Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • Genetics

Stephen J. O'Brien mainly focuses on Genetics, Gene, Genome, Evolutionary biology and Zoology. While the research belongs to areas of Gene, Stephen J. O'Brien spends his time largely on the problem of Molecular biology, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Chromosome, Peptide sequence, Nucleic acid sequence and Cell culture. Stephen J. O'Brien combines subjects such as Computational biology and Gene mapping with his study of Genome.

His study looks at the relationship between Evolutionary biology and topics such as Phylogenetics, which overlap with Mitochondrial DNA. His work in Zoology addresses subjects such as Phylogenetic tree, which are connected to disciplines such as Sequence analysis. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Human leukocyte antigen, Immunology and Single-nucleotide polymorphism.

His most cited work include:

  • Genetic Restriction of HIV-1 Infection and Progression to AIDS by a Deletion Allele of the CKR5 Structural Gene (2304 citations)
  • Molecular phylogenetics and the origins of placental mammals (1199 citations)
  • Whole-genome analyses resolve early branches in the tree of life of modern birds (1174 citations)

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

His main research concerns Genetics, Evolutionary biology, Gene, Genome and Virology. Many of his studies on Genetics involve topics that are commonly interrelated, such as Molecular biology. His Evolutionary biology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Zoology, Phylogenetics, Genetic variation and Phylogenetic tree.

His Genome study typically links adjacent topics like Computational biology. The study of Virology is intertwined with the study of Immunology in a number of ways. The study incorporates disciplines such as Genotype, Haplotype and Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome in addition to Immunology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (34.35%)
  • Evolutionary biology (20.96%)
  • Gene (17.57%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2013-2021)?

  • Evolutionary biology (20.96%)
  • Genome (17.22%)
  • Genetics (34.35%)

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

Stephen J. O'Brien focuses on Evolutionary biology, Genome, Genetics, Gene and Internal medicine. Stephen J. O'Brien interconnects Phylogenetic tree, Subspecies, Vertebrate, Phylogenetics and Adaptation in the investigation of issues within Evolutionary biology. As part of one scientific family, Stephen J. O'Brien deals mainly with the area of Adaptation, narrowing it down to issues related to the Zoology, and often Panthera.

His Genome research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Computational biology and Sequence assembly. His studies in Genetics integrate themes in fields like Pangolin and Manis. His Internal medicine research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Gastroenterology and Oncology.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Whole-genome analyses resolve early branches in the tree of life of modern birds (1174 citations)
  • Whole-genome analyses resolve early branches in the tree of life of modern birds (1174 citations)
  • Comparative genomics reveals insights into avian genome evolution and adaptation. (638 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Internal medicine
  • DNA

Evolutionary biology, Genetics, Genome, Genomics and Adaptation are his primary areas of study. His Evolutionary biology research incorporates elements of Vertebrate, Monophyly, Pangolin, Phylogenetics and Manis. His work deals with themes such as Intraocular pressure and CATS, which intersect with Genetics.

His research integrates issues of Genetic diversity and Sequence assembly in his study of Genome. His Genomics study improves the overall literature in Gene. His Zoology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Columbea and Panthera.
