Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Gene expression

His primary areas of study are Genetics, DNA methylation, Methylation, RNA-Directed DNA Methylation and Gene. His study in Regulation of gene expression, Arabidopsis, Small RNA, RNA and Trans-acting siRNA are all subfields of Genetics. Xiaofeng Cao combines subjects such as Seed dormancy, Histone H3 and Cell biology with his study of Arabidopsis.

Many of his studies on DNA methylation apply to Molecular biology as well. He works mostly in the field of Methylation, limiting it down to topics relating to CpG site and, in certain cases, Allele. His work deals with themes such as EZH2, Histone methylation, Epigenetics of physical exercise and Histone methyltransferase, which intersect with RNA-Directed DNA Methylation.

His most cited work include:

  • Control of CpNpG DNA methylation by the KRYPTONITE histone H3 methyltransferase (1017 citations)
  • Criteria for Annotation of Plant MicroRNAs (1003 citations)
  • ARGONAUTE4 Control of Locus-Specific siRNA Accumulation and DNA and Histone Methylation (915 citations)

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

Xiaofeng Cao spends much of his time researching Genetics, Arabidopsis, Cell biology, Gene and Regulation of gene expression. His Genetics study focuses mostly on DNA methylation, Epigenetics, Methylation, Histone methyltransferase and Histone methylation. His study in Molecular biology extends to DNA methylation with its themes.

The Histone methyltransferase study combines topics in areas such as Epigenomics, Histone H2A, EZH2 and Histone code. His studies in Arabidopsis integrate themes in fields like Arabidopsis thaliana, Histone H3, Gene silencing and Demethylase. Within one scientific family, Xiaofeng Cao focuses on topics pertaining to Computational biology under Gene, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Gene expression.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genetics (58.04%)
  • Arabidopsis (42.66%)
  • Cell biology (29.37%)

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

  • Cell biology (29.37%)
  • Arabidopsis (42.66%)
  • Regulation of gene expression (25.17%)

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

Cell biology, Arabidopsis, Regulation of gene expression, RNA and Gene are his primary areas of study. The various areas that he examines in his Cell biology study include Arabidopsis thaliana, Epigenetics, Demethylase, Transcription factor and microRNA. His work is dedicated to discovering how Arabidopsis, Polyadenylation are connected with Auxin and other disciplines.

Xiaofeng Cao focuses mostly in the field of Regulation of gene expression, narrowing it down to topics relating to Gene expression and, in certain cases, Computational biology. His work in the fields of RNA, such as RNA splicing, Small interfering RNA and Non-coding RNA, overlaps with other areas such as Bright star. His Chromatin study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Methylation and DNA methylation.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • MicroRNAs and Their Regulatory Roles in Plant-Environment Interactions. (121 citations)
  • An H3K27me3 demethylase-HSFA2 regulatory loop orchestrates transgenerational thermomemory in Arabidopsis (36 citations)
  • The Histone H3K4 Demethylase JMJ16 Represses Leaf Senescence in Arabidopsis (33 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Gene expression

His primary areas of investigation include Cell biology, Regulation of gene expression, Transcription factor, Arabidopsis and Demethylase. His research in Regulation of gene expression intersects with topics in Gene silencing and Gene expression. His research integrates issues of Promoter, Oryza sativa and Epigenetics in his study of Transcription factor.

His Arabidopsis research is within the category of Mutant. The concepts of his Demethylase study are interwoven with issues in Protein structure, Arabidopsis thaliana and Histone H3. Gene covers Xiaofeng Cao research in Biogenesis.
