His primary areas of investigation include Genetics, Heterochromatin, Centromere, Heterochromatin assembly and Schizosaccharomyces pombe. Genetics is a component of his Chromatin, Heterochromatin protein 1, Chromosome, Telomere and RNA interference studies. His Telomere study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Evolutionary biology, Molecular biology, Telomerase and Repetitive Sequences.
His work carried out in the field of Telomerase brings together such families of science as Carcinogenesis, Cancer research and Somatic cell. His Heterochromatin study frequently intersects with other fields, such as Cell biology. His Centromere research includes themes of Sister chromatids and Chromosome segregation.
Robin C. Allshire mainly investigates Genetics, Centromere, Chromatin, Cell biology and Heterochromatin. His work deals with themes such as Sister chromatids, Anaphase, Kinetochore and Chromosome segregation, which intersect with Centromere. His Chromatin study combines topics in areas such as Evolutionary biology, Molecular biology, Histone and Epigenetics.
His research on Cell biology also deals with topics like
Robin C. Allshire spends much of his time researching Cell biology, Heterochromatin, Chromatin, Histone and Schizosaccharomyces pombe. His studies deal with areas such as Piwi-interacting RNA and DNA methylation as well as Cell biology. His DNA methylation study improves the overall literature in Genetics.
H3K4me3 is the focus of his Genetics research. Robin C. Allshire combines subjects such as Gene silencing, Mitotic chromosome and Schizosaccharomyces with his study of Heterochromatin. His research on Chromatin frequently links to adjacent areas such as Centromere.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Cell biology, Histone, DNA methylation, Germline and Gene. His Histone research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Bivalent, Chromatin, Heterochromatin, Centromere and Schizosaccharomyces. Robin C. Allshire interconnects Gene silencing, Gene expression, Cellular differentiation and DNA repair in the investigation of issues within Heterochromatin.
His Centromere study incorporates themes from Histone H3, Chromatin remodeling and Nucleosome. His DNA methylation study is associated with Genetics. His work in the fields of Schizosaccharomyces pombe overlaps with other areas such as Conserved sequence.
