Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • Mutation

Peter de Knijff mainly investigates Genetics, Haplotype, Microsatellite, Genetic marker and Mutation rate. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Evolutionary biology and Population genetics. Peter de Knijff has included themes like Mutation, SDHD and SDHB in his Haplotype study.

His Microsatellite study combines topics in areas such as Massive parallel sequencing, Tandem repeat and Sequence assembly. His Genetic marker study incorporates themes from Single-nucleotide polymorphism and Genetic genealogy. His studies deal with areas such as Human mitochondrial DNA haplogroup, Locus and Coalescent theory as well as Mutation rate.

His most cited work include:

  • The Simons Genome Diversity Project: 300 genomes from 142 diverse populations (684 citations)
  • Whole-genome sequence variation, population structure and demographic history of the Dutch population (522 citations)
  • Y-Chromosomal Diversity in Europe Is Clinal and Influenced Primarily by Geography, Rather than by Language (515 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Genetics, Haplotype, Microsatellite, Allele and Y chromosome. His is doing research in Single-nucleotide polymorphism, Haplogroup, Genetic variation, Genetic marker and Locus, both of which are found in Genetics. Peter de Knijff focuses mostly in the field of Haplogroup, narrowing it down to topics relating to Evolutionary biology and, in certain cases, Mitochondrial DNA, Demographic history and Genome.

His Haplotype research includes themes of Population genetics and Allele frequency. His work carried out in the field of Microsatellite brings together such families of science as Genotyping, Computational biology and DNA profiling. His Y chromosome research includes elements of Mutation rate and Mutation.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (58.67%)
  • Haplotype (24.00%)
  • Microsatellite (24.00%)

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

  • Computational biology (10.67%)
  • Massive parallel sequencing (6.00%)
  • DNA profiling (10.00%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Computational biology, Massive parallel sequencing, DNA profiling, Microsatellite and Genotyping. Peter de Knijff usually deals with Massive parallel sequencing and limits it to topics linked to Amplicon and Y-SNP, Human Y-chromosome DNA haplogroup and Genome. Peter de Knijff interconnects Degraded dna and Genotype in the investigation of issues within DNA profiling.

His research in Microsatellite intersects with topics in PABPN1 gene, Human genome and DNA sequencing. His study looks at the relationship between Genotyping and topics such as SNP, which overlap with Haplogroup. His research on DNA microarray concerns the broader Genetics.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The Beaker phenomenon and the genomic transformation of northwest Europe (243 citations)
  • The HIrisPlex-S system for eye, hair and skin colour prediction from DNA: Introduction and forensic developmental validation. (78 citations)
  • From next generation sequencing to now generation sequencing in forensics. (24 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • Mutation

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Computational biology, Microsatellite, Massive parallel sequencing, DNA sequencing and DNA profiling. Peter de Knijff has researched Computational biology in several fields, including Eye color and Polymerase chain reaction. His study in Microsatellite is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Amplicon, Whole genome sequencing, Genotyping, Locus and 1000 Genomes Project.

His Locus study frequently draws connections to adjacent fields such as Genome. His research integrates issues of Evolutionary biology, Genetic drift, Genotype and Demographic history in his study of Genome. His DNA profiling research incorporates elements of Genotyping Techniques, Multiplex and DNA phenotyping.
