Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Genome
  • Eukaryote

Patrick J. Keeling mainly focuses on Genetics, Phylogenetics, Evolutionary biology, Plastid and Genome. His Phylogenetics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Zoology, Ecology and Phylogenetic tree. His research in Evolutionary biology intersects with topics in Archaeplastida, Alveolate, Cercozoa and Genomics.

His study on Comparative genomics is often connected to Diversity as part of broader study in Genomics. The concepts of his Plastid study are interwoven with issues in Apicomplexa, Organelle and Botany. His Genome study combines topics in areas such as Encephalitozoon cuniculi, Microsporidia, Intracellular parasite and Enterocytozoon bieneusi.

His most cited work include:

  • Horizontal gene transfer in eukaryotic evolution (913 citations)
  • Nuclear-encoded proteins target to the plastid in Toxoplasma gondii and Plasmodium falciparum (630 citations)
  • The Marine Microbial Eukaryote Transcriptome Sequencing Project (MMETSP): Illuminating the Functional Diversity of Eukaryotic Life in the Oceans through Transcriptome Sequencing (601 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Genetics, Evolutionary biology, Phylogenetics, Genome and Gene. His Genetics study typically links adjacent topics like Encephalitozoon cuniculi. His research integrates issues of Phylogenomics, Clade, Plastid, Genomics and Protist in his study of Evolutionary biology.

The Plastid study combines topics in areas such as Organelle, Apicomplexa and Botany. His Phylogenetics study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Zoology, Ecology, Dinoflagellate and Phylogenetic tree. His Genome research includes elements of Intracellular parasite, Mitochondrial DNA and Microsporidia.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (39.86%)
  • Evolutionary biology (35.48%)
  • Phylogenetics (33.64%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Evolutionary biology (35.48%)
  • Phylogenetics (33.64%)
  • Genome (33.41%)

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

Patrick J. Keeling mostly deals with Evolutionary biology, Phylogenetics, Genome, Gene and Ecology. The study incorporates disciplines such as Phylogenomics, Clade, Plastid, Lineage and Genomics in addition to Evolutionary biology. He combines subjects such as Obligate, Dinoflagellate and Apicomplexa with his study of Plastid.

He has researched Phylogenetics in several fields, including Zoology, Genus, Ribosomal RNA and Phylogenetic tree. The various areas that Patrick J. Keeling examines in his Genome study include Bacteria, Endosymbiosis, Intron and Effector. His Gene study introduces a deeper knowledge of Genetics.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Marine Protists Are Not Just Big Bacteria. (51 citations)
  • A New Lineage of Eukaryotes Illuminates Early Mitochondrial Genome Reduction (50 citations)
  • A widespread coral-infecting apicomplexan with chlorophyll biosynthesis genes (47 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Genome
  • Bacteria

His primary areas of investigation include Evolutionary biology, Phylogenetics, Genome, Gene and Ecology. His Evolutionary biology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Dinoflagellate, Endosymbiosis, Plastid, Horizontal gene transfer and Obligate. His Phylogenetics research incorporates elements of Biodiversity, Botany and Phylogenetic tree.

His work carried out in the field of Genome brings together such families of science as Tree of life and Bacteria. His Gene research is within the category of Genetics. His study looks at the intersection of Ecology and topics like Organelle with Feeling.
