Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Genetics

Genetics, Genome-wide association study, Single-nucleotide polymorphism, Heritability and Genetic association are his primary areas of study. His Locus, Quantitative trait locus, Candidate gene, Allele and Gene investigations are all subjects of Genetics research. His work deals with themes such as Schizophrenia, Bipolar disorder, Internal medicine, Disease and Genetic architecture, which intersect with Genome-wide association study.

His Single-nucleotide polymorphism study combines topics in areas such as Eye color, Case-control study and Polymorphism. The study incorporates disciplines such as Demography, Genetic correlation, Genetic variation and Human height in addition to Heritability. He usually deals with Twin study and limits it to topics linked to Developmental psychology and Personality, Genetic determinism and Risk factor.

His most cited work include:

  • Common SNPs explain a large proportion of the heritability for human height (3140 citations)
  • Biological, clinical and population relevance of 95 loci for blood lipids (2804 citations)
  • Association analyses of 249,796 individuals reveal 18 new loci associated with body mass index (2348 citations)

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

Nicholas G. Martin mostly deals with Genetics, Genome-wide association study, Heritability, Single-nucleotide polymorphism and Twin study. Locus, Allele, Gene, Quantitative trait locus and Candidate gene are subfields of Genetics in which his conducts study. Nicholas G. Martin has included themes like Schizophrenia, Bioinformatics, Disease, Genetic association and Genetic architecture in his Genome-wide association study study.

His study looks at the intersection of Heritability and topics like Demography with Cohort and Body mass index. His Single-nucleotide polymorphism study frequently draws connections to adjacent fields such as Internal medicine. His research integrates issues of Developmental psychology and Psychiatry in his study of Twin study.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (37.70%)
  • Genome-wide association study (27.98%)
  • Heritability (16.52%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Genome-wide association study (27.98%)
  • Genetics (37.70%)
  • Clinical psychology (8.34%)

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

Nicholas G. Martin mainly focuses on Genome-wide association study, Genetics, Clinical psychology, Genetic association and Depression. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Meta-analysis, Schizophrenia and Genetic architecture. His study ties his expertise on Bipolar disorder together with the subject of Genetics.

His research investigates the link between Clinical psychology and topics such as Major depressive disorder that cross with problems in Genetic heterogeneity. His study in Genetic association is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Evolutionary biology, Heritability and Mendelian randomization. As part of his studies on Heritability, he frequently links adjacent subjects like Demography.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Genome-wide association analyses identify 44 risk variants and refine the genetic architecture of major depression (1131 citations)
  • Analysis of shared heritability in common disorders of the brain (726 citations)
  • Common schizophrenia alleles are enriched in mutation-intolerant genes and in regions under strong background selection (685 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Genetics

Nicholas G. Martin spends much of his time researching Genome-wide association study, Genetics, Genetic association, Schizophrenia and Genetic architecture. The subject of his Genome-wide association study research is within the realm of Single-nucleotide polymorphism. Nicholas G. Martin interconnects Methylation, Allele and Cannabis in the investigation of issues within Single-nucleotide polymorphism.

His Schizophrenia research includes elements of Major depressive disorder and Depression. His studies deal with areas such as Cerebral cortex, Cortex and Evolutionary biology as well as Genetic architecture. His Heritability study incorporates themes from Genetic variation and Genotype.
