Research is one of the technical skills available in System Shock 2. By researching Annelid artifacts, the player can unlock the use of new weapons and Implants, and increase damage against annelid enemies. Many objects have a minimum level of Research skill necessary to research them. Typically, researching objects requires one or more chemicals. The LabAssistant™ Implant raises the player's Research stat by 1.
