Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Enzyme
  • Gene
  • DNA

Mycobacterium smegmatis, Biochemistry, Bacterial outer membrane, Porin and Microbiology are his primary areas of study. Michael Niederweis has researched Mycobacterium smegmatis in several fields, including Biophysics and Mutant. His research investigates the link between Mutant and topics such as Virulence that cross with problems in Siderophore.

Michael Niederweis combines subjects such as Protein structure, Membrane, General bacterial porin family and Signal peptide with his study of Porin. His studies deal with areas such as Bacteria, Periplasmic space and Mycobacterium tuberculosis as well as Microbiology. His work on Mycobacterium bovis as part of general Mycobacterium tuberculosis study is frequently connected to Population, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them.

His most cited work include:

  • Reading DNA at single-nucleotide resolution with a mutant MspA nanopore and phi29 DNA polymerase (594 citations)
  • Disclosure of the mycobacterial outer membrane: cryo-electron tomography and vitreous sections reveal the lipid bilayer structure. (439 citations)
  • Nanopore DNA sequencing with MspA (404 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Mycobacterium smegmatis, Biochemistry, Microbiology, Porin and Mycobacterium tuberculosis. His Mycobacterium smegmatis research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in RNA, Mutant, Gene expression, Gene and Molecular biology. His Biochemistry study frequently involves adjacent topics like Mycolic acid.

His Microbiology study which covers Bacteria that intersects with Extraction. To a larger extent, Michael Niederweis studies Bacterial outer membrane with the aim of understanding Porin. His Mycobacterium tuberculosis research incorporates themes from Secretion, Efflux and Virulence.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Mycobacterium smegmatis (53.29%)
  • Biochemistry (41.92%)
  • Microbiology (40.12%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Mycobacterium tuberculosis (32.34%)
  • Biochemistry (41.92%)
  • Microbiology (40.12%)

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

Michael Niederweis spends much of his time researching Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Biochemistry, Microbiology, Mutant and Bacterial outer membrane. His Mycobacterium tuberculosis research includes themes of Toxin, Heme, Macrophage and Bacteria. His Microbiology research includes elements of Immune system, Tuberculosis, Efflux, Programmed cell death and NAD+ kinase.

Many of his research projects under Mutant are closely connected to Mycobactin with Mycobactin, tying the diverse disciplines of science together. His Bacterial outer membrane study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Hemoglobin and Mycobacterium smegmatis. He works mostly in the field of Mycobacterium smegmatis, limiting it down to topics relating to Nanopore and, in certain cases, Lipid bilayer, Peptide sequence, Protein purification and Molecular biology, as a part of the same area of interest.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Mycobacteria, metals, and the macrophage (96 citations)
  • Separable roles for Mycobacterium tuberculosis ESX-3 effectors in iron acquisition and virulence (87 citations)
  • The tuberculosis necrotizing toxin kills macrophages by hydrolyzing NAD. (63 citations)

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

  • Enzyme
  • Gene
  • DNA

His primary scientific interests are in Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Microbiology, Tuberculosis, Intracellular and Porin. His studies deal with areas such as Cytosol, Bacteria, Efflux, Cell biology and Plasma membrane repair as well as Mycobacterium tuberculosis. His research investigates the connection between Bacteria and topics such as Periplasmic space that intersect with problems in Mutant and Virulence.

His Microbiology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Programmed cell death and Immune system. His Intracellular study deals with the bigger picture of Biochemistry. His research investigates the connection between Porin and topics such as Sphingomyelin that intersect with issues in Bacterial outer membrane.
