Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Bacteria
  • Gene
  • Genome

His main research concerns Genetics, Genome, Metagenomics, Computational biology and Phylogenetics. His CRISPR research extends to the thematically linked field of Genome. The concepts of his Metagenomics study are interwoven with issues in Evolutionary biology, Phylum, Data management and Glycoside hydrolase.

His Phylum research incorporates elements of Taxonomy and Synergistetes. In Computational biology, Philip Hugenholtz works on issues like Sequence analysis, which are connected to Whole genome sequencing and Nucleic acid sequence. His research integrates issues of Feces, Shotgun sequencing, Phylogenetic tree, Microbial ecology and Archaea in his study of Phylogenetics.

His most cited work include:

  • Greengenes, a Chimera-Checked 16S rRNA Gene Database and Workbench Compatible with ARB (7192 citations)
  • An improved Greengenes taxonomy with explicit ranks for ecological and evolutionary analyses of bacteria and archaea (3080 citations)
  • CheckM: assessing the quality of microbial genomes recovered from isolates, single cells, and metagenomes (2777 citations)

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

Philip Hugenholtz focuses on Genome, Genetics, Whole genome sequencing, Gene and Archaea. The study incorporates disciplines such as Metagenomics, Phylum, Bacteria and Computational biology in addition to Genome. His work deals with themes such as Microbiome, Ecology and Microbial ecology, which intersect with Metagenomics.

As a member of one scientific family, Philip Hugenholtz mostly works in the field of Bacteria, focusing on Microbiology and, on occasion, 16S ribosomal RNA. Genetics is closely attributed to Type species in his work. In his study, Evolutionary biology is inextricably linked to Phylogenetics, which falls within the broad field of Phylogenetic tree.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genome (75.58%)
  • Genetics (77.18%)
  • Whole genome sequencing (63.28%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Genome (75.58%)
  • Evolutionary biology (8.73%)
  • Microbiome (8.20%)

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

Philip Hugenholtz mainly focuses on Genome, Evolutionary biology, Microbiome, Metagenomics and Phylum. A significant part of his Genome research incorporates Gene and Genetics studies. In his study, Bacterial genome size and Gracilicutes is strongly linked to Phylogenetics, which falls under the umbrella field of Evolutionary biology.

His Microbiome study combines topics in areas such as Respiratory disease, Immunology and Bronchiectasis. His Metagenomics research also works with subjects such as

  • Generalist and specialist species which is related to area like Ecological niche and Microbial population biology,
  • Sequence analysis which connect with Microbiology,
  • Ecology which is related to area like Botany. His Phylum course of study focuses on Phylogenomics and Epsilonproteobacteria and Deltaproteobacteria.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • A standardized bacterial taxonomy based on genome phylogeny substantially revises the tree of life (1012 citations)
  • Recovery of nearly 8,000 metagenome-assembled genomes substantially expands the tree of life (649 citations)
  • Minimum information about a single amplified genome (MISAG) and a metagenome-assembled genome (MIMAG) of bacteria and archaea (512 citations)

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

  • Bacteria
  • Gene
  • Genome

Genome, Metagenomics, Microbiome, Evolutionary biology and Phylogenetics are his primary areas of study. His Genome research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Bacterial genetics, Taxonomy and Bacteria. Genetics and Gene are the main areas of his Metagenomics studies.

Philip Hugenholtz is interested in Phylogenetic tree, which is a branch of Genetics. He interconnects Earth Microbiome Project, Immunology and Biome in the investigation of issues within Microbiome. His Evolutionary biology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Phylum, Citizen science, Archaea and Open research.
