Technology Platform ROOT


In this platform we develop technology for root phenotyping. In concept studies traits for efficient and less efficient plants are defined. We develop medium-throughput phenotyping infrastructure and methods for structural and functional traits which are analyzed, optimized and tested in the field. Finally based on these developments high throughput platforms for routine characterization of root traits are established.
