1989 - Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS)
His main research concerns Molecular biology, Biochemistry, Escherichia coli, RNase P and Polynucleotide phosphorylase. His work carried out in the field of Molecular biology brings together such families of science as Transcription, Gene, DNA and Exonuclease. His Gene cluster, Promoter, Regulation of gene expression and Plasmid study in the realm of Gene interacts with subjects such as P-bodies.
His work on 23S ribosomal RNA, Mutant and Heat shock protein as part of general Biochemistry study is frequently connected to RNA methylation, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them. The Escherichia coli study which covers Thermolabile that intersects with RRNA processing, RNase R and Viability assay. Sidney R. Kushner focuses mostly in the field of RNase P, narrowing it down to topics relating to Ribonuclease and, in certain cases, RyhB and RNA Stability.
Molecular biology, Biochemistry, Escherichia coli, RNase P and Genetics are his primary areas of study. The various areas that Sidney R. Kushner examines in his Molecular biology study include Plasmid, Mutant, DNA, Messenger RNA and Gene. His research in the fields of Polyadenylation, Polymerase, RNase H and Thioredoxin overlaps with other disciplines such as DNA polymerase I.
His study in Escherichia coli is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Genetic recombination, Molecular cloning and Transcription. In the field of RNase P, his study on RNase MRP and RNase PH overlaps with subjects such as Polynucleotide phosphorylase. His Nucleic acid sequence, Peptide sequence, Riboswitch and 18S ribosomal RNA study in the realm of Genetics connects with subjects such as Ultraviolet light.
Sidney R. Kushner mainly focuses on Biochemistry, Polyadenylation, RNA, RNase P and Transfer RNA. His work on Polynucleotide adenylyltransferase as part of general Polyadenylation research is frequently linked to Polynucleotide phosphorylase, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science. His research in RNA intersects with topics in Polymerase, Operon, Escherichia coli, Bacteria and Molecular biology.
He combines Molecular biology and Polyadenylation Pathway in his studies. Sidney R. Kushner combines subjects such as Transcription and RNA Stability with his study of RNase P. His work on TRNA processing as part of general Transfer RNA research is often related to DNA polymerase I, thus linking different fields of science.
Sidney R. Kushner mostly deals with RNA, Polyadenylation, Polynucleotide phosphorylase, Bacteria and Escherichia coli. His RNA study deals with the bigger picture of Genetics. His work focuses on many connections between Polyadenylation and other disciplines, such as Transfer RNA, that overlap with his field of interest in Polynucleotide adenylyltransferase and RNase P.
In Bacteria, Sidney R. Kushner works on issues like Reverse transcriptase, which are connected to Molecular biology. Sidney R. Kushner integrates many fields in his works, including Molecular biology and P-bodies. His Escherichia coli study incorporates themes from Nuclease protection assay, Polymerase and Primer extension.
