2004 - Fellow of Alfred P. Sloan Foundation
His primary areas of investigation include Genetics, Evolutionary biology, Genome, Human genome and Genomics. Gene, Nonsynonymous substitution, Genetic variation, Molecular evolution and Single-nucleotide polymorphism are the core of his Genetics study. His Molecular evolution research includes themes of Computational biology and DNA sequencing.
The various areas that he examines in his Evolutionary biology study include Coalescent theory, Natural selection, Human migration and Computational problem. Within one scientific family, he focuses on topics pertaining to Adaptation under Genome, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Gene flow. His research in Genomics intersects with topics in Reference genome and Sequence assembly.
Rasmus Nielsen spends much of his time researching Genetics, Evolutionary biology, Genome, Selection and Gene. His research investigates the link between Genetics and topics such as Computational biology that cross with problems in DNA sequencing. His research investigates the connection between Evolutionary biology and topics such as Phylogenetics that intersect with issues in Phylogenetic tree.
His Genome study is mostly concerned with Genomics and Human genome. His research is interdisciplinary, bridging the disciplines of Negative selection and Selection. His biological study focuses on Molecular evolution.
Rasmus Nielsen mainly focuses on Evolutionary biology, Genetics, Adaptation, Genome and Introgression. His Evolutionary biology research includes elements of Phylogenetic tree, Selection, Phylogenetics, Allele and Genetic variation. Genotyping, Heteroplasmy, Mitochondrial DNA, Pedigree chart and Genome-wide association study are subfields of Genetics in which his conducts study.
Rasmus Nielsen has researched Adaptation in several fields, including Species distribution and Subsistence agriculture. His study looks at the relationship between Genome and fields such as Ancient DNA, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems. He focuses mostly in the field of Introgression, narrowing it down to topics relating to Gene flow and, in certain cases, Genetic structure.
The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Evolutionary biology, Genetics, Adaptation, Allele and Natural selection. Rasmus Nielsen combines subjects such as Genome, Genomics, Human migration, Phylogenetics and Haplotype with his study of Evolutionary biology. His Genome study combines topics in areas such as Effective population size and Selection.
Rasmus Nielsen combines topics linked to Hepatitis B with his work on Genetics. Rasmus Nielsen combines subjects such as Piwi-interacting RNA, Genetic variation, Genome-wide association study and Non invasive with his study of Allele. As a member of one scientific family, he mostly works in the field of Natural selection, focusing on Most recent common ancestor and, on occasion, Nonsynonymous substitution and Divergence.
