Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Ecology
  • Genus

Minoru Nakao mainly focuses on Zoology, Virology, Echinococcus, Taenia solium and Helminth genetics. His Zoology research incorporates elements of Domestication, Phylogenetics and Phylogenetic tree. His Virology research integrates issues from Borrelia burgdorferi, Serology, Antibody, Borrelia miyamotoi and Antigen.

Minoru Nakao interconnects Echinococcus multilocularis, Echinococcus granulosus and Cestoda in the investigation of issues within Echinococcus. His Echinococcus granulosus research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Veterinary medicine and Genotype. Minoru Nakao focuses mostly in the field of Taenia solium, narrowing it down to topics relating to Taenia and, in certain cases, Molecular biology.

His most cited work include:

  • A molecular phylogeny of the genus Echinococcus inferred from complete mitochondrial genomes (344 citations)
  • Genetic and Phenotypic Analysis of Borrelia miyamotoi sp. nov., Isolated from the Ixodid Tick Ixodes persulcatus, the Vector for Lyme Disease in Japan (266 citations)
  • Genetic characterization and phylogenetic position of Echinococcus felidis (Cestoda: Taeniidae) from the African lion. (198 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Virology, Zoology, Taenia solium, Echinococcus multilocularis and Taenia. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Serology, Borrelia burgdorferi and Antigen. His research in Zoology intersects with topics in Ecology, Phylogenetics and Phylogenetic tree.

The various areas that Minoru Nakao examines in his Taenia solium study include Genetics and Mitochondrial DNA. His Echinococcus multilocularis study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Molecular biology and Cestoda, Metacestode. His Taenia study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Taeniasis and Taenia asiatica.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Virology (27.56%)
  • Zoology (25.33%)
  • Taenia solium (24.44%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2013-2021)?

  • Zoology (25.33%)
  • Ecology (8.89%)
  • Cestoda (13.33%)

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

Minoru Nakao focuses on Zoology, Ecology, Cestoda, Trematoda and Phylogenetic tree. His research integrates issues of Genetic diversity, Intermediate host and Ribosomal DNA in his study of Zoology. He has included themes like Taenia solium, Biological dispersal and Taenia in his Ecology study.

His Cestoda study which covers Phylogenetics that intersects with Mitochondrial DNA, Taxonomy, Hymenolepis diminuta, Hymenolepiasis and Apodemus. His Borrelia burgdorferi research includes themes of Ixodes persulcatus and Virology. The study incorporates disciplines such as Echinococcus and Echinococcus granulosus in addition to Serology.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Human infections with Borrelia miyamotoi, Japan. (77 citations)
  • Tick surveillance for relapsing fever spirochete Borrelia miyamotoi in Hokkaido, Japan. (55 citations)
  • Cystic echinococcoses in Mongolia: molecular identification, serology and risk factors. (34 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Ecology
  • Genus

Minoru Nakao spends much of his time researching Zoology, Ecology, Phylogenetics, Taenia solium and Taeniasis. His Zoology study incorporates themes from Molecular epidemiology and Lineage, Phylogenetic tree. His work carried out in the field of Phylogenetics brings together such families of science as Taxon, Taeniidae, Cestoda and Biodiversity.

His studies in Cestoda integrate themes in fields like Nuclear DNA, Mitochondrial DNA and Allele. He has researched Taenia solium in several fields, including Neglected tropical diseases, Human migration, Taenia asiatica, Disjunct and Taenia. As part of one scientific family, Minoru Nakao deals mainly with the area of Taeniasis, narrowing it down to issues related to the Cysticercosis, and often Neurocysticercosis and Disease reservoir.
