His primary scientific interests are in Genome, Genetics, Gene, Biochemistry and Phylogenetics. His Genome study incorporates themes from Chloroplast, Plastid, Organelle and Phylogenetic tree. His research in Organelle intersects with topics in Eukaryotic chromosome fine structure, Mitochondrion and Eukaryote.
His work in Eukaryote tackles topics such as Symbiogenesis which are related to areas like Ecology. His work in Nuclear gene, Genome evolution, Chloroplast DNA, Genetic transfer and Domestication are all subfields of Genetics research. His research investigates the connection between Nuclear gene and topics such as Endosymbiosis that intersect with problems in Evolutionary biology and Cell.
His primary areas of study are Genetics, Gene, Genome, Monte Carlo method and Biochemistry. His study in Nuclear gene, Phylogenetics, Phylogenetic tree, Genome evolution and Chloroplast DNA is carried out as part of his studies in Genetics. His study in Chloroplast, Eukaryote and Intron is done as part of Gene.
His Genome research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Evolutionary biology, Endosymbiosis, Plastid and Organelle. His Evolutionary biology research incorporates elements of Lineage and Archaea. His Monte Carlo method research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Statistical physics and Mathematical optimization.
William Martin mainly investigates Evolutionary biology, Genome, Eukaryote, Phylogenetics and Gene. He has included themes like Context, Lineage and Mitochondrion in his Evolutionary biology study. His is involved in several facets of Genome study, as is seen by his studies on Horizontal gene transfer and Genome evolution.
His study in Eukaryote is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Ecology, Endosymbiosis, Archaea, Symbiogenesis and Endomembrane system. His study looks at the intersection of Phylogenetics and topics like Phylogenetic tree with Phylum. Gene is a subfield of Genetics that he tackles.
William Martin mostly deals with Eukaryote, Evolutionary biology, Phylogenetics, Biochemistry and Archaea. His Eukaryote research is under the purview of Genetics. His Evolutionary biology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Prokaryotic cells and Lineage.
His study looks at the relationship between Biochemistry and topics such as Autotroph, which overlap with Abiogenesis, Ferredoxin, Carbon fixation, Phototroph and Anoxygenic photosynthesis. His Endosymbiosis research integrates issues from Hydrogenosome and Mitochondrion. His Genome study deals with the bigger picture of Gene.
