Wellington Muchero

Wellington Muchero is a senior staff scientist and geneticist in the Biosciences Division. He leads discovery projects utilizing genome-wide association mapping studies, quantitative trait loci mapping, and functional validation of genes with wide-ranging functions in eukaryotes. He also leads research activities that seek to computationally predict and functionally validate conserved protein domains that mediate immune signaling across highly divergent biological processes including plant-microbe interactions and cancer progression in humans.
