Categories of phenotyping infrastructure
EMPHASIS at providing phenotyping infrastructure for the improvement of plant performance under a changing climate which requires the use of different categories of infrastructure, which can and should be combined together with a coordinated infrastructure for storing and analyzing data.
The platform categories include:
Phenotyping platforms in (semi-)controlled conditions for high resolution and high throughput phenomics
Smart/ Intensive field experimental sites for high throughput phenomics
Translational, coordinated network of field experiments with lean, efficient phenotyping close to practical breeding setups
Modelling platforms for testing existing or virtual combinations of alleles in a variety of climatic scenarios and management practices
