Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Enzyme
  • Gene
  • Biochemistry

Richard A. Dixon mainly focuses on Biochemistry, Phenylpropanoid, Botany, Lignin and Cell biology. Many of his studies on Biochemistry involve topics that are commonly interrelated, such as Medicago truncatula. His research in Phenylpropanoid intersects with topics in Phenylalanine ammonia-lyase, Phenylalanine, Genetically modified crops, Transgene and Tobacco mosaic virus.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Expressed sequence tag and Flavonoid, Isoflavonoid. His Lignin research incorporates elements of Biofuel, Cell wall, Forage and Caffeic acid. His Cell biology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Arabidopsis thaliana, Arabidopsis, Hypersensitive response and Pseudomonas syringae.

His most cited work include:

  • Stress-Induced Phenylpropanoid Metabolism. (3298 citations)
  • THE OXIDATIVE BURST IN PLANT DISEASE RESISTANCE (2704 citations)
  • H2O2 from the oxidative burst orchestrates the plant hypersensitive disease resistance response (2404 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Biochemistry, Lignin, Botany, Elicitor and Enzyme. His Biochemistry study often links to related topics such as Medicago truncatula. He has included themes like Genetically modified crops, Cell wall, Caffeic acid and Monolignol in his Lignin study.

His Genetically modified crops study incorporates themes from Plant disease resistance and Biotechnology. In his work, Gene is strongly intertwined with Cell biology, which is a subfield of Botany. His study on Elicitor also encompasses disciplines like

  • Medicarpin most often made with reference to Phytoalexin,
  • Chalcone synthase that intertwine with fields like Molecular biology and Promoter.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Biochemistry (59.94%)
  • Lignin (27.07%)
  • Botany (20.34%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2013-2021)?

  • Lignin (27.07%)
  • Biochemistry (59.94%)
  • Cell wall (13.15%)

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

Richard A. Dixon spends much of his time researching Lignin, Biochemistry, Cell wall, Botany and Medicago truncatula. Richard A. Dixon interconnects Cellulose, Brachypodium distachyon, Genetically modified crops, Caffeic acid and Biomass in the investigation of issues within Lignin. Biosynthesis, Arabidopsis thaliana, Mutant, Enzyme and Arabidopsis are the core of his Biochemistry study.

His Cell wall study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Polysaccharide, Transcription factor and Cell biology. His studies deal with areas such as Shikimic acid, Brassinosteroid and Biofuel crop as well as Botany. His Medicago truncatula research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Monolignol, Anthocyanidin reductase, Flavonoid, Functional genomics and Leucoanthocyanidin reductase.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Lignin Valorization: Improving Lignin Processing in the Biorefinery (1759 citations)
  • Genetically Engineered Crops: Experiences and Prospects (198 citations)
  • Development and use of a switchgrass ( Panicum virgatum L.) transformation pipeline by the BioEnergy Science Center to evaluate plants for reduced cell wall recalcitrance (107 citations)

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

  • Enzyme
  • Gene
  • DNA

Richard A. Dixon mostly deals with Lignin, Biochemistry, Biomass, Botany and Genetically modified crops. His work in Lignin tackles topics such as Monomer which are related to areas like Yield, Size-exclusion chromatography and Dispersity. As part of his studies on Biochemistry, Richard A. Dixon often connects relevant areas like Medicago truncatula.

His study in Biomass is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Sugar, Cellulosic ethanol and Pulp and paper industry. His Botany study combines topics in areas such as Shikimic acid and Biosynthesis. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Genetically modified crops, Agronomy is strongly linked to Bioenergy.
