Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Mutation

Her main research concerns Molecular biology, Genetics, Gene, Cell biology and Mutation. Nancy A. Jenkins combines subjects such as Complementary DNA, cDNA library, Peptide sequence and Receptor, Cell surface receptor with her study of Molecular biology. Her is doing research in Genome, Transgene, Recombineering, Insertional mutagenesis and Genetically modified mouse, both of which are found in Genetics.

Her research integrates issues of Ubiquitin, Neurodegeneration and Amyloid precursor protein in her study of Transgene. Her Gene research focuses on Gene product, Gene expression, Locus, Gene mapping and Candidate gene. Her Cell biology study which covers Mutant that intersects with Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.

Her most cited work include:

  • The human mutator gene homolog MSH2 and its association with hereditary nonpolyposis colon cancer. (2569 citations)
  • An efficient recombination system for chromosome engineering in Escherichia coli (1586 citations)
  • Generalized lymphoproliferative disease in mice, caused by a point mutation in the fas ligand (1441 citations)

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

Genetics, Gene, Molecular biology, Gene mapping and Cell biology are her primary areas of study. Her research related to Locus, Chromosome, Genome, Transcription factor and Genetic linkage might be considered part of Genetics. Her works in Exon, Homology, Gene expression, Intron and Nucleic acid sequence are all subjects of inquiry into Gene.

Her work deals with themes such as Genetically modified mouse, Transgene, Complementary DNA, Peptide sequence and Regulation of gene expression, which intersect with Molecular biology. Genetically modified mouse and Mutant are commonly linked in her work. Her studies link Fluorescence in situ hybridization with Gene mapping.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (49.30%)
  • Gene (46.25%)
  • Molecular biology (44.22%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2005-2021)?

  • Cancer research (10.04%)
  • Genetics (49.30%)
  • Gene (46.25%)

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

Her primary areas of study are Cancer research, Genetics, Gene, Mutagenesis and Transposon mutagenesis. Her research integrates issues of Mutation, Carcinogenesis, Tumor suppressor gene, Transcription factor and Transfection in her study of Cancer research. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Molecular biology and Regulation of gene expression.

Her Molecular biology study combines topics in areas such as T cell and Genetically modified mouse. Her Regulation of gene expression research focuses on Downregulation and upregulation and how it connects with Cell biology. Her studies in Genome and Human genome are all subfields of Gene research.

Between 2005 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Pancreatic cancer genomes reveal aberrations in axon guidance pathway genes (1400 citations)
  • Onset and Progression in Inherited ALS Determined by Motor Neurons and Microglia (1323 citations)
  • Correction of X-linked chronic granulomatous disease by gene therapy, augmented by insertional activation of MDS1-EVI1, PRDM16 or SETBP1. (1039 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Mutation

Her scientific interests lie mostly in Genetics, Cancer research, Cell biology, Mutagenesis and Cancer. Transposable element, Gene, Candidate gene, Transposase and Insertional mutagenesis are among the areas of Genetics where Nancy A. Jenkins concentrates her study. Her Cancer research research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Pancreatic cancer, Immunology, KRAS and Signal transduction, MAPK/ERK pathway.

Nancy A. Jenkins has researched Cell biology in several fields, including Acquired immune system, Molecular biology, Hippocampal formation and Melanocyte. Her Molecular biology research integrates issues from Nigrostriatal pathway, Transgene, T cell, Transcription factor and Lymphocyte. Her work in Cancer covers topics such as Mutation which are related to areas like Carcinogenesis, Degenerative disease, Cell type and Microglia.
