The LI6400/LI6800 is used widely to determine photosynthetic parameters by measuring CO2 and H20. Though not a high throughput phenotyping device it is considered the standard benchmark for photosynthesis measurements. This requires a profound understanding of the li6400/li6800 for who is interested in photosynthesis related measurements in general. Therefore we offer a 2 day workshop to enable proper standard operation and understanding of the devices. For those familiar to the li6400 also the introduction only to the li6800 can be considered.

This is an internal workshop for DPPN members.

Veranstaltungsort
Forschungszentrum Jülich, Gebäude 06.2 IBG-2, Seminarraum 406, 2.Stock

One of the current problems in plant phenotyping is the high entry level and maintenance expenses of new sensors and infrastructures. This prevents many research organizations from implementing urgently needed approaches due to lack of investment budget and technical personnel. Therefore, affordable phenotyping concepts and methods need to be disseminated to a wider plant science and breeding community by identifying demands, increasing the awareness and collecting and sharing available knowledge on lean solutions. This workshop is primarily intended for experimental biologists, who are looking for alternative low-cost approaches in different fields of plant phenotyping. The workshop will include lectures, demonstrations, hands-on and discussions on different topics like smartphone applications and programming, structural imaging, multispectral imaging and field phenotyping methods for roots and shoots

Training Workshop on Data Management, organized by the German Crop BioGreenformatics Network, 07.-08.12.2015, Munich

Organized by scientists of the German Crop BioGreenformatics Network (de.NBI), which include members of the DPPN nodes, a training workshop on “Data Management for Plant Genomics & Phenomics -¬ Standards, Tools and Infrastructures”, held at the Helmholtz Zentrum München, was a big success. More than 20 participants from international facilities and from DPPN/EPPN used the opportunity for hands-on training and intense discussions on the future of data handling. The de.NBI-GCBN is specialized in the field of Omics data analysis for crop plants and is well-known for its software platforms. In that context, the course focused on the workflow from genotypes to phenotypes. In particular, the participants gained insights into the use of web portals to access plant genome resources as well as into standards to exchange and annotate plant phenotypic data. Finally, infrastructures for publishing phenotypic data and APIs to embedding those into your own programs were presented.

Ontologies are increasingly used in the semantic description of biological and medical data from creation to publication and consumption by semantically enabled applications. To be effective, such ontologies must be of high quality and work well together. Therefore, issues like techniques for ontology use, good ontology design, ontology maintenance, and ontology coordination need to be addressed. The International Conference on Biomedical Ontology (ICBO) series is designed to meet this need. ICBO 2015, the sixth event in the highly successful series, will bring together representatives of all major communities involved in ontology use and development in biomedical research, health care, and related areas.

The lectures and practica were taught by drs D.Fanourakis, F.Fiorani, O.Muller and H.Poorter covering topics such as plant growth analysis and plant phenotyping techniques. For the practica MAICH prepared tomato plants at different growth conditions; 2 salt concentrations, shade, water stress and low and high nutrients. These plants were “phenotyped” by the students and the results were presented by the students in a final oral presentation.
The students from MAICH had to take an exam in January 2015 about the Phenomics course in which questions were prepared and checked by the DPPN teachers. The feed-back received by the students at the end of the course was very positive and concentrated on the advantage of having the possibility to discuss with the teachers as well as the significant stimulation of having multiple teachers who interacted among themselves.

The workshop Computer Vision Problems in Plant Phenotyping (CVPPP 2014) took place in the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) Zurich, Switzerland, on September 12, 2014, in conjunction with the European Conference on Computer Vision (ECCV 2014, http://eccv2014.org/), the highest ranking computer vision conference in Europe. It was part of the official workshop program of ECCV 2014 and by this the workshop and the topic ‘plant phenotyping’ reached worldwide visibility in the computer vision and image processing community. We received more than 20 full paper submissions from 20 countries for blind review, including contributions from academia as well as industry. 14 papers were accepted for oral or poster presentation at the half a day long workshop offering a high quality program to the 40 participants.
Together with the workshop we organized an image analysis challenge, the Leaf Segmentation Challenge, with the task to fully automatically segment leaves in top-view images of rosette plants (typical in phenotyping experiments) under a variety of conditions. Training and test sets contained 284 images of plants, together with detailed leaf-wise ground truth segmentation. 8 solutions of 4 groups were submitted and the best solution presented at the workshop. The training dataset is now publicly available, allowing computer vision scientists to further work on this challenging problem.
Due to the extremely positive feedback of the workshop participants, follow up workshops are currently planned for with a possibly yearly schedule.

"SPATIAL ECOLOGY AND EARTH OBSERVATION"

 

Abstract:

Operational hyper-temporal image data sets (i.e. images obtained at regular fixed intervals) are now widely available and yield accurate results. Image processing techniques developed for hyper-temporal image analysis have elements in common with hyper-spectral imagery, with satellite hyper-spectral imagery being on the threshold of becoming operational. In this seminar I will review a number of spatial ecological applications using hypertemporal and hyperspectral imagery including vegetation quantity (biomass) and quality (foliar biochemistry), species identification and richness, as well as animal movement and migration. The concept of essential biodiversity variables (EBVs) and the role of earth observation in global mapping and monitoring of EBVs will be discussed. Finally the limitations and potential of planned satellite missions will be discussed.

