Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Tick
  • DNA

Munir Aktas mostly deals with Virology, Tick, Theileria, Ovis and Babesia. His work carried out in the field of Virology brings together such families of science as Ribosomal RNA and Polymerase chain reaction. His Polymerase chain reaction research integrates issues from Rhipicephalus bursa, Theileria annulata and Theileria sergenti.

His Hyalomma and Hyalomma marginatum study, which is part of a larger body of work in Tick, is frequently linked to Agricultural land and Cartography, bridging the gap between disciplines. His Theileria study incorporates themes from 18S ribosomal RNA and Genotype. He focuses mostly in the field of Ovis, narrowing it down to matters related to Babesiosis and, in some cases, Herd, Tick infestation, Rhipicephalus and Giemsa stain.

His most cited work include:

  • Crimean-Congo Hemorrhagic Fever Virus: Genetic Analysis and Tick Survey in Turkey (96 citations)
  • A molecular survey of bovine Theileria parasites among apparently healthy cattle and with a note on the distribution of ticks in eastern Turkey. (87 citations)
  • Molecular detection of Theileria and Babesia infections in cattle. (87 citations)

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

His main research concerns Virology, Theileria, Babesia, Tick and Polymerase chain reaction. His Virology research includes elements of Ribosomal RNA and Gene. The concepts of his Theileria study are interwoven with issues in 18S ribosomal RNA, Theileria annulata, Tropical theileriosis and Genotype.

Munir Aktas has researched Babesia in several fields, including Babesiosis, Ovis and Pcr cloning. His study looks at the relationship between Tick and fields such as Nymph, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems. His work on Amplicon as part of general Polymerase chain reaction research is often related to Whole blood and Apicomplexa, thus linking different fields of science.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Virology (47.73%)
  • Theileria (37.50%)
  • Babesia (31.82%)

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

  • Genotype (12.50%)
  • Anaplasma (14.77%)
  • Genetic diversity (10.23%)

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

Munir Aktas spends much of his time researching Genotype, Anaplasma, Genetic diversity, Phylogenetic tree and Rhipicephalus microplus. The various areas that Munir Aktas examines in his Genotype study include Host, Amplicon and Nested polymerase chain reaction. Munir Aktas has included themes like Anaplasmosis, 16S ribosomal RNA, Molecular biology, Phylogenetics and Anaplasma marginale in his Anaplasma study.

As part of one scientific family, Munir Aktas deals mainly with the area of Molecular epidemiology, narrowing it down to issues related to the Theileria, and often Coinfection. Tick infestation is a subfield of Virology that he investigates. His Theileria orientalis research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Pcr cloning, Ribosomal RNA, Babesia and Theileria annulata.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Molecular detection of small ruminant piroplasmosis and first report of Theileria luwenshuni (Apicomplexa: Theileridae) in small ruminants of Pakistan. (4 citations)
  • Genetic diversity of Ehrlichia canis in dogs from Turkey inferred by TRP36 sequence analysis and phylogeny. (4 citations)
  • Bovine Babesiosis in Turkey: Impact, Current Gaps, and Opportunities for Intervention. (3 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Tick

His primary areas of investigation include Genotype, Rhipicephalus microplus, Public health, Intervention and Babesia. His Genotype study combines topics in areas such as Phylogenetics, Ehrlichia canis, Ehrlichiosis and Phylogenetic tree. His Rhipicephalus microplus study is concerned with Tick in general.
