Our research

We use information technology and genetic methods in our research, and we build and operate research infrastructures in support of improved knowledge of the diversity of life, the natural environment and the planet where we live.

The unit is responsible for supporting the molecularly oriented research projects at the musem and hosts a laboratory for DNA sequencing and a laboratory for the study of highly degraded DNA.

The unit also hosts the Centre for Genetic Identification (CGI), which offers other government agencies gene-based identification services and participates in the DNA barcoding of the Swedish flora and fauna (SweBOL).

The unit leads the museum's efforts to implement a common information system for the collections (the IRIS project) and presents information about our biological diversity to the general public in “Naturforskaren.se”. The unit also coordinates the museum's contributions to the DINA project, and hosts the Swedish node of GBIF.

Ancient DNA analyses

DNA analyses on ancient samples that often are many thousands of years old.

The software we develop for Bayesian inferences of evolutionary trees - phylogenies - is widely used in medicine and biology.

Our research shows that there are significantly more insect species in Sweden than previously thought.

We teach robots to identify insects, so that they can help experts with routine identifications.

We sequence genomes to understand how gall wasps evolved the ability to induce galls, and to identify what genes are involved.
