Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Bacteria
  • Genome

William C. Nierman mainly focuses on Genome, Genetics, Gene, Fungal genetics and Whole genome sequencing. His Genome research focuses on Aspergillus nidulans and how it relates to Metabolic engineering, Penicillin and Penicillium chrysogenum. Genetics and Insertion sequence are two areas of study in which he engages in interdisciplinary work.

His Gene study frequently links to related topics such as Microbiology. Within one scientific family, William C. Nierman focuses on topics pertaining to Aspergillus fumigatus under Fungal genetics, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Aspergillus and Regulation of gene expression. His Sequence analysis study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Phenotype, Fungus and Genomic organization.

His most cited work include:

  • Genome sequence of the Brown Norway rat yields insights into mammalian evolution (1795 citations)
  • DNA sequence of both chromosomes of the cholera pathogen Vibrio cholerae (1551 citations)
  • Genomic sequence of the pathogenic and allergenic filamentous fungus Aspergillus fumigatus (1147 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Genetics, Gene, Genome, Microbiology and Aspergillus fumigatus. His study involves Virulence, Burkholderia mallei, Burkholderia pseudomallei, Comparative genomics and Fungal genetics, a branch of Genetics. His Gene research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Aspergillus flavus and Aflatoxin.

His Genome research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Plasmid and Sequence analysis. His Microbiology study combines topics in areas such as Phenotype, Aspergillosis and Burkholderia. In Aspergillus fumigatus, he works on issues like Regulation of gene expression, which are connected to Gene expression.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (75.14%)
  • Gene (67.03%)
  • Genome (66.49%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Microbiology (43.78%)
  • Genome (66.49%)
  • Aspergillus fumigatus (25.95%)

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

William C. Nierman focuses on Microbiology, Genome, Aspergillus fumigatus, Genetics and Whole genome sequencing. His Microbiology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Virology, Secondary metabolite and Burkholderia pseudomallei. His research in Genome tackles topics such as Burkholderia contaminans which are related to areas like Horizontal gene transfer and Antibiotic sensitivity.

William C. Nierman interconnects Transcription factor, Hyphal growth, Aspergillus and Virulence in the investigation of issues within Aspergillus fumigatus. His studies in Gene and Genome size are all subfields of Genetics research. His Whole genome sequencing research includes themes of Systemic mycosis, Pathogen and Talaromyces stipitatus.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Ecology of aspergillosis: insights into the pathogenic potency of Aspergillus fumigatus and some other Aspergillus species (126 citations)
  • Genome Sequence of Aspergillus flavus NRRL 3357, a Strain That Causes Aflatoxin Contamination of Food and Feed (72 citations)
  • Transcriptome Analysis of Aspergillus flavus Reveals veA-Dependent Regulation of Secondary Metabolite Gene Clusters, Including the Novel Aflavarin Cluster (48 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Bacteria
  • Genome

His primary scientific interests are in Microbiology, Whole genome sequencing, Virulence, Fungus and Aspergillus fumigatus. His research in Microbiology intersects with topics in Gene cluster, Secondary metabolism and Secondary metabolite. His Gene cluster study is related to the wider topic of Gene.

His Whole genome sequencing research entails a greater understanding of Genome. His Virulence study necessitates a more in-depth grasp of Genetics. His work is dedicated to discovering how Fungus, Aspergillosis are connected with Ecology, Aspergillus, Immunodeficiency, Species complex and Crop and other disciplines.
