What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • Genome

His primary areas of investigation include Genetics, Genome, Genomics, Human genome and Gene. His Genetics study frequently draws connections between adjacent fields such as Effects of high altitude on humans. Ruiqiang Li combines subjects such as Genetic variation, Botany and Sequence assembly with his study of Genome.

His work in Genomics addresses subjects such as Phylogenetics, which are connected to disciplines such as Evolutionary biology and Drosophila Protein. His studies deal with areas such as dbSNP, Locus, Computational biology and Reference genome as well as Human genome. His Gene research focuses on subjects like Domestication, which are linked to Drosophila melanogaster, Bombyx, Polyploid, Gossypium raimondii and Bacterial artificial chromosome.

His most cited work include:

  • A human gut microbial gene catalogue established by metagenomic sequencing (6577 citations)
  • Characterization of microRNAs in serum: a novel class of biomarkers for diagnosis of cancer and other diseases (3355 citations)
  • SOAP2: an improved ultrafast tool for short read alignment. (2900 citations)

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

Ruiqiang Li spends much of his time researching Genetics, Genome, Genomics, Gene and Computational biology. His is doing research in Human genome, Sequence assembly, Whole genome sequencing, Genetic variation and Gene expression profiling, both of which are found in Genetics. His Genome research incorporates themes from Evolutionary biology, Phylogenetics and Gene duplication.

Ruiqiang Li works mostly in the field of Evolutionary biology, limiting it down to topics relating to Domestication and, in certain cases, Domestic pig. His study looks at the intersection of Genomics and topics like Single-nucleotide polymorphism with Allele. His Computational biology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Contig and DNA sequencing.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (43.03%)
  • Genome (38.79%)
  • Genomics (20.00%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Genome (38.79%)
  • Evolutionary biology (13.33%)
  • Gene (18.18%)

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

Ruiqiang Li focuses on Genome, Evolutionary biology, Gene, Genomics and Condensed matter physics. Genome is closely attributed to Scallop in his work. Ruiqiang Li interconnects Adaptation, Domestication, Allele and Population genetics in the investigation of issues within Evolutionary biology.

His Gene study results in a more complete grasp of Genetics. Ruiqiang Li is interested in Mitochondrial DNA, which is a branch of Genetics. The Genomics study combines topics in areas such as Indigenous, Repatriation and Population structure.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Scallop genome provides insights into evolution of bilaterian karyotype and development. (189 citations)
  • Resequencing a core collection of upland cotton identifies genomic variation and loci influencing fiber quality and yield. (128 citations)
  • Scallop genome reveals molecular adaptations to semi-sessile life and neurotoxins (83 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • DNA

Ruiqiang Li mostly deals with Genome, Evolutionary biology, Genomics, Gene and Grain boundary. Ruiqiang Li mostly deals with Reference genome in his studies of Genome. His Evolutionary biology research integrates issues from Quantitative trait locus, Domestication, Scallop, Allele and Single-nucleotide polymorphism.

His Genomics study incorporates themes from Indigenous, Repatriation and Population structure. His Gene study is associated with Genetics. His study in the fields of Gene family and Mitochondrial DNA under the domain of Genetics overlaps with other disciplines such as Strigolactone, Plastid and Gastrodia elata.
