Eidogen s Bioinformatics Platform to Run on Versant Object Database

NEW YORK, Aug. 26 (GenomeWeb News) – Data management firm Versant said today that Eidogen of Pasadena, Calif., will embed the Versant VDS Object Database in its Target Informatics Platform, a structural and comparative proteomics software suite.

Derek Debe, co-founder and CEO of Eidogen, said the Versant object technology is better suited to biological data than relational approaches. “The complex connections encountered in biology are best expressed as direct references between objects, because that's what they really are,” said Debe in a statement.
