Next Generation Plant Phenotyping Technologies
Tuesday, May 16, 8:30 am – 12:00 pm, 146 Stocking Hall in Ithaca
- Plant phenotyping is a rapidly emerging multidisciplinary research area.
- It has become ever more urgent to close the gap between genotype and phenotype for improving critical crop traits for addressing food and nutritional security.
- This mini-symposium will feature talks from leading researchers integrating state-of-the-art high-throughput phenotyping technologies for capturing plant traits under controlled and field environments.
