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

Research Topics:
We are studying the biosynthetic pathway of the Cryptococcus neoformans capsule polysaccharides. We have been involved in the annotation of the C. neoformans genome and we have started a program of systematic deletion of gene involved in the biosynthesis of these polysaccharides This strains collection will be used to understand the influence of the capsule structure on the cryptococcosis pathophysiology and potentially to develop an anti-Cryptococcus vaccine, but also for more basic sciences oriented projects on different aspects of polysaccharides biosynthesis in eukaryotes (regulation of the nucleotide-sugars transport into vesicles, relationship between the splicing of some specific genes and capsule structure…). Indeed, C. neoformans can be considered for many aspects as a model for the study of polysaccharides biosynthesis in higher eukaryotes. We are also studying the genetics of biofilms formation by Candida. We are looking for genes involved in the formation of such strutures in Candida albicans and Candida glabrata


Organisms studied:
  • Candida albicans
  • Candida glabrata
  • Cryptococcus neoformans


Special methods / technologies:
molecular biology of pathogenic yeasts
