Jens Nielsen on the list of the world´s most-cited scientists

Web of Science has just published its list of the world’s most-cited researchers. The list includes, for the third year in a row, MetaboGen co-founder Jens Nielsen in the field of biology and biochemistry.

Nielsen’s research group has made significant progress in rearranging the metabolism of yeast cells to make them produce chemical components for use in biofuels. The group is also employing the same principles in its work on medical applications. This involves understanding how diseases like diabetes, cancer and liver disease work and then getting genetically modified yeast or human cells to produce protein drugs that can treat the diseases.
