Imaging and Image Processing for Plant Phenotyping at Forschungszentrum Jülich

7 novembre 2013
Ex Boccherini - Piazza S. Ponziano 6 (Conference Room )
The Institute of Bio- and Geosciences, IBG-2: Plant Sciences at Forschungszentrum Jülich investigates plants and their dynamic interaction with the environment. We target at a deep understanding of the connections between the expressed plant structure and behavior, i.e. the phenotype, and the genetic causes, i.e. the genotype. Investigations are done on different spatial and temporal scales, from microscopic cell structures to fields scales, and from seconds to months. This talk presents different imaging modalities and devices along with image processing solutions for plant phenotyping developed at IBG-2. Applications are e.g. root and leaf growth analyses using optical-flow-like parameter estimation schemes, or structural and functional analyses on plant roots using MRI and PET
