Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Genetics
  • DNA

His primary scientific interests are in Genetics, Genome, Gene, Gene duplication and Oryza sativa. Wen Wang focuses mostly in the field of Genetics, narrowing it down to matters related to Evolutionary biology and, in some cases, Genome editing. The concepts of his Genome study are interwoven with issues in Optical mapping and Sequence assembly.

His work in Gene duplication addresses issues such as Gene prediction, which are connected to fields such as Segmental duplication, Gene mapping, Single-nucleotide polymorphism and Sequence analysis. His research in Oryza sativa intersects with topics in Plant genetics and Botany. His study in Genomics is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Biodiversity, Germplasm and Gene bank.

His most cited work include:

  • The sequence and de novo assembly of the giant panda genome (932 citations)
  • A draft sequence for the genome of the domesticated silkworm (Bombyx mori). (891 citations)
  • The Genomes of Oryza sativa: a history of duplications. (767 citations)

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

Gene, Genome, Genetics, Evolutionary biology and Genomics are his primary areas of study. His work on Gene is being expanded to include thematically relevant topics such as Function. His Genome study combines topics in areas such as Computational biology, CRISPR and Sequence assembly.

His work deals with themes such as Chromosome, Contig and Nanopore sequencing, which intersect with Sequence assembly. His is doing research in Domestication, Gene duplication, Exon, Drosophila melanogaster and Molecular evolution, both of which are found in Genetics. The Evolutionary biology study which covers Phylogenetic tree that intersects with Phylogenetics and Mitochondrial DNA.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Gene (62.55%)
  • Genome (54.91%)
  • Genetics (44.00%)

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

  • Evolutionary biology (56.73%)
  • Genome (54.91%)
  • Gene (62.55%)

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

Wen Wang mostly deals with Evolutionary biology, Genome, Gene, Phylogenetic tree and Sequence assembly. The concepts of his Evolutionary biology study are interwoven with issues in Genome evolution, Genome size, Ruminantia, Mitochondrial DNA and Genomics. Wen Wang has included themes like Computational biology and CRISPR in his Genome study.

Gene is a subfield of Genetics that Wen Wang explores. The Phylogenetic tree study combines topics in areas such as Cloning, Procapra przewalskii, Phylogenetics and GC-content. His Sequence assembly study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Contig, Crop, Biotechnology, Nanopore sequencing and Chromosome.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Large-scale ruminant genome sequencing provides insights into their evolution and distinct traits. (75 citations)
  • Large-scale ruminant genome sequencing provides insights into their evolution and distinct traits. (75 citations)
  • Large-scale ruminant genome sequencing provides insights into their evolution and distinct traits. (75 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Genetics

His primary areas of investigation include Genome, Gene, Evolutionary biology, Antler and Genetics. In the field of Genome, his study on Reference genome overlaps with subjects such as Ecological niche. His studies deal with areas such as Genetic diversity and Function as well as Gene.

His Evolutionary biology research incorporates elements of Gene family, Effects of high altitude on humans, Genomics, Phylogenetics and Adaptation. His work carried out in the field of Antler brings together such families of science as Zoology, Binding ability, Positive selection and Metabolic efficiency. Gene expression and Domestication are among the areas of Genetics where the researcher is concentrating his efforts.
