Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Genome
  • DNA

Genetics, Genome, Computational biology, Genomics and Human genome are his primary areas of study. His Gene, Epigenomics, Genetic variation, Genome-wide association study and Chromatin immunoprecipitation study are his primary interests in Genetics. His Genome research includes elements of Evolutionary biology and Enhancer.

The various areas that he examines in his Computational biology study include Annotation, Reference genome, Ensembl, 1000 Genomes Project and Molecular Sequence Annotation. His Genomics study incorporates themes from Sequence analysis, Whole genome sequencing and Systems biology. His Human genome research includes themes of Genome evolution, ENCODE, Chromatin, Expression quantitative trait loci and DNA sequencing.

His most cited work include:

  • A global reference for human genetic variation. (7825 citations)
  • Initial sequencing and comparative analysis of the mouse genome. (5789 citations)
  • Identification and analysis of functional elements in 1% of the human genome by the ENCODE pilot project (4297 citations)

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

Paul Flicek mostly deals with Genetics, Genome, Computational biology, Gene and Genomics. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Evolutionary biology and DNA sequencing. His study on Evolutionary biology also encompasses disciplines like

  • CTCF which is related to area like Transcriptional regulation,
  • Regulatory sequence, which have a strong connection to Transposable element.

Paul Flicek has included themes like Annotation, Transcriptome, Genotyping, Ensembl and Sequence in his Computational biology study. His Ensembl research incorporates themes from Genome browser, Comparative genomics, World Wide Web, Gene Annotation and Molecular Sequence Annotation. His Genomics study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Genome project, Genome-wide association study, Data science and 1000 Genomes Project.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (54.55%)
  • Genome (52.14%)
  • Computational biology (33.96%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Genome (52.14%)
  • Gene (38.50%)
  • Computational biology (33.96%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Genome, Gene, Computational biology, Evolutionary biology and Genomics. He usually deals with Genome and limits it to topics linked to Annotation and Genome browser. His Gene study is concerned with the field of Genetics as a whole.

Paul Flicek merges Genetics with Ribosomal protein in his research. The Computational biology study combines topics in areas such as Human genome, Whole genome sequencing, Expression quantitative trait loci, Genotyping and Haplotype. As part of one scientific family, he deals mainly with the area of Genomics, narrowing it down to issues related to the 1000 Genomes Project, and often Indel.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The NHGRI-EBI GWAS Catalog of published genome-wide association studies, targeted arrays and summary statistics 2019. (1035 citations)
  • GENCODE reference annotation for the human and mouse genomes. (840 citations)
  • Pan-cancer analysis of whole genomes (538 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Genome
  • DNA

Paul Flicek mainly investigates Computational biology, Genome, Genomics, Gene and Human genome. Computational biology is frequently linked to Sequence assembly in his study. The concepts of his Genome study are interwoven with issues in Evolutionary biology, Genetic linkage, DNA sequencing and 1000 Genomes Project.

Paul Flicek combines subjects such as Annotation, Whole genome sequencing and Reference genome with his study of Genomics. His work on Human genomics as part of general Human genome research is frequently linked to Declaration, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science. His Spliceosome research entails a greater understanding of Genetics.
