Ebioinformatics has completed its merger with Empatheon and taken a new name, Entigen. The name is indicative of Ebioinformatics’ plan to expand beyond bioinformatics to go after new undisclosed markets using Empatheon’s data integration technology.
Entigen doesn’t mean anything and therefore doesn’t restrict the company to one area like the Ebioinformatics name does, said James Nelson, vice president of product marketing at Entigen.
“And it’s easier to say than Ebioinformatics,” he quipped. The Internet domain name, entigen.com, was also available.
