Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Genetics

Robert E. Ferrell focuses on Genetics, Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Allele and Allele frequency. His research investigates the link between Genetics and topics such as Age-related maculopathy that cross with problems in Candidate gene and Case-control study. Robert E. Ferrell interconnects Genotype and Cardiology in the investigation of issues within Internal medicine.

His study brings together the fields of Polymorphism and Endocrinology. Robert E. Ferrell has researched Allele in several fields, including Apolipoprotein E, Serotonergic, Immunology and Locus. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Allele frequency, Evolutionary biology is strongly linked to Genetic marker.

His most cited work include:

  • Mutations in SDHD, a Mitochondrial Complex II Gene, in Hereditary Paraganglioma (1355 citations)
  • Deficiency of Subsarcolemmal Mitochondria in Obesity and Type 2 Diabetes (690 citations)
  • Estimating African American admixture proportions by use of population-specific alleles. (687 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Internal medicine, Genetics, Endocrinology, Allele and Genotype. His work deals with themes such as Single-nucleotide polymorphism, Polymorphism and Oncology, which intersect with Internal medicine. His Single-nucleotide polymorphism study combines topics in areas such as Haplotype and Candidate gene.

His study in Gene, Genetic linkage, Locus, Genetic variation and Genetic marker is done as part of Genetics. His Genetic linkage research includes elements of Chromosome and Gene mapping. He combines subjects such as Isoelectric focusing, Molecular biology and Population genetics with his study of Allele.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (42.53%)
  • Genetics (37.27%)
  • Endocrinology (32.18%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2007-2019)?

  • Internal medicine (42.53%)
  • Endocrinology (32.18%)
  • Single-nucleotide polymorphism (9.03%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Single-nucleotide polymorphism, Genotype and Allele. His studies in Internal medicine integrate themes in fields like Gastroenterology, Oncology and Depression. He has included themes like Receptor, Apolipoprotein E and Polymorphism in his Endocrinology study.

His Single-nucleotide polymorphism study is concerned with the larger field of Genetics. His Allele research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Developmental psychology and Body mass index. His Allele frequency research incorporates elements of Case-control study and Genetic variation.

Between 2007 and 2019, his most popular works were:

  • The same sequence variant on 9p21 associates with myocardial infarction, abdominal aortic aneurysm and intracranial aneurysm (646 citations)
  • Genetic variation in components of dopamine neurotransmission impacts ventral striatal reactivity associated with impulsivity. (350 citations)
  • Genetic variation in human NPY expression affects stress response and emotion (349 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Mutation

His main research concerns Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Single-nucleotide polymorphism, Allele and Immunology. His research in Internal medicine intersects with topics in Gastroenterology, Oncology, Depression and Pathology. His studies deal with areas such as Imaging genetics, Receptor, Apolipoprotein E and Impulsivity as well as Endocrinology.

His Single-nucleotide polymorphism study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Odds ratio, Body mass index, Genetic testing and Bioinformatics. Allele is the subject of his research, which falls under Genetics. His work on Gene, Primary lymphedema and Lymphedema as part of general Genetics study is frequently linked to Complement component 2, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science.
