Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Genetics

His primary scientific interests are in Genome, Genetics, Gene, Whole genome sequencing and Genetic variation. His studies deal with areas such as Domestication, Biotechnology and Botany as well as Genome. Many of his studies involve connections with topics such as Computational biology and Genetics.

His Whole genome sequencing research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Genome project, Chinese hamster ovary cell, Bacterial artificial chromosome, Identification and Segmental duplication. His Genetic variation research includes elements of Genetic variability, Genetic association, Gene mapping and Oryza sativa, Oryza rufipogon. The Exome sequencing study combines topics in areas such as 1000 Genomes Project and Somatic evolution in cancer.

His most cited work include:

  • A global reference for human genetic variation. (7825 citations)
  • The tomato genome sequence provides insights into fleshy fruit evolution (1991 citations)
  • The genome of the mesopolyploid crop species Brassica rapa (1409 citations)

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

Xun Xu mainly investigates Genome, Genetics, Gene, Computational biology and Evolutionary biology. The various areas that Xun Xu examines in his Genome study include DNA sequencing and Sequence assembly. His research in Exome sequencing, Metagenomics, Domestication, Genetic variation and Human genome are components of Genetics.

His Metagenomics study deals with Gut flora intersecting with Physiology and Microbiome. His study in Transcriptome, Genome size and Chromosome is done as part of Gene. His DNA research extends to the thematically linked field of Computational biology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Genome (33.91%)
  • Genetics (29.35%)
  • Gene (20.87%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2020-2021)?

  • Genome (33.91%)
  • Genetics (29.35%)
  • Metagenomics (8.04%)

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

Xun Xu focuses on Genome, Genetics, Metagenomics, Computational biology and Cell. His Genome study is concerned with the larger field of Gene. His Gene research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Evolutionary biology and African lungfish, Protopterus.

His Genetics study combines topics in areas such as Evolutionary dynamics and Genetic diversity. His Metagenomics research incorporates themes from Gut flora, Immunology, Genome-wide association study, Age related and Cohort. His Computational biology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Neofunctionalization and Reference genome.

Between 2020 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Single-cell landscape of the ecosystem in early-relapse hepatocellular carcinoma. (8 citations)
  • Intra-host variation and evolutionary dynamics of SARS-CoV-2 populations in COVID-19 patients. (6 citations)
  • African lungfish genome sheds light on the vertebrate water-to-land transition. (6 citations)

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

  • Gene
  • DNA
  • Genetics

Xun Xu mostly deals with Genome, Immune system, Transcriptome, Cell and Haplotype. His work deals with themes such as Evolutionary biology, Lungfish, African lungfish, Protopterus and Vertebrate, which intersect with Genome. His Immune system research integrates issues from Hepatocellular carcinoma and Cancer research.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including In situ, Proof of concept and Resolution. Xun Xu interconnects Evolutionary dynamics, Phylogenetics, Genetic diversity and Allele frequency in the investigation of issues within Haplotype. Genotype is the subject of his research, which falls under Genetics.
