Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Chromosome

His primary scientific interests are in Genetics, Cell biology, Gene, Sister chromatids and Cell cycle. His work in Control of chromosome duplication, Origin recognition complex, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Gene conversion and Meiosis is related to Genetics. In his research, Computational biology is intimately related to RAD52 Gene, which falls under the overarching field of Gene conversion.

He is interested in Mitosis, which is a field of Cell biology. Terry L. Orr-Weaver focuses mostly in the field of Sister chromatids, narrowing it down to matters related to Cohesin and, in some cases, Anaphase. The various areas that Terry L. Orr-Weaver examines in his Cell cycle study include Transcription factor and DNA replication.

His most cited work include:

  • Yeast transformation: a model system for the study of recombination (1023 citations)
  • Identification of Functional Elements and Regulatory Circuits by Drosophila modENCODE (991 citations)
  • Endoreplication cell cycles: more for less. (676 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Genetics, Cell biology, Sister chromatids, DNA replication and Gene. His study in Genetics concentrates on Establishment of sister chromatid cohesion, Meiosis, Centromere, Chromosome segregation and Origin recognition complex. His research in Establishment of sister chromatid cohesion intersects with topics in Meiosis II, Spindle apparatus and Kinetochore.

His Cell biology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Cell cycle and Drosophila melanogaster. The Cell cycle study combines topics in areas such as Ploidy, Mitosis, Drosophila Protein and Cell fate determination. His work in Sister chromatids addresses issues such as Anaphase, which are connected to fields such as Metaphase.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (70.68%)
  • Cell biology (40.60%)
  • Sister chromatids (19.55%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2011-2020)?

  • Cell biology (40.60%)
  • Genetics (70.68%)
  • Embryo (7.52%)

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

Terry L. Orr-Weaver spends much of his time researching Cell biology, Genetics, Embryo, DNA replication and Origin recognition complex. His study connects Polyadenylation and Cell biology. All of his Genetics and Genome, Gene, DNA re-replication, Aurora B kinase and Polyploid investigations are sub-components of the entire Genetics study.

His Embryo research also works with subjects such as

  • Proteome and related Thioredoxin, Totipotent and Drosophila Protein,
  • Anaphase-promoting complex that intertwine with fields like Immunoprecipitation, Activator, Cdc20 Proteins and Polo kinase. As a member of one scientific family, Terry L. Orr-Weaver mostly works in the field of DNA replication, focusing on DNA repair and, on occasion, Origin of replication and G2-M DNA damage checkpoint. His Origin recognition complex study incorporates themes from General transcription factor, Pre-replication complex, Control of chromosome duplication, Licensing factor and E-box.

Between 2011 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • When bigger is better: the role of polyploidy in organogenesis. (151 citations)
  • Polyploidization of glia in neural development links tissue growth to blood–brain barrier integrity (96 citations)
  • Widespread Changes in the Posttranscriptional Landscape at the Drosophila Oocyte-to-Embryo Transition (87 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Chromosome

Terry L. Orr-Weaver mostly deals with Genetics, Cell biology, Embryo, Anaphase-promoting complex and DNA replication. Polyploid, Eukaryotic DNA replication, Replication factor C, DNA replication factor CDT1 and Control of chromosome duplication are the core of his Genetics study. His studies in Cell biology integrate themes in fields like Molecular biology, Ploidy and Organogenesis.

His Ploidy research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Cell cycle, Cell type and Drosophila melanogaster. Within one scientific family, Terry L. Orr-Weaver focuses on topics pertaining to Proteome under Embryo, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Drosophila Protein, Transcription and Protein turnover. His DNA replication research integrates issues from Double Strand Break Repair, Homologous recombination and DNA repair.
