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: Prof. Dr. Hakenbeck, Regine
Address: Paul-Ehrlich-Str. 23
Institution: Universität Kaiserslautern , Abt. Mikrobiologie
City: Kaiserslautern Zip: D-67663
Country: Germany Phone: +49-63/2052353


Research Topics:
During the last decades, an unforeseen increase of antibiotic resistant bacterial pathogens is being observed worldwide. My department focuses on the following areas related to the evolution of penicillin resistance and the regulation of genetic transformation in a major human pathogen, Streptococcus pneumoniae • genomic diversity of S. pneumoniae and its comparison to closely related commensal streptococci • genome analysis of Streptococcus mitis • regulatory networks that are important for environmental adaptation and gene transfer • studies on the molecular mechanism that underlie penicillin resistance, using a unique collection of laboratory mutants and clinical isolates • new mechanisms of antibiotic resistance and the identification of new targets for antimicrobial agents


Organisms studied:
  • oral streptococci
  • Streptococcus mitis
  • Streptococcus pneumoniae


Special methods / technologies:
Microarray technology (oligonucleotide microarray of S. pneumoniae); Molecular genetics of S.
