He has been an exponent of the Prolog computer language and logic programming in general. In recent years, he has worked on developing a DNA-based computer. His research group produced one capable of diagnosing cancer in cells and releasing drug molecules in response. In the 2004 "Scientific American 50", he was named Research Leader in Nanotechnology. In 2007, he led a team in his lab in the Biological Chemistry, and Computer Sciences and Applied Mathematics Departments at the Weizmann Institute of Science that developed a new disease model to explain the progression of Huntington's Disease and similar trinucleotide repeat disorders.
