Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • Statistics

His main research concerns Genetics, Evolutionary biology, Genome, Haplotype and Human genome. His research related to Denisovan, Single-nucleotide polymorphism, Genetic association, Population stratification and Genome-wide association study might be considered part of Genetics. His study in Evolutionary biology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Statistic, Ancient DNA, Test statistic and Genomics.

His studies in Genome integrate themes in fields like Computational biology and Hominidae. His Haplotype research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in MSMB and Prostate cancer. His work deals with themes such as Natural selection and Biological dispersal, which intersect with Human genome.

His most cited work include:

  • Principal components analysis corrects for stratification in genome-wide association studies (7332 citations)
  • PGC-1alpha-responsive genes involved in oxidative phosphorylation are coordinately downregulated in human diabetes (5604 citations)
  • A haplotype map of the human genome (5144 citations)

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

Nick Patterson mostly deals with Genetics, Evolutionary biology, Genome, Genome-wide association study and Single-nucleotide polymorphism. His Genetics study which covers Genetic admixture that intersects with Gene mapping. The study incorporates disciplines such as Selection, Genomics, Neanderthal, Denisovan and Gene flow in addition to Evolutionary biology.

The concepts of his Neanderthal study are interwoven with issues in Ancient DNA and Neanderthal genome project. His Genome-wide association study study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Population stratification, Case-control study, Disease, Genetic association and Computational biology. His study in Single-nucleotide polymorphism is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Quantitative trait locus and Heritability.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (52.33%)
  • Evolutionary biology (28.68%)
  • Genome (18.60%)

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

  • Ancient DNA (17.05%)
  • Evolutionary biology (28.68%)
  • Genetics (52.33%)

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

Nick Patterson mainly focuses on Ancient DNA, Evolutionary biology, Genetics, Steppe and Ethnology. The various areas that Nick Patterson examines in his Ancient DNA study include Radiocarbon dating, Archaeology, Contamination, Statistics and Nuclear DNA. His Evolutionary biology study incorporates themes from Genome-wide association study, Genome, Genomics, Neanderthal and Gene flow.

His study ties his expertise on Missing data together with the subject of Genetics. His studies examine the connections between Steppe and genetics, as well as such issues in Mediterranean climate, with regards to Immigration and Balearic islands. In Ethnology, Nick Patterson works on issues like Prehistory, which are connected to Population genetics, Period, Social stratification, Islam and Genetic differentiation.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The Beaker phenomenon and the genomic transformation of northwest Europe (243 citations)
  • The genomic history of southeastern Europe (227 citations)
  • Polygenic adaptation on height is overestimated due to uncorrected stratification in genome-wide association studies (147 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • Statistics

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Evolutionary biology, Genome, Ethnology, Gene flow and Bronze Age. The Evolutionary biology study combines topics in areas such as Effective population size, Genome-wide association study, Single-nucleotide polymorphism, Lineage and Genomics. His Genome-wide association study study improves the overall literature in Gene.

His Single-nucleotide polymorphism research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Adaptation, Genetic drift and Computational biology. He combines subjects such as Coalescent theory, Phylogenetic tree, Introgression, Locus and Heliconius with his study of Gene flow. His work on Chalcolithic as part of his general Bronze Age study is frequently connected to Pastoralism, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science.
