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. Fuchs, Thilo M.
Address: Weihenstephaner Berg 3
Institution: Techn. Universität München, Zentralinstitut für Ernährung u. Lebensmittelforschung, Abt. Mikrobiologie
City: Freising Zip: D-85354

Research Topics:
Our research focus is the molecular mechanisms by which the bacterial, foodborne pathogens Salmonella typhimurium, Listeria monocytogenes and Yersinia enterocolitica successfully adapt to their intracellular and extracellular environment.


Organisms studied:
  • E. coli
  • Salmonella enterica sv. Typhimurium
  • Yersinia enterocolitica


Special methods / technologies:
Cell culture systems for Listeria and Salmonella infection, one-step gene deletion method, expression profiling by the luciferase reporter system Mutant libraries of L. monocytogenes (1,700 mutants), Y. enterocolitica (5,700), S. typhimurium (10,000)


Suggestions for potential research cooperations:
We are interested in providing our mutant libraries for research purposes.
The Yersinia library consists of mutants with random chromosomal insertions of the lux-reporter genes, thus allowing to identify differentially regulated promoters under varyin
