Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Bacteria
  • DNA

His primary scientific interests are in Genetics, Genome, Genomics, Antibiotic resistance and Whole genome sequencing. His work in Molecular epidemiology, Phylogenetic tree, Phylogenetics, Virulence and Lineage are all subfields of Genetics research. The Molecular epidemiology study combines topics in areas such as Transmission, Outbreak, Virology and Antigenic variation.

The various areas that Simon R. Harris examines in his Phylogenetics study include Evolutionary biology and Eukaryote. He has included themes like Genome-wide association study, Computational biology and DNA sequencing in his Genome study. His Antibiotic resistance research incorporates themes from Streptococcus pneumoniae and Pneumococcal infections.

His most cited work include:

  • A tale of three next generation sequencing platforms: comparison of Ion Torrent, Pacific Biosciences and Illumina MiSeq sequencers. (1475 citations)
  • Evolution of MRSA During Hospital Transmission and Intercontinental Spread (905 citations)
  • Rapid phylogenetic analysis of large samples of recombinant bacterial whole genome sequences using Gubbins. (874 citations)

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

Genetics, Genome, Microbiology, Whole genome sequencing and Antibiotic resistance are his primary areas of study. His Genetics study focuses mostly on Gene, Phylogenetics, Phylogenetic tree, Virulence and Single-nucleotide polymorphism. His Genome research integrates issues from Computational biology and DNA sequencing.

His studies deal with areas such as Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, Multilocus sequence typing, Streptococcus zooepidemicus and Virology as well as Microbiology. He combines subjects such as Genotype, Multiple drug resistance and Neisseria gonorrhoeae with his study of Antibiotic resistance. His Outbreak research focuses on Transmission and how it relates to Epidemiology and Molecular epidemiology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (28.61%)
  • Genome (25.50%)
  • Microbiology (13.88%)

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

  • Genome (25.50%)
  • Neisseria gonorrhoeae (7.37%)
  • Antibiotic resistance (12.46%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Genome, Neisseria gonorrhoeae, Antibiotic resistance, Genetics and Computational biology. A large part of his Genome studies is devoted to Reference genome. The study incorporates disciplines such as Whole genome sequencing, Viral phylodynamics, Genotype, Random forest and Drug resistance in addition to Antibiotic resistance.

His study in Drug resistance is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Staphylococcal infections, Clone, Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus and Outbreak. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Range and Melioidosis. His studies in Computational biology integrate themes in fields like Small intestine, Selection, Genomics, DNA sequencing and Metagenomics.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Epidemic of carbapenem-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae in Europe is driven by nosocomial spread (153 citations)
  • Fast and flexible bacterial genomic epidemiology with PopPUNK. (86 citations)
  • Evolution and Global Transmission of a Multidrug-Resistant, Community-Associated Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus Lineage from the Indian Subcontinent (61 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Bacteria
  • DNA

Simon R. Harris spends much of his time researching Genome, Genetics, Antibiotic resistance, Neisseria gonorrhoeae and Phylogenetic tree.
