Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • Tuberculosis

Sebastien Gagneux mainly investigates Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Tuberculosis, Genetics, Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex and Drug resistance. His research integrates issues of Lineage, Virology, Phylogenetics, Lineage and Immunology in his study of Mycobacterium tuberculosis. His Tuberculosis research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Evolutionary biology, Antibiotic resistance and Disease.

In Genetics, Sebastien Gagneux works on issues like Population genetics, which are connected to Genetic diversity, Human genetics, Allopatric speciation, Sympatric speciation and Human pathogen. His Drug resistance research integrates issues from Ethionamide, Internal medicine, Antibiotics and Prothionamide. The study incorporates disciplines such as Epitope, Sequence analysis and DNA sequencing in addition to Genome.

His most cited work include:

  • Variable host-pathogen compatibility in Mycobacterium tuberculosis. (781 citations)
  • Out-of-Africa migration and Neolithic coexpansion of Mycobacterium tuberculosis with modern humans (648 citations)
  • Out-of-Africa migration and Neolithic coexpansion of Mycobacterium tuberculosis with modern humans (648 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Tuberculosis, Genetics, Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex and Virology. His Mycobacterium tuberculosis study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Lineage, Genome, Antibiotic resistance, Genotype and Drug resistance. His Drug resistance study incorporates themes from Antibiotics and Rifampicin.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Evolutionary biology, Internal medicine, Disease and Immunology in addition to Tuberculosis. His study looks at the relationship between Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex and fields such as Virulence, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems. His research in Virology intersects with topics in rpoB and Molecular epidemiology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Mycobacterium tuberculosis (118.18%)
  • Tuberculosis (107.86%)
  • Genetics (62.90%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2019-2021)?

  • Mycobacterium tuberculosis (118.18%)
  • Tuberculosis (107.86%)
  • Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex (49.14%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Tuberculosis, Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex, Genetics and Evolutionary biology. His Mycobacterium tuberculosis research integrates issues from Genetic variation, Minimum inhibitory concentration, Antibiotic resistance, Computational biology and Drug resistance. His Drug resistance research includes themes of Rifampicin and Virology.

His Tuberculosis research incorporates themes from Internal medicine, Disease and Immune system, Immunology. His Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Genome, Gene, Genetic diversity and Single-nucleotide polymorphism. The various areas that Sebastien Gagneux examines in his Evolutionary biology study include Phylogeography, Lineage, Population genetics and Coalescent theory.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • A sister lineage of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex discovered in the African Great Lakes region (45 citations)
  • A sister lineage of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex discovered in the African Great Lakes region (45 citations)
  • Mycobacterium tuberculosis associated with severe tuberculosis evades cytosolic surveillance systems and modulates IL-1β production. (30 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • Genome

His primary scientific interests are in Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex, Tuberculosis, Evolutionary biology and Lineage. Sebastien Gagneux combines subjects such as SNP, Single-nucleotide polymorphism, Genetics and Genetic variation with his study of Mycobacterium tuberculosis. His Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex research focuses on Genetic diversity and how it connects with Genomics, Computational biology and Genetic association.

His Tuberculosis research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Inflammasome, Immunology, Immune system, Cytokine and Secretion. While the research belongs to areas of Evolutionary biology, he spends his time largely on the problem of Phylogeography, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Mycobacterium africanum, Phylogenomics, Mycobacterium caprae, Mycobacterium bovis and Molecular clock. The Lineage study combines topics in areas such as Adaptation, Genome and Clade.
