About the Doxey Lab

The Doxey lab is a bioinformatics / computational biology research lab at the University of Waterloo.

We are located within the Department of Biology, with cross-affiliations to the Cheriton School of Computer Science.

Lab members include undergraduate and graduate students, postdocs, and research associates, with expertise in bioinformatics, genomics, molecular biology, and microbiology.


Our Research

Our general theme is bioinformatic prediction and experimental characterization of novel protein families and functions. We explore uncharacterized genomes to discover new genes/proteins/pathways, with an emphasis on novel virulence factors from bacterial pathogens. We use a variety computational (comparative (meta)genomics, phylogenetics, data-mining, and structural bioinformatics) and experimental (protein biochemistry and structural biology) approaches.
