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

Research Topics:
Avian mycoplasmas, generation of antigenic variation, pathogenicity factors, epizootiology, Mycoplasma agalactiae, hemagglutinins, DNA profiling, homologous recombination, recombination machinery, host response, change of gene expression profile upon infection.


Organisms studied:
  • Escherichia coli
  • Mastitis causing S. aureus
  • Mastitis causing S. uberis
  • Mycoplasma agalactiae


Special methods / technologies:
DNA profiling, promoter functional studies, development of molecular markers (SNP, microsatelites, RFLP), identification of candidate genes, mapping of QTL regions, research on genomic organisation


Suggestions for potential research cooperations:
Identification of molecular mechanisms involved in generation of antigenic variation in microorganisms (mainly avian mycoplasma), host-pathogen interaction in mastitis, genomic events (gene duplication, gene conversion, horizontal gene transfer) involved in pathogenicity and host specificity in mycoplasmas.
