Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • Genome

His primary scientific interests are in Genetics, Genome, Genomics, Anopheles and Comparative genomics. Robert M. Waterhouse works mostly in the field of Genetics, limiting it down to topics relating to Computational biology and, in certain cases, UniProt, as a part of the same area of interest. The study incorporates disciplines such as Annotation, Evolutionary biology and Sequence assembly in addition to Genome.

His Evolutionary biology study incorporates themes from Gene rearrangement and Gene regulatory network. His study in Sequence assembly is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both De novo transcriptome assembly, Information retrieval, Data mining and DNA sequencing. His Comparative genomics study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Phylogenomics and Molecular Sequence Annotation.

His most cited work include:

  • BUSCO: assessing genome assembly and annotation completeness with single-copy orthologs (4384 citations)
  • The genome of the model beetle and pest Tribolium castaneum. (1039 citations)
  • BUSCO Applications from Quality Assessments to Gene Prediction and Phylogenomics. (935 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Genome, Evolutionary biology, Gene, Genetics and Anopheles. His Genome research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Phylogenetics and Computational biology. Robert M. Waterhouse focuses mostly in the field of Computational biology, narrowing it down to matters related to OrthoDB and, in some cases, Data curation.

His Evolutionary biology study also includes

  • Eusociality which intersects with area such as Social evolution,
  • Apocrita that connect with fields like Cephidae. In general Genetics, his work in DNA sequencing, Stop codon and Regulation of gene expression is often linked to InterPro linking many areas of study. His Anopheles study frequently draws connections between related disciplines such as Anopheles gambiae.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genome (84.11%)
  • Evolutionary biology (56.95%)
  • Gene (50.99%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2019-2021)?

  • Genome (84.11%)
  • Evolutionary biology (56.95%)
  • Gene (50.99%)

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

Robert M. Waterhouse spends much of his time researching Genome, Evolutionary biology, Gene, Computational biology and Social evolution. His Genome study focuses on Comparative genomics in particular. Robert M. Waterhouse has researched Comparative genomics in several fields, including Chromosome and Synteny.

Robert M. Waterhouse combines subjects such as Apocrita, Molecular evolution, Phylogenetic tree, Eusociality and Genomics with his study of Evolutionary biology. Gene is the subject of his research, which falls under Genetics. The various areas that he examines in his Computational biology study include Immune system and DNA sequencing.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Gene content evolution in the arthropods (45 citations)
  • Enhanced genome assembly and a new official gene set for Tribolium castaneum (21 citations)
  • Evolutionary superscaffolding and chromosome anchoring to improve Anopheles genome assemblies (21 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Genome
  • Genetics

Robert M. Waterhouse mainly investigates Genome, Evolutionary biology, Phylogenetics, Sequence assembly and Gene. His work in the fields of Genome, such as Comparative genomics, overlaps with other areas such as Anopheles. The concepts of his Comparative genomics study are interwoven with issues in Chromosome and Synteny.

His research integrates issues of Epigenetics, Molecular evolution and Genomics in his study of Evolutionary biology. The Phylogenetics study combines topics in areas such as Genome evolution and Phylogenetic tree. His work carried out in the field of Sequence assembly brings together such families of science as Computational biology and Whole genome sequencing.
