Richard Green

Bioinformatics Analyst III

Richard (Rich) began his career as an intern at Barlow Scientific, a small biotech company in Olympia, Washington. In 1998 he joined the molecular cloning group under the HTSC (High Throughput Sequencing Center) in UW’s Department of Molecular Biotechnology run by Dr. Leroy Hood. During Rich's time there the lab sequenced the rice genome and contributed to others (human, dog, and soybean). After completing his Masters in Bioinformatics in Boston he returned to Seattle and joined the University of Washington Medical Center and worked in Bioinformatics and Proteomics for Dr. Jay Heinecke until 2009 when he joined the department of Microbiology as a Computational Biologist. From 2015-2019 Rich worked with Dr. Michael Gale Jr.  in the department of Immunology and Center for Innate Immunity and Immune Disease (CIIID) managing his Immuno-informatics core. Rich is interested in applying computational methods to solve biological problems. He has been an active research participant in the bioscience field for the last twenty years coauthoring over thirty scientific papers.
