Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Statistics
  • Genetics
  • Gene

Nicolas Gengler focuses on Animal science, Lactation, Dairy cattle, Heritability and Biotechnology. His Animal science study focuses mostly on Herd and Breed. His Herd research focuses on Fatty acid and how it relates to Food science, Bovine milk and Nutritional quality.

His studies in Lactation integrate themes in fields like Endocrinology and Internal medicine. His Dairy cattle study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Respiration chamber, Ecology and Polymorphism. His Heritability study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Variance, Statistics, Genetic variability and Genetic correlation.

His most cited work include:

  • Estimating Fatty Acid Content in Cow Milk using Mid-Infrared Spectrometry (202 citations)
  • Mid-infrared prediction of bovine milk fatty acids across multiple breeds, production systems, and countries. (178 citations)
  • Variation in Fatty Acid Contents of Milk and Milk Fat Within and Across Breeds (128 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Animal science, Dairy cattle, Statistics, Lactation and Mid infrared. His work deals with themes such as Ice calving, Genetic correlation, Parity and Heritability, which intersect with Animal science. Nicolas Gengler has researched Heritability in several fields, including Breed, Genetic variability and Genetic variation.

In Dairy cattle, he works on issues like Biotechnology, which are connected to Animal breeding. His Statistics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Variance and Test day. His Lactation study deals with Fatty acid intersecting with Food science and Mid infrared spectrometry.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Animal science (32.45%)
  • Dairy cattle (23.91%)
  • Statistics (19.54%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Animal science (32.45%)
  • Mid infrared (11.95%)
  • Dairy cattle (23.91%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Animal science, Mid infrared, Dairy cattle, Lactation and Statistics. His Herd study in the realm of Animal science connects with subjects such as Trait. Nicolas Gengler combines subjects such as Ecology, Dairy industry, Agronomy and Physiology with his study of Dairy cattle.

While the research belongs to areas of Lactation, Nicolas Gengler spends his time largely on the problem of Fatty acid, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Phenotype. His studies deal with areas such as External validation, Residual and Correlation as well as Statistics. His work on Heritability expands to the thematically related Genetic correlation.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Development of Fourier transform mid-infrared calibrations to predict acetone, β-hydroxybutyrate, and citrate contents in bovine milk through a European dairy network (66 citations)
  • Invited review: Large-scale indirect measurements for enteric methane emissions in dairy cattle: A review of proxies and their potential for use in management and breeding decisions. (63 citations)
  • Capitalizing on fine milk composition for breeding and management of dairy cows. (45 citations)

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

  • Statistics
  • Genetics
  • Gene

His main research concerns Animal science, Lactation, Dairy cattle, Mid infrared and Biotechnology. Nicolas Gengler has included themes like Methane emissions, Coefficient of determination, Partial least squares regression and Standard deviation in his Animal science study. His Lactation research includes elements of Biomarker, Herd, Phenotype and Fatty acid.

His Fatty acid research incorporates elements of Genetics and Mastitis. Nicolas Gengler works mostly in the field of Dairy cattle, limiting it down to topics relating to Milk yield and, in certain cases, Variance components, Ecology, Enteric methane and Carbon footprint. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Heritability, Honey bee and Sire.
