Scientific collection-based taxonomy and biosystematics (NatSciCol)

The NatSciCol research group promotes and enhances collection-based research at the Arctic University Museum of Norway. We employ technological and methodological advances that increase our ability to obtain data from specimens. We enable efficient curation and preservation, and improved accessibility of the museum collections to both the research community and the public.
