Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Genus

Rafael Zardoya focuses on Genetics, Phylogenetics, Phylogenetic tree, Molecular phylogenetics and Mitochondrial DNA. Many of his studies on Genetics involve topics that are commonly interrelated, such as Computational biology. His research on Phylogenetics focuses in particular on Molecular evolution.

His Phylogenetic tree research incorporates themes from Evolutionary biology, Data sequences and Aquaporin. His studies deal with areas such as Zoology, Taxon, Ecology, Molecular clock and Lineage as well as Molecular phylogenetics. His work in Mitochondrial DNA tackles topics such as Genome which are related to areas like Vertebrate and Gene rearrangement.

His most cited work include:

  • ProtTest: selection of best-fit models of protein evolution (2798 citations)
  • TranslatorX: multiple alignment of nucleotide sequences guided by amino acid translations (842 citations)
  • Molecular evidence on the evolutionary and biogeographical patterns of European cyprinids. (389 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Phylogenetics, Phylogenetic tree, Evolutionary biology, Zoology and Genetics. His Phylogenetics research includes themes of Caecilian, Gastropoda, Mitochondrial DNA and Aquaporin. His study in Phylogenetic tree is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Taxon and Systematics.

The concepts of his Evolutionary biology study are interwoven with issues in Sister group, Clade, Venom, Opisthobranchia and Lineage. Rafael Zardoya has included themes like Mink and Endangered species, Mustela lutreola in his Zoology study. His Genetics study frequently draws connections to adjacent fields such as Computational biology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Phylogenetics (37.09%)
  • Phylogenetic tree (35.76%)
  • Evolutionary biology (34.44%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Evolutionary biology (34.44%)
  • Phylogenetics (37.09%)
  • Zoology (27.81%)

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

Evolutionary biology, Phylogenetics, Zoology, Phylogenetic tree and Conidae are his primary areas of study. His Evolutionary biology study also includes fields such as

  • Conotoxin which is related to area like Abundance,
  • Genome that connect with fields like Genetic code and Transfer RNA. His Phylogenetics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Genus and Mitochondrial DNA.

His work carried out in the field of Zoology brings together such families of science as Sister group, Ecology and Monophyly. The various areas that he examines in his Phylogenetic tree study include Genomics, Biomedicine, Statistical model, Endemism and DNA sequencing. His study explores the link between Phorcus and topics such as Molecular phylogenetics that cross with problems in Computational biology.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Mitogenomics of Vetigastropoda: insights into the evolution of pallial symmetry (33 citations)
  • Phylogenetic relationships among superfamilies of Neritimorpha (Mollusca: Gastropoda). (30 citations)
  • Beyond Conus: Phylogenetic relationships of Conidae based on complete mitochondrial genomes (29 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Genus

Rafael Zardoya mainly investigates Evolutionary biology, Phylogenetics, Christian ministry, Zoology and Vetigastropoda. His Evolutionary biology research incorporates elements of Taxon sampling, Long branch attraction, Phylogenetic reconstruction, Patellogastropoda and Artifact. His Phylogenetics study combines topics in areas such as Neritopsoidea, Neritimorpha, Phylogenetic tree and Ecology.

While working in this field, Rafael Zardoya studies both Christian ministry and Genome. His work on Conidae and Conasprella as part of general Zoology study is frequently linked to Californiconus, Conus Snail and Profundiconus teramachii, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science. The Vetigastropoda study combines topics in areas such as SUPERFAMILY and Sampling.
