The research interests of Professor Basilis Gidas the past eight years have been in transcriptional regulatory networks, signal transduction pathways,and ab initio protein folding, using Bayesian statistics and Chomsky type grammars. The work emphasizes: Myc regulatory networks and pathways in cell-growth, cell proliferation, and apoptosis, using Microarray and ChIp-chip data, and cross-species comparison; finding phosphorylation site motifs via tandem mass spectrometry, and structural information of kinases and substrates; ab initio protein folding using compositional/syntactic representations of proteins.
Basilis Gidas received his B.Sc. from the National Technical University of Athens Greece in 1965. He has an M.A. degree in Mathematics, M.S. degree in Physics, and Ph.D. degree in Mathematical Physics (1970), all from the University of Michigan. He is an elected Fellow of the Institute of Mathematical Statistics. Before he joined the Faculty at Brown in 1984, he held appointments at Rockefeller University and the Institute for Advanced Studies (Princeton). In the past, he has made contributions in Mathematical Physics (quantum field theory) and in partial differential equations/differential geometry. Since 1982 he has worked in Computer Vision, Speech Recognition, Nonparametric Statistics, and, the past eight years, in Computational Molecular Biology. He has served on the National Research Council Advisory Panel for "Spatial Statistics and Image Processing", and is on the editorial board of the International Journal of Imaging Science and Technology.
