Welcome to the Plant Phenomics network - the online home for the global plant phenomics community and anyone interested in the emerging field of phenomics.
What is phenomics? In simple terms, phenomics is the science of systematically measuring where traits (qualitative and quantitative) interact with their environments. While efforts in plant improvement have greatly benefited from advances in genomics, studying the phenome (the result of the interaction between genes and the environment) of plants remains a major bottleneck. Recent improvements in sensors and imaging technologies, and data analysis are now making possible high-throughput studies of individual plant organs (root and shoot), whole plants, and plants in the field.
The Plant Phenomics network is geared to update the community about advances made in the fields of high-throughput data acquisition and analysis techniques.
We encourage members of this network to post their own resources. Follow @PlantPhenomics on Twitter.
