Automatic High Throughput Plant Phenotyping
We provide solutions for automatic, high throughput analysis and modeling of processes of biological development of plants in laboratories and greenhouses as well as in fields. We create custom solutions that spatially and spatiotemporally analyze and model relevant properties and development gradients of tissues, organs and entire plants. We can additionally model correlations between structures and functions and their interaction with the environment. To do so, we use various, predominantly imaging measurement systems and functional data, e.g. on the protein, transcript and metabolite level.
Methods of machine learning not only obtain more robust results but also, where necessary, integrate existing but not explicitly supplied expertise in developed solutions. Our systems are thus highly flexible in terms of the underlying biological problems and enable high throughput operation. This facilitates the screening of large collections of mutants using a sample that is statistically large enough.
