Each December, the Department of Biology and the Biology Graduate Student Association host a holiday door decorating contest to celebrate the festive season. Biology staff and students judged the eight doors based on the creativity, visual appeal and originality of each lab’s decorations.
The Rooney lab defended their title and beat seven other labs to win the 2017 Holiday Hallway competition for the second year in a row. The Hall and Hug labs came in second and third place respectively.

The Biology Graduate Student Association (BGSA) held their first annual pumpkin carving contest yesterday in which graduate students were tasked with designing and carving a Halloween pumpkin in less than an hour.
For one week in September, graduate students in the Collaborative Water Program (CWP) step outside of the classroom and gain hands-on learning experience from local water experts and community members in the Grand River Watershed.
Biologists from the University of Waterloo, University of British Columbia and Health Canada have discovered hundreds of bacterial species equipped with a new and powerful type of flagella covered in enzymes.
With sea surface temperatures in the North Atlantic Ocean already climbing, scientists are predicting Atlantic Canada’s $400 million salmon aquaculture industry could be wiped out within the next 25 years.
Biologists at the University of Waterloo find the unique microbial communities living on our feet can be used to predict who we live with.
The study, published this month in mSystems, combined high-throughput sequencing and artificial intelligence to see what the microbiome living on the skin of cohabiting couples can tell us about the microbial “fingerprints” that we leave on our loved ones.
