Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Bacteria
  • Gene
  • Enzyme

His primary areas of study are Microbiology, Gut flora, Metagenomics, Microbiome and Akkermansia muciniphila. His research in Microbiology intersects with topics in Human gastrointestinal tract, Lactobacillus, Bacteria and Disease. The various areas that Willem M. de Vos examines in his Bacteria study include Ribosomal RNA and Biochemistry.

Willem M. de Vos has included themes like Adipose tissue, Internal medicine, Firmicutes and Insulin resistance in his Gut flora study. Willem M. de Vos combines subjects such as DNA extraction, Genome, Computational biology and Phylogenetics with his study of Metagenomics. His Microbiome study combines topics in areas such as Evolutionary biology and Gastrointestinal tract.

His most cited work include:

  • Enterotypes of the human gut microbiome (3983 citations)
  • Enterotypes of the human gut microbiome (3983 citations)
  • Duodenal Infusion of Donor Feces for Recurrent Clostridium difficile (2301 citations)

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

Microbiology, Biochemistry, Gut flora, Bacteria and Genetics are his primary areas of study. His studies deal with areas such as Probiotic, Lactobacillus, Lactobacillus rhamnosus, 16S ribosomal RNA and Akkermansia muciniphila as well as Microbiology. His Akkermansia muciniphila research integrates issues from Akkermansia, Mucin and Mucus.

The concepts of his Biochemistry study are interwoven with issues in Nisin, Molecular biology, Lactococcus lactis and Lactobacillus plantarum. His Gut flora research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Microbiome, Internal medicine, Feces and Physiology. His Microbiome research includes elements of Ecology and Metagenomics.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Microbiology (50.44%)
  • Biochemistry (30.02%)
  • Gut flora (31.88%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Gut flora (31.88%)
  • Microbiology (50.44%)
  • Akkermansia muciniphila (15.94%)

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

Willem M. de Vos mostly deals with Gut flora, Microbiology, Akkermansia muciniphila, Microbiome and Internal medicine. His Gut flora study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Probiotic, Feces, Antibiotics, Immune system and Physiology. He has researched Microbiology in several fields, including Biofilm, 16S ribosomal RNA, Gene, Bacteria and Pilus.

He interconnects Intestinal mucosa, Mucus, Akkermansia, Verrucomicrobia and Mucin in the investigation of issues within Akkermansia muciniphila. His research integrates issues of Ecology, Computational biology, Faecalibacterium prausnitzii and Metagenomics in his study of Microbiome. His Internal medicine study incorporates themes from Gastroenterology and Endocrinology.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • A purified membrane protein from Akkermansia muciniphila or the pasteurized bacterium improves metabolism in obese and diabetic mice (639 citations)
  • A purified membrane protein from Akkermansia muciniphila or the pasteurized bacterium improves metabolism in obese and diabetic mice (639 citations)
  • The First Microbial Colonizers of the Human Gut: Composition, Activities, and Health Implications of the Infant Gut Microbiota. (421 citations)

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

  • Bacteria
  • Enzyme
  • Gene

His primary areas of investigation include Gut flora, Akkermansia muciniphila, Microbiome, Microbiology and Mucin. His Gut flora study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Breast feeding, Internal medicine, Antibiotics and Insulin resistance. His Internal medicine study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Gastroenterology and Endocrinology.

His Akkermansia muciniphila research incorporates elements of Biotechnology, Immune system, Faecalibacterium prausnitzii and Phylogenetics. The concepts of his Microbiome study are interwoven with issues in Ecology, Feces, Physiology and Metagenomics. His Microbiology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Intestinal mucosa, Mucus, Biochemistry, Anaerostipes caccae and Syntrophy.
