1981 - Fellow of Alfred P. Sloan Foundation
His main research concerns Zebrafish, Genetics, Anatomy, Cell biology and Embryo. Zebrafish is the subject of his research, which falls under Gene. His research on Genetics often connects related topics like Computational biology.
His research integrates issues of Homeobox, Gastrulation, Ectoderm, Embryogenesis and Motor neuron in his study of Anatomy. His Embryo study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Plasmid, Transgene, Growth cone, Axon and Spinal cord. His Gene duplication research includes elements of Pseudogene and Hox gene.
Monte Westerfield mainly focuses on Zebrafish, Genetics, Cell biology, Computational biology and Gene. In his research, Mutation is intimately related to Mutant, which falls under the overarching field of Zebrafish. His Genetics research focuses on Ontology and how it relates to Annotation.
The concepts of his Annotation study are interwoven with issues in Controlled vocabulary and World Wide Web. His work focuses on many connections between Cell biology and other disciplines, such as Fibroblast growth factor, that overlap with his field of interest in Hindbrain. His research integrates issues of Model organism and Bioinformatics in his study of Computational biology.
His primary areas of investigation include Zebrafish, Genetics, Computational biology, Gene and Model organism. His Zebrafish research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Hair cell, Mutant, Disease, Cell biology and Usher syndrome. The study incorporates disciplines such as Ataxia and Rare disease in addition to Genetics.
His Computational biology research incorporates themes from DNA sequencing, Functional studies, Novel gene and Partition. His work on Phenotype and Primordium is typically connected to Testis determining factor and Respiratory chain as part of general Gene study, connecting several disciplines of science. His research in Model organism focuses on subjects like Genome, which are connected to Data science.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Genetics, Gene, Zebrafish Information Network genome database, Model organism and Computational biology. His research in Genetics intersects with topics in Ataxia and Rare disease. The study of Zebrafish and Genome are components of his Zebrafish Information Network genome database research.
His Zebrafish research is mostly focused on the topic Zebrafish Model Organism Database. His Genome research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Variety, Data access, Workflow and Data science. His Model organism study combines topics in areas such as Exome sequencing, Disease pathogenesis, Functional genomics, Genomics and Human genetics.
