Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Bacteria
  • Gene
  • Enzyme

His primary areas of investigation include Biofilm, Microbiology, Bacteria, Mutant and Bacillus subtilis. The study incorporates disciplines such as Ecology, Pilus and Extracellular matrix, Matrix, Cell biology in addition to Biofilm. His studies deal with areas such as El Tor, Vibrio cholerae, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Bacterial genetics and Virulence as well as Microbiology.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Biochemistry and MEDLINE. His study in Mutant is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Mutation, Fimbria, Escherichia coli and Flagellum. His studies examine the connections between Bacillus subtilis and genetics, as well as such issues in Cellular differentiation, with regards to Sporogenesis, Surfactin and Spore.

His most cited work include:

  • Biofilm Formation as Microbial Development (2459 citations)
  • Flagellar and twitching motility are necessary for Pseudomonas aeruginosa biofilm development (2142 citations)
  • Initiation of biofilm formation in Pseudomonas fluorescens WCS365 proceeds via multiple, convergent signalling pathways: a genetic analysis (1973 citations)

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

Roberto Kolter mainly investigates Biofilm, Microbiology, Biochemistry, Bacillus subtilis and Bacteria. He interconnects Ecology, Biophysics and Extracellular matrix, Motility, Cell biology in the investigation of issues within Biofilm. His Cell biology research incorporates elements of Cell type and Cellular differentiation.

His research integrates issues of Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Flagellum and Pilus, Virulence in his study of Microbiology. He works mostly in the field of Bacillus subtilis, limiting it down to concerns involving Gene and, occasionally, Molecular biology. Many of his studies involve connections with topics such as Escherichia coli and Mutant.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Biofilm (32.59%)
  • Microbiology (31.63%)
  • Biochemistry (23.64%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2013-2021)?

  • Microbiology (31.63%)
  • Ecology (9.27%)
  • Bacillus subtilis (23.00%)

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

Roberto Kolter focuses on Microbiology, Ecology, Bacillus subtilis, Bacteria and Biofilm. His Microbiology research incorporates themes from Virulence factor, Expansin and Strain. In the field of Ecology, his study on Ecology overlaps with subjects such as Bacillus species.

He has researched Bacillus subtilis in several fields, including Gene, Multicellular organism, Cell type and Cell biology. The various areas that Roberto Kolter examines in his Bacteria study include Antibiotics and Roseobacter. His studies in Biofilm integrate themes in fields like Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Biochemistry, Aspergillus niger.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Simplified and representative bacterial community of maize roots. (192 citations)
  • Biofilm Formation As a Response to Ecological Competition. (151 citations)
  • From cell differentiation to cell collectives: Bacillus subtilis uses division of labor to migrate (125 citations)

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

  • Bacteria
  • Gene
  • Enzyme

Roberto Kolter mainly focuses on Bacillus subtilis, Ecology, Biofilm, Microbiology and Bacteria. His Bacillus subtilis research is classified as research in Genetics. Roberto Kolter focuses mostly in the field of Ecology, narrowing it down to topics relating to Biological evolution and, in certain cases, Bacterial Physiological Phenomena, Evolutionary biology, Genomic data, Eco evolutionary and Ecosystem.

His research investigates the connection between Biofilm and topics such as Pseudomonas aeruginosa that intersect with problems in Motility, Flagellum and Competition. The Microbiology study combines topics in areas such as Gene cluster and Expression vector. His Bacteria research includes themes of Biochemistry and Algae.
