Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Virus
  • Gene
  • Internal medicine

Peter Simmonds focuses on Virology, Virus, Hepatitis C virus, Genetics and Hepacivirus. His Virology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Nucleic acid sequence, Genome, Immunology and Genotype. Peter Simmonds combines subjects such as Nomenclature and Polymerase chain reaction with his study of Genotype.

His studies deal with areas such as Molecular biology, Antigen and Provirus as well as Virus. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Hepatitis C virus, Serology and Molecular epidemiology is strongly linked to Hepatitis C. The various areas that Peter Simmonds examines in his Hepacivirus study include Transmission, Serotype and Hepatitis B virus.

His most cited work include:

  • Consensus proposals for a unified system of nomenclature of hepatitis C virus genotypes. (1310 citations)
  • Classification of hepatitis C virus into six major genotypes and a series of subtypes by phylogenetic analysis of the NS-5 region (1291 citations)
  • A proposed system for the nomenclature of hepatitis C viral genotypes (960 citations)

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

Peter Simmonds mainly investigates Virology, Virus, Hepatitis C virus, Immunology and Genetics. His Virology study incorporates themes from Polymerase chain reaction and Genotype. His Virus research integrates issues from RNA and Molecular biology.

His research integrates issues of Genotyping, Hepatitis C and Hepatitis in his study of Hepatitis C virus. His Immunology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Internal medicine and Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. His study in Genome, Phylogenetic tree, Phylogenetics, Gene and Coding region are all subfields of Genetics.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Virology (51.61%)
  • Virus (22.94%)
  • Hepatitis C virus (21.90%)

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

  • Virology (51.61%)
  • Virus (22.94%)
  • Genome (11.12%)

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

Peter Simmonds mainly focuses on Virology, Virus, Genome, Genetics and Hepatitis C virus. His Virology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Taxonomy, Virus classification and Genotype. Peter Simmonds interconnects Transmission and Hepatitis E virus in the investigation of issues within Virus.

His research on Genome also deals with topics like

  • Metagenomics which connect with Computational biology,
  • Phylogenetic tree which connect with Genetic diversity. Peter Simmonds does research in Genetics, focusing on RNA specifically. His Hepacivirus and Pegivirus study are his primary interests in Hepatitis C virus.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Changes to taxonomy and the International Code of Virus Classification and Nomenclature ratified by the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses (2017) (489 citations)
  • Consensus statement: Virus taxonomy in the age of metagenomics (325 citations)
  • Broad and strong memory CD4 + and CD8 + T cells induced by SARS-CoV-2 in UK convalescent individuals following COVID-19. (256 citations)

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

  • Virus
  • Gene
  • Internal medicine

His scientific interests lie mostly in Virology, Virus, Hepatitis C virus, Genome and Virus classification. His specific area of interest is Virology, where Peter Simmonds studies Viral replication. His Virus study deals with the bigger picture of Immunology.

His Hepatitis C virus study combines topics in areas such as Gene, DNA replication and Viral load. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Host and Metagenomics. His studies in Genotype integrate themes in fields like Replicon and Enterovirus.
