Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Botany
  • Bacteria
  • 16S ribosomal RNA

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in 16S ribosomal RNA, Botany, Microbiology, Phylogenetic tree and Bacteria. His 16S ribosomal RNA research incorporates elements of Taxonomy, Sequence analysis, Strain and Soil microbiology. The various areas that Wen-Jun Li examines in his Botany study include Ribosomal RNA, Actinomycetales, Ecology and Actinobacteria.

His Ribosomal RNA study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Phylogenetics and Chemotaxonomy. In his study, Saccharopolyspora is inextricably linked to Pseudonocardiaceae, which falls within the broad field of Microbiology. The study incorporates disciplines such as Peptidoglycan, Agar plate, Genus and genomic DNA in addition to Phylogenetic tree.

His most cited work include:

  • Reference sequence (RefSeq) database at NCBI: current status, taxonomic expansion, and functional annotation (2211 citations)
  • Genome-wide association studies of 14 agronomic traits in rice landraces (1313 citations)
  • Georgenia ruanii sp. nov., a novel actinobacterium isolated from forest soil in Yunnan (China), and emended description of the genus Georgenia. (674 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are 16S ribosomal RNA, Microbiology, Botany, Strain and Phylogenetic tree. His 16S ribosomal RNA study is associated with Bacteria. As a part of the same scientific study, Wen-Jun Li usually deals with the Microbiology, concentrating on Diamino acid and frequently concerns with Diaminopimelic acid.

His research integrates issues of Actinomycetales and Actinobacteria in his study of Botany. His work in Strain addresses subjects such as Galactose, which are connected to disciplines such as Mannose. His Phylogenetic tree study incorporates themes from Arabinose and Type species.

He most often published in these fields:

  • 16S ribosomal RNA (122.04%)
  • Microbiology (93.73%)
  • Botany (82.84%)

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

  • 16S ribosomal RNA (122.04%)
  • Strain (79.01%)
  • Phylogenetic tree (72.74%)

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

Wen-Jun Li spends much of his time researching 16S ribosomal RNA, Strain, Phylogenetic tree, Bacteria and Microbiology. Wen-Jun Li combines subjects such as genomic DNA, Thermophile and Genus, Botany with his study of 16S ribosomal RNA. His study looks at the intersection of Botany and topics like Actinobacteria with Halophyte and Proteobacteria.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Diamino acid, Peptidoglycan, Stereochemistry, Glycolipid and Phosphatidylglycerol. His Phylogenetic tree research incorporates elements of Molecular biology and Genome. His Microbiology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Rhamnose, Mannose, Galactose, Arabinose and Phosphatidylinositol.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Clades of huge phages from across Earth’s ecosystems (91 citations)
  • Wide diversity of methane and short-chain alkane metabolisms in uncultured archaea. (59 citations)
  • Phylogenomics of 10,575 genomes reveals evolutionary proximity between domains Bacteria and Archaea. (55 citations)

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

  • Botany
  • Bacteria
  • 16S ribosomal RNA

His main research concerns 16S ribosomal RNA, Phylogenetic tree, Strain, Microbiology and Glycolipid. His 16S ribosomal RNA study is related to the wider topic of Bacteria. His Bacteria study combines topics in areas such as genomic DNA, Taxonomy and Fatty acid.

His Phylogenetic tree research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Evolutionary biology, Genome and Phylogenetics. Wen-Jun Li has researched Strain in several fields, including Chloroflexi, Halophile, Diamino acid, Genus and Terpenoid. His work carried out in the field of Microbiology brings together such families of science as Butyric acid, Ruminococcaceae, Lachnospiraceae and Intestinal permeability.
