Molecular biology, Biochemistry, DNA, Gene and Transfection are his primary areas of study. His Molecular biology research includes themes of Nucleic acid sequence, Plasmid, Complementary DNA, Virus and Phosphoribosyltransferase. His studies in Escherichia coli, RNA, Transfer RNA, Nick translation and Restriction fragment are all subfields of Biochemistry research.
His study in DNA is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both DNA polymerase I and Mutant. His work carried out in the field of Transfection brings together such families of science as Alpha chain, Chloramphenicol acetyltransferase and Cotransformation. The study incorporates disciplines such as DNA polymerase II and DNA polymerase in addition to Transcription.
Paul Berg mainly investigates Molecular biology, Biochemistry, DNA, Genetics and Gene. His Molecular biology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Nucleic acid sequence, Plasmid, Mutant, Virus and Base pair. His Plasmid research includes elements of Complementary DNA and Transfection.
The Base pair study combines topics in areas such as DNA polymerase II, In vitro recombination, Heteroduplex and DNA polymerase. Paul Berg interconnects Polymerase and Circular bacterial chromosome in the investigation of issues within DNA polymerase II. Paul Berg combines subjects such as Helper virus and Cleavage with his study of DNA.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Genetics, Molecular biology, Gene, DNA and RAD51. His Genetics study incorporates themes from Genealogy and GEORGE. The concepts of his Molecular biology study are interwoven with issues in Heteroduplex, Recombination, Mutant, Glutamic acid and Gene targeting.
Biochemistry covers Paul Berg research in DNA. His work on Chromosomal translocation, Cell, Cytosol and Protein kinase C as part of general Biochemistry research is frequently linked to Jurkat cells, bridging the gap between disciplines. The RAD51 study which covers Biophysics that intersects with Fungal protein.
Paul Berg focuses on Genetics, RAD51, Coding strand, Branch migration and Biophysics. His work on Genome, Gene, Human genome and RAD52 as part of general Genetics research is often related to Replication protein A, thus linking different fields of science. His studies deal with areas such as Mutation, DNA polymerase delta and DNA mismatch repair as well as RAD51.
His Coding strand study combines topics in areas such as Sense strand, Heteroduplex and Fungal protein. His Fungal protein study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Molecular biology, Primer and Transcription bubble. His DNA study is related to the wider topic of Biochemistry.
