What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • Genetics

Rong Li mainly focuses on Cell biology, Arp2/3 complex, Cytoskeleton, Actin and MDia1. The concepts of his Cell biology study are interwoven with issues in Actin cytoskeleton, Actin remodeling, Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Cell polarity. Rong Li focuses mostly in the field of Actin cytoskeleton, narrowing it down to matters related to Polar body and, in some cases, Cytoplasmic streaming and Nocodazole.

His Arp2/3 complex study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Actin-Related Protein 2-3 Complex and Actin-Related Protein 3. His study focuses on the intersection of Cytoskeleton and fields such as Protein filament with connections in the field of Biophysics, Actin filament branching and Protein structure. His studies deal with areas such as Septin ring, Cytokinesis and Septin as well as Actin.

His most cited work include:

  • Feedback control of mitosis in budding yeast (1037 citations)
  • Activation of Arp2/3 complex-mediated actin polymerization by cortactin. (479 citations)
  • Activation of the Cdc42 Effector N-Wasp by the Shigella flexneri Icsa Protein Promotes Actin Nucleation by Arp2/3 Complex and Bacterial Actin-Based Motility (452 citations)

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

Rong Li spends much of his time researching Cell biology, Actin, Genetics, Arp2/3 complex and Cell polarity. His studies in Cell biology integrate themes in fields like Actin cytoskeleton, Actin remodeling, Cytoskeleton, Cytokinesis and Saccharomyces cerevisiae. His Actin research focuses on subjects like Cell, which are linked to Organelle.

The various areas that Rong Li examines in his Arp2/3 complex study include Biophysics, Actin-Related Protein 2-3 Complex, MDia1, Lamellipodium and Actin-Related Protein 3. In his study, Guanine nucleotide exchange factor is strongly linked to CDC42, which falls under the umbrella field of Cell polarity. His Aneuploidy research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Transcriptome, Ploidy and Karyotype.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Cell biology (95.88%)
  • Actin (28.81%)
  • Genetics (34.57%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Cell biology (95.88%)
  • Mitochondrion (11.11%)
  • Chromosome segregation (14.81%)

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

His main research concerns Cell biology, Mitochondrion, Chromosome segregation, Aneuploidy and Transcriptome. Rong Li studies Cell biology, namely Effector. His study on Mitochondrion also encompasses disciplines like

  • Proteostasis that intertwine with fields like Cytosol, Enzyme, Citric acid cycle and Mitochondrial matrix,
  • Organelle which is related to area like Vesicle, Protein domain, Actin nucleation, Actin and Cell.

His studies in Actin integrate themes in fields like Cell migration and Arp2/3 complex. The study incorporates disciplines such as Ran, Meiosis and Mutant in addition to Chromosome segregation. His Aneuploidy research incorporates themes from Ploidy and Karyotype.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Genetic predisposition to mosaic Y chromosome loss in blood. (50 citations)
  • Single-cell morphology encodes metastatic potential. (25 citations)
  • Hypo-osmotic-like stress underlies general cellular defects of aneuploidy (25 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • Genetics

His scientific interests lie mostly in Cell biology, Mitochondrion, Organelle, Cell and Vesicle. The Cell biology study combines topics in areas such as Aneuploidy, Karyotype, Endocytic recycling, Cancer cell and Ploidy. His research in Mitochondrion intersects with topics in Proteostasis, Nuclear gene and Cytosol.

His research integrates issues of Phenotype, Cell culture, Breast cancer and Gene expression profiling in his study of Cell. His work deals with themes such as Protein domain, Endoplasmic reticulum, Actin nucleation and Actin, which intersect with Vesicle.
