Welcome

MorphoMuseuM, also referred to as M3, is a peer reviewed, online journal that aims at enhancing accessibility to 3D models (surface, CT, MRI) of vertebrates, including models of type specimens, anatomy atlases, reconstruction of deformed or damaged specimens, and 3D datasets. It allows quick publication of quality 3D models of vertebrates by a double blind pair review process.
M3 comes along with a free software, ISE-MeshTools, which contains a set of tools for editing, positioning, deforming, labelling, measuring and rendering sets of 3D surfaces.
