Andrew McArthur
Professor, Biochemistry & Biomedical Sciences

The McArthur laboratory’s research program is rooted in bioinformatics, functional genomics, and computational biology, with a focus on genomic surveillance of antimicrobial resistance. We lead the Comprehensive Antibiotic Resistance Database ( and are associated with the Canadian Anti-Infective Innovation Network (, International Genomic Epidemiology Application Ontology Consortium (, and Integrated Rapid Infectious Disease Analysis Platform ( Our work spans complex informatics approaches to the functional genomics of microbial drug resistance, development of biological databases, next-generation sequencing for genome assembly and molecular epidemiology, automated literature curation approaches, and controlled vocabularies for biological knowledge integration.
