Bottlenecks in our ability to collect accurate, high-resolution, phenotype data on crop plants limit how efficiently we can combine plant characteristics with genomic information for gene discovery and cultivar development. The Institute for Plant Sciences at Purdue University is working with researchers across the University to develop field-based and controlled environment phenotyping tools and techniques based on novel sensors and sensor platforms and sophisticated image and data analysis methods to quantify variation in shoot- and root-based traits. Advanced sensing technologies are providing high-throughput measurements to support basic research in plant biology and applied research in agronomy, animal science, entomology, forestry, horticulture, plant pathology, and weed science. In today’s presentation, we'll briefly introduce Purdue's high-throughput phenotyping capacities in controlled and field environments and then provide a showcase of diverse research projects that utilize these advanced plant research platforms.
