Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Virus
  • Gene
  • Virology

Robert G. Webster mainly focuses on Virology, Virus, Influenza A virus subtype H5N1, Influenza A virus and H5N1 genetic structure. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Virology, Immunization is strongly linked to Microbiology. The study of Virus is intertwined with the study of Gene in a number of ways.

His Influenza A virus subtype H5N1 research includes elements of Viral disease, Viral evolution and Outbreak. His biological study deals with issues like Waterfowl, which deal with fields such as Natural reservoir. Robert G. Webster works mostly in the field of Neuraminidase, limiting it down to concerns involving Mutant and, occasionally, Molecular biology.

His most cited work include:

  • Evolution and ecology of influenza A viruses. (3396 citations)
  • Universal primer set for the full-length amplification of all influenza A viruses. (1611 citations)
  • A DNA transfection system for generation of influenza A virus from eight plasmids (1279 citations)

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

Robert G. Webster mainly investigates Virology, Virus, Influenza A virus subtype H5N1, Influenza A virus and H5N1 genetic structure. His work on Orthomyxoviridae, Hemagglutinin and Neuraminidase is typically connected to Pandemic as part of general Virology study, connecting several disciplines of science. The study incorporates disciplines such as Nucleic acid sequence and Vaccination in addition to Orthomyxoviridae.

His research integrates issues of Gene and Antigen in his study of Virus. His Influenza A virus subtype H5N1 study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Transmission, Waterfowl, Viral disease and Outbreak. His studies deal with areas such as Epitope, Molecular biology, Influenza a and Virulence as well as Influenza A virus.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Virology (105.14%)
  • Virus (83.79%)
  • Influenza A virus subtype H5N1 (57.53%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2009-2021)?

  • Virology (105.14%)
  • Virus (83.79%)
  • Influenza A virus subtype H5N1 (57.53%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Virology, Virus, Influenza A virus subtype H5N1, Influenza A virus and Neuraminidase. His work in the fields of Virology, such as Hemagglutinin and Viral replication, overlaps with other areas such as H5N1 genetic structure and Pandemic. His Orthomyxoviridae study, which is part of a larger body of work in Virus, is frequently linked to Reassortment, bridging the gap between disciplines.

Robert G. Webster has researched Influenza A virus subtype H5N1 in several fields, including Host, Clade and Outbreak. His Influenza A virus study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Zoology, Ecology, Viral evolution, Natural reservoir and Phylogenetics. His Gene study combines topics in areas such as Interferon and Innate immune system.

Between 2009 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Textbook of Influenza (649 citations)
  • The genesis and source of the H7N9 influenza viruses causing human infections in China (345 citations)
  • Association of RIG-I with innate immunity of ducks to influenza (306 citations)

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

  • Virus
  • Gene
  • DNA

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Virology, Virus, Influenza A virus, Influenza A virus subtype H5N1 and Neuraminidase. Many of his research projects under Virology are closely connected to Pandemic, H5N1 genetic structure and Reassortment with Pandemic, H5N1 genetic structure and Reassortment, tying the diverse disciplines of science together. His work carried out in the field of Orthomyxoviridae brings together such families of science as Hemagglutination assay, Antibody, Neutralizing antibody and Virulence.

The concepts of his Virus study are interwoven with issues in Mutation, Microbiology and Transmission. His research in Influenza A virus intersects with topics in Natural reservoir, Interferon, Viral evolution and Viral shedding. His Influenza A virus subtype H5N1 research includes themes of Innate immune system, Immune system, Gene and Outbreak.
