2022 - Research.com Genetics and Molecular Biology in Belgium Leader Award
Toomas Kivisild mainly focuses on Genetics, Evolutionary biology, Haplogroup, Haplotype and Mitochondrial DNA. His research brings together the fields of Population genetics and Genetics. His Population genetics research includes themes of Human migration and Ethnology.
His Evolutionary biology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Most recent common ancestor, Biological dispersal, Denisovan and Reference genome. His work carried out in the field of Haplogroup brings together such families of science as Haplogroup M and Haplogroup D-M15, Haplogroup L3, Phylogenetic tree, Phylogeography. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Gene pool, Y chromosome and Genetic variation.
Toomas Kivisild spends much of his time researching Genetics, Evolutionary biology, Haplogroup, Haplotype and Mitochondrial DNA. His Genetics study combines topics in areas such as Population genetics and Genetic diversity. The concepts of his Evolutionary biology study are interwoven with issues in Genome, Ancient DNA, Phylogenetics, Gene pool and Genetic variation.
His Haplogroup research includes elements of Y chromosome, Phylogeography, Haplogroup L3, Biological dispersal and Human mitochondrial DNA haplogroup. Toomas Kivisild has researched Haplotype in several fields, including Genetic structure and Coalescent theory. His Mitochondrial DNA research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Founder effect and Phylogenetic tree.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Ancient DNA, Evolutionary biology, Ethnology, Bronze Age and Steppe. His studies in Ancient DNA integrate themes in fields like Imputation, Genotype imputation, Computational biology and Genotype. His Evolutionary biology research incorporates themes from Plague, Phylogenetics and Genetic variation.
His study in Genetic variation is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Cline, Genomics, Coalescent theory, Phylogeography and Haplotype. His Ethnology course of study focuses on Demographic history and Colonization, Atlantic slave trade, Colonialism, Gene flow and Middle East. His research integrates issues of Population genetics, Genetic genealogy and Peninsula in his study of Bronze Age.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Ethnology, Ancient DNA, Evolutionary biology, Population genetics and Plague. While the research belongs to areas of Ethnology, he spends his time largely on the problem of Demographic history, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Estonian, Mesolithic, Genetic genealogy, Context and Human genetic variation. The various areas that Toomas Kivisild examines in his Ancient DNA study include Temporal context, Steppe, Dominance and Iron Age, Ancient history.
His Evolutionary biology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Land bridge, Lineage, Pleistocene and Haplogroup. His work deals with themes such as Bronze Age, Genetic variation and Neanderthal genome project, which intersect with Population genetics. Toomas Kivisild works mostly in the field of Plague, limiting it down to topics relating to Phylogenetics and, in certain cases, Genome, Phylogenetic tree, Microevolution and Bacterial genome size.
