Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Bacteria
  • DNA

Rob Lavigne focuses on Microbiology, Bacteriophage, Genome, Phage therapy and Genetics. His Microbiology research includes themes of Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Bacteria, Lysin and Virology. Rob Lavigne combines topics linked to Lytic cycle with his work on Bacteriophage.

His work carried out in the field of Lytic cycle brings together such families of science as Myoviridae, Lysozyme and Escherichia coli. His work deals with themes such as Evolutionary biology, Computational biology and Metagenomics, which intersect with Genome. His Phage therapy study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Pathogen, Clinical trial, Interactome, Bacteriophage Therapy and Pseudomonas.

His most cited work include:

  • Minimum Information about a Biosynthetic Gene cluster. (418 citations)
  • Quality-controlled small-scale production of a well-defined bacteriophage cocktail for use in human clinical trials. (327 citations)
  • Unifying classical and molecular taxonomic classification: analysis of the Podoviridae using BLASTP-based tools. (216 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Microbiology, Bacteriophage, Genetics, Genome and Lytic cycle. His Microbiology research incorporates elements of Phage therapy, Lysin, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Bacteria and Virulence. The study incorporates disciplines such as Pseudomonas and Biofilm in addition to Pseudomonas aeruginosa.

His Bacteriophage research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of RNA, Computational biology, Antibiotic resistance and Virology. He has researched Genome in several fields, including Proteome and DNA, DNA sequencing. His research brings together the fields of Staphylococcus aureus and Lytic cycle.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Microbiology (40.80%)
  • Bacteriophage (32.21%)
  • Genetics (23.62%)

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

  • Microbiology (40.80%)
  • Genetics (23.62%)
  • Genome (21.47%)

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

His primary areas of study are Microbiology, Genetics, Genome, Bacteriophage and Lytic cycle. His studies deal with areas such as Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Bacteria and Phage therapy as well as Microbiology. The Pseudomonas aeruginosa study combines topics in areas such as Pseudomonas, Bacterial virus and Biofilm.

His Genome study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Evolutionary biology, Computational biology, DNA sequencing and Metagenomics. His work carried out in the field of Bacteriophage brings together such families of science as RNA, Pectobacterium, Subfamily and Antibiotic resistance. In his work, Bacterial outer membrane and Protein engineering is strongly intertwined with Lysin, which is a subfield of Lytic cycle.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Taxonomic assignment of uncultivated prokaryotic virus genomes is enabled by gene-sharing networks (128 citations)
  • Minimum information about an uncultivated virus genome (MIUVIG) (123 citations)
  • Targeting mechanisms of tailed bacteriophages (108 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Bacteria

Rob Lavigne spends much of his time researching Genetics, Bacteriophage, Gene, Lytic cycle and Genome. His study in Bacteriophage is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Concomitant and Antibiotics, Antibiotic resistance, Bacteria. His Gene study improves the overall literature in Biochemistry.

The various areas that Rob Lavigne examines in his Lytic cycle study include Microbiology and Virulence. His Microbiology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Bacterial capsule, Lysis and Phage therapy. As part of one scientific family, he deals mainly with the area of Genome, narrowing it down to issues related to the Metagenomics, and often Virus classification, Computational biology, Virus and Annotation.
