Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Virus
  • Ecology
  • Zoology

Virology, Virus, Encephalitis, Flavivirus and Outbreak are his primary areas of study. His Virology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Culex and Antibody. Nicholas Komar has researched Culex in several fields, including Vector, Viral shedding and Sparrow.

His studies deal with areas such as Veterinary medicine and Epidemiology as well as Encephalitis. His work in the fields of Saint Louis encephalitis overlaps with other areas such as Reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction. The study incorporates disciplines such as Disease reservoir, Myocarditis and Meningoencephalitis in addition to Outbreak.

His most cited work include:

  • Origin of the West Nile Virus Responsible for an Outbreak of Encephalitis in the Northeastern United States (1339 citations)
  • Experimental infection of North American birds with the New York 1999 strain of West Nile virus. (925 citations)
  • Rapid Detection of West Nile Virus from Human Clinical Specimens, Field-Collected Mosquitoes, and Avian Samples by a TaqMan Reverse Transcriptase-PCR Assay (910 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Virology, Virus, West Nile virus, Flavivirus and Arbovirus. His Virology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Serology and Antibody. Virus is closely attributed to Transmission in his work.

His West Nile virus study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Veterinary medicine, Bird Diseases and Feather. His Flavivirus research includes elements of Culex, Strigiformes, Flavivirus Infections and Public health. He combines subjects such as Zoology and Overwintering, Ecology with his study of Arbovirus.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Virology (57.72%)
  • Virus (34.15%)
  • West Nile virus (25.20%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2013-2020)?

  • Virology (57.72%)
  • Arbovirus (23.58%)
  • Zoology (21.14%)

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

Nicholas Komar focuses on Virology, Arbovirus, Zoology, Virus and Antibody. The study of Virology is intertwined with the study of Serology in a number of ways. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Arbovirus, Sparrow, Quiscalus and Seroprevalence is strongly linked to Outbreak.

Nicholas Komar has included themes like Range, Culex, Branta and Taxon in his Zoology study. His work in Yellow fever and West Nile virus are all subfields of Virus research. Nicholas Komar has researched Flavivirus in several fields, including Encephalitis, St louis encephalitis, Disease epidemiology and Rufous hornero.

Between 2013 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • Serological Evidence of Widespread Circulation of West Nile Virus and Other Flaviviruses in Equines of the Pantanal, Brazil (48 citations)
  • Nhumirim virus, a novel flavivirus isolated from mosquitoes from the Pantanal, Brazil (30 citations)
  • Serological Investigation of Heartland Virus (Bunyaviridae: Phlebovirus) Exposure in Wild and Domestic Animals Adjacent to Human Case Sites in Missouri 2012-2013 (26 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Virus
  • Zoology

His primary areas of study are Virology, Virus, Veterinary medicine, Titer and Heartland virus. His Virology study frequently links to other fields, such as Serology. His work in Veterinary medicine is not limited to one particular discipline; it also encompasses Viremia.

His studies deal with areas such as Enzootic, Amblyomma americanum and Wildlife as well as Heartland virus. His Arbovirus research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Venezuelan equine encephalitis virus, Whole blood and Antibody, Neutralization. The various areas that Nicholas Komar examines in his Vero cell study include Cercopithecus aethiops, Culex and Flavivirus.
