Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Bacteria
  • Gene
  • Virus

His primary scientific interests are in Microbiology, Bartonella, Virology, Fastidious organism and Ecology. His Microbiology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Parachlamydiaceae, Parachlamydia acanthamoebae, 16S ribosomal RNA, Parachlamydia and Legionella. Richard J. Birtles has included themes like Bartonella grahamii, Bartonella henselae, Bartonella tribocorum and Cat flea in his Bartonella study.

His Virology research integrates issues from Giant Virus and Acanthamoeba. His work deals with themes such as Zoology, Bartonella Infection and Soil microbiology, which intersect with Ecology. Richard J. Birtles studied Bartonella Infection and Evolutionary biology that intersect with Immunology.

His most cited work include:

  • A Giant Virus in Amoebae (590 citations)
  • Species Interactions in a Parasite Community Drive Infection Risk in a Wildlife Population (405 citations)
  • Guidelines for the diagnosis of tick-borne bacterial diseases in Europe (303 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Microbiology, Virology, Bartonella, Zoology and Genetics. The various areas that Richard J. Birtles examines in his Microbiology study include Legionella, 16S ribosomal RNA, Bacteria and Polymerase chain reaction. His study in Virology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Veterinary medicine, Bartonella henselae, Genotype and Cat-scratch disease.

In his study, Bartonella tribocorum is inextricably linked to Bartonella grahamii, which falls within the broad field of Bartonella. His Zoology study incorporates themes from Ecology and Field vole. His Bartonella Infection research incorporates themes from Bartonella taylorii and Host.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Microbiology (23.87%)
  • Virology (24.52%)
  • Bartonella (23.87%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2010-2021)?

  • Veterinary medicine (16.13%)
  • Microbiology (23.87%)
  • Zoology (16.77%)

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

His main research concerns Veterinary medicine, Microbiology, Zoology, Virology and Multilocus sequence typing. He has researched Veterinary medicine in several fields, including Anaplasma phagocytophilum and Genotype. The study incorporates disciplines such as 16S ribosomal RNA and Polymerase chain reaction in addition to Microbiology.

His studies in Zoology integrate themes in fields like Ecology, Bartonella and Field vole. Richard J. Birtles incorporates Virology and Actinobacillus Infections in his research. His research integrates issues of Bartonella henselae, Phylogenetics and Phylogenetic tree in his study of Multilocus sequence typing.

Between 2010 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • An immunological marker of tolerance to infection in wild rodents. (68 citations)
  • Characterization of Novel Bovine Gastrointestinal Tract Treponema Isolates and Comparison with Bovine Digital Dermatitis Treponemes (61 citations)
  • The analysis of immunological profiles in wild animals: a case study on immunodynamics in the field vole, Microtus agrestis (54 citations)

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

  • Bacteria
  • Gene
  • Virus

Richard J. Birtles mostly deals with Bartonella Infection, Zoology, Anaplasma phagocytophilum, Veterinary medicine and Bartonella. His Bartonella Infection study is concerned with Virology in general. The Zoology study combines topics in areas such as Oroya and Anaplasmosis, Ecology, Tick.

Richard J. Birtles interconnects Ixodes, Ixodes trianguliceps, Tick-borne fever, Post infection and Genotyping in the investigation of issues within Anaplasma phagocytophilum. His Veterinary medicine study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Secondary infection, 16S ribosomal RNA, Outbreak, Carrion's disease and Verruga peruana. His study in the field of Bartonella bacilliformis is also linked to topics like Molecular interactions.
