Phenotyping facilities

NPEC-facilities 6 1 5 2 4 3

NPEC is one integrated national facility. Our phenotyping facilities are yet being developed and constructed and will be housed across two locations close to each other: Wageningen and Utrecht.

1. ECOtron

In the precision mesocosm–level ECOtron plant-plant and plant-microbe interactions both above- and belowground will be studied, at a level of cm to m. The ECOtron will be located at Utrecht University.

2. Plant-Microbe Interactions phenotyping

The Plant-Microbe Interactions phenotyping facility will be used for high throughput research on plant-microbe interactions, from the molecular level up to plant organ level. This facility will be located at Utrecht University.

3. Multi-Environment climate chamber

The Multi-Environment climate chamber facility has been designed to study the molecular basis of plant responses to multiple environmental factors. This climate chamber will be housed at Utrecht University.

4. High-Throughput Phenotyping climate chamber

The High-Throughput Phenotyping climate chamber facility allows for automated, high-throughput screening of plant genotypes under highly controlled environmental conditions. This facility will be housed at Wageningen University & Research.

5. GreenHouse phenotyping

In the GreenHouse phenotyping facility, integrated whole-plant phenotyping will be carried out, testing numerous crops, from seedling to harvest. This facility will be housed at Wageningen University & Research.

6. Open-Field phenotyping

The Open-Field phenotyping facility provides an outdoor mobile drone- and vehicle-based phenotyping system that can study individual plants in small plots or large fields. The system will be housed at Wageningen University & Research.
