We use computational approaches to generate hypotheses about microbial networks and design experiments to test our understanding of these networks. Read More >>>
We develop computational approaches to predict how different genetic perturbations impact cellular production and growth rates. Read More >>>
We use systems biology approaches to study microbe-microbe and/or microbe-host interactions and develop models and approaches to predict metabolic fluxes and metabolic interactions in these complex systems. Read More >>>
Upcoming Conferences and Seminars
- ACS National Meeting in March
- 2016 Genomic Science Grantee Meeting in March
- NYU Abu Dhabi’s annual Genomics and Systems Biology Symposium in Feb
Welcome to Reed Laboratories!
Our group studies microbial metabolism and regulation using a combination of computational and experimental approaches. Overall, we use computational models to study biological systems, engineer cells, and expand our knowledge of the underlying mechanisms behind observed cellular behaviors.
