Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • DNA

His primary areas of investigation include Biochemistry, Arabidopsis, Gene, Arabidopsis thaliana and Mutant. The Trehalose, Signal transduction, Sugar and Transcription factor research Sjef Smeekens does as part of his general Biochemistry study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as Hexokinase, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science. The Transcription Factor Gene and Leucine zipper research Sjef Smeekens does as part of his general Transcription factor study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as Phosphatidylinositol 3-Kinases, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science.

His study in Arabidopsis is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Gene expression and Sucrose. The subject of his Gene research is within the realm of Genetics. His Mutant study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Meristem and Metabolic pathway.

His most cited work include:

  • SUGAR-INDUCED SIGNAL TRANSDUCTION IN PLANTS (553 citations)
  • Towards functional characterisation of the members of the R2R3‐MYB gene family from Arabidopsis thaliana (477 citations)
  • Improved Performance of Transgenic Fructan-Accumulating Tobacco under Drought Stress. (462 citations)

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

Sjef Smeekens mostly deals with Biochemistry, Arabidopsis, Gene, Arabidopsis thaliana and Fructan. His study in Sucrose, Trehalose, Chloroplast, Signal transduction and Fructose is carried out as part of his Biochemistry studies. His work deals with themes such as Sugar, Regulation of gene expression and Transcription factor, which intersect with Arabidopsis.

His study looks at the intersection of Gene and topics like Molecular biology with Nucleic acid sequence and Complementary DNA. Sjef Smeekens usually deals with Arabidopsis thaliana and limits it to topics linked to Germination and Seedling. Sjef Smeekens combines subjects such as Botany, Inulin, Carbohydrate, Solanaceae and Genetically modified crops with his study of Fructan.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Biochemistry (52.82%)
  • Arabidopsis (31.69%)
  • Gene (28.17%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2008-2021)?

  • Biochemistry (52.82%)
  • Arabidopsis (31.69%)
  • Transcription factor (15.49%)

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

Sjef Smeekens spends much of his time researching Biochemistry, Arabidopsis, Transcription factor, Arabidopsis thaliana and Trehalose. Signal transduction, Sucrose, Metabolite, Translation and Cell signaling are among the areas of Biochemistry where the researcher is concentrating his efforts. His Arabidopsis study necessitates a more in-depth grasp of Mutant.

Transcription factor is a subfield of Gene that Sjef Smeekens explores. The various areas that Sjef Smeekens examines in his Arabidopsis thaliana study include Quantitative trait locus, Seed dormancy, Dormancy and Botany. His Trehalose research integrates issues from Protein kinase A, Chromatography, Mass spectrometry, Sorbitol and Sugar.

Between 2008 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Sugar signals and molecular networks controlling plant growth. (411 citations)
  • Sugar signals and the control of plant growth and development (293 citations)
  • Sucrose: metabolite and signaling molecule. (205 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • DNA

Sjef Smeekens mainly investigates Transcription factor, Biochemistry, Arabidopsis, Signal transduction and Sucrose. The concepts of his Transcription factor study are interwoven with issues in Primordium, Regulation of gene expression and Botany. His study in Arabidopsis is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Arabidopsis thaliana, Seed dormancy and Meristem.

His Signal transduction research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Trehalose and Protein kinase A. Sjef Smeekens interconnects Metabolite and Cell signaling in the investigation of issues within Sucrose. His Cell signaling research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Fructose, Transcription Factor Gene and Sugar.
