Nicolas Robine

Director, Computational Biology

Nicolas Robine joined the New York Genome Center in April 2012. He graduated from an Engineering school in Paris (ESIEE-Paris), with an Msc in Bioinformatics from Goteborg (Sweden) and obtained his PhD at the Institut Curie in Paris for his work on the analyses of meiotic double-strand breaks in yeast. He did a postdoc at the Sloan-Kettering Institute in New York in the lab of Eric Lai, working on the annotations of drosophila small RNA (microRNA and piRNA) within the modENCODE consortium. At the New York Genome Center, where his current position is Director, Computational Biology, he leads a group of bioinformatics scientists and analysts, with projects applied to cancer genomics (tumor-normal whole-genome analysis, liquid biopsy, tumor evolution) and functional genomics (RNASeq, single-cell and multi-modal genomics).
