Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Enzyme
  • Gene
  • Amino acid

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Biochemistry, Stereochemistry, Biosynthesis, Polyketide and Gene. Polyketide synthase, Enzyme, Fungal protein, Gene cluster and Nonribosomal peptide are the primary areas of interest in his Biochemistry study. His research integrates issues of Protein structure, Peptide sequence, Isoleucine and NAD+ kinase in his study of Stereochemistry.

His Biosynthesis research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Amino acid, Natural product, Indole test and Escherichia coli. His research in Polyketide intersects with topics in Cyclase, Fungal genome, Data sequences, Acyltransferase and ATP synthase. His study looks at the relationship between Gene and fields such as Synthetic biology, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems.

His most cited work include:

  • Minimum Information about a Biosynthetic Gene cluster. (418 citations)
  • Tailoring nanocarriers for intracellular protein delivery. (321 citations)
  • A novel intracellular protein delivery platform based on single-protein nanocapsules (310 citations)

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

Yi Tang focuses on Biochemistry, Stereochemistry, Biosynthesis, Polyketide and Enzyme. Gene cluster, Nonribosomal peptide, Gene, Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Amino acid are subfields of Biochemistry in which his conducts study. His Stereochemistry research incorporates themes from Protein structure, Regioselectivity, Substrate and Biocatalysis.

His Biosynthesis course of study focuses on Natural product and Computational biology and Protein engineering. His Polyketide research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Cyclase, ATP synthase, Acyl carrier protein and Thioesterase. His Enzyme study combines topics in areas such as Ring and Heterologous expression.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Biochemistry (51.82%)
  • Stereochemistry (44.16%)
  • Biosynthesis (39.42%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Biosynthesis (39.42%)
  • Stereochemistry (44.16%)
  • Enzyme (23.72%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Biosynthesis, Stereochemistry, Enzyme, Biochemistry and Polyketide. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Amino acid, Aldol condensation, Mode of action, Quinolone and Natural product. His studies in Stereochemistry integrate themes in fields like Ring, Catalysis, Stereoselectivity and Substrate.

His work carried out in the field of Enzyme brings together such families of science as In vitro, Mutant and Pericyclic reaction. His work on Biochemistry is being expanded to include thematically relevant topics such as Strain. His Polyketide research incorporates elements of Gene cluster, Protein domain, Dioxygenase and Thioesterase.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Resistance-gene-directed discovery of a natural-product herbicide with a new mode of action. (74 citations)
  • HEx: A heterologous expression platform for the discovery of fungal natural products (71 citations)
  • The expanding world of biosynthetic pericyclases: cooperation of experiment and theory for discovery (31 citations)

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

  • Enzyme
  • Gene
  • Amino acid

Yi Tang mostly deals with Biosynthesis, Natural product, Stereochemistry, Computational biology and Gene. The study incorporates disciplines such as G protein-coupled receptor and Histidine in addition to Biosynthesis. His study in Stereochemistry is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Polyketide synthase, Gene cluster, Peptide and Enzyme.

He interconnects Mode of action, Identification and Heterologous expression in the investigation of issues within Computational biology. His Gene study incorporates themes from Fungus and Biofertilizer. His Polyketide study is concerned with the field of Biochemistry as a whole.
