On to Omicia!

I’ve dropped a few hints about where I’m headed, recently.  I left a pretty awesome lab at the CMMT last week to join a small company that most people have probably never heard of.  Yes, I still owe the Kobor Lab a final blog post, and have 2 publications in preparation going at the moment, so I guess I haven’t completely left yet, but as of tomorrow morning, I’ll be starting my new role with Omicia.  They’re a small company in the Bay Area, but they have a disproportionate passion for their work and some pretty cool ideas and connections. (Shoutout to the Yandell lab.  Yes, I’d like a few VAAST stickers, but I’m hoping to meet @zevkronenberg in person to ask for them one day…)

For the moment, I’m still in Vancouver, where I’ll stay until we find a place to live in the Oakland Area, but things are officially in motion.

Ironically, it’s been a long road to get here, since I first met up with Omicia about 3 years ago.  Somehow, it just took a long time for the stars to align… but here we are, and the real journey is about to begin.

  1. This is great news, Anthony. I hope you’ll tweet and blog your new adventure. Omicia seems to have an already pretty awesome product, and I’m curious to hear what it will become!

    • Thanks Nicolas,

      I definitely plan to continue – or rather restart – blogging and twittering, but I’ll wait to see how things play out. There’s a lot of room for NGS discussions in industry, but I don’t want to jump the gun. (-:
