"The venture capital firms that invested in Gaithersburg-based Viaken Systems purchased most of the company's assets earlier this month, forming a new company called VSA.

"VSA is a radical departure from where Viaken was," says Zoukis, who worked as a strategic consultant for Elliston. "It's a whole different business. ... This is about information management and knowledge-worker support.""

""We were in the process of getting our series C, [but] the market conditions really worsened dramatically for bioinformatics," Elliston says. "We just found the investing environment to be really difficult during that period.""

Bioinformatics will be at the core of biology in the 21st century. In fields ranging from structural biology to genomics to biomedical imaging, ready access to data and analytical tools are fundamentally changing the way investigators in the life sciences conduct research and approach problems. Complex, computationally intensive biological problems are now being addressed and promise to significantly advance our understanding of biology and medicine. No biological discipline will be unaffected by these technological breakthroughs.
