Advanced Phenomics Curricula for Crop Research Professionals

As part of Purdue Moves, a team of Purdue faculty in plant sciences is developing phenomics curricula around the activities and resources at the Indiana Corn and Soybean Innovation Center. The curricula will address the gap of limited educational opportunities available to professionals and students in the emerging field of crop phenomics.


Data-driven approach

Crop phenomics merges science and engineering into an intensely data-driven approach in agriculture that is a fast-growing area of resource investment.


Educational opportunities

Limited educational opportunities exist for professionals and students to learn about phenomic approaches.


Wide array of curriculua

Purdue Agronomy and ABE are addressing this by developing a wide array of curricula for teaching and Extension at Purdue, with a module-based workshop.
