Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • Internal medicine

Uwe Völker focuses on Genetics, Genome-wide association study, Bacillus subtilis, Gene and Regulon. His Genome-wide association study research integrates issues from Internal medicine, Kidney, Genetic association and Bioinformatics. The concepts of his Internal medicine study are interwoven with issues in Endocrinology and Cardiology.

His work carried out in the field of Bacillus subtilis brings together such families of science as Biochemistry, Mutant, Heat shock, Cell biology and Sigma factor. His Mutant research includes themes of Heat shock protein and Gene expression. His research integrates issues of Wild type, Psychological repression and Microbiology in his study of Regulon.

His most cited work include:

  • Genetic variants in novel pathways influence blood pressure and cardiovascular disease risk (1543 citations)
  • A reference panel of 64,976 haplotypes for genotype imputation (1312 citations)
  • Systematic identification of trans eQTLs as putative drivers of known disease associations (1249 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Genetics, Genome-wide association study, Internal medicine, Proteome and Bacillus subtilis. Genetics is a component of his Gene, Expression quantitative trait loci, Candidate gene, Genome and Genetic architecture studies. His study on Genome-wide association study is covered under Single-nucleotide polymorphism.

His research in Internal medicine intersects with topics in Endocrinology, Study of Health in Pomerania and Cardiology. His Proteome research incorporates themes from Proteomics and Microbiology. The various areas that Uwe Völker examines in his Bacillus subtilis study include Mutant, Regulon, Biochemistry, Cell biology and Sigma factor.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (25.04%)
  • Genome-wide association study (23.09%)
  • Internal medicine (21.31%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2019-2021)?

  • Genome-wide association study (23.09%)
  • Genetics (25.04%)
  • Internal medicine (21.31%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Genome-wide association study, Genetics, Internal medicine, Disease and Mendelian randomization. His Genome-wide association study study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Phenotype, Microbiome, Genetic association and Mendelian inheritance. His research related to Gene, Genetic architecture, Locus, Genome and Allele might be considered part of Genetics.

The Internal medicine study combines topics in areas such as Endocrinology, Single-nucleotide polymorphism, Exome and Cardiology. His Disease study also includes fields such as

  • Gallstones, which have a strong connection to Body mass index,
  • Cohort which intersects with area such as Myocardial infarction, Epidemiology, Minor allele frequency and Coronary artery disease. His Mendelian randomization study combines topics in areas such as Quantitative trait locus and Bioinformatics.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Genome-wide association and Mendelian randomisation analysis provide insights into the pathogenesis of heart failure. (70 citations)
  • The Polygenic and Monogenic Basis of Blood Traits and Diseases (37 citations)
  • Trans-ethnic and Ancestry-Specific Blood-Cell Genetics in 746,667 Individuals from 5 Global Populations. (33 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Enzyme
  • Internal medicine

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Genome-wide association study, Genetics, Genetic architecture, Disease and Immunology. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Bioinformatics, Mendelian Randomization Analysis, Atrial fibrillation, Heritability and Mendelian inheritance. His works in Locus and Genetic variation are all subjects of inquiry into Genetics.

His Genetic architecture study results in a more complete grasp of Gene. Uwe Völker has researched Disease in several fields, including Microbiome, Biobank, Liver disease, Genetic association and Study of Health in Pomerania. Uwe Völker has included themes like Endocrinology and Population study in his Internal medicine study.
