Anthony P. Fejes

If you know who I am, you might know me because you’ve followed my conference blogging, or you’re aware that I was a co-founder and the CSO of Zymeworks Inc (a successful Vancouver based biotechnology company) from 2003 to 2006, perhaps you’ve used some of my code for Chip-Seq (FindPeaks), or followed me on twitter.  If it’s not that, you’re probably related to me, or know me because I’m a moderator in the bioinformatics subreddit.

I’ve just started working at a startup in South San Francisco, called Tenaya Therapeutics, where I’m a Senior Scientist and Head of Bioinformatics.

  1. Hi Naomi,

    Thanks for the kind comments! I have already been warned about the cake consumption issues – although I have to say it’s the “Danishes” that have me worried, as you just can’t get pastries that good here in Canada. I’ll clearly have to take up more energetic hobbies if I hope to stay reasonably thin.

    Unfortunately, I don’t expect to be at AGBT this year. I haven’t discussed it with the CLC guys yet, but unless it fits in with their plans, I just don’t see it happening.

    As for my sister in law spoiling the surprise, I’m not too upset. I heard she was pretty excited about trying to get a CLC bio t-shirt, and I suspect she already thought all of the CLC bio crew would have known. (=

    And finally, to subscribe to the blog, you can either look for the RSS feed link on the front page, or you can follow me on twitter, as I usually post new blog items there.

    I hope we do get the chance to meet up – undoubtedly at some point we’ll meet at a conference (=

  2. Yes, I am in Denmark now, but there hasn’t been any disruption in my email. On the other hand, I still don’t have internet access outside of work yet, so I’m a bit slow replying to people at the moment. MSN will have to wait till I’m online in the evenings – and yes, Denmark *is* 9 hours ahead of Vancouver, so if you’re expecting me online during Vancouver’s time zone, you might be somewhat disappointed!

    • Seems highly unlikely – Fejes is a relatively common Hungarian last name, and I’m not aware of any Emeric Fejes’ in my family. Of course, if you go back far enough, it’s entirely possible we’re related, but it’s not going to be a close relation by any stretch.
