 Collection and Research Management


Corema is developed by Compositae AS (Ltd) and distributed in cooperation with Digital Forvaltning AS (Norway) and Botanical Software Ltd (UK). The first version was created for the Natural History Museum, University of Oslo (Norway) and released in 2009. The primary target was collections of DNA-material, but the system supports most types of biological collections and material. The data model and program code of Corema is also used by IrisBG, a software package specifically adapted for botanical gardens.
