We present here the strategy of data integration for inference of genetic regulatory modules. First, we construct all possible combinations of regulators of genes using chromatin-immunoprecipitation(ChIP)-chip data. Second, hierarchical clustering method is employed to analyze mRNA expression profiles. Third, integration method is applied to both of the data. Finally, we construct a genetic regulatory module which is involved in the function of ribosomal protein synthesis.
