Phenotyping for the Future
Purdue University graduate students are proud to host our second
Graduate Student Plant Science Symposium, a part of the DuPont
Pioneer Plant Science Symposia Series. This year our focus theme is
Phenotyping for the Future.
Phenotyping has the potential to transform the field of
agriculture through the mechanization of management parameters and
of physiological measurements in order to link the genetics of a
plant to their phenotypic expression in different environments and
under varying stresses. Although the phenotyping research and
technology in the US is rapidly advancing, scientists still face the
challenge of scaling up and down their research. In order to
maximize the impact of research, the trends found in detailed
molecular mapping need to persist and be recognizable on a whole
plant basis both in controlled greenhouse experiments and in highly
variable field scale studies. Often, plant scientists find their
research confined within their specific focus, but the multi-scaled
nature of phenotyping necessitates open dialogue and collaboration
so that each of their contributions can reach its full potential.
The goal of our symposium is to highlight advances in
phenoptyping at the molecular, greenhouse, and field scales and
discuss how technology can be translated from one scale to another.
This symposium will also be available via webinar.
