Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Bacteria
  • Enzyme
  • Gene

His primary areas of investigation include Microbiology, Ribosomal RNA, Temperature gradient gel electrophoresis, Bacteria and Rumen. His research integrates issues of Lactobacillus, Animal feed, DNA and Polymerase chain reaction in his study of Microbiology. His work carried out in the field of Ribosomal RNA brings together such families of science as 16S ribosomal RNA, Phylogenetic tree, Real-time polymerase chain reaction, GenBank and Bacterial phyla.

Zhongtang Yu interconnects DNA profiling, Gel electrophoresis and Hypervariable region in the investigation of issues within Temperature gradient gel electrophoresis. His Bacteria study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Fibrobacter succinogenes, Fermentation, Permissive and Propionate. He's looking at Rumen as part of his Biochemistry and Food science and Rumen study.

His most cited work include:

  • Improved extraction of PCR-quality community DNA from digesta and fecal samples. (995 citations)
  • Comparisons of different hypervariable regions of rrs genes for use in fingerprinting of microbial communities by PCR-denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis. (425 citations)
  • Intestinal microbiome of poultry and its interaction with host and diet. (310 citations)

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

Zhongtang Yu spends much of his time researching Rumen, Microbiology, Food science, Fermentation and Bacteria. Rumen is the subject of his research, which falls under Biochemistry. The Microbiology study combines topics in areas such as Firmicutes, Ribosomal RNA, Lactobacillus, Polymerase chain reaction and Metagenomics.

In general Food science, his work in Fibrobacter succinogenes is often linked to Quillaja linking many areas of study. He has included themes like Nitrate, Botany and Fatty acid in his Fermentation study. His Bacteria research integrates issues from Biodegradation and Resin acid.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Rumen (36.11%)
  • Microbiology (29.63%)
  • Food science (26.39%)

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

  • Rumen (36.11%)
  • Animal science (14.81%)
  • Dry matter (7.41%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Rumen, Animal science, Dry matter, Food science and Fermentation. His Rumen research incorporates elements of Prevotella, Digestion, Ciliate and Propionate. His Animal science study incorporates themes from Ruminant, Feed conversion ratio, Inoculation and Ruminococcus.

The various areas that Zhongtang Yu examines in his Feed conversion ratio study include Succinivibrionaceae and 16S ribosomal RNA, Bacteria. His work on Distillers grains as part of his general Food science study is frequently connected to Sample collection, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science. His Fermentation research is included under the broader classification of Biochemistry.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Green tea extract prevents obesity in male mice by alleviating gut dysbiosis in association with improved intestinal barrier function that limits endotoxin translocation and adipose inflammation. (31 citations)
  • Invited review: Nitrogen in ruminant nutrition: A review of measurement techniques. (30 citations)
  • Dietary Bioactive Lipid Compounds Rich in Menthol Alter Interactions Among Members of Ruminal Microbiota in Sheep. (12 citations)

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

  • Bacteria
  • Enzyme
  • Gene

Zhongtang Yu mainly investigates Rumen, Food science, Fermentation, Green tea extract and Digestion. His study of Fibrobacter succinogenes is a part of Rumen. His Food science research incorporates themes from Sulfate-reducing bacteria, Methanogenesis, Nitrate and Sodium nitrate.

Biochemistry covers Zhongtang Yu research in Fermentation. The study incorporates disciplines such as Gut flora, Chromosomal translocation, Inflammation, TLR4 and Pharmacology in addition to Green tea extract. In his study, Urea, Animal nutrition and Manure is inextricably linked to Animal science, which falls within the broad field of Digestion.
