Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Animal science
  • Biochemistry

His scientific interests lie mostly in Animal science, Endocrinology, Internal medicine, Breed and Domestic sheep reproduction. The Animal science study combines topics in areas such as Pregnancy and Clostridium perfringens. His work on Body weight as part of general Endocrinology study is frequently connected to Production, Menhaden, Blood urea nitrogen and Pun, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them.

His Weanling study, which is part of a larger body of work in Internal medicine, is frequently linked to Fish products, bridging the gap between disciplines. Michael L. Thonney combines subjects such as Oxford Down sheep, Loin, Live weight and Carcass composition with his study of Breed. His studies in Domestic sheep reproduction integrate themes in fields like Toxin, Crossbreed and Reproduction.

His most cited work include:

  • Phenotypic and Phylogenetic Characterization of Ruminal Tannin-Tolerant Bacteria (68 citations)
  • Instraspecies Relationship between Fasting Heat Production and Body Weight: A Reevaluation of W.75 (61 citations)
  • Association between melatonin receptor 1A gene polymorphism and reproductive performance in Dorset ewes. (51 citations)

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

His main research concerns Animal science, Breed, Internal medicine, Endocrinology and Food science. Michael L. Thonney conducted interdisciplinary study in his works that combined Animal science and Composition. His Breed study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Weaning, Loin, Carcass composition, Veterinary medicine and Oxford Down sheep.

His work on Muscle hypertrophy and Testosterone as part of general Internal medicine research is frequently linked to Production, Blood urea nitrogen and Pun, bridging the gap between disciplines. His work in the fields of Endocrinology, such as Weanling, overlaps with other areas such as Fish products, Explant culture and Labeling index. The study incorporates disciplines such as Forage, Cholesterol, Mineral and Marbled meat in addition to Food science.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Animal science (59.42%)
  • Breed (21.74%)
  • Internal medicine (18.84%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2009-2020)?

  • Animal science (59.42%)
  • Domestic sheep reproduction (11.59%)
  • Reproduction (5.80%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Animal science, Domestic sheep reproduction, Reproduction, Quantitative trait locus and Breed. Animal science is closely attributed to Lactation in his research. His research in Domestic sheep reproduction intersects with topics in Nutritional status, Dry matter and Carbohydrate.

His research on Reproduction often connects related areas such as Zoology. His Breed research includes elements of Pregnancy, Incidence and Flock. His study in the field of Crossbreed also crosses realms of Backcrossing, Trait and Family-based QTL mapping.

Between 2009 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • Effect of prolactin, β-lactoglobulin, and κ-casein genotype on milk yield in East Friesian sheep (24 citations)
  • Genetic mapping of quantitative trait loci for aseasonal reproduction in sheep. (12 citations)
  • Genetic mapping of quantitative trait loci for milk production in sheep. (10 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Biochemistry
  • Genetics

Michael L. Thonney mainly focuses on Quantitative trait locus, Microsatellite, Animal breeding, Genetics and East Friesian sheep. His Quantitative trait locus research overlaps with other disciplines such as Trait, Backcrossing, Ovis, Family-based QTL mapping and Reproduction. His Microsatellite research incorporates a variety of disciplines, including Genetic marker, Crossbreed, Domestic sheep reproduction and Zoology.

His East Friesian sheep study spans across into fields like Beta-lactoglobulin, HaeIII, Prolactin, Milking and Casein. By researching both Beta-lactoglobulin and Animal science, Michael L. Thonney produces research that crosses academic boundaries.
