Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • RNA

His scientific interests lie mostly in Virology, Hepatitis C virus, Molecular biology, Gene and Hepacivirus. His Virology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of RNA, Genetics and Genotype. His studies deal with areas such as Genotyping, Hepatitis C and Hepatitis as well as Hepatitis C virus.

Mickey S. Urdea has researched Molecular biology in several fields, including Growth factor and DNA. Within one scientific family, he focuses on topics pertaining to Liver biopsy under Branched DNA assay, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Interferon and Viral disease. His Virus research is mostly focused on the topic BDNA test.

His most cited work include:

  • Classification of hepatitis C virus into six major genotypes and a series of subtypes by phylogenetic analysis of the NS-5 region (1291 citations)
  • A proposed system for the nomenclature of hepatitis C viral genotypes (960 citations)
  • Significance of serum hepatitis C virus RNA levels in chronic hepatitis C (768 citations)

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

Mickey S. Urdea mainly focuses on Virology, Molecular biology, BDNA test, Hepatitis C virus and Biochemistry. The concepts of his Virology study are interwoven with issues in RNA and Genotype. His Genotype research focuses on Genome and how it connects with Phylogenetic tree and Phylogenetics.

As part of one scientific family, Mickey S. Urdea deals mainly with the area of Molecular biology, narrowing it down to issues related to the Gene, and often Yeast and Cell culture. His BDNA test research includes elements of Nucleic acid amplification technique, Liver biopsy, DNA and Alpha interferon. His Hepatitis C virus study incorporates themes from Interferon, Hepatitis C and Hepatitis.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Virology (28.57%)
  • Molecular biology (28.57%)
  • BDNA test (27.14%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 1996-2017)?

  • BDNA test (27.14%)
  • DNA (20.71%)
  • Internal medicine (15.00%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in BDNA test, DNA, Internal medicine, Nucleic acid and Molecular biology. His BDNA test research also covers Polymerase chain reaction and Hepatitis C virus studies. His work on Oligonucleotide as part of general DNA study is frequently linked to Signal amplification, bridging the gap between disciplines.

His Nucleic acid research includes themes of Combinatorial chemistry and Nucleic acid sequence. His Molecular biology research incorporates elements of RNA and Messenger RNA. He combines topics linked to Immunology with his work on Virology.

Between 1996 and 2017, his most popular works were:

  • A branched DNA signal amplification assay for quantification of nucleic acid targets below 100 molecules/ml (342 citations)
  • Activation of Tumor Necrosis Factor-α System in Chronic Hepatitis C Virus Infection (167 citations)
  • Development of a Type 2 Diabetes Risk Model From a Panel of Serum Biomarkers From the Inter99 Cohort (154 citations)

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

  • DNA
  • Gene
  • RNA

Mickey S. Urdea mainly investigates Internal medicine, Diabetes mellitus, RNA, In patient and Pathology. In Internal medicine, Mickey S. Urdea works on issues like Endocrinology, which are connected to Pathogenesis and Cytokine. His research integrates issues of Exon, Virus, Virology and Messenger RNA in his study of RNA.

His Virology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Resistance mutation and Mutation. His Viral load study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Molecular biology, Nucleic acid thermodynamics, Nucleotide and Oligonucleotide. His study in Hepatitis C virus is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Receptor and Hepatitis C.
