Reprogramming of host cells by microbial effectors
Steuerungsmechanismen mikrobieller Effektoren in Wirtszellen

Major research goal of SFB796 is to understand the molecular and structural basis of host-pathogen interactions. To this end microbial effectors and their host targets are studied in plant and mammalian systems.

The Collaborative Research Centre (SFB796) takes an integrated, comprehensive approach towards an understanding of the interactions between microbial pathogens and their host cells. The SFB brings together groups with a wide range of backgrounds but with the common aim to elucidate host--pathogen interactions on the molecular and cellular levels to gain novel insights into mechanisms of disease and to obtain knowledge about microbial strategies to hitchhike and/or reprogramme cellular processes. To this end microbial effectors and their host targets are studied in plant and mammalian systems. The research programme is divided into three sub-areas (A-C), all of which make use of core technologies provided in the central Z project.
