The characterization of primeval galaxies is a key question of modern astrophysics. Optical surveys are exquisite tools to search for galaxies in the Epoch of Reionization (EoR). Their interstellar medium can be probed via spectroscopy, in particular by exploiting the unprecedented capabilities of ALMA. Observations can be combined with detailed models to achieve a solid theoretical understanding. We shallpresent cosmological zoom-in simulations of galaxies in the EoR, that follow their hydrodynamical, chemical, and radiative evolution. By computing line/continuum emission, we compare our models to the most recent observations. This allows us to draw novel conclusions on the study of primeval galaxies.
