Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Botany
  • Fungus

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Botany, Mycorrhiza, Symbiosis, Ecology and Fungus. Paola Bonfante has included themes like Medicago truncatula, Glomeromycota and Cell biology in her Botany study. Paola Bonfante has researched Mycorrhiza in several fields, including 16S ribosomal RNA, Biochemistry, Lotus japonicus, Glomus and Complementation.

Her work deals with themes such as Obligate, Genome and Colonization, which intersect with Symbiosis. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Bacterial Physiological Phenomena and Microbial ecology. Her studies deal with areas such as Habitat, Truffle, Mycorrhizosphere, Ecology and Molecular ecology as well as Fungus.

Her most cited work include:

  • Mechanisms underlying beneficial plant–fungus interactions in mycorrhizal symbiosis (625 citations)
  • Périgord black truffle genome uncovers evolutionary origins and mechanisms of symbiosis (518 citations)
  • Plants, mycorrhizal fungi, and bacteria: a network of interactions. (483 citations)

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

Her primary areas of investigation include Botany, Symbiosis, Fungus, Mycorrhiza and Gene. Her work carried out in the field of Botany brings together such families of science as Arbuscular mycorrhiza, Lotus japonicus and Cell biology. Her Cell biology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Medicago truncatula, Mutant and Cytoskeleton.

Paola Bonfante interconnects Obligate, Ecology, Host and Colonization in the investigation of issues within Symbiosis. Her Fungus research incorporates elements of Transcriptome, Truffle and Spore. The concepts of her Mycorrhiza study are interwoven with issues in Glomus and Biochemistry.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Botany (58.85%)
  • Symbiosis (31.77%)
  • Fungus (19.79%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Symbiosis (31.77%)
  • Botany (58.85%)
  • Fungus (19.79%)

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

Her primary scientific interests are in Symbiosis, Botany, Fungus, Ecology and Gene. Her Symbiosis research integrates issues from Obligate and Nutrient. The Botany study combines topics in areas such as Host, Lotus japonicus and Colonization.

Her work carried out in the field of Fungus brings together such families of science as Xanthomonas translucens, Pathogen, Transcriptome, Biochemistry and Metabolomics. As part of one scientific family, Paola Bonfante deals mainly with the area of Ecology, narrowing it down to issues related to the Soil fungi, and often Taxon. Paola Bonfante studies Gene, namely Genome.

Between 2014 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Bacterial-fungal interactions: ecology, mechanisms and challenges. (140 citations)
  • Symbiosis with an endobacterium increases the fitness of a mycorrhizal fungus, raising its bioenergetic potential. (136 citations)
  • Arbuscular mycorrhizal dialogues: do you speak ‘plantish’ or ‘fungish’? (84 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Botany
  • Fungus

Paola Bonfante mainly investigates Symbiosis, Botany, Ecology, Fungus and Glomeromycota. Her studies deal with areas such as Obligate and Biochemistry, Phosphate as well as Symbiosis. Paola Bonfante is interested in Hypha, which is a branch of Botany.

Her work deals with themes such as Microbial ecology, Soil fungi and Primer, which intersect with Ecology. The concepts of her Fungus study are interwoven with issues in Soil water, Rhizosphere, Metabolomics and Xanthomonas. Her research integrates issues of Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi and Mucoromycotina in her study of Glomeromycota.
