Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Bacteria
  • DNA

Stanley Falkow spends much of his time researching Microbiology, Gene, Molecular biology, Bacteria and Salmonella. His Microbiology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Yersinia, Yersinia pseudotuberculosis, Virulence, Host and Enterobacteriaceae. His work in Gene covers topics such as Virology which are related to areas like Tuberculosis and Mycobacterium tuberculosis.

The Molecular biology study combines topics in areas such as Plasmid, Escherichia coli, Mutant and Green fluorescent protein. His Salmonella research includes elements of Macrophage, Intracellular and Vacuole. His study looks at the relationship between Aequorea victoria and fields such as Flow cytometry, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems.

His most cited work include:

  • Construction and characterization of new cloning vehicles. II. A multipurpose cloning system. (4062 citations)
  • FACS-optimized mutants of the green fluorescent protein (GFP) (2890 citations)
  • FACS-optimized mutants of the green fluorescent protein (GFP) (2890 citations)

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

Stanley Falkow focuses on Microbiology, Gene, Escherichia coli, Genetics and Virulence. His studies in Microbiology integrate themes in fields like Plasmid, Virology, Salmonella, Bacteria and Enterobacteriaceae. His studies deal with areas such as Cell culture and Yersinia pseudotuberculosis as well as Enterobacteriaceae.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including DNA, Molecular biology and Recombinant DNA. His Molecular biology study incorporates themes from Regulation of gene expression, Peptide sequence, Biochemistry and Green fluorescent protein. His work is dedicated to discovering how Virulence, Pathogen are connected with Host and other disciplines.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Microbiology (62.32%)
  • Gene (27.20%)
  • Escherichia coli (23.51%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 1999-2016)?

  • Microbiology (62.32%)
  • Gene (27.20%)
  • Virulence (20.68%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Microbiology, Gene, Virulence, Genetics and Helicobacter pylori. The concepts of his Microbiology study are interwoven with issues in Virology, Mutant and Salmonella, Salmonella enterica, Pathogenicity island. He combines subjects such as Molecular biology and Campylobacter jejuni with his study of Gene.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Laser capture microdissection and Effector in addition to Molecular biology. His research in Virulence intersects with topics in Proinflammatory cytokine, Wild type, Pathogen and Colonization. He has researched Helicobacter pylori in several fields, including CagA and Pathogenesis.

Between 1999 and 2016, his most popular works were:

  • Disruption of the Epithelial Apical-Junctional Complex by Helicobacter pylori CagA (629 citations)
  • What are the consequences of the disappearing human microbiota (572 citations)
  • A whole-genome microarray reveals genetic diversity among Helicobacter pylori strains (539 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Bacteria
  • DNA

His primary areas of investigation include Microbiology, Gene, Helicobacter pylori, Pathogenicity island and Genetics. His Microbiology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Bacteria, Virology, Mutant and Virulence. His research investigates the connection between Virulence and topics such as Phenotype that intersect with problems in Stringent response, Colonization and Whole genome sequencing.

His studies examine the connections between Helicobacter pylori and genetics, as well as such issues in CagA, with regards to Flagellin. His work carried out in the field of Pathogenicity island brings together such families of science as Secretion, Regulation of gene expression and Salmonella enterica. He works mostly in the field of Regulation of gene expression, limiting it down to topics relating to Molecular biology and, in certain cases, Actin cytoskeleton, as a part of the same area of interest.
