Build any buildings that will advance your Research points. You need Research points to investigate Alien artifacts found in Moonhenge, as well as to research other technologies to advance the game.
Research then takes place in Research Centers, and an alert will notify you of when it has been completed. You can research to improve the abilities of Kreep mining in the Kreep Shaft for example. See the Tech List below.
You can monitor your number of Research points in the game by touching on the Resource Monitor on the Game Interface, at the bottom left of the screen, go to All, then Research and swipe right.
