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: Dr. Borovok, Ilya
Institution: Department of Molecular Microbiology and Biotechnology, George S.Wise Faculty of Life Sciences, Tel Aviv University, Ramat Aviv
City: Tel Aviv Zip: 69978
Country: Israel Phone: +972 3 640 7504
    Fax: +972 3 642 2245


Research Topics:
KEYWORDS: Ribonucleotide (ribonucleoside) reductase; gene regulation; regulatory proteins; riboswitch (riboswitches), genome analysis.


Organisms studied:
  • corynebacterium
  • Listeria spec.
  • Mycobacterium spec.
  • Staphylococcus spp.
  • Streptomyces spp.


Special methods / technologies:
RT-PCR and 'derivative' assays on its basis (qRT-PCT etc); TRACE analysis of transcription start sites in bacteria; electrophoretic mobility shift assay (EMSA); genome analysis (general blast algorithms, protein domain/motif analysis etc); phylogeny methods (Clustal, MEGA and TreeView tools etc).


Suggestions for potential research cooperations:
I would be happy to be involved in any 'fine' (detailed) analyses and annotations of bacterial genomes (with focusing on 'classic' regulatory features of genes and novel regulatory elements including Riboswitches or RNA-sensors).
