Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Genome
  • DNA

His primary scientific interests are in Genetics, Genome, Gene, Transposable element and Triticeae. His Genetics research includes themes of Powdery mildew and Hordeum vulgare. Positional cloning is closely connected to Botany in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Gene.

His studies deal with areas such as Computational biology and Sequence analysis as well as Transposable element. The study incorporates disciplines such as Gene density and Brachypodium in addition to Triticeae. Thomas Wicker has included themes like Evolutionary biology, Domestication and Reference genome in his Genomics study.

His most cited work include:

  • The Sorghum bicolor genome and the diversification of grasses (2200 citations)
  • A unified classification system for eukaryotic transposable elements (1725 citations)
  • Genome sequencing and analysis of the model grass Brachypodium distachyon (1433 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Genetics, Genome, Gene, Transposable element and Triticeae. His Genetics research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Powdery mildew and Hordeum vulgare. His research integrates issues of Evolutionary biology and Computational biology in his study of Genome.

His Gene research focuses on Botany and how it connects with Ascomycota. His Transposable element study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Identification, Promoter and genomic DNA, DNA. Thomas Wicker focuses mostly in the field of Triticeae, narrowing it down to topics relating to Expressed sequence tag and, in certain cases, Brachypodium distachyon.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (68.31%)
  • Genome (53.52%)
  • Gene (50.70%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Genome (53.52%)
  • Gene (50.70%)
  • Genetics (68.31%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Genome, Gene, Genetics, Sequence assembly and Powdery mildew. His study in Genome is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Evolutionary biology and Domestication. His Gene research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Gene pool, Annotation and Identification.

His research ties Effector and Genetics together. His Sequence assembly study also includes

  • Computational biology, Sequence, Chromosome and Hordeum vulgare most often made with reference to Triticeae,
  • Secale which is related to area like Triticale, Retrotransposon and Genetic isolate. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Powdery mildew, Receptor, Immune system, Pathogen and Quantitative trait locus is strongly linked to Mildew.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • TRITEX: chromosome-scale sequence assembly of Triticeae genomes with open-source tools (47 citations)
  • Multiple wheat genomes reveal global variation in modern breeding. (41 citations)
  • The AvrPm3-Pm3 effector-NLR interactions control both race-specific resistance and host-specificity of cereal mildews on wheat. (30 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Genome
  • DNA

Thomas Wicker mainly investigates Genome, Evolutionary biology, Gene, Genetics and Genomics. Thomas Wicker has researched Genome in several fields, including Plant disease resistance and Locus. Thomas Wicker combines subjects such as Gene duplication, Genome evolution, Fungal pathogen and Center of origin with his study of Evolutionary biology.

His research is interdisciplinary, bridging the disciplines of Receptor and Gene. Thomas Wicker frequently studies issues relating to Effector and Genetics. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Sequence, Chromosome, Computational biology and Sequence assembly.
