Nastassia Gobet finished her Bachelor in biochemistry at the University of Geneva in 2016. She obtained her master in Molecular Life Science with a specialization in bioinformatics. She did her first-step project in Winship Herr’s lab where she searched for mutations in HCF-1 associated with cancer using RNA-sequencing data from public database, under the supervision of Viviane Praz. For her master project, she worked on a novel method to measure instability of disease-causing trinucleotide repeats under the supervision of Vincent Dion. In June 2018, she started a PHD between Vital-IT group and Paul Franken’s lab where she is studying sleep regulation using a systems bioinformatics approach.
