1995 - Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada

Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • RNA

His main research concerns Genetics, RNA, Stereochemistry, Phylogenetics and Ribozyme. His Genetics research focuses on Gene, Genome, Phylogenetic tree, 5S ribosomal RNA and RNA polymerase. He works mostly in the field of Genome, limiting it down to topics relating to Mitochondrial DNA and, in certain cases, Mitochondrion and Lineage.

Biochemistry covers Robert Cedergren research in RNA. His Stereochemistry research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Deoxyribonucleotide, Molecule, Enzyme kinetics and Ribonucleoside. His research in Phylogenetics focuses on subjects like Ribosomal RNA, which are connected to Organelle, Symbiogenesis, Plastid, Aerobic bacteria and Homology.

His most cited work include:

  • An ancestral mitochondrial DNA resembling a eubacterial genome in miniature (539 citations)
  • The automated chemical synthesis of long oligoribuncleotides using 2'-O-silylated ribonucleoside 3'-O-phosphoramidites on a controlled-pore glass support: synthesis of a 43-nucleotide sequence similar to the 3'-half molecule of an Escherichia coli formylmethionine tRNA (394 citations)
  • Gene order comparisons for phylogenetic inference: evolution of the mitochondrial genome. (357 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are RNA, Genetics, Transfer RNA, Biochemistry and Gene. His research integrates issues of Molecular biology, Stereochemistry and DNA in his study of RNA. Many of his studies involve connections with topics such as Computational biology and Genetics.

His study on Transfer RNA also encompasses disciplines like

  • Protein secondary structure which is related to area like Algorithm,
  • Nucleic acid sequence that intertwine with fields like Protein primary structure. Robert Cedergren works in the field of Gene, focusing on Genomic organization in particular. The various areas that he examines in his Ribozyme study include Deoxyribonucleotide and Enzyme kinetics.

He most often published in these fields:

  • RNA (47.48%)
  • Genetics (39.57%)
  • Transfer RNA (33.81%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 1995-2002)?

  • RNA (47.48%)
  • Genetics (39.57%)
  • Molecular biology (14.39%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in RNA, Genetics, Molecular biology, Ribozyme and Stereochemistry. His study in RNA is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Crystallography, Computational biology and DNA. His study in Gene, Transfer RNA, Genome, Intron and Polymerase is carried out as part of his studies in Genetics.

His work on Phylogenetics, Gene duplication and Sequence alignment as part of his general Gene study is frequently connected to Hepacivirus, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science. Robert Cedergren interconnects Expressed sequence tag, Fungal protein and Plant virus in the investigation of issues within Ribozyme. His Stereochemistry research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Structure–activity relationship and Nucleic acid.

Between 1995 and 2002, his most popular works were:

  • An ancestral mitochondrial DNA resembling a eubacterial genome in miniature (539 citations)
  • GENOME STRUCTURE AND GENE CONTENT IN PROTIST MITOCHONDRIAL DNAS (314 citations)
  • Schistosome Satellite DNA Encodes Active Hammerhead Ribozymes (141 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • RNA

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in RNA, Genetics, Gene, Stereochemistry and Phylogenetics. The concepts of his RNA study are interwoven with issues in Crystallography and Protein secondary structure. His research in Gene is mostly concerned with Genome.

His work focuses on many connections between Genome and other disciplines, such as Mitochondrial DNA, that overlap with his field of interest in 5S ribosomal RNA, Genomic organization, Ribosomal RNA and Comparative genomics. He has researched Stereochemistry in several fields, including Hydrophobic effect and DNA gyrase. His Hammerhead ribozyme study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Mammalian CPEB3 ribozyme, DNA, Molecular biology, Satellite DNA and VS ribozyme.
