Here you will find information about Research groups in the PathoGenoMics fields from the ERA-NET partner countries (Austria, Finland, France, Hungary, Israel, Latvia, Portugal, Slovenia and Spain).
This information is supposed to support cooperation between researchers from different European countries
and thus enhance the development of a European Research Area for PathoGenoMics .


The following information is available and can be searched for:

  • researcher names
  • Institution of the respective researcher, city and country of his/her institution
  • Contact data of the researcher (address, phone, email)
  • Research topics and studied microorganisms of the researcher
  • Special techniques applied by the researcher
  • Potential cooperation topics suggested by the researcher

Research Topics:
Legionellae are intracellular parasites that use eukaryotic cells as a replication niche and to hide from the immune system. We use the model intracellular parasite Legionella pneumophila, a major bacterial pathogen, different in vitro and in vivo infection systems and a comparative and functional genomics approach, to decipher how Legionella subverts host cell physiological pathways to survive and proliferate within protozoa, their natural hosts, or human alveolar macrophages, during disease. Furthermore we apply comparative genomics (whole genome comparisons and DNA-arrays) to Legionellea with different pathogenic potential for humans to better understand diversity within this genus and its relation to virulence.


Organisms studied:
  • Legionella pneumophila


Special methods / technologies:
Sequencing, Microarrays, Bioinformatics, Molecular Biology
