We offer facilities to measure phenotypic properties in plants to establish the necessary associations between genotype and phenotype. Finding these associations is critical to the development of novel adaptive crops and cropping systems required for future food production, food security and ecological sustainability.
We provide a versatile modular platform to enable the scientific community and companies to carry out accurate high-throughput phenotyping: studies of plant performance in relation to relevant biotic and abiotic factors across a range of scales.
It seems so logical: each plant carries chloroplasts that contribute to the optimum growth and development of the plant. At least that is what has always been assumed. However, this has turned out to be false, as demonstrated by researchers at Wageningen University & Research (WUR) in a scientific publication published today in Nature Plants.
The International Plant Phenotyping Network (IPPN) is organising the 6th International Plant Phenotyping Symposium from 22-26 October, 2019 in Nanjing, China. Rick van de Zedde and René Klein Lankhorst (both from Wageningen University & Research) will present plant phenotyping research in the Netherlands.
Currently there are no other upcoming events.