Understanding Root Behavior

Abstract:

Since Darwin's puzzled observation of root oscillatory behaviors, also known as circumnutations, the reasons and factors that regulate the amplitude of these oscillations remain largely unknown. In this talk, I will put forward a novel hypothesis and a simple unified model of stimulus-driven behavior capable of explaining experimental data and generating novel predictions. I will also mention ongoing work in using this model to control an artificial root system in physics-based simulations and in a novel robotic device.

Neo-functionalisation of the flowering pathway for vegetative storage-organ formation in potato

Abstract:

Potato reproductive development is regulated by the sensing of environmental cues resulting in the activation of a signalling cascade. Signal molecules synthesised in the perceiving organs are transported to the cells and tissues that go on to develop into flowers or tubers. Although soil nutrients and factors such as water availability and ambient temperature are important signals for reproductive development, the major environmental component for tuberisation is day-length. Transition from long to short days also influences important agronomic traits such as earliness and maturity. A major-effect QTL for Plant Maturity and Earliness in potato has been mapped on Chromosome 5 in diploid clones and in tetraploid material. Using map based cloning together with deep bi-allelic sequencing of chromosome 5, we have identified a gene coding for a central regulator underlying this major-effect QTL. We show that this gene, named StCDF1, belongs to the family of DOF transcription factors that regulates tuberisation and plant life-cycle length, by acting as a mediator between the circadian clock and the mobile tuberisation signal StSP6A. We have shown that naturally occurring allelic variants of this protein, evade post-translational regulation, thereby leading to early tuber formation and shortened life-cycle. We propose that this allelic variation has allowed the cultivation of potato outside the Andean centre of origin, under long-day conditions of spring and summer that prevail during the growing season in northern temperate latitudes.

The control of seed germination

Seed dormancy and longevity determine germination and seedling establishment in the field. It has been known since several decades that dormancy and germination are regulated by the plant hormones abscisic acid and gibberellins. However, very little is known about other involved factors and about the molecular pathways regulating these traits. During the last few years several novel genes and proteins determining dormancy and germination have been identified, for a large part based on work with the model plant Arabidopsis. I will give an overview of our present knowledge of these different factors and show their roles in dormancy, longevity, and germination.

7th EPSO Conference (Porto Heli, Griechenland)

Anfang01.09.2013Ende04.09.2013VeranstaltungsortPorto Heli, Greece

Conference themes had been (in European Plant Sciences):

Regulatory networks in plants
Plant response and adaptation to biotic stresses
Plant response and adaptation to abiotic stress
Plant response and adaptation to low resource availability
Climate change - the mitigating role of plants
Global food security – sufficiency and affordability
Global food security – nutritional quality and safety
Plant breeding and sustainability
Plant driven bioeconomy – bioenergy, biofuels, molecular farming, biomaterials
Plant evolution – biodiversity and ecosystems
Science policy – plant science and agriculture

In addition to this conference a workshop of the EPPN Community had taken place http://www.plant-phenotyping-network.eu/eppn/information_workshop, and the presentation of the German Plant Phenotyping Network (DPPN), that started in January 2013.

On occasion of the EPPN-Workshop on this EPSO event DPPN was initially presented to Scientists and EPPN institutions. Strategy and perspectives of DPPN were described by the scientific coordinator, Prof. Schurr. Additionally, the input of the other DPPN partners was presented by Prof. Altmann (IPK Gatersleben) and Prof. Schnitzler (Helmholtz Zentrum München). This Meeting was an initial step into an persistent exchange and cooperation yet to be intensified in the future of both networks. DPPN and EPPN both are coordinated by the Forschungszentrum Jülich. All DPPN partners are embedded in the EPPN Network, already, facilitating further cooperation activities.

Am 05.September 2013 fand ein EPPN Workshop als Side Event der jährlichen EPSO Konferenz in Porto Heli (Griechenland) statt. Dort wurde DPPN erstmals Wissenschaftlerinnen und Wissenschaftlern der den in  EPPN organisierten Einrichtungen vorgestellt. Neben dem wissenschaftlichen Koordinator, Prof. Schurr (Forschungszentrum Jülich), der die Zielsetzung und Perspektiven von DPPN erläuterte,  präsentierten Prof. Altmann (IPK Gatersleben) und Prof. Schnitzler (Helmholtz-Zentrum München) die Beiträge der anderen DPPN-Standorte. Dieses Treffen war ein erster Schritt hin zu einem intensiven Austausch von Vertretern beider Netzwerke.  Sowohl DPPN, wie auch EPPN werden vom Forschungszentrum Jülich koordiniert. Alle Partner in DPPN sind gleichzeitig auch Partner des EPPN, was zukünftige gemeinsame Aktivitäten begünstigt.
