Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Bacteria
  • Gene

His scientific interests lie mostly in Ecology, Ribosomal DNA, Ribosomal RNA, Evolutionary biology and Phylogenetics. The various areas that he examines in his Ecology study include Temperature gradient gel electrophoresis and Archaea. His studies in Temperature gradient gel electrophoresis integrate themes in fields like Bacterioplankton and Mediterranean sea.

His Ribosomal DNA study incorporates themes from Pyrosequencing and Protist. Ramon Massana has included themes like GenBank, Molecular biology and Botany in his Ribosomal RNA study. His research in Evolutionary biology intersects with topics in Taxonomy and Phylogenetic tree.

His most cited work include:

  • The Protist Ribosomal Reference database (PR2): a catalog of unicellular eukaryote Small Sub-Unit rRNA sequences with curated taxonomy (627 citations)
  • Vertical distribution and phylogenetic characterization of marine planktonic Archaea in the Santa Barbara Channel. (542 citations)
  • Application of denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis (DGGE) to study the diversity of marine picoeukaryotic assemblages and comparison of DGGE with other molecular techniques. (487 citations)

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

Ramon Massana mostly deals with Ecology, Plankton, Phylogenetics, Evolutionary biology and Oceanography. His Ecology research incorporates themes from Temperature gradient gel electrophoresis and Protist. His Plankton research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Taxonomic rank, Picoplankton, Water column and Community structure.

The Phylogenetics study which covers Phylogenetic tree that intersects with DNA sequencing and Zoology. His work deals with themes such as Ribosomal RNA, 18S ribosomal RNA, Genomics, Phylum and Metagenomics, which intersect with Evolutionary biology. His study explores the link between Oceanography and topics such as Phytoplankton that cross with problems in Bay.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ecology (58.91%)
  • Plankton (17.33%)
  • Phylogenetics (17.33%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Ecology (58.91%)
  • Evolutionary biology (16.34%)
  • Plankton (17.33%)

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

Ramon Massana focuses on Ecology, Evolutionary biology, Plankton, Genomics and Environmental science. His research on Ecology often connects related topics like Heterotroph. His Evolutionary biology research includes themes of Ribosomal RNA, 18S ribosomal RNA, Nomenclature and Comparative genomics.

His research investigates the link between 18S ribosomal RNA and topics such as Biodiversity that cross with problems in Phylogenetic diversity, Clade, Bay, Phytoplankton and DNA sequencing. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Taxonomic rank, Community structure and Water column. The concepts of his Genomics study are interwoven with issues in Cell, Microbial ecology, Marine biology and Phylogenetics.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Revisions to the Classification, Nomenclature, and Diversity of Eukaryotes (325 citations)
  • Single-cell genomics of multiple uncultured stramenopiles reveals underestimated functional diversity across oceans (42 citations)
  • EukRef: Phylogenetic curation of ribosomal RNA to enhance understanding of eukaryotic diversity and distribution. (41 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Bacteria
  • Gene

His primary scientific interests are in Evolutionary biology, Plankton, 18S ribosomal RNA, Ecology and Genomics. His work carried out in the field of Evolutionary biology brings together such families of science as Ribosomal RNA, Nomenclature and Metagenomics. In his research on the topic of Plankton, Aquatic ecosystem, Benthic zone, Diatom and Taxonomy is strongly related with Protist.

His Community structure and Water column study in the realm of Ecology interacts with subjects such as Global change and Context. His Genomics study combines topics in areas such as Microbial ecology, Marine biology and Phylogenetics. His Phylogenetics research incorporates elements of GenBank, Computational biology and Phylogenetic tree.
