    We have developed a graph-based data model called the Hypernode Model whose single data structure is the hypernode, a directed graph whose nodes may themselves reference further directed graphs. A prototype database system supporting this model is being developed at London University as part of a project whose aims are threefold: (i) to ascertain the expressiveness and flexibility of the hypernode model, (ii) to experiment with various querying paradigms for this model, and (iii) to investigate the suitability of the directed graph as a data structure supported throughout all levels of the implementation. The purpose of this paper is to report upon our findings to date.
