McMaster Bioinformatics Meet-Up
Anyone working or interested in bioinformatics at McMaster, from analysis to software development, is welcome to join us at The Phoenix on the 3rd Friday of most months at 4 pm for the McMaster Bioinformatics Meet-Up! Click below to join our next Meet-Up.
Human Microbiome Journal Club
Several members of the Farncombe Institute host the Human Microbiome Journal Club. They also host a weekly Microbiome Working Group on Tuesdays at 3:30 pm for open discussion of microbiome research in any organism by any interested researcher – see the online schedule.
Hosted by the Department of Biology, a Friday lunch to discuss all things biological data. Contact Dr. Ben Bolker for details.
Seminars, Work-in-Progress, Rounds
Seminars! Our favourites are in the Department of Biochemistry & Biomedical Sciences, Department of Biology, MacData Institute, and the Michael G. DeGroote Institute for Infectious Disease Research (IIDR).

McArthur Lab Meeting
The McArthur Lab has a group lab meeting most weeks in which we discuss our latest research progress. Thinking about joining the lab? Consider sitting in one of our meetings. Contact email@example.com for details.
CARD Curation Team
The Comprehensive Antibiotic Resistance Database (CARD) Curation team meets most weeks in which we discuss curation of antimicrobial resistance genes into the CARD, development of the Antibiotic Resistance Ontology, and algorithm development for the Resistance Gene Identifier. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org details.
Galaxy Users Group
The McArthur Lab increasing uses the Galaxy cloud computing environment for our bioinformatics analyses and Galaxy users throughout McMaster are welcome to attend our (somewhat sporadic!) Galaxy Users Group meeting. Contact email@example.com for details.
Mid-Term Recess Bioinformatics Session
Fall and Winter terms at McMaster each have a one week Mid-Term Recess during which there are no undergraduate classes. The McArthur Lab has started a new tradition of running a bioinformatics workshop or info session every Mid-Term Recess open to all students, trainees, staff, and faculty. We advertise to BBS and IIDR, but any are welcome. Topic, time slot, and location will be decided by level of interest:
- How BLAST searching and Pfam/HMM domain annotation work. Thursday, February 18, 2016 @ 10-11 am in MDCL 3022
