The article studies the inferring of molecular-level regulation, with frequent focus on transcriptional regulatory networks. The model archaeon Halobacterium NRC-I was used to show that, at least for a small genome, it is possible to determine a sizable portion of the transcriptional regulatory network from microarrays without much prior knowledge.
