Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Bacteria
  • Ecology

His primary scientific interests are in Genetics, Horizontal gene transfer, Gene, Integron and Ecology. His Horizontal gene transfer research includes elements of Plasmid, Evolvability and Transposable element. The study incorporates disciplines such as Computational biology and Microbiology in addition to Gene.

His study explores the link between Integron and topics such as Mobile genetic elements that cross with problems in Xanthomonas, Genome evolution and Organism. His Gene cassette research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Polymerase chain reaction and Environmental DNA. The concepts of his Antibiotic resistance study are interwoven with issues in Drug resistance and Biofilm.

His most cited work include:

  • Using the class 1 integron-integrase gene as a proxy for anthropogenic pollution (498 citations)
  • Spatial scaling of microbial eukaryote diversity (440 citations)
  • Continental-scale pollution of estuaries with antibiotic resistance genes (362 citations)

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

Michael R. Gillings mainly investigates Genetics, Ecology, Gene, Integron and Antibiotic resistance. His study involves Horizontal gene transfer, Polymerase chain reaction, Bacteria, Transposable element and Phylogenetics, a branch of Genetics. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Plasmid and Bacterial genome size.

His Ecology research includes elements of Biological dispersal and Antimicrobial. His Integron research is mostly focused on the topic Gene cassette. Michael R. Gillings has researched Antibiotic resistance in several fields, including Drug resistance and Resistance.

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Ecology (23.65%)
  • Antibiotic resistance (14.29%)
  • Resistome (8.37%)

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

His primary areas of study are Ecology, Antibiotic resistance, Resistome, Gene and Bacteria. His study on Ecosystem, Biodiversity and Pollution is often connected to Rural area as part of broader study in Ecology. He interconnects Antimicrobial, Horizontal gene transfer and Drug resistance in the investigation of issues within Antibiotic resistance.

Michael R. Gillings combines subjects such as Plasmid and Transposable element with his study of Horizontal gene transfer. Michael R. Gillings has included themes like Microbiome and Biotechnology in his Resistome study. His Gene research is included under the broader classification of Genetics.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Rhizosphere microorganisms can influence the timing of plant flowering. (76 citations)
  • Tracking antibiotic resistome during wastewater treatment using high throughput quantitative PCR (60 citations)
  • Soil biota, antimicrobial resistance and planetary health (48 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Bacteria
  • Ecology

Michael R. Gillings spends much of his time researching Antibiotic resistance, Resistome, Antibiotic resistance genes, Ecosystem and Genetics. His Antibiotic resistance research incorporates elements of Antimicrobial and Resistance. His Resistome study introduces a deeper knowledge of Gene.

Ecosystem is a subfield of Ecology that he investigates. His study in Integron, Horizontal gene transfer and Microbiome is done as part of Genetics. The various areas that Michael R. Gillings examines in his Horizontal gene transfer study include Gene cassette, Phylogenetic distribution, Plasmid and Bacterial genome size.
