Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • DNA

Nicole King mostly deals with Genetics, Choanoflagellate, Genome, Holozoa and Multicellular organism. Her Genetics study focuses mostly on Amphimedon queenslandica, Gene, Gene family and Phylogenetics. In her study, Lineage and Placozoa is strongly linked to Evolutionary biology, which falls under the umbrella field of Gene family.

Her studies in Choanoflagellate integrate themes in fields like Cadherin and Receptor tyrosine kinase. Her Holozoa research incorporates elements of Capsaspora and Cell signaling. Nicole King works on Multicellular organism which deals in particular with Choanoflagellata.

Her most cited work include:

  • Animals in a bacterial world, a new imperative for the life sciences (1396 citations)
  • Genome-scale approaches to resolving incongruence in molecular phylogenies (1284 citations)
  • The genome of the choanoflagellate Monosiga brevicollis and the origin of metazoans. (856 citations)

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

Nicole King spends much of her time researching Choanoflagellate, Multicellular organism, Evolutionary biology, Cell biology and Genetics. Her Choanoflagellate study is concerned with the larger field of Gene. Her Multicellular organism research includes elements of Extracellular matrix, Morphogenesis, Cellular differentiation and Eukaryote.

Her Evolutionary biology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Zoology, Lineage, Phylogenetic tree and Taxon. Her Cell biology study also includes

  • Transfection that connect with fields like Transgene,
  • Integrin that connect with fields like Cell aggregation and Cell adhesion. Her is involved in several facets of Genetics study, as is seen by her studies on Genome, Phylogenetics, Gene family, Holozoa and genomic DNA.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Choanoflagellate (70.75%)
  • Multicellular organism (47.17%)
  • Evolutionary biology (35.85%)

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

  • Choanoflagellate (70.75%)
  • Multicellular organism (47.17%)
  • Cell biology (30.19%)

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

Her main research concerns Choanoflagellate, Multicellular organism, Cell biology, Evolutionary biology and Salpingoeca rosetta. Her Choanoflagellate research is included under the broader classification of Gene. Nicole King has included themes like Function, Genome editing, Morphogenesis, Reverse genetics and Computational biology in her Multicellular organism study.

Her Cell biology research includes themes of Cell, Integrin, Model organism, Transfection and Septin. Nicole King works mostly in the field of Evolutionary biology, limiting it down to topics relating to Lineage and, in certain cases, Genome and Urmetazoan. As part of one scientific family, she deals mainly with the area of Salpingoeca rosetta, narrowing it down to issues related to the Eukaryote, and often Rosette, Mating, Bacteria and Marine ecosystem.

Between 2017 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Gene family innovation, conservation and loss on the animal stem lineage. (90 citations)
  • Light-regulated collective contractility in a multicellular choanoflagellate (43 citations)
  • The architecture of cell differentiation in choanoflagellates and sponge choanocytes. (33 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Bacteria

Her scientific interests lie mostly in Choanoflagellate, Multicellular organism, Cell biology, Evolutionary biology and Rosette. Choanoflagellate is a subfield of Gene that Nicole King investigates. Her Multicellular organism research integrates issues from Ultrastructure and Morphogenesis.

The concepts of her Cell biology study are interwoven with issues in Transgene, Transformation, Ecosystem and Model organism. Nicole King combines subjects such as Lineage, Urmetazoan, Genome, Gene family and Salpingoeca rosetta with her study of Evolutionary biology. Her Rosette research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Cellular differentiation, Sponge, Choanocyte, Extracellular matrix and Organelle.
