria. His Glycosylation research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Archaea, Chaperone and Effector. His study looks at the intersection of Gene and topics like Neisseria with Glycosyltransferase Gene.

His work deals with themes such as Biophysics, Phosphotransferase and Serine, which intersect with Bacteria. The concepts of his Biophysics study are interwoven with issues in Pilus and Pilin. His study brings together the fields of Neisseria gonorrhoeae and Phase variation.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Sweet New Roles for Protein Glycosylation in Prokaryotes. (34 citations)
  • O-linked protein glycosylation in bacteria: snapshots and current perspectives (11 citations)
  • Structural and genetic analyses of glycan O-acetylation in a bacterial protein glycosylation system: evidence for differential effects on glycan chain length (10 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Enzyme

His primary scientific interests are in Glycosylation, Glycan, Bacteria, Bacterial protein and Biochemistry. The various areas that Michael Koomey examines in his Glycosylation study include Oligosaccharide, Protein glycosylation and Cell biology. His Oligosaccharide research includes themes of Glycosyltransferase, Acetylation, N-linked glycosylation and Glycoconjugate.

His Protein glycosylation research integrates issues from Archaea, Specific protein and Protein folding. His Cell biology research is mostly focused on the topic Cytoplasm.
