Dr. Reiss’s research activities include statistical modeling of transcript and protein level data, detection and analysis of DNA and protein sequence motifs, and integration of disparate biological data types for the gathering of system-wide insights. He has integrated models of protein-protein interaction data with the detection of protein sequence motifs, microarray data and different types of interaction networks (protein-protein, protein-DNA, metabolic, etc.) with the detection of DNA sequence motifs, and protein- and mRNA expression levels. His studies currently focus on the systems biology of Halobacterium NRC-1, and is directed toward modeling its global gene regulatory network.
