International Plant Phenotyping Network
International Plant Phenotyping Network is an association representing the major plant phenotyping centers.
IPPN aims to provide all relevant information about plant phenotyping. The goal is to increase the visibility and impact of plant phenotyping and enable cooperation by fostering communication between stakeholders in academia, industry, government, and the general public. Through workshops and symposia, IPPN seeks to establish different working groups and distribute all relevant information about plant phenotyping in a web-based platform.
IPPN was highly successful in recent years, providing an informal basis of discussion between groups interested in plant phenotyping and organizing International Plant Phenotyping Symposia (Canberra 2009, Jülich 2011, Chennai 2014). This new incarnation of IPPN is the formal manifestation of our aim to integrate the plant phenotyping community to consolidate innovative plant phenotyping approaches to target relevant traits, assess quantitatively key processes, understand the dynamic interactions between genetic and biochemical processes, and identify plant-environment interactions.
