Nico Robine, PhD

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). At the New York Genome Center, where his current position is Director, Computational Biology, he developed and managed the RNA-Seq data analysis pipelines and supervised a group of scientists and analysts, with projects applied to cancer genomics, auto-immune diseases, neurobiology, but also fundamental biology, as well de-novo assembly, and various novel sequencing technologies.
