Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Genome

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Genetics, Epigenetics, Regulation of gene expression, DNA methylation and Arabidopsis. His RNA-Directed DNA Methylation, Transposable element, Gene, Argonaute and RNA interference investigations are all subjects of Genetics research. In his study, RNA-induced transcriptional silencing and Centromere is strongly linked to Heterochromatin, which falls under the umbrella field of RNA interference.

His Epigenetics research includes elements of Epigenesis and Allele. The DNA methylation study combines topics in areas such as Chromatin remodeling and Retrotransposon. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Enhancer, Enhancer trap and Cellular differentiation.

His most cited work include:

  • The B73 Maize Genome: Complexity, Diversity, and Dynamics (3021 citations)
  • Regulation of heterochromatic silencing and histone H3 lysine-9 methylation by RNAi. (1818 citations)
  • Transposable elements and the epigenetic regulation of the genome. (1386 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Genetics, Gene, Genome, Transposable element and Arabidopsis. His work is connected to Epigenetics, DNA methylation, Heterochromatin, RNA interference and RNA silencing, as a part of Genetics. As part of the same scientific family, Robert A. Martienssen usually focuses on RNA interference, concentrating on Gene silencing and intersecting with microRNA and Regulation of gene expression.

His research investigates the connection with Gene and areas like Molecular biology which intersect with concerns in Small interfering RNA. Robert A. Martienssen has researched Genome in several fields, including Computational biology and Genomic library. His studies in Arabidopsis integrate themes in fields like Arabidopsis thaliana and Genome evolution.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (86.14%)
  • Gene (31.33%)
  • Genome (23.49%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Genetics (86.14%)
  • Cell biology (19.88%)
  • Transposable element (23.49%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Genetics, Cell biology, Transposable element, Arabidopsis and Small RNA. His research related to Gene, Arabidopsis thaliana, Epigenetics, DNA methylation and Heterochromatin might be considered part of Genetics. He specializes in Gene, namely Genome.

His study in Cell biology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both DNA, RNA interference, microRNA, Gene silencing and Transcription. His Transposable element study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Chromatin and Genomics. Robert A. Martienssen combines subjects such as Histone H3, Retrotransposon and Genomic imprinting with his study of Small RNA.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The expanding world of small RNAs in plants (479 citations)
  • Insights into Land Plant Evolution Garnered from the Marchantia polymorpha Genome (433 citations)
  • Loss of Karma transposon methylation underlies the mantled somaclonal variant of oil palm (236 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Genome

His main research concerns Genetics, Cell biology, Arabidopsis, Transposable element and Retrotransposon. His studies in Gene, Epigenetics, Heterochromatin, RNA interference and DNA methylation are all subfields of Genetics research. His Cell biology research integrates issues from RNA silencing and microRNA.

His RNA silencing research includes themes of RNA-induced transcriptional silencing and Transgene. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Arabidopsis, Arabidopsis thaliana, Schizosaccharomyces pombe and Heterochromatin assembly is strongly linked to Euchromatin. His Retrotransposon research focuses on subjects like Small RNA, which are linked to Histone H3, Reverse transcriptase, Endogenous retrovirus, Primer binding site and Long terminal repeat.
