Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Genetics

Paul R. J. Birch mainly focuses on Phytophthora infestans, Effector, Gene, Oomycete and Genetics. Paul R. J. Birch interconnects Nicotiana benthamiana, Genome, Complementary DNA, Hypersensitive response and Phytophthora in the investigation of issues within Phytophthora infestans. His Effector research is under the purview of Cell biology.

His study connects Botany and Gene. His research integrates issues of Ecology, Blight and Hyaloperonospora arabidopsidis in his study of Oomycete. His work in the fields of Genetics, such as Comparative genomics and Expressed sequence tag, overlaps with other areas such as Plant disease.

His most cited work include:

  • Genome sequence and analysis of the Irish potato famine pathogen Phytophthora infestans. (1066 citations)
  • A translocation signal for delivery of oomycete effector proteins into host plant cells (614 citations)
  • An ancestral oomycete locus contains late blight avirulence gene Avr3a, encoding a protein that is recognized in the host cytoplasm (383 citations)

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

Paul R. J. Birch spends much of his time researching Effector, Phytophthora infestans, Genetics, Gene and Cell biology. He combines subjects such as Pathogen, Microbiology, Secretion, Phytophthora and Virulence with his study of Effector. In his study, Hyaloperonospora parasitica is inextricably linked to Oomycete, which falls within the broad field of Phytophthora infestans.

His Gene study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Molecular biology and Phanerochaete. His studies in Cell biology integrate themes in fields like Mutant, Immune system, Hypersensitive response, Gene silencing and Ubiquitin ligase. As a part of the same scientific study, Paul R. J. Birch usually deals with the Botany, concentrating on Whole genome sequencing and frequently concerns with Pantoea ananatis.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Effector (62.84%)
  • Phytophthora infestans (51.83%)
  • Genetics (44.50%)

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

  • Effector (62.84%)
  • Cell biology (41.28%)
  • Phytophthora infestans (51.83%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Effector, Cell biology, Phytophthora infestans, Gene silencing and Virulence. His Effector research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Haustorium, Genetics, Secretion, Oomycete and Phytophthora. His work on Gene family, Neofunctionalization, Regulation of gene expression and Gene as part of general Genetics research is frequently linked to Plant protein, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science.

The various areas that Paul R. J. Birch examines in his Cell biology study include MAMP, Multicellular organism and Innate immune system. His Phytophthora infestans research includes themes of Plant disease resistance and Nicotiana benthamiana. His Virulence research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Pathogen and Genome.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Effector gene birth in plant parasitic nematodes: Neofunctionalization of a housekeeping glutathione synthetase gene. (44 citations)
  • Effector gene birth in plant parasitic nematodes: Neofunctionalization of a housekeeping glutathione synthetase gene. (44 citations)
  • Phytophthora infestans RXLR effectors act in concert at diverse subcellular locations to enhance host colonization. (27 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Genetics

Effector, Phytophthora infestans, Cell biology, Virulence and Plant Immunity are his primary areas of study. His study in Effector is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Secretion, Housekeeping gene and Gene family. His Phytophthora infestans research includes themes of Gene silencing and Nicotiana benthamiana.

The Virulence study combines topics in areas such as Phytophthora, Genome and Pathogen. His study explores the link between Genome and topics such as Phytophthora capsici that cross with problems in Genetics. His Plant Immunity research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Regulator, Ubiquitin ligase and Immune system, Immunity.
