National Plant Phenomics Centre

Lead Research Organisation: Aberystwyth University
Department Name: IBERS

Abstract

This project aims to offer UK plant scientists access to an automated imaging platform, the National Plant Phenomics Centre, that uses robotics to deliver growing plants to a series of high resolution imaging stations for non-destructive sequential recording of growth, physiological and developmental parameters. In conjunction with local expertise in biological image analyses provided by the Vision, Graphics and Visualisation Group in the AU Department of Computer Science the raw data and associated experimental metadata will be processed to extract trait data in a non-subjective highly quantitative manner that can then be related to the underlying genomic makeup of the individuals. The NPPC will utilise international data standards, database architectures and query interfaces appropriate for handling processed plant phenomics data. The raw data will also be stored and will therefore be available for future analysis either by the investigator or, after publication, by other interested scientists.

Description Key findings include:

application of AI to phenotyping
genetic basis of leaf elongation in forage grasses
genetic markers for heat tolerance in wheat
a gene that enables plants to ignore mild water stress
the ability to perdict performance in the feild from single plant trials
longitudinal trait mapping in wheat
root depth QTL in grasses

A number of novel phenotyping techniques have been developed, some of which have been published or further refined and applied more widely in subsequent projects and collaborations
Exploitation Route Findings have supported over 13 successful grant applications (including BBSRC, Innovate-UK, NRN-ser cymru, and EU) with another 3 pending.

Description They have provided the basis of BBC Focus article, the centre is used extensively to showcase modern breeding approaches to farmers, young farmers, breeders, schools and the media. We also aim to influence policymakers, with regard to the need for research into agriculture. Several industrially funded research grants have been obtained. Several examples of data reuse have been provided.
