Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Enzyme

His primary scientific interests are in Genetics, Computational biology, Genome, Bioinformatics and Gene. His Genetics research includes elements of Context and Set. His Computational biology study incorporates themes from Proteome, Sequence alignment, Proteomics, Identification and Function.

Peer Bork has researched Genome in several fields, including Evolutionary biology and Metagenomics. His work on Annotation as part of general Bioinformatics study is frequently linked to Resource, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science. In the field of Gene, his study on Homology, Alternative splicing, Operon and Drosophila melanogaster overlaps with subjects such as Anopheles gambiae.

His most cited work include:

  • Initial sequencing and analysis of the human genome. (18816 citations)
  • A method and server for predicting damaging missense mutations. (8761 citations)
  • A human gut microbial gene catalogue established by metagenomic sequencing (6577 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Genetics, Computational biology, Genome, Gene and Metagenomics. Sequence analysis, Sequence alignment, Peptide sequence, Phylogenetics and Homology are subfields of Genetics in which his conducts study. His work in Computational biology addresses subjects such as Bioinformatics, which are connected to disciplines such as Information retrieval.

In his study, Protein domain is inextricably linked to Annotation, which falls within the broad field of Information retrieval. His Genome study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Evolutionary biology and Phylogenetic tree. His study explores the link between Metagenomics and topics such as Microbiome that cross with problems in Gut flora.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (42.65%)
  • Computational biology (29.40%)
  • Genome (24.37%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Metagenomics (14.57%)
  • Microbiome (10.33%)
  • Computational biology (29.40%)

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

Peer Bork mainly investigates Metagenomics, Microbiome, Computational biology, Genome and Ecology. His research investigates the link between Metagenomics and topics such as Evolutionary biology that cross with problems in Phylogenetic tree. His work deals with themes such as Colonization, Gut flora and Cohort, which intersect with Microbiome.

His studies deal with areas such as Proteome and Bioinformatics as well as Computational biology. His study in Bioinformatics is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both User interface and Information retrieval. The subject of his Genome research is within the realm of Genetics.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • STRING v11: protein-protein association networks with increased coverage, supporting functional discovery in genome-wide experimental datasets. (3363 citations)
  • The STRING database in 2017: quality-controlled protein–protein association networks, made broadly accessible (3344 citations)
  • Interactive tree of life (iTOL) v3: an online tool for the display and annotation of phylogenetic and other trees (3021 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Enzyme

Peer Bork focuses on Microbiome, Metagenomics, Bioinformatics, Computational biology and Genome. Microbiome is a subfield of Genetics that Peer Bork studies. In most of his Genetics studies, his work intersects topics such as Case-control study.

His Bioinformatics research is multidisciplinary, relying on both User interface, Information retrieval and Expression. His research in Computational biology intersects with topics in Proteome, Genome project, Taxonomic rank, InterProScan and Molecular Sequence Annotation. Peer Bork is interested in Genomics, which is a field of Genome.
