Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • Biochemistry

His scientific interests lie mostly in Arabidopsis, Abscisic acid, Biochemistry, Mutant and Cell biology. The Arabidopsis study combines topics in areas such as Canola and Homology. His work carried out in the field of Abscisic acid brings together such families of science as Hormone, Auxin, Agronomy and Stomatal conductance.

The Signal transduction, ABI1 and Transpiration research Peter McCourt does as part of his general Biochemistry study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as Farnesyltransferase and Protein prenylation, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science. The various areas that Peter McCourt examines in his ABI1 study include Pyrabactin, Cell signaling, Plasma protein binding and Pyr1. His Cell biology research incorporates themes from Gibberellin, Botany and Dormancy.

His most cited work include:

  • Abscisic Acid Inhibits Type 2C Protein Phosphatases via the PYR/PYL Family of START Proteins (1734 citations)
  • Regulation of Abscisic Acid Signaling by the Ethylene Response Pathway in Arabidopsis (491 citations)
  • Fatty acid composition of leaf lipids determined after combined digestion and fatty acid methyl ester formation from fresh tissue (406 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Arabidopsis, Biochemistry, Mutant, Abscisic acid and Botany. His Arabidopsis study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Arabidopsis thaliana, Germination and Cell biology. His work in the fields of Signal transduction and Nucleic acid overlaps with other areas such as Farnesyl Transferase.

His Mutant study combines topics in areas such as Chloroplast, Regulation of gene expression, Transcription factor and Lipid modification. His Abscisic acid research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Gibberellin, Seed dormancy, Canola and Embryo. His Botany research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Strigolactone and Meristem.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Arabidopsis (58.95%)
  • Biochemistry (35.79%)
  • Mutant (34.74%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2020)?

  • Arabidopsis (58.95%)
  • Strigolactone (15.79%)
  • Parasitic plant (12.63%)

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

Peter McCourt mainly investigates Arabidopsis, Strigolactone, Parasitic plant, Striga and Striga hermonthica. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Cell biology, Abscisic acid and Seedling. His work in Abscisic acid tackles topics such as Brassinolide which are related to areas like Function.

His research investigates the connection between Strigolactone and topics such as Receptor that intersect with issues in Functional studies, Adaptation, Orobanche, Phenotypic screening and Cell signaling. As a member of one scientific family, Peter McCourt mostly works in the field of Parasitic plant, focusing on Evolutionary biology and, on occasion, Genome evolution, Haustorium, Genome, Striga asiatica and Gene. His Striga hermonthica research includes elements of Ecology, Plant development, Computational biology and Genetic systems.

Between 2015 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • 50 Years of Arabidopsis research: highlights and future directions. (120 citations)
  • Farnesylation mediates brassinosteroid biosynthesis to regulate abscisic acid responses. (61 citations)
  • Small-molecule antagonists of germination of the parasitic plant Striga hermonthica. (41 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • Botany

Peter McCourt mainly focuses on Arabidopsis, Host, Parasitic plant, Striga and Evolutionary biology. His Brassinosteroid study in the realm of Arabidopsis connects with subjects such as Protein farnesylation. His Host study incorporates themes from Genome evolution, Genome, Gene and Striga asiatica.

His Parasitic plant research includes themes of Germination, Botany, Plant hormone, Strigolactone and Striga hermonthica. His Striga research is classified as research in Agronomy. His Evolutionary biology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Genetics, Synthetic biology, Genomics and Gene regulatory network.
