His primary areas of study are Genetics, Homologous recombination, Meiosis, Spo11 and Genetic recombination. Scott Keeney is interested in Chromatin, which is a field of Genetics. Scott Keeney regularly ties together related areas like Saccharomyces cerevisiae in his Homologous recombination studies.
He has included themes like Homologous chromosome, Chromosome segregation and DMC1 in his Meiosis study. His DMC1 research focuses on subjects like Synapsis, which are linked to Meiotic Prophase I. His research in Spo11 intersects with topics in Molecular biology, Meiotic recombination checkpoint, SPO11 Gene and Cell biology.
The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Meiosis, Homologous recombination, Genetics, Cell biology and Spo11. His studies deal with areas such as Homologous chromosome, Recombination and Chromosome segregation as well as Meiosis. His work carried out in the field of Homologous recombination brings together such families of science as Genetic recombination, Saccharomyces cerevisiae and DNA repair.
The study incorporates disciplines such as Non-homologous end joining and Replication protein A in addition to Genetic recombination. His study in the fields of Kinase activity under the domain of Cell biology overlaps with other disciplines such as PRDM9. His Spo11 research integrates issues from Molecular biology, Conserved sequence and Meiotic DNA double-strand break formation.
Scott Keeney mainly focuses on Cell biology, Meiosis, Homologous recombination, Homologous chromosome and DNA. Scott Keeney combines subjects such as Chromosome segregation, Synapsis, Mutation, Meiotic Prophase I and Centromere with his study of Cell biology. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Pseudoautosomal region, Chromosome, Recombination, Chromatin and Telomere.
When carried out as part of a general Recombination research project, his work on Genetic recombination is frequently linked to work in PRDM9, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study. His Homologous recombination research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Fungal genetics, Cleavage, Mutant and Spo11. DNA is a subfield of Genetics that he tackles.
Cell biology, Meiosis, Homologous recombination, DNA and Spo11 are his primary areas of study. His study in Cell biology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Chromosomal crossover, Chromosome segregation, Cyclin-dependent kinase 1, Cyclin B1 and Pseudoautosomal region. The Meiosis study combines topics in areas such as Chromosome, Recombination and Homologous chromosome.
His Homologous recombination study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Fungal genetics and DNA repair. The various areas that Scott Keeney examines in his DNA study include Biophysics and Saccharomyces cerevisiae. His studies in Saccharomyces cerevisiae integrate themes in fields like Coiled coil, In vitro, Cleavage, Protein subunit and Nucleoprotein.
