Four scientists who work at WTCHG, or who did until recently, have been listed by Thomson Reuters as ‘highly cited researchers’. They are the Director, Peter Donnelly, Cecilia Lindgren, Mark McCarthy and Jonathan Marchini.
Two hundred authors in the field of molecular biology and genetics are on the list. They represent the top 1 per cent most cited for their subject field and year of publication between 2002 and 2012. ‘The listings of Highly Cited Researchers feature authors whose published work in their specialty areas has consistently been judged by peers to be of particular significance and utility’, says Thomson Reuters.
