Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • Genome

Motoyuki Ashikari focuses on Mutant, Genetics, Gene, Cell biology and Biochemistry. His Mutant study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Gibberellin, Molecular biology, Signal transduction and Gene expression. His is involved in several facets of Genetics study, as is seen by his studies on Arabidopsis, Meristem and Primordium.

His Arabidopsis research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Genome, Gene family, Quantitative trait locus, Copalyl diphosphate synthase and Allele. His work in Gene addresses subjects such as Oxidase test, which are connected to disciplines such as Plant genetics, Mutation and Functional genomics. His studies deal with areas such as Regulation of gene expression, Oryza sativa and Stamen as well as Cell biology.

His most cited work include:

  • Cytokinin Oxidase Regulates Rice Grain Production (1208 citations)
  • Hd1, a Major Photoperiod Sensitivity Quantitative Trait Locus in Rice, Is Closely Related to the Arabidopsis Flowering Time Gene CONSTANS (1169 citations)
  • GIBBERELLIN INSENSITIVE DWARF1 encodes a soluble receptor for gibberellin (882 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Gene, Genetics, Oryza sativa, Mutant and Botany. His Gene study incorporates themes from Oxidase test and Grain number. Motoyuki Ashikari focuses mostly in the field of Oryza sativa, narrowing it down to topics relating to Domestication and, in certain cases, Oryza rufipogon.

His work carried out in the field of Mutant brings together such families of science as Gibberellin and Cell biology. Motoyuki Ashikari works mostly in the field of Botany, limiting it down to topics relating to Deepwater rice and, in certain cases, Plant stem, as a part of the same area of interest. His work deals with themes such as Oryza, Genotyping, Agronomy and Candidate gene, which intersect with Quantitative trait locus.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Gene (44.87%)
  • Genetics (43.59%)
  • Oryza sativa (28.21%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Genetics (43.59%)
  • Gene (44.87%)
  • Oryza sativa (28.21%)

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

Motoyuki Ashikari mostly deals with Genetics, Gene, Oryza sativa, Botany and Allele. He regularly ties together related areas like Cell biology in his Gene studies. The various areas that Motoyuki Ashikari examines in his Oryza sativa study include Guard cell, Domestication, Mutant and Fusicoccin.

In his study, Biotechnology is strongly linked to Genomics, which falls under the umbrella field of Mutant. Botany is closely attributed to Candidate gene in his study. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Cultivar, Function, Sterility, Panicle and Japonica.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Community recommendations on terminology and procedures used in flooding and low oxygen stress research (61 citations)
  • Ethylene-gibberellin signaling underlies adaptation of rice to periodic flooding (54 citations)
  • Loss of function at RAE2, a previously unidentified EPFL, is required for awnlessness in cultivated Asian rice. (47 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • Genome

Motoyuki Ashikari spends much of his time researching Genetics, Genotyping, Botany, Oryza sativa and Genotyping Techniques. In his work, DNA sequencing, Sanger sequencing, Whole genome sequencing and Biotechnology is strongly intertwined with Single-nucleotide polymorphism, which is a subfield of Genotyping. Botany is closely attributed to Gene in his work.

His study in the field of Oryza glaberrima also crosses realms of Primary alcohol. His study in Gibberellin is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Deepwater rice, Jasmonic acid, Shoot and Plant physiology. His Function research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Photosynthesis, Epicuticular wax, Complementation, Mutant and Horticulture.
