NeMys is a generic online species information system. It acts as a digital platform, storing all kinds of information on biological taxa. Storing data on morphology, biogeography, taxonomy, literature, pictures, collections and molecular aspects in one single dataset creates a large group of possible end users and allows data analysis and comparison for a specific taxonomic group from a variety of approaches. The generic architecture is reflected by the variety of databases available through this system: plants, animals (vertebrates and invertebrates).
The entire global species information system was developed at the Marine Biology Research Group, primarily focusing on marine free-living Nematoda.
