DPPN Workshop on Plant Phenotyping

Registration deadline: February 14, 2014

The German Plant Phenotyping Network (DPPN) will be hosting a workshop on Plant Phenotyping within the PLANT 2030 Status Seminar 2014 in Potsdam. The DPPN is a national network of the Research Center Jülich (coordination), the Leibniz Institute of Plant Genetics and Crop Plant Research Gatersleben and Helmholtz Zentrum München with the main target of the development of basically non-invasive new technologies to be applied for plant research and breeding (www.dppn.de).


The aim of the workshop is to look at phenotyping approaches in the context of DPPN and to foster the dialogue between the platform operators and user community.

Following questions will be addressed:

  • What are the aims of DPPN?
  • What are the intentions of the potential user community? What types of collaborations are requested between users and DPPN?
  • What extensions are requested by users?


  • Presentation of the high throughput systems planned for shoot and root phenotyping in the context of DPPN
  • Information on technologies, sensors, image analysis and automation technologies for plant phenotyping
  • Use of magnetic resonance imaging approaches for phenotyping of 3D root structure
  • Plant Phenotyping in the field
  • Approaches for measuring photosynthesis and water status of plants
  • Phenotyping of plant-pathogen-interactions (Plant Pathology)
  • Bioinformatic approaches / analysis of large data sets (Establishment of standardized databases for phenotypic data)
  • Seed Phenotyping: Methods for the analysis and selection of homogeneous seed material; standardization of seed sowing
