1997 - Hellman Fellow

Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Enzyme
  • DNA
  • Gene

His primary scientific interests are in RNA, Stereochemistry, Biochemistry, Combinatorial chemistry and Oligonucleotide. His RNA research includes themes of Messenger RNA, Small molecule, Binding site and Pyrimidine. His research integrates issues of Nucleic acid, Neomycin, Aminoglycoside, Paromomycin and Acridine in his study of Stereochemistry.

His work on Fluorescence expands to the thematically related Biochemistry. The Combinatorial chemistry study combines topics in areas such as Supramolecular chemistry, Coordination complex, Metal and Heteronuclear molecule. His work investigates the relationship between Oligonucleotide and topics such as Nucleoside that intersect with problems in Phosphoramidite and Nucleobase.

His most cited work include:

  • Antibiotics and Bacterial Resistance in the 21st Century (663 citations)
  • Fluorescent Analogs of Biomolecular Building Blocks: Design, Properties, and Applications (595 citations)
  • Ionic recognition and selective response in self assembling monolayer membranes on electrodes (322 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Stereochemistry, RNA, Biochemistry, Fluorescence and Combinatorial chemistry. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Molecule, Nucleic acid and Oligonucleotide, DNA. His RNA research integrates issues from Ribosomal RNA, Aminoglycoside, Small molecule and Binding site.

In general Biochemistry study, his work on Enzyme, Heparan sulfate, Adenosine and Adenosine deaminase often relates to the realm of T7 RNA polymerase, thereby connecting several areas of interest. His Fluorescence research incorporates elements of Nucleobase, Nucleoside analogue, Thiophene, Biophysics and Photochemistry. Yitzhak Tor interconnects Coordination complex and Metal in the investigation of issues within Combinatorial chemistry.

  • RNA (26.24%)
  • Biochemistry (25.53%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2013-2021)?

  • Biochemistry (25.53%)
  • Stereochemistry (30.85%)
  • Fluorescence (16.67%)

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

His primary areas of study are Biochemistry, Stereochemistry, Fluorescence, Enzyme and Nucleoside. His study in Biochemistry concentrates on Heparan sulfate, Transporter, Adenosine, Adenosine deaminase and RNA. His RNA research incorporates themes from Aminoglycoside, Polymerase, Transcription and Oligonucleotide.

His studies in Stereochemistry integrate themes in fields like DNA, Cytidine and Cofactor. His work focuses on many connections between Fluorescence and other disciplines, such as Photochemistry, that overlap with his field of interest in Molecule. His Nucleoside study incorporates themes from Nucleobase and Uridine.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Antibiotics and Bacterial Resistance in the 21st Century (663 citations)
  • Targeting heparin and heparan sulfate protein interactions (50 citations)
  • Chemical Mutagenesis of an Emissive RNA Alphabet. (47 citations)

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

  • Enzyme
  • DNA
  • Gene

His main research concerns Stereochemistry, Nucleoside, Biochemistry, Nucleobase and Fluorescence. His Stereochemistry research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Cofactor, Purine, Enzyme and Oligonucleotide, DNA. His Nucleoside research incorporates elements of RNA and Guanosine.

Yitzhak Tor works in the field of RNA, focusing on Ribozyme in particular. His Nucleobase research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Nucleic acid, DNA methylation, DNA methyltransferase, Cytosine and Regulation of gene expression. Yitzhak Tor is interested in Quantum yield, which is a field of Fluorescence.
