Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Ecology
  • Genetics

His main research concerns Evolutionary biology, Genetics, Phylogenetics, Coalescent theory and Phylogenetic tree. The various areas that Scott V. Edwards examines in his Evolutionary biology study include Zoology, Genome, Synteny, Genomics and Phylogeography. His research in Phylogenetics intersects with topics in Gene pool, Warbler, Adaptive evolution and Introgression.

His Coalescent theory research includes themes of Ecology, Tree, Statistics, Phylogenomics and Gene flow. He studied Phylogenetic tree and Mitochondrial DNA that intersect with Restriction map. His studies in Molecular evolution integrate themes in fields like Nucleic acid sequence and Polymerase chain reaction, Primer.

His most cited work include:

  • DYNAMICS OF MITOCHONDRIAL DNA EVOLUTION IN ANIMALS: AMPLIFICATION AND SEQUENCING WITH CONSERVED PRIMERS (4101 citations)
  • Whole-genome analyses resolve early branches in the tree of life of modern birds (1174 citations)
  • IS A NEW AND GENERAL THEORY OF MOLECULAR SYSTEMATICS EMERGING (833 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Evolutionary biology, Genetics, Phylogenetic tree, Phylogenetics and Genome. His Evolutionary biology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Ecology, Genetic diversity, Comparative genomics, Coalescent theory and DNA sequencing. His Coalescent theory research incorporates elements of Tree, Gene flow, Tree rearrangement and Introgression.

His Phylogenetic tree study frequently involves adjacent topics like Mitochondrial DNA. His study ties his expertise on Zoology together with the subject of Phylogenetics. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Amniote and Lineage.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Evolutionary biology (49.81%)
  • Genetics (37.45%)
  • Phylogenetic tree (27.03%)

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

  • Evolutionary biology (49.81%)
  • Genome (22.78%)
  • Coalescent theory (19.31%)

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

Scott V. Edwards mostly deals with Evolutionary biology, Genome, Coalescent theory, Phylogenetic tree and Phylogenetics. His Evolutionary biology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Effective population size, Comparative genomics, Molecular evolution, Demographic history and Convergent evolution. His research integrates issues of Dichromatism, Vertebrate, Genotype-phenotype distinction and Tree of life in his study of Genome.

His Coalescent theory research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Phylogenomics, Inference and Introgression. His Phylogenetic tree research integrates issues from Genome-wide association study and Genetic variation. Scott V. Edwards has included themes like Computational biology, Species diversity and Homology in his Phylogenetics study.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Convergent regulatory evolution and loss of flight in paleognathous birds (87 citations)
  • Embracing heterogeneity: coalescing the Tree of Life and the future of phylogenomics. (56 citations)
  • Embracing heterogeneity: coalescing the Tree of Life and the future of phylogenomics. (56 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Ecology
  • Genome

Scott V. Edwards spends much of his time researching Evolutionary biology, Natural history, Data science, Phylogenetic tree and Tree of life. The concepts of his Evolutionary biology study are interwoven with issues in W chromosome, Pseudoautosomal region and Genome, Molecular evolution, Phylogenetics. Scott V. Edwards combines subjects such as Natural selection and Predictability with his study of Data science.

His study in Phylogenomics and Coalescent theory is carried out as part of his Phylogenetic tree studies. The study incorporates disciplines such as Comparative genomics and Genomics in addition to Tree of life. Scott V. Edwards focuses mostly in the field of Genomics, narrowing it down to topics relating to Major histocompatibility complex and, in certain cases, DNA sequencing.
