Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Bacteria
  • Gene
  • Ecology

Ramunas Stepanauskas mainly focuses on Genomics, Genetics, Genome, Metagenomics and Ecology. His Genomics study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Computational biology and Prochlorococcus. His research in Genome tackles topics such as genomic DNA which are related to areas like Oceanospirillales, Mesopelagic zone and Deltaproteobacteria.

His work deals with themes such as Evolutionary biology, Phylogenetics and Comparative genomics, which intersect with Metagenomics. His study focuses on the intersection of Phylogenetics and fields such as Phylogenetic tree with connections in the field of Three-domain system. His studies deal with areas such as Haloquadratum walsbyi, Haloquadratum, Gammaproteobacteria and Botany as well as Ecology.

His most cited work include:

  • Insights into the phylogeny and coding potential of microbial dark matter (1378 citations)
  • Co-selection of antibiotic and metal resistance. (931 citations)
  • Assembling Single-Cell Genomes and Mini-Metagenomes From Chimeric MDA Products (700 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Genome, Genomics, Evolutionary biology, Genetics and Metagenomics. His research in Genome intersects with topics in Archaea, Bacteria and Microbiology. His work is dedicated to discovering how Microbiology, Human pathogen are connected with Antibiotic resistance and other disciplines.

His work on Comparative genomics is typically connected to Multiple displacement amplification as part of general Genomics study, connecting several disciplines of science. His study on Evolutionary biology also encompasses disciplines like

  • Phylogenetic tree together with 16S ribosomal RNA,

  • Ecological niche that connect with fields like Intraspecific competition. His Metagenomics study also includes

  • Phylum which is related to area like Bacterial phyla,

  • Ecology which intersects with area such as Prochlorococcus.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genome (40.25%)
  • Genomics (35.85%)
  • Evolutionary biology (30.82%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2019-2021)?

  • Evolutionary biology (30.82%)
  • Genome (40.25%)
  • Gene (14.47%)

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

Evolutionary biology, Genome, Gene, Genomics and Phylogenetic tree are his primary areas of study. He interconnects Niche, Archaea and Prophage in the investigation of issues within Evolutionary biology. His Genome study frequently draws connections to other fields, such as Metagenomics.

His Gene research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Microorganism, Microbiome and Computational biology. As part of his studies on Genomics, Ramunas Stepanauskas often connects relevant subjects like Thaumarchaeota. In the subject of general Phylogenetic tree, his work in Clade is often linked to Enolase superfamily, thereby combining diverse domains of study.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Ancestral Absence of Electron Transport Chains in Patescibacteria and DPANN. (17 citations)
  • Pangenomics Analysis Reveals Diversification of Enzyme Families and Niche Specialization in Globally Abundant SAR202 Bacteria. (12 citations)
  • Insights into the dynamics between viruses and their hosts in a hot spring microbial mat. (7 citations)

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

  • Bacteria
  • Gene
  • Ecology

Ramunas Stepanauskas focuses on Genome, Evolutionary biology, Archaea, Phylogenetic tree and Obligate. His Genome research includes themes of Niche and Microbial mat. His Archaea research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Lysogenic cycle, Genomics, Viral replication, DNA sequencing and Metagenomics.

His work in the fields of Phylogenetic tree, such as Clade, intersects with other areas such as Enolase superfamily. His Obligate study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Microorganism, Bacteria, Phylogenetic diversity and Gene.
