Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Botany
  • Genetics

Sorghum, Agronomy, Botany, Sweet sorghum and Quantitative trait locus are his primary areas of study. His Sorghum research integrates issues from Germplasm, Growing season, Crop, Hordeum vulgare and Hybrid. The Agronomy study combines topics in areas such as Genetic variability and Genetic variation.

His studies deal with areas such as Arabidopsis thaliana, Genome, Circadian clock, Locus and Polyphenol as well as Botany. The concepts of his Sweet sorghum study are interwoven with issues in Biomass, Biofuel, Ethanol fuel, Bioenergy and Sugar. His Quantitative trait locus research includes elements of Inflorescence, Association mapping and Oryza sativa.

His most cited work include:

  • Designing sorghum as a dedicated bioenergy feedstock (494 citations)
  • Community Resources and Strategies for Association Mapping in Sorghum (246 citations)
  • Coincident light and clock regulation of pseudoresponse regulator protein 37 (PRR37) controls photoperiodic flowering in sorghum (214 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Sorghum, Agronomy, Sweet sorghum, Botany and Hybrid. His research integrates issues of Germplasm, Horticulture, Crop, Quantitative trait locus and Biomass in his study of Sorghum. His Agronomy research incorporates themes from Bioenergy and Starch.

His research in Sweet sorghum tackles topics such as Sugar which are related to areas like Sucrose. William L. Rooney combines subjects such as Allele and Backcrossing with his study of Botany. His work carried out in the field of Hybrid brings together such families of science as Cytoplasmic male sterility and Pollen.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Sorghum (76.89%)
  • Agronomy (50.00%)
  • Sweet sorghum (21.43%)

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

  • Sorghum (76.89%)
  • Agronomy (50.00%)
  • Horticulture (15.97%)

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

William L. Rooney mainly focuses on Sorghum, Agronomy, Horticulture, Quantitative trait locus and Raw material. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Germplasm, Panicle, Gene, Candidate gene and Hybrid. His Agronomy study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Wax and Water vapor.

The various areas that William L. Rooney examines in his Horticulture study include Gene flow, Genome-wide association study, Single-nucleotide polymorphism and Pollen. His research in Quantitative trait locus intersects with topics in Genomics and Plant breeding. His Raw material course of study focuses on Biomass and Dry matter, Biofuel, Animal science, Pulp and paper industry and Renewable energy.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • A review of sweet sorghum as a viable renewable bioenergy crop and its techno-economic analysis (29 citations)
  • Automated detection and measurement of individual sorghum panicles using density-based clustering of terrestrial lidar data (17 citations)
  • Maturity2, a novel regulator of flowering time in Sorghum bicolor, increases expression of SbPRR37 and SbCO in long days delaying flowering. (13 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Botany
  • Genetics

William L. Rooney focuses on Sorghum, Agronomy, Panicle, Heritability and Quantitative trait locus. William L. Rooney merges many fields, such as Sorghum and Term, in his writings. His study in the field of Grain yield and Aphid is also linked to topics like Throughput, Melanaphis sacchari and Coccinellidae.

His Heritability research includes themes of Endosperm, Food science and Mutant. As a member of one scientific family, William L. Rooney mostly works in the field of Endosperm, focusing on Starch and, on occasion, Wild type, Bioenergy, Sweet sorghum and Bagasse. His work deals with themes such as Positional cloning, Genetic analysis and Epistasis, which intersect with Quantitative trait locus.
