Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Bacteria
  • DNA

His primary areas of investigation include Genetics, Microbiology, Halobacteriales, Archaeal Viruses and Archaea. His work in Haloferax volcanii, Gene, Halobacterium, Natrialba and DNA gyrase are all subfields of Genetics research. Michael L. Dyall-Smith interconnects Ribosomal RNA, Transformation and Haloquadratum in the investigation of issues within Microbiology.

His studies in Archaeal Viruses integrate themes in fields like Host and Haloarcula. Michael L. Dyall-Smith works in the field of Archaea, namely Haloarchaea. His work carried out in the field of Genome brings together such families of science as Virus, Peptide sequence and DNA.

His most cited work include:

  • Location of the major antigenic sites involved in rotavirus serotype-specific neutralization. (204 citations)
  • Combined use of cultivation-dependent and cultivation-independent methods indicates that members of most haloarchaeal groups in an Australian crystallizer pond are cultivable. (167 citations)
  • Haloquadratum walsbyi gen. nov., sp. nov., the square haloarchaeon of Walsby, isolated from saltern crystallizers in Australia and Spain (146 citations)

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

Michael L. Dyall-Smith mainly investigates Genetics, Gene, Microbiology, Genome and Virology. His is doing research in Nucleic acid sequence, Plasmid, Haloferax, Haloferax volcanii and Virus, both of which are found in Genetics. His research in Gene tackles topics such as Molecular biology which are related to areas like Peptide sequence.

His research integrates issues of Halophile, Haloarchaea, Archaea and 16S ribosomal RNA in his study of Microbiology. His Genome research integrates issues from ORFS and Haloarcula. His Virology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Epitope and Glycoprotein.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (53.15%)
  • Gene (39.16%)
  • Microbiology (21.68%)

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

  • Genetics (53.15%)
  • Gene (39.16%)
  • Whole genome sequencing (16.08%)

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

Michael L. Dyall-Smith spends much of his time researching Genetics, Gene, Whole genome sequencing, Genome and Plasmid. His research related to Haloferax, Halobacterium salinarum, Virus, Gene expression and Transposable element might be considered part of Genetics. His Haloferax study combines topics in areas such as Host, Haloferax volcanii, Archaeal Viruses and Strain.

His Genome study which covers Nucleic acid sequence that intersects with Gene Annotation, Intergenic region and Direct repeat. The various areas that Michael L. Dyall-Smith examines in his Plasmid study include Salmonella enterica and Microbiology. His work in Comparative genomics addresses subjects such as Computational biology, which are connected to disciplines such as Archaea.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • NaCl-saturated brines are thermodynamically moderate, rather than extreme, microbial habitats. (25 citations)
  • pSTM6-275, a Conjugative IncHI2 Plasmid of Salmonella enterica That Confers Antibiotic and Heavy-Metal Resistance under Changing Physiological Conditions. (20 citations)
  • Genome Sequence of an Australian Monophasic Salmonella enterica subsp. enterica Typhimurium Isolate (TW-Stm6) Carrying a Large Plasmid with Multiple Antimicrobial Resistance Genes. (13 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Bacteria
  • DNA

His scientific interests lie mostly in Plasmid, Halobacterium salinarum, Genetics, Whole genome sequencing and Gene. His work deals with themes such as Salmonella enterica and Microbiology, which intersect with Plasmid. His Microbiology research includes themes of Escherichia coli, Salmonella enterica subsp. enterica and Virulence.

His research in Halobacterium salinarum intersects with topics in Sequence identity, Type and Chromosome. His study in Genome and Nucleic acid sequence falls within the category of Gene. His studies deal with areas such as Tetracycline and 16S ribosomal RNA as well as Mobile genetic elements.
