Multi-scale Plant Phenomics

Multi-scale Plant Phenomics


With recent advancements in genotyping, phenotyping is now a bottleneck in development of several research fields in plant science (e.g. agricultural science, developmental and evolutionary biology). Particularly, morphological properties are the most important information but hardest to treat in plant phenotyping. In this workshop, we introduce several examples developing methods to quantify the morphological traits of plants and combining them with genomic, developmental, and physiological information.
