Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Virus

His primary areas of investigation include Ehrlichia ruminantium, Virology, Heartwater Disease, Tick and Ixodidae. His Ehrlichia ruminantium research integrates issues from Bacterial vaccine, Amblyomma, Amblyomma cajennense and Polymerase chain reaction. His Amblyomma research focuses on subjects like Amblyomma variegatum, which are linked to Amblyomma maculatum and DNA sequencing.

Suman M. Mahan works in the field of Virology, namely Ehrlichia. His study in Heartwater Disease is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Hybridization probe, Biotechnology, Agricultural science, Livestock and Inactivated vaccine. His work on Amblyomma americanum and Tick-borne disease as part of general Tick study is frequently connected to Theileria parva, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them.

His most cited work include:

  • Molecular Characterization of a 28 kDa Surface Antigen Gene Family of the Tribe Ehrlichiae (100 citations)
  • Use of a specific immunogenic region on the Cowdria ruminantium MAP1 protein in a serological assay. (85 citations)
  • A cloned DNA probe identifies Cowdria ruminantium in Amblyomma variegatum ticks. (74 citations)

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

Virology, Ehrlichia ruminantium, Veterinary medicine, Amblyomma and Tick are his primary areas of study. His Virology study combines topics in areas such as Polymerase chain reaction, Antibody and Antigen. His Ehrlichia ruminantium study focuses on Heartwater Disease in particular.

His research integrates issues of Livestock, Acaricide, Prevalence, Seroprevalence and Animal science in his study of Veterinary medicine. His work in Amblyomma covers topics such as Amblyomma variegatum which are related to areas like Caribbean island and Spotted fever. His work in the fields of Tick-borne disease overlaps with other areas such as Theileria parva.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Virology (60.38%)
  • Ehrlichia ruminantium (36.79%)
  • Veterinary medicine (23.58%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2002-2019)?

  • Virology (60.38%)
  • Ehrlichia ruminantium (36.79%)
  • Ehrlichia (22.64%)

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

His primary areas of study are Virology, Ehrlichia ruminantium, Ehrlichia, Veterinary medicine and Rickettsiales. His Virology study incorporates themes from Sequence homology, Antigen and Polymerase chain reaction. Suman M. Mahan interconnects Amblyomma americanum and Tick in the investigation of issues within Polymerase chain reaction.

His Ehrlichia ruminantium study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Serology, Gene, DNA vaccination and Anaplasma. His Ehrlichia study deals with Antibody intersecting with Amblyomma and Enzyme. His work on Tick-borne disease and Amblyomma variegatum as part of general Veterinary medicine research is frequently linked to Disease control, bridging the gap between disciplines.

Between 2002 and 2019, his most popular works were:

  • Infection of a goat with a tick-transmitted Ehrlichia from Georgia, U.S.A., that is closely related to Ehrlichia ruminantium. (61 citations)
  • Ticks and tick-borne disease in Guatemalan cattle and horses. (56 citations)
  • Rickettsia africae in Amblyomma variegatum and Domestic Ruminants on Eight Caribbean Islands (32 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Virus

Suman M. Mahan mainly investigates Rickettsiales, Ehrlichia ruminantium, Amblyomma variegatum, Caribbean island and Ixodidae. His Rickettsiales research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Genome, Locus and Microbiology. He is exploring Ehrlichia ruminantium as part of his Ehrlichia and Veterinary medicine and Ehrlichia ruminantium studies.

Suman M. Mahan has included themes like African tick bite fever, Rickettsia africae, Spotted fever and Ehrlichiaceae in his Amblyomma variegatum study. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Rickettsiaceae and Serology. Virology and Tick are the two main areas of interest in his Ixodidae studies.
