EuroPathoGenomics EPG

European Virtual Institute for Functional Genomics of Bacterial Pathogens

EPG is a network of excellence (NoE "EPG") for functional genomics of bacterial pathogens. It is a consortium of leading European research teams committed to working with each other and with others to establish the European research area as an area of excellence in research on infectious diseases caused by bacterial pathogens.
The major objective is to organise the mass of genomic information that has become available, regarding both microorganisms and their hosts, into schemes allowing one to decipher the cross talks between pathogens and commensals and their host cell and tissue targets. Importantly, the critical mass established attracts the interest and collaboration of leading laboratories in other related basic disciplines, heightening the potential for incisive multi-disciplinary accomplishments. Based on this strong research background, high level teaching is organised at both graduate and postdoctoral levels, both in national institutions, capitalising on the current "cutting edge" research, and in European courses and workshops that also attract scientists from non-EU countries. Exchange programmes are designed to facilitate international and multidisciplinary development.
