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: A.O.Univ.Prof.Dr. Wagner, Martin
Address: Veterinärplatz 1
Institution: Department for Veterinary Public Health
City: Wien Zip: A-1210
Country: Austria Phone: +43 1 25077 3524


Research Topics:
Epidemiology and virulence of milkborne Gram-positive pathogens (Listeria and Staphylococci) Food-dependent epidemiology and virulence expression in Campylobacter


Organisms studied:
  • Campylobacter spp.
  • Listeria spec.
  • Mycobacterium paratuberculosis
  • Staphylococcus spp.


Special methods / technologies:
Immunological and nucleic acids based detection and strain characterisation technology (cyclers, real time cyclers, PFGE machines, real-time PCR based microarrayer, sequencer, mass spectroscopy through the VETOMICS Center)


Suggestions for potential research cooperations:
We are especially interested in the elucidation of contamination cycles in food chains, prediction of hazards and their accumulation, and in the modelling of hazards throughout the chains. We would be interested in research on the dependency of virulence factors from food intrinsic and extrinsic factors, and the control of hazards through microbial association.
