Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Bacteria
  • Ecology
  • Gene

Rudolf Amann mainly investigates Ribosomal RNA, Microbiology, Bacteria, Ecology and Molecular biology. His Ribosomal RNA research includes elements of Proteobacteria, 16S ribosomal RNA, Molecular probe, Phylogenetics and Computational biology. His Microbiology research incorporates themes from Nitrobacter, Nitrifying bacteria, Nitrification, Nitrospira and Biofilm.

The various areas that Rudolf Amann examines in his Bacteria study include Biochemistry, Activated sludge and Oligomer restriction. Rudolf Amann combines subjects such as Environmental chemistry, Archaea, Botany and Bacteroidetes with his study of Ecology. His Molecular biology study also includes fields such as

  • Oligonucleotide that connect with fields like In situ hybridization,
  • In situ, which have a strong connection to Escherichia coli.

His most cited work include:

  • Phylogenetic identification and in situ detection of individual microbial cells without cultivation. (7632 citations)
  • Combination of 16S rRNA-targeted oligonucleotide probes with flow cytometry for analyzing mixed microbial populations. (3483 citations)
  • A marine microbial consortium apparently mediating anaerobic oxidation of methane (2133 citations)

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

Rudolf Amann mainly focuses on Bacteria, Ecology, Ribosomal RNA, Microbiology and 16S ribosomal RNA. His Bacteria research incorporates themes from Biochemistry, Activated sludge and Botany. His Ecology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Environmental chemistry, Archaea, Bacterioplankton and Microbial population biology.

His studies deal with areas such as Molecular biology, Computational biology, Oligonucleotide and 23S ribosomal RNA as well as Ribosomal RNA. His Microbiology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Proteobacteria, Oligomer restriction and Biofilm. His studies examine the connections between 16S ribosomal RNA and genetics, as well as such issues in Phylogenetics, with regards to Evolutionary biology and Sequence analysis.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Bacteria (29.42%)
  • Ecology (23.03%)
  • Ribosomal RNA (22.17%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Ecology (23.03%)
  • Bacteroidetes (6.82%)
  • Bacteria (29.42%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Ecology, Bacteroidetes, Bacteria, Environmental chemistry and Algal bloom. His research in Ecology intersects with topics in Photic zone, Archaea and Microbial population biology. His Bacteroidetes research also works with subjects such as

  • Polysaccharide, which have a strong connection to Heterotroph, Organic matter and Marine bacteriophage,
  • Gammaproteobacteria, which have a strong connection to Actinobacteria, Alphaproteobacteria and Heterotrophic Processes,
  • Taxon that connect with fields like Rhodothermaeota, Phylogenetic tree, Nomenclature, Taxonomy and Evolutionary biology.

His research is interdisciplinary, bridging the disciplines of Ribosomal RNA and Bacteria. His Environmental chemistry research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Seawater, Carbon cycle, Hydrothermal vent and Anoxygenic photosynthesis. His Algal bloom study also includes

  • Bloom most often made with reference to Bacterioplankton,
  • Botany that connect with fields like 16S ribosomal RNA and Spring bloom.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Past and future species definitions for Bacteria and Archaea. (261 citations)
  • Uncultivated microbes in need of their own taxonomy. (191 citations)
  • Recurring patterns in bacterioplankton dynamics during coastal spring algae blooms (178 citations)

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

  • Bacteria
  • Ecology
  • Gene

His primary areas of study are Ecology, Bacteroidetes, Botany, Bacteria and Planctomycetes. His Ecology study combines topics in areas such as Environmental chemistry, Sediment, Bacterioplankton and Microbial population biology. Rudolf Amann usually deals with Bacteroidetes and limits it to topics linked to Polysaccharide and Microbiology.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Ribosomal RNA, Gene, Rarefaction and Saturation. His study looks at the relationship between Microorganism and topics such as Proteobacteria, which overlap with Microbial ecology. Archaea is closely connected to 16S ribosomal RNA in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Diatom.
