Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Bacteria

His primary areas of investigation include CRISPR, Genetics, Genome, CRISPR Loci and Cas9. His CRISPR study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as RNA, Computational biology and DNA. His studies in CRISPR Spacers, CRISPR interference, Bacteriophage, Plasmid and Gene are all subfields of Genetics research.

His studies deal with areas such as Bacterial genetics and Phylogenetics as well as Genome. His research investigates the connection with Cas9 and areas like Genome editing which intersect with concerns in Historical Article, Identification and MOLECULAR BIOLOGY METHODS. He interconnects CRISPR/Cpf1 and Locus in the investigation of issues within Protospacer adjacent motif.

His most cited work include:

  • CRISPR provides acquired resistance against viruses in prokaryotes (3522 citations)
  • Cas9–crRNA ribonucleoprotein complex mediates specific DNA cleavage for adaptive immunity in bacteria (1659 citations)
  • Evolution and classification of the CRISPR-Cas systems (1605 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in CRISPR, Genetics, Genome, Computational biology and Microbiology. In most of his CRISPR studies, his work intersects topics such as Plasmid. His Genetics research focuses on Gene, DNA, Locus, CRISPR Spacers and Bacteriophage.

His work investigates the relationship between Genome and topics such as Lactobacillus that intersect with problems in Comparative genomics. His Microbiology study combines topics in areas such as Bifidobacterium animalis and Bacteria. His studies in Trans-activating crRNA integrate themes in fields like CRISPR interference and Protospacer adjacent motif.

He most often published in these fields:

  • CRISPR (54.31%)
  • Genetics (49.06%)
  • Genome (32.58%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • CRISPR (54.31%)
  • Computational biology (22.85%)
  • Genome (32.58%)

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

His main research concerns CRISPR, Computational biology, Genome, Genome editing and Gene. His study in CRISPR focuses on Cas9 in particular. His work on Protospacer adjacent motif as part of general Cas9 study is frequently connected to Epigenome, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them.

His research in Computational biology intersects with topics in Trans-activating crRNA, Transcriptional regulation, Genome engineering and Genomics. His Genome study is focused on Genetics in general. His work carried out in the field of Gene brings together such families of science as Cell biology, Effector, Lactobacillus crispatus and Microbiology.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Evolutionary classification of CRISPR-Cas systems: a burst of class 2 and derived variants. (282 citations)
  • Bile salt hydrolases: Gatekeepers of bile acid metabolism and host-microbiome crosstalk in the gastrointestinal tract. (46 citations)
  • Genome editing using the endogenous type I CRISPR-Cas system in Lactobacillus crispatus (42 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Bacteria

CRISPR, Computational biology, Genome, Genome editing and Gene are his primary areas of study. CRISPR is the subject of his research, which falls under Genetics. His Computational biology study incorporates themes from Trans-activating crRNA, Cell, CRISPR Spacers and Transcriptional regulation.

His study of CRISPR Loci is a part of Genome. The study incorporates disciplines such as Food quality, Robustness, Repurposing and Effector in addition to Genome editing. His work deals with themes such as Lactobacillus crispatus and Functional diversity, which intersect with Gene.
