Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Ecology
  • Bacteria

Shinichi Sunagawa mostly deals with Metagenomics, Microbiome, Ecology, Plankton and Ecosystem. His research investigates the connection between Metagenomics and topics such as Genome that intersect with issues in Computational biology. His Microbiome study combines topics in areas such as Gut flora and Obesity.

His study on Nutrient cycle and Competition is often connected to Soil pH and Soil classification as part of broader study in Ecology. His Plankton research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Abundance, Biodiversity and Community structure. His Ecosystem research includes elements of Mesopelagic zone and Marine biology.

His most cited work include:

  • Richness of human gut microbiome correlates with metabolic markers (2229 citations)
  • Structure and function of the global ocean microbiome (1143 citations)
  • eggNOG 4.5: a hierarchical orthology framework with improved functional annotations for eukaryotic, prokaryotic and viral sequences (1142 citations)

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

His main research concerns Metagenomics, Ecology, Microbiome, Evolutionary biology and Genome. His Metagenomics research is included under the broader classification of Genetics. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Symbiosis and Symbiodinium.

His study in Microbiome is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Gut flora and Microbiology. His Genome research includes themes of Trophic level and Clade. The concepts of his Computational biology study are interwoven with issues in Genetic marker and Ribosomal RNA.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Metagenomics (37.93%)
  • Ecology (28.28%)
  • Microbiome (27.59%)

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

  • Microbiome (27.59%)
  • Metagenomics (37.93%)
  • Plankton (10.34%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Microbiome, Metagenomics, Plankton, Evolutionary biology and Ecosystem. The Microbiome study which covers Genome that intersects with DNA sequencing. His Metagenomics research integrates issues from Machine learning and Artificial intelligence.

His work deals with themes such as Drug discovery, Polyketide and Phylogenetic tree, which intersect with Evolutionary biology. His research in Ecosystem intersects with topics in Biogeochemical cycle, Climate change and Mesopelagic zone. His Giant Virus study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Ecology and Phylogenetics.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Tara Oceans: towards global ocean ecosystems biology. (26 citations)
  • Genomic evidence for global ocean plankton biogeography shaped by large-scale current systems (16 citations)
  • A multiproducer microbiome generates chemical diversity in the marine sponge Mycale hentscheli. (14 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Bacteria
  • Ecology

His primary scientific interests are in Biogeography, Plankton, Ecosystem, Phylogenetic tree and Evolutionary biology. His studies in Biogeography integrate themes in fields like Community structure, Ocean current, Seascape and Metagenomics. Shinichi Sunagawa interconnects Ecology, Marine ecosystem, Climate change, Environmental resource management and Environmental data in the investigation of issues within Plankton.

His Phylogenetic tree research incorporates themes from Phylum and Species diversity. His Evolutionary biology study incorporates themes from Microbiome, Sponge, Symbiosis, Bacteria and Host. His Phylogenetics research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Ecology and Giant Virus.
