What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Bacteria
  • Enzyme
  • Gene

Michael Wagner spends much of his time researching Microbiology, Bacteria, Ecology, Genetics and Phylogenetics. His work carried out in the field of Microbiology brings together such families of science as Nitrobacter, Nitrification, Activated sludge, Sewage treatment and Biofilm. His work deals with themes such as Biochemistry, Protozoa and Predation, which intersect with Bacteria.

His Ecology study incorporates themes from Evolutionary biology, Microbial ecology, Archaea and Microorganism. His 16S ribosomal RNA, Gene and Genome study in the realm of Genetics connects with subjects such as Fluorescence in situ hybridization. His Phylogenetics study also includes fields such as

  • Ribosomal RNA that connect with fields like Proteobacteria,
  • Poribacteria and related Metagenomics.

His most cited work include:

  • The Domain-specific Probe EUB338 is Insufficient for the Detection of all Bacteria: Development and Evaluation of a more Comprehensive Probe Set (1916 citations)
  • Phylogenetic Oligodeoxynucleotide Probes for the Major Subclasses of Proteobacteria: Problems and Solutions (1850 citations)
  • Sponge-Associated Microorganisms: Evolution, Ecology, and Biotechnological Potential (972 citations)

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

Michael Wagner focuses on Bacteria, Microbiology, Biochemistry, Ecology and Nitrification. Michael Wagner has researched Bacteria in several fields, including Activated sludge and Botany. Michael Wagner has included themes like Proteobacteria, Ribosomal RNA and Chlamydiae in his Microbiology study.

His Ribosomal RNA research integrates issues from Molecular biology and Molecular probe. His Ecology research incorporates elements of Metagenomics, Microbial ecology and Microbial population biology. His studies in Nitrification integrate themes in fields like Environmental chemistry, Nitrite and Archaea.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Bacteria (26.89%)
  • Microbiology (23.47%)
  • Biochemistry (16.63%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Environmental chemistry (14.91%)
  • Bacteria (26.89%)
  • Nitrification (15.65%)

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

His main research concerns Environmental chemistry, Bacteria, Nitrification, Nitrite and Archaea. His Environmental chemistry research includes themes of Activated sludge, Microorganism, Nitrous oxide, Ammonia and Substrate. His Bacteria study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Botany, Biochemistry, Carbon fixation, Oligonucleotide and Metagenomics.

His studies deal with areas such as Nitrogen fixation and Nitrogenase as well as Biochemistry. Comammox is the focus of his Nitrification research. His work in Nitrite addresses subjects such as Candidatus, which are connected to disciplines such as Sponge and Ianthella basta.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Global diversity and biogeography of bacterial communities in wastewater treatment plants. (122 citations)
  • Microbiome definition re-visited: old concepts and new challenges (77 citations)
  • An automated Raman-based platform for the sorting of live cells by functional properties. (65 citations)

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

  • Bacteria
  • Enzyme
  • Gene

His scientific interests lie mostly in Bacteria, Environmental chemistry, Comammox, Nitrification and Archaea. Michael Wagner studied Bacteria and Metagenomics that intersect with Gene family and Periplasmic space. His research on Comammox also deals with topics like

  • Biotransformation that connect with fields like Nitrospira inopinata, Microbiology, Cometabolism and Sewage treatment,
  • Hydroxylamine, which have a strong connection to Hydroxylation, Deamination, Ammonia monooxygenase and Stereochemistry.

His research in Nitrification focuses on subjects like Ammonia, which are connected to Nitrate, Nitrite and Abundance. His Archaea research incorporates themes from Organic matter, Activated sludge, Nomenclature, Taxon and Genome. His Activated sludge study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Microorganism and Biodiversity.
