The Doxey Lab is a bioinformatics / computational biology research lab, located in the Department of Biology, University of Waterloo.

Our focus is on genome analysis, molecular evolution, and protein structural bioinformatics. A long-term goal is to combine these above areas in computational methods to predict and design biological function.

We collaborate closely with a number of labs from Waterloo and beyond.

Current Openings

There are opportunities for graduate students and potential BIOL 499 students.

For prospective students, either bioinformatics/programming or molecular wet-lab experience is strongly recommended. Biology/biochemistry, engineering and computer science students are welcome!
