Recent advances in controlled environment phenotyping and lab-to-field translation (Controlled Environment Plant Phenotyping Working Group – CePPG Workshop)
Summary: Analyzing the phenotypes of plants growing under controlled environmental conditions is a requirement if one would like to investigate molecular-physiological mechanisms and biological processes of plant performance at the cellular, organ, whole plant, and canopy level. Use of controlled environments also enables repeated and independent testing of experimental outcomes, a fundamental requirement in research. Climate controlled plant cultivation facilities can furthermore be used to simulate future environmental scenarios to which plants need to be adapted to in order to achieve the required high performance and strong resilience. However, in the past, only little attention was paid to the fact that plants grown under usual controlled conditions can be phenotypically very different from those in the field. This workshop will explore recent advances to apply controlled conditions in such a way that experiments are repeatable and relevant to present and future field conditions.

Measuring photosynthesis: bridging the gap between high and low throughput (WUR)
Summary: Screening large numbers of plants via high throughput phenotyping is an excellent method to study phenotypic and genetic variation. Yet, photosynthesis is difficult to characterize in high throughput phenotyping, as it is invisible and strongly environmentally dependent. Many methods to quantify photosynthesis and processes related to it exist, but currently only some of these can be used for ‘snapshot’ measurements. This workshop aims to list methods available to us for characterizing photosynthesis at the leaf, plant or stand level, and to find ways to bridge the gap between ‘slow and accurate’ and ‘quick and dirty’.
The workshop is intended as an inventory of the various methods used to quantify traits related to photosynthesis, with an emphasis on implementing these methods in high-throughput plant phenotyping. Methods will be compared on their advantages and shortcomings with regards to accuracy and speed.
We will start off the workshop by a series of short (10 min) talks on some key methods, including: i) chlorophyll fluorescence imaging, ii) photosynthetic gas exchange, iii) hyperspectral imaging, iv) stomatal conductance phenotyping (including but not limited to thermography), and v) absorbance change imaging. Then, participants are split into several groups for round-table discussions, where they are asked to list and discuss advantages and disadvantages for given methods. Finally, results from the different groups will be brought together in one big overview, and discussed. A final deliverable of the workshop could be a large poster that presents an overview of the status quo and future directions, which could be presented at the main symposium in the days after the workshop.
