Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Mutation
  • Genetics

Genetics, Genome, Gene, Genomics and Computational biology are his primary areas of study. His Genetics study focuses mostly on Human genome, Exome sequencing, Whole genome sequencing, DNA sequencing and Sequence analysis. His Genome research incorporates elements of Evolutionary biology and Sequence assembly.

His Genomics study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Genome-wide association study, Genetic variation and 1000 Genomes Project. Richard A. Gibbs works mostly in the field of Computational biology, limiting it down to topics relating to Cancer genome sequencing and, in certain cases, DNA sequencing theory, Personal genomics and Hybrid genome assembly. His DNA methylation research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Cancer research, microRNA and Somatic cell.

His most cited work include:

  • Initial sequencing and analysis of the human genome. (18816 citations)
  • A global reference for human genetic variation. (7825 citations)
  • A Map of Human Genome Variation From Population-Scale Sequencing (6302 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Genetics, Gene, Exome sequencing, Genome and Computational biology. Mutation, Genomics, Human genome, Allele and DNA sequencing are the primary areas of interest in his Genetics study. His research related to Phenotype, Locus and Exon might be considered part of Gene.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Sanger sequencing, Missense mutation, Bioinformatics and Candidate gene. His Genome study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Evolutionary biology and Sequence assembly.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (51.44%)
  • Gene (20.74%)
  • Exome sequencing (21.56%)

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

  • Genetics (51.44%)
  • Exome sequencing (21.56%)
  • Gene (20.74%)

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

Richard A. Gibbs mostly deals with Genetics, Exome sequencing, Gene, Genome and Evolutionary biology. His work on Genetics deals in particular with Phenotype, Missense mutation, Candidate gene, Allele and Locus. His study in Exome sequencing is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Oligogenic Inheritance, Locus heterogeneity, Proband and Copy-number variation.

Richard A. Gibbs combines topics linked to Cancer research with his work on Gene. Richard A. Gibbs combines subjects such as Computational biology, Mutation rate and Germline with his study of Genome. His Evolutionary biology study incorporates themes from Genome evolution, Phylogenetic tree, Gene family, Comparative genomics and Phylogenetics.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Pan-cancer analysis of whole genomes (538 citations)
  • Temporal development of the gut microbiome in early childhood from the TEDDY study (397 citations)
  • Genomic and Functional Approaches to Understanding Cancer Aneuploidy (296 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Mutation
  • DNA

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Genome, Evolutionary biology, Gene, Exome sequencing and Genetics. His work carried out in the field of Genome brings together such families of science as Hemiptera, Ecology and Germline. His Evolutionary biology research includes themes of Gene family, Comparative genomics, Phylogenetics, Molecular evolution and Gene flow.

Chromophobe cell, CDKN2A, Papillary renal cell carcinomas and Clear cell renal cell carcinoma is closely connected to Cancer research in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Gene. The concepts of his Exome sequencing study are interwoven with issues in Oligogenic Inheritance, Genotyping, Genome-wide association study and Copy-number variation. His research integrates issues of Genetic variation, Allele, Computational biology, Human genetics and Mendelian inheritance in his study of Genomics.
