Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Virus
  • Gene
  • Genome

Peter P. C. Mertens mainly investigates Virology, Virus, Genome, Orbivirus and Serotype. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Disease and Chymotrypsin. He has researched Virus in several fields, including RNA, Antibody and Outbreak.

Peter P. C. Mertens has included themes like Phylogenetics and Sequence analysis in his Genome study. His Orbivirus research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Culicoides and Vector. His Serotype research includes themes of Neutralizing antibody and Typing.

His most cited work include:

  • Uniformity of rotavirus strain nomenclature proposed by the Rotavirus Classification Working Group (RCWG). (684 citations)
  • Climate change and the recent emergence of bluetongue in Europe. (631 citations)
  • Recommendations for the classification of group A rotaviruses using all 11 genomic RNA segments. (514 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Virology, Virus, Serotype, Orbivirus and Genome. The various areas that Peter P. C. Mertens examines in his Virology study include Culicoides and Antibody. His Virus research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of RNA and Whole genome sequencing.

His research investigates the connection between Serotype and topics such as Vaccination that intersect with problems in Modified vaccinia Ankara. Peter P. C. Mertens combines subjects such as Infectivity, Virus classification, Equine encephalosis virus and Ceratopogonidae with his study of Orbivirus. His Genome study incorporates themes from Phylogenetics, Sequence analysis and Phylogenetic tree.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Virology (84.67%)
  • Virus (74.71%)
  • Serotype (41.76%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Virology (84.67%)
  • Virus (74.71%)
  • Serotype (41.76%)

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

Peter P. C. Mertens focuses on Virology, Virus, Serotype, Outbreak and Culicoides. Peter P. C. Mertens interconnects Veterinary medicine and Whole genome sequencing in the investigation of issues within Virology. The Virus study combines topics in areas such as Genome, Antibody and Vaccination.

His Genome study contributes to a more complete understanding of Genetics. The study incorporates disciplines such as Vector, Strain, Heterologous, Ceratopogonidae and Typing in addition to Serotype. The Culicoides study combines topics in areas such as Capsid, Isolation, Viral replication, Reverse genetics and Polymerase chain reaction.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Widespread Reassortment Shapes the Evolution and Epidemiology of Bluetongue Virus following European Invasion. (80 citations)
  • Full-genome sequencing as a basis for molecular epidemiology studies of bluetongue virus in India (37 citations)
  • Bluetongue virus spread in Europe is a consequence of climatic, landscape and vertebrate host factors as revealed by phylogeographic inference. (32 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Virus
  • Genome

Peter P. C. Mertens mainly focuses on Virology, Virus, Serotype, Orbivirus and Culicoides. Virology is often connected to Genome in his work. His Genome research includes elements of Molecular epidemiology and Phylogenetic tree.

His study in Virus is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Antibody and Vaccination. Peter P. C. Mertens works mostly in the field of Serotype, limiting it down to topics relating to Heterologous and, in certain cases, Real-time polymerase chain reaction, Reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction, African Horse Sickness Virus and Subcutaneous injection. His Culicoides study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Typing and Polymerase chain reaction.
