Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Bacteria
  • Ecosystem

His scientific interests lie mostly in Ecology, Soil water, Soil microbiology, Metagenomics and Ecosystem. Noah Fierer combines subjects such as Acidobacteria and Microbial population biology with his study of Ecology. His research investigates the connection with Soil water and areas like Botany which intersect with concerns in Microorganism.

Noah Fierer interconnects Agronomy, Gemmatimonadetes, Microbial ecology, Archaea and Nitrogen cycle in the investigation of issues within Soil microbiology. His studies in Metagenomics integrate themes in fields like Relative species abundance, Matching, Human microbiome, Object and Computational biology. His Ecosystem research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Soil biology, Phylogenetics, Community structure and Soil fertility.

His most cited work include:

  • QIIME allows analysis of high-throughput community sequencing data (20576 citations)
  • Ultra-high-throughput microbial community analysis on the Illumina HiSeq and MiSeq platforms (4683 citations)
  • Ultra-high-throughput microbial community analysis on the Illumina HiSeq and MiSeq platforms (4683 citations)

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

Noah Fierer spends much of his time researching Ecology, Soil water, Ecosystem, Biodiversity and Microbial population biology. His study explores the link between Ecology and topics such as Microbial ecology that cross with problems in Microorganism. His research in Soil water intersects with topics in Environmental chemistry and Botany.

Noah Fierer usually deals with Ecosystem and limits it to topics linked to Species diversity and Species richness. The various areas that Noah Fierer examines in his Biodiversity study include Pyrosequencing, Ecology, Bacteria, Biome and Biogeography. His Soil microbiology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Soil pH and Metagenomics.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (99.10%)
  • Soil water (37.89%)
  • Ecosystem (35.65%)

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

  • Ecology (99.10%)
  • Soil water (37.89%)
  • Ecosystem (35.65%)

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

Noah Fierer mostly deals with Ecology, Soil water, Ecosystem, Metagenomics and Microbiome. His Soil microbiology, Biodiversity, Terrestrial ecosystem, Soil pH and Taxon investigations are all subjects of Ecology research. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Range and Microbial population biology.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Soil acidification, Moss, Species richness and Species diversity. His Metagenomics research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Zoology, RNA, Phototroph, Genome and Microbial ecology. Noah Fierer interconnects Evolutionary biology, Data science, Host, Phylogenetics and DNA sequencing in the investigation of issues within Microbiome.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • A global atlas of the dominant bacteria found in soil (547 citations)
  • A global atlas of the dominant bacteria found in soil (547 citations)
  • Minimum information about a single amplified genome (MISAG) and a metagenome-assembled genome (MIMAG) of bacteria and archaea (512 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Bacteria
  • Ecosystem

Noah Fierer mainly focuses on Ecology, Soil water, Soil microbiology, Ecosystem and Taxon. His Ecology study frequently links to other fields, such as Biological dispersal. His Soil properties study, which is part of a larger body of work in Soil water, is frequently linked to Negatively associated, bridging the gap between disciplines.

His Soil microbiology research incorporates elements of Biodiversity, Soil chemistry, Soil fertility and Metagenomics. His Ecosystem research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Species richness and Species diversity. His studies in Taxon integrate themes in fields like Evolutionary biology, Bacteria, Phylogenetics, Holobiont and DNA sequencing.
