Working Groups Description

      Working group 1: Phenotyping at the plant level

      WG1 is created to meet objective 1 and 4. WG1 will collect, discuss and evaluate information and novel developments in:

      - Sensors & image analysis
      - Plant physiology/pathology
      - Modelling plant growth and real time monitoring
      - Establishment of Good Phenotyping Practice (Experimental standards/protocols)
      - Environmental monitoring and simulation

       

      Working group 2: Phenotyping at the cell level

      WG2 is created to meet objective 2 and 4.WG2 will collect, discuss and evaluate information and novel developments in:

      - Metabolomics and flux analysis
      - Proteomics
      - Transcriptomics
      - Genomics

       

      Working group 3: Integration of phenotyping at plant and cell level and translation into good practices for applied end use

      WG3 is created to meet objective 3, 4 and 5.WG 3 will follow up the developments made in systems biology by integrating phenotyping on different levels and will collect the developments in translational research:

      - Data management & statistics
      - Integration of different omics technologies
      - Detecting early stress events in the field and green houses and adapting agricultural management (“speaking plant”)
      - Defining relevant traits for the transition from greenhouse to the field
      - Screening the parents and the offspring of breeding programs and different genetically modified plants
      - Screening the biodiversity of European gene bank collections
      - Inform and give policy advice to stakeholders
