Molecular biology, Transcription factor, Promoter, Enhancer and Transcription are his primary areas of study. Walter Schaffner has researched Molecular biology in several fields, including Gene expression, DNA methylation, Gene, Regulation of gene expression and CpG site. His work on DNA-binding protein as part of general Transcription factor research is frequently linked to Histone octamer, bridging the gap between disciplines.
Walter Schaffner combines subjects such as Sequence motif, Reporter gene and Cell biology with his study of Promoter. His research investigates the connection between Enhancer and topics such as Regulatory sequence that intersect with issues in Binding protein and Histone H2B. The concepts of his Transcription study are interwoven with issues in Complementary DNA, TATA box and Octamer transcription factor.
Walter Schaffner focuses on Molecular biology, Enhancer, Transcription factor, Gene and Genetics. The study incorporates disciplines such as DNA, DNA-binding protein, Transfection, Promoter and Transcription in addition to Molecular biology. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Reporter gene and Regulatory sequence.
His study in Enhancer is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Regulation of gene expression, Immunoglobulin heavy chain and Cell biology. The Cell biology study combines topics in areas such as RNA polymerase II and General transcription factor. His work focuses on many connections between Transcription factor and other disciplines, such as Metallothionein, that overlap with his field of interest in Mutant.
His primary areas of investigation include Transcription factor, Genetics, Cell biology, Gene and Molecular biology. His studies in Transcription factor integrate themes in fields like Amino acid, Homeostasis, Mutant, Reporter gene and Metallothionein. His Cell biology study incorporates themes from Ecology, Rodent, Carcinogenesis, Transcription and Zinc finger transcription factor.
As part of one scientific family, Walter Schaffner deals mainly with the area of Gene, narrowing it down to issues related to the Serine, and often General transcription factor. His Molecular biology study incorporates themes from Plasma protein binding, Zinc finger, DNA-binding protein, Enhancer and Oligonucleotide. The various areas that Walter Schaffner examines in his Enhancer study include Promoter and Metal regulatory transcription factor 1.
His primary areas of study are Transcription factor, Metallothionein, Cell biology, Molecular biology and Regulation of gene expression. His study looks at the intersection of Transcription factor and topics like Homeostasis with Copper toxicity and Botany. Walter Schaffner is doing genetic studies as part of his Gene and Biochemistry and Metallothionein investigations.
His Gene study necessitates a more in-depth grasp of Genetics. His research in Molecular biology intersects with topics in Enhancer, DNA-binding protein and Gene family. The Enhancer study which covers Promoter that intersects with Enhancer trap.
