Current and future applications of phenotyping for plant breeding
Plants develop by a complex interaction of genotypes with the environments which determines their structure and function and thus essential performance parameters such as yield, productivity or efficient use of resources.
To understand these fundamental processes we need to quantitatively assess the phenotype and generate a link to the genotype in order to understand the genetic basis.
In this context, plant phenotyping is becoming a central field of research and application in academia and industry providing a nourishing ground for the development of new phenotyping infrastructure for applications under controlled and field conditions, being increasingly important for the application of phenotyping technologies for crop improvement.
Specifically the development and application of methodological tools for breeding plays an essential role.
With this meeting we aim to provide
