Andrew McArthur
Associate 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 (CARD.mcmaster.ca) and are associated with the Canadian Anti-Infective Innovation Network (CAIN-amr.ca), International Genomic Epidemiology Application Ontology Consortium (GenEpio.org), and Integrated Rapid Infectious Disease Analysis Platform (IRIDA.ca). 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.
