The Museum is working to share its vast collection and research data online with the research community.
The informatics group is building a digital infrastructure to share our vital biodiversity data freely online.
We are working with Museum colleagues, other academics and industrial partners to achieve this goal.
We are developing methods to digitise the Museum's 79 million specimens, a vital source of information about the natural world.
The informatics group led the creation of a new online journal platform that is changing the face of biodiversity publishing.
The team is part of a network facilitating the mobilisation, sharing, reuse and publication of biodiversity data.
We are helping policy makers shape the future of the natural world by improving their access to biodiversity data.
Our informaticians are creating a data portal to store, explore, visualise and analyse major museum data sets, launching in late 2014.
