Jennifer Reed's research interests involved building, analyzing, and utilizing metabolic and regulatory models of organisms involved in bioremediation, biofuels, and pharmaceutical applications. Once developed these models can be used to evaluate the capabilities of different organisms from a network-based perspective and to identify ways in which genetic manipulations could enhance their productivity. She was also interested in developing computational methods for designing strains or cell lines with enhanced production yields of desired products. Models can also be used to identify potential metabolic or regulatory roadblocks that might be limiting production in developed strains.
