DeCode Genetics announced last week that Jean-Francois Formela has resigned from its board of directors.
Formela, a senior partner at Atlas Venture, has served on DeCode's board since the formation of the company in 1996. He resigned to devote his time to a new Atlas fund, the company said.
Atlas was among a group of venture firms that helped finance DeCode's start.
