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

Name: Ao. Univ. Prof. Dr. Koraimann, Günther
Address: Universitätsplatz 2
Institution: Institut für Molekulare Biowissenschaften (IMB - Bereich Mikrobiologie) – Universität Graz
City: Graz Zip: A-8010
Country: Austria Phone: +43 316 380 5626


Research Topics:
Type IV secretion systems (TFSS) are envelope spanning macromolecular transport systems used by a wide variety of bacterial pathogens. By analysing the molecular architecture and the components of the TFSS in the DNA transfer system encoded by plasmid R1 we aim to understand general principles common to all TFSS. Furthermore, we wish to understand the regulation of genes required for TFSS assembly and the impact of this envelope structure on the bacterial host cell.


Organisms studied:
  • Agrobacterium tumefaciens
  • E. coli


Special methods / technologies:
RNA analyses, qRT PCR, Fluorescence microscopy, promoter analysis by Primer extension and gene fusions, EMSA and DNA footprinting
