Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • Statistics

Peter M. Visscher spends much of his time researching Genetics, Genome-wide association study, Single-nucleotide polymorphism, Heritability and Genetic association. His Genetics and Genetic variation, Quantitative trait locus, Linkage disequilibrium, Human height and Gene investigations all form part of his Genetics research activities. His Genome-wide association study study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Schizophrenia, Polymorphism, Disease, Locus and Genetic architecture.

In his study, Gerontology is strongly linked to Cognition, which falls under the umbrella field of Single-nucleotide polymorphism. His studies in Heritability integrate themes in fields like Demography, Genetic correlation, Missing heritability problem and DNA methylation. His work carried out in the field of Genetic association brings together such families of science as SNP, Computational biology and Receiver operating characteristic.

His most cited work include:

  • Finding the missing heritability of complex diseases. (6217 citations)
  • Biological insights from 108 schizophrenia-associated genetic loci (4834 citations)
  • GCTA: a tool for genome-wide complex trait analysis. (3723 citations)

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

Peter M. Visscher mainly focuses on Genetics, Genome-wide association study, Genetic association, Single-nucleotide polymorphism and Quantitative trait locus. His Heritability, Genetic variation, Genetic architecture, Gene and Linkage disequilibrium investigations are all subjects of Genetics research. His Genome-wide association study research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Bioinformatics, Disease, Allele, Locus and Computational biology.

His research in Genetic association intersects with topics in Body mass index and Population stratification. His Single-nucleotide polymorphism research integrates issues from Genome, Cognition and Allele frequency. The various areas that Peter M. Visscher examines in his Quantitative trait locus study include Genetic marker, Expression quantitative trait loci, Genetic linkage, Linkage and Family-based QTL mapping.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (69.01%)
  • Genome-wide association study (46.42%)
  • Genetic association (28.52%)

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

  • Genome-wide association study (46.42%)
  • Genetics (69.01%)
  • Genetic association (28.52%)

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

Genome-wide association study, Genetics, Genetic association, DNA methylation and Single-nucleotide polymorphism are his primary areas of study. His Genome-wide association study study incorporates themes from Biobank, Bioinformatics, Disease, Computational biology and Genetic architecture. His is doing research in Gene, Heritability, Quantitative trait locus, Genetic variation and Genome, both of which are found in Genetics.

His Heritability research includes elements of Minor allele frequency and Statistics. His research in Genetic association focuses on subjects like Demography, which are connected to Observational study. His Single-nucleotide polymorphism research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Body mass index and Confounding.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Genome-wide association analyses identify 44 risk variants and refine the genetic architecture of major depression (1131 citations)
  • Gene discovery and polygenic prediction from a genome-wide association study of educational attainment in 1.1 million individuals (770 citations)
  • Meta-analysis of genome-wide association studies for height and body mass index in ∼700000 individuals of European ancestry (539 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • Statistics

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Genome-wide association study, Genetics, Genetic association, DNA methylation and Single-nucleotide polymorphism. His Genome-wide association study research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Quantitative trait locus, Genetic architecture, Disease and Heritability. Peter M. Visscher combines subjects such as Context, Parkinson's disease and Age of onset with his study of Genetics.

His studies deal with areas such as Bioinformatics, Mendelian Randomization Analysis, Statistics, Mixed model and Genetic variation as well as Genetic association. The study incorporates disciplines such as Methylation, Epigenetics and Ageing in addition to DNA methylation. His studies in Single-nucleotide polymorphism integrate themes in fields like Meta-analysis, Body mass index and Obesity.
