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

The Collaborative Research Centre (SFB796) took an integrated, comprehensive approach towards an understanding of the interactions between microbial pathogens and their host cells. The SFB brought 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 were studied in plant and mammalian systems. The research programme was divided into three sub-areas (A-C), all of which make use of core technologies provided in the central Z project.
