Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Bacteria
  • DNA

Wim Gaastra mainly focuses on Microbiology, Escherichia coli, Virulence, Genetics and Molecular biology. Wim Gaastra interconnects Bacteria, Transmission, Virology and Disease in the investigation of issues within Microbiology. His Escherichia coli research incorporates themes from Genotype and Phylogenetic tree.

His research integrates issues of Bordetella pertussis, Whooping cough and Antigenic variation in his study of Virulence. His work on Gene and Direct repeat as part of his general Genetics study is frequently connected to CRISPR Spacers and Comparative genomics, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science. His study focuses on the intersection of Molecular biology and fields such as Flagellin with connections in the field of Arcobacter, Proteobacteria, Campylobacter and Arcobacter butzleri.

His most cited work include:

  • Identification of genes that are associated with DNA repeats in prokaryotes. (1118 citations)
  • Colonization factors of human enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli (ETEC) (405 citations)
  • Polymorphism in the Bordetella pertussis Virulence Factors P.69/Pertactin and Pertussis Toxin in The Netherlands: Temporal Trends and Evidence for Vaccine-Driven Evolution (275 citations)

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

Wim Gaastra spends much of his time researching Microbiology, Escherichia coli, Molecular biology, Genetics and Gene. His Microbiology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli, Fimbria, Virulence, Bacteria and Enterobacteriaceae. His Virulence research includes elements of Immunology and Virology.

His Escherichia coli research includes themes of Southern blot, Polymerase chain reaction, Hemolysin and Genotype. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Nucleic acid sequence, Plasmid, Campylobacter jejuni, Molecular cloning and Operon. His studies link Function with Gene.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Microbiology (58.90%)
  • Escherichia coli (32.88%)
  • Molecular biology (26.03%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2004-2020)?

  • Microbiology (58.90%)
  • Salmonella (7.53%)
  • Bacteria (13.01%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Microbiology, Salmonella, Bacteria, Arcobacter and Genetics. His Microbiology study incorporates themes from Cell culture, Biofilm, Staphylococcus aureus, Flagellin and Virulence. His Flagellin research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Heat shock protein, Hsp70, Incubation, Molecular biology and Carvacrol.

His work carried out in the field of Salmonella brings together such families of science as Serotype, Antibiotic resistance, Integron and Genomic island. His studies deal with areas such as Escherichia coli, Drug resistance and Virology as well as Antibiotic resistance. His Bacteria study typically links adjacent topics like Enterobacteriaceae.

Between 2004 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • Editorial: Assessing the antimicrobial susceptibility of bacteria obtained from animals (255 citations)
  • Pythium insidiosum: an overview. (191 citations)
  • Carvacrol induces heat shock protein 60 and inhibits synthesis of flagellin in Escherichia coli O157:H7. (185 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • Bacteria
  • DNA

Wim Gaastra mostly deals with Microbiology, Bacteria, Antibiotic resistance, Salmonella and Antimicrobial susceptibility. The various areas that Wim Gaastra examines in his Microbiology study include Enterobacteriaceae and Escherichia coli. His Escherichia coli research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Virology, Ceftiofur, Cephalosporin, Molecular biology and Carvacrol.

His Flagellin, Staphylococcus aureus and Micrococcaceae study in the realm of Bacteria connects with subjects such as Epsilonproteobacteria. His work deals with themes such as Serotype and Food microbiology, which intersect with Salmonella. His Antimicrobial susceptibility research focuses on Intensive care medicine and how it relates to Drug susceptibility.
